    Shouldn’t it be “pushed forward”? Surely the future is forwards and the past is backwards.

    back and forward can be viewed in terms of their relation to the speaker. i can say something is pushed back when it is moved farther away from me, whether spatially or temporally.

    back and backwards aren’t synonyms ;)

    The term “backwards” is used here to denote how the release has been delayed and thus, further from its planned publication schedule. In that sense, it has moved backwards relative to the publication process, by a week.

    Dang. For a second there I got the release schedule confused and was really glad to know I would have an extra week to spend on all the stuff that came from Amazon today…Alas, I’ll just have to read more. Tragedy. I’m crying on the inside.
