Sorry if this has been asked somewhere else, but I couldn't find it. I seem to recall seeing on many D3 fan sites a link/ article(s) about Amazon listing a "Diablo: Book of Cain" but then quickly removing the item. Any word on if this is a real thing, and if it is when can we expect to see it. I'd love to have some lore from the time between D2 and D3.

The book of cain is indeed real. It was posted on various online bookstores such as amazon a little while back but it wasn't supposed to be showcased that early so they took it down very quickly. It was then announced at comicon by blizzard to be the book that fills in the 20 year gap between D2 and D3 as told from the perspective of Deckard Cain. the date of realease is still unknown, but most likely it will be a bit before the release of the game or at the same time as the release of the game.

PS: it's not the same book as the interactive one on the D3 website, it will be much larger ( cant remember what the quoted page number was, but it was definitely 100+ pages at least)

I'm hoping it will be out soon. Also here's hoping it will be more than 100 measly pages. It'd be awesome to have an epic tale to read before diving into the next game.

yeah I set it at 100+ pages because I knew it was 3 digits, but couldn't remember exactly. for some reason the numbers 1, 4 and 3 seem to stick out in my mind, but not sure of what order. Here's to hoping it's more like 431 rather than 134!
