Yeah, B&N missed the Hard Case boat and only carry a select few from name authors (hard to turn down the one from Stephen King, for example).
I have three Borders within driving distance and all carry Hard Case, though now it looks like each gets two copies of a title rather than a more face-out-display-worthy three or five copies.
Not really a surprise there, I'm afraid. Borders is having an even rougher time than most retailers these days.

My Borders still carries them and has since the beginning. My local B&N,
though, has never carried them.
