The Age of Misrule Omnibus has sold out in the UK, although copies might still be available at retailer level. The Omnibus was always intended to be a short-term special edition, but the publisher was overwhelmed by the initial demand.
The story will still be available in the individual volumes – World’s End, Darkest Hour and Always Forever. World’s End has just gone into its fifth printing so there should be loads of copies around.
Always Forever, Book Three of the Age of Misrule has sold out of its first printing from Pyr before it even reaches the shelves. A second printing is on the way.
The demand came in at such a high level I even had to forego my complementary copies of this printing to ensure the stores were supplied. I’m very pleased with the US launch. Pyr’s team has done a great job of getting the books into the shops, and they’ve been well-received by the critics (for instance, here.)
Here’s the final version of the cover to the Pyr US edition of Always Forever, Age of Misrule Book Three. Another fantastic piece of work by the artist John Picacio. Warning: don’t look directly into Balor’s eye…

And just so you can see how much thought has gone into the design of these editions, here are the spines for all three books:
