To help demystify future readers:

1. "the an ed" refers to the Anniversary Edition

2. "the book" refers to the hardcover strategy guide that comes with the Anniversary Edition

See: Ares Games' announcement of the Anniversary Release

(Sorry Mikael, I don't know anything.)

Still no actual news - but here's my thoughts about why we haven't heard anything.

As there are still a few copies of the AE left to sell (it didn't sell out in 2 weeks as some people imagined it would), this may have delayed any announcement.

I can't imagine they would mention the fact that you may be able to buy the book, board etc. separately while the AE is still for sale. This could prevent sales of the AE package, which is based on containing exclusive (so far) limited edition items.

At least they haven't said that they won't be selling the book on it's own - so there is hope.

Two weeks? Some around here predicted it would sell out in two minutes.

I bought one but hope the guide will be available in some form for folks who aren't able to.

From the FAQ on Ares website:
faq wrote:
We are currently asking permission to the licensor, Middle-earth Enterprises, to offer some of the contents as individual items. Our license is limited to board games, and does not include other items. Pending approval, we hope that we'll be able to offer the slipcase with the two volumes, and possibly the game boards, for separate purchase. We will definitely not sell the painted miniatures separately from the rest. We don't expect a final answer on this topic for a few days, so please don't make your purchasing decision based on these considerations.

The Anniversary Edition is far out of my budget. But, I'd love the larger map and the AE book. Has there been any recent and/or final news one way or the other about whether these will be available outside of the anniversary edition itself.
