Schulz biography now available for preorder

Coming this October is Schulz and Peanuts: A Biography, a major new biographical work by David Michaelis (688 pages!). Both the hardcover and the audiobook are now available for preorder.

And here’s a note on preorders: for a long time, I cautioned folks not to preorder at the first opportunity, as the price might come down. However, Amazon is now publicizing a preorder guarantee — place your order now, and if the price goes down at any time before it ships, you get the lowest price, even if it goes up again before it ships. So really, the best way to lock in the lowest preorder price is to order now. (You can, of course, cancel your order any time before the book ships.)
