I was just wondering if the Angel Beats VN was out yet and if so where can I get it?

Looks like no English version but there is the Japanese version if you know the language.

Google is your friend, I didn't even know what Angel Beats was and I found your answer in less than a minute.

There will be six "Volumes" total in the Angel Beats VN. The first volume was released earlier this year; it covers most of the plot the anime, and also tells the stories of Matsushita (the Judo guy), Iwasawa (the first lead singer), and Yui (the second lead singer). I think the goal was to release roughly one per year until all six volumes are out.

If you speak Japanese, I think you can download a demo here:

http://key.visualarts.gr.jp/angelbeats/ ; I expect that you can find info on how to buy it there, or at amazon.jp

If you don't speak Japanese... it'll be awhile. Key has only ever licensed two of its games (through Sekai Project) in North America: Planetarian (out now) and Clannad (coming soon). If Clannad sells well--and the Key folks feel that Sekai did a good job--there is a pretty good chance that other Key games might get official translations, and the Angel Beats VN would seem to be a prime candidate. But as those translation projects haven't even been conceived of yet, that would still be a couple years away, at least, if it happens at all.

There is also a group trying to put together a team for a fan translation project, but I have no idea how that's going.

Here is a ton of info on the vn, http://kazamatsuri.org/angel-beats/ It has links to translation updates and more.

Also amiami has the game if you search angel beats pc, but like the others said translations is far from done, barley even started, translation can take an extremely long time as in more than 5 years or it can go quick as in 1-2 years. But like the guy above said only clannad (wip) and planetarian have official English, the others you have to buy the Japanese game and apply the patch. There is a rumor that Harmonia (upcoming key vn) will get released in English as well.
