Nope. John le Carré's characters didn't appear to be the singing and dancing type. :P
I pre-ordered the Strategy Guide back in July, along with a number of other products. This order has been "pending" since July ... it's now November. I don't know if the Strategy Guide is what is holding up shipment of everything else in this order. Will the delay of the Strategy Guide mean this entire order won't ship until February?
Unless you specified the order to ship preorders or backorders separately, it will hold the order until all parts are ready and in the warehouse. Contact Customer Service so they can split your order up for you.

If this has already been covered and someone has a link for me, sweet, but, why isn't this part of a subscription?
Because a lot of people who subscribe to the Pathfinder RPG line (which this book is a part of) are not the target audience for this book—it's geared more towards people that do not have 10+ years of d20 system mastery. After including the Beginner Box with RPG subscriptions, Paizo got a lot of feedback from customers asking not to include such material in their subscriptions by default.
Are there any other books lately (say, last 18 months or so) that I may have missed because they aren't part of a sub?

If the Chinese printer screwed up as it appears, I bet someone has already been sent to a gulag for it.
This is a really extreme reaction, and really uncalled for. An interesting fact is that we've had more people complain about the print quality of our products when it's printed in North America than when it's printed in China.
I thin Paizo should make the PDF available for purchase, and reimburse/charge $10 less to subscribers who should get one for free on the processing of their phsical book order/sub. Less of a wait for the desperate! :D
Trying to get this set up and functioning correctly is a technical hurdle we do not need on our plates right now, to be honest.
Third-party bundles are handled in an entirely different manner, and there are a number of hoops and manual hand-holding that needs to be done when this happens. Trying to do something similar with our own products opens up a whole different can of worms.
Well, I think the Advanced Class Guide getting the wrong logo wasn't the printer's fault. And my sense is that the card game isn't printed by the same printers as the RPG line.
Correct and correct.

Also, Paizo try very hard not to make bricks and mortar stores mad at them by selling through their website earlier than the street date. This would seem to come close to this, so it's probably unlikely.
Both of these things, yes.
Having another delay on this book is immensely frustrating for everybody here at Paizo, but we would rather have a book delayed to meet our production standards than sell sub-standard product.
Wow. How does that even happen? Is there a transition point where the ink is dry enough to look dry, but still damp enough to transfer given pressure and time?
There is, but there's also a lot of environmental factors (relative humidity, the density of the ink on the rollers) that could have affected things.
The PDF Sale does not stack with the Pathfinder Advantage discount—generally speaking, only the greater of discounts will apply when you shop on Paizo.com, with the exception of our holiday card discount.

I had to set the game down for a few days after the Overlord DLC. That was...trying. But the payoff in ME3...

(Also, I really had to make a Mass Effect reference on N7 Day. :D )
