Thanks, Chris,

I've got the first four volumes -- wonderful books -- and look forward to adding the final two.
NESFA Press has received the books from the printer and the warehouse is fully stocked. Expect the NESFA Press order page to go live for these two volumes any time now, possibly today. Amazon and others will follow over the subsequent weeks.
