    Hey Everyone

    I was looking though Joe's wikipedia page when I found mention of this short story "Yesterday, Near A Village Called Barden". Apparently it was present in some copies of "The Heroes" from Waterstone UK.

    So is this short story present in every Gollancz HC book or was it released as a chapbook exclusively by Waterstone? Anybody who knows more about this? Thanks

    Ah, yes, I know something about this.

    Waterstones had 5,000 hardback copies with the story bound in at the end. That's the only place you can get it right now. Or perhaps could get it, as they've probably sold most of them. It'll probably go out along with the enhanced e-book, as and when that happens, hopefully soon...

    Thanks for the info Joe :) So looks like it will be a bit difficult to get my hands on one of those Waterstone copies. I guess I'll make do with a regular one.

    Yesterday, Near A Village Called Barden

    Hey guys,

    The extra Bremer Dan Gorst-perspective story wasn't present in my kindle copy - The Heroes [Special Edition] (First Law World 2). I looked all over the internet for an ebook that contains it, but with no result.

    Any idea where I can find a digital version of this story? Anthology or a different edition of the "The Heroes"?

    Thanks!

    PS The Heroes is the best fantasy book I've read so far (I was freshly converted to the genre, but never the less)!
