CLAMP in America: Officially Cancelled  
Hello there. I like to bring happy news and good stuff, but today's news aren't as great as I'd like them to be.

On Random House's site (the one who owns DelRey Press), there's a form you can submit to ask your questions. So, out of curiosity with the recent "is it cancelled or not" problem, I sent the fatidical question and just received an answer from them. Mails are as follow:

Dear Del Rey staff, there's quite a confusion about CLAMP in America's release date - or, rather, if it's really going to be released at all. Many costumers said their pre-orders for the book were cancelled all of a sudden on some sites. However, there's still a pre-order option for Amazon.com...

So, I humbly ask you: CLAMP in America will be released on June 28th as scheduled? Or will it be delayed AGAIN? Or will it be cancelled once and for all? Please, enlighten me.

Thanks for your attention!

we should sen them letters to let them know that we want that book to be published! because they are playing with us... they are not supposed to do that ... we as clients have the right to claim for what was promised to us :(

Thx for sharing the news. I bet it has to do with Kodansha's activity. Maybe they'll end up printing it.

And they don't even give us a bloody reason why T_T. If they are going to cancel something that people have been waiting for for years, then they atleast owe it to the fans to explain WHY it was cancelled. Can they just not be arsed, or would they rather us not know the reason?

thanks for posting this!
