Yon City of Ugarit

Yes, The City of Ugarit at Tell Ras Shamra arrived yesterday afternoon at about 2:30; seven pallets full, 200 boxes, 90 degrees Fahrenheit. We don't have a dock that trucks can back up to, the street is too narrow, so we end up doing it by hand. Each case weighed 19 kg (42 pounds), handed off to the next person in line, 160 times. We kept 40 boxes for the shipping warehouse to cover backorders and new orders that will come pouring in—won't they?

The backorders should start shipping today, so look for yours in the next several days (unless you are international). I have mine at my desk and it is a beautiful color book with updates from the French version inserted at the end of most chapters, both bibliography and text.
