Signed Books Update

Just received a box of signed books from Jacqueline Carey.

Earlier this week, I receive signed copies of November Mourns by Tom Piccirilli.

Janny Wurts has agreed to sign copies of her books. Working on getting them from Meisha Merlin now.

I also have some signed books from Caitlin R. Kiernan and Martha Wells to add to the site in the next day or so. Now I get to go back to the drawing board and find some more authors who would be willing to sign for books for the store. Keep those suggestions coming!


New Stuff

Yesterday was a big magazine day. The August Fantasy & Science Fiction and Issue 4 of Flytrap arrived in the morning mail. In the afternoon we received a shipment from Sams Dot Publishing, so we now stock Aoife’s Kiss, Beyond Centauri (childrens), Champagne Shivers, and Illumen magazine.

I may be late in noticing these…

Golden Gryphon has a few new books in the queue:
* From the Files of the Time Rangers by Richard Bowes
* The Fiction Factory by Jack Dann
* The Cuckoo’s Boys by Robert Reed

as does Tachyon Publications:
* Cultural Breaks by Brian Aldiss
* Greetings and Other Stories by Terry Bisson
* Numbers Don’t Lie by Terry Bisson
* The James Tiptree Award Anthology 2
* Burn by James Patrick Kelly

And then there is Pitch Black Books… I just heard about this one in someone else’s journal. (sorry I forget who it was):
* Lords of Swords ed. by Daniel E. Blackston

This has to be the first time the same author has had 3 books in our top 5. Most customers are buying two or all three of those books and some are buying multiple copies. Despite this, Night of Knives managed to hold the top spot for the second week. We’re almost out of copies of that one and have already reordered. Inside Job is now officially out of print, but we still have copies in stock.

Recent Arrivals and Coming Soon

Came home yesterday to find two large boxes waiting for me. The first box was our shipment of Inside Job by Connie Willis (signed) and the second contained Pieces of Hate by Tim Lebbon (signed). Combined with yesterdays arrival of signed paperbacks (City of the Dead, Terminal, The Rising)from Brian Keene, I’m going to be very busy packing boxes tonight. Can’t complain, I could certainly use the extra business right now.

I also heard that two magazines, Zahir and Paradox are shipping. We should have them soon. Looking forward to them.

Based on sales at Clarkesworld Books ( for the week ending June 5th, 2005.

The first shipment of Night of Knives arrived from PS Publishing late last week and I’ve already shipped close to 60 copies back out. I won’t be surprised if this one goes out of print soon since there were only 500 printed. Haven’t read it yet, but the reviews have been pretty good.

Bluebound also arrived last week. It was released in three states, chapbook (above), signed limited chapbook, and a lettered edition. Just found out that we’re one of only 3 or 4 stores selling the limited and lettered. Babbage Press has done a very nice job on the presentation of the limited and lettered editions. They obviously put a lot of work into it.


New Issue of Weird Tales

Weird Tales #337

I just received the cover and table of contents for the next issue of Weird Tales and made it available for preorder. The issue after this one will be a double issue.
