I once received one from amazon.co.uk (Lords of the North) that had been bent while shipping. It looked like a rhombus. I couldn't be bothered sending it back though and found a way to bend it back right with some very thick encyclopedia's.

On his site forum Iggulden wants to do another three to the end of Kublai Khan's life. There is 35 years to cover before Kublai even came to power, but I do believe the next one is completely devoted to Ogedai.
