Does this mean that if I'm going to GenCon on Wednesday, it will be unlikely that the book will arrive in time? That would be a bummer- we're playing in Society events, and hoped to have our books in time.

It means that, if you're really lucky and the postal gods smile upon you, you MAY get it a day or two before the show.
We can't fulfill pre-orders before the official release date of the product (the first day of Gen Con) because our retail partners would (rightfully) kill us.
I suggest crossing your fingers and praying to the postal gods.
Thanks for the response... I can't hope that the postal gods will smile upon me- our mail frequently runs a day or two later than the rest of the world, and I'm leaving town before the mail arrives on Wednesday, making it even less likely. Hopefully one of my friends will pick one up at the con so that we can use it for the Society games. :)
