Why???? The books keep getting better and better as the series progresses, IMHO the first book is the weakest in the series barely. It's a fantastic series, and I'm more than a little annoyed at the publisher for making us wait at least a whole year for her next book after something like two a year since it's inception; and then we have to run out and buy it in hardback having to wait until 2001 until the paperback. According to Hamilton it's not her idea, rumor has it she's finished with the book, but the publisher has complete control over when and if it gets published. Fortunatly I like the series so much that I'll break my rules and buy her in hardback. She's only 1 of 3 maybe 4 authors I'd buy in hardback, the rest I can wait until it comes out in paperback.
