Clarkesworld Books brief return from the dead ends tonight. I have to admit that it’s been a lot of fun to be able to do this again, even if just for a few weeks. A lot of last minute orders are coming in and I figure I’ll spend a good portion of the weekend working on them. The goal is to have the last of them packed up and shipped by early next week.
What happens next? Well, there is still a lot in inventory left, so I have some work to do. Here’s how it will work:
- The website will remain up for dealer orders over $200. (I’ve decided that I don’t need any more proof of being a dealer than an ability to pay. You spend that much, you might as well be a dealer. I’m looking at it the same way our legal system looks at the purchase of other types of drugs.)
- I’ll have tables at Readercon, Albacon, and CapClave. I’m also willing to deliver books to Boskone if you email me.
- Interested authors can email me about buying their books at my cost, which varies from publisher to publisher.
- Perhaps some Ebay auctions, but they are tinkering with the fees again and I’ve just about had enough of that. I’m looking at alternatives.
I’m not sure what time I’ll switch the site back to dealer orders, so if you sneak in sometime past midnight and the website accepts your order, I’ll process it. Oh and since I’ve extended this offer to others, if you don’t have money right now, but really really really want something we have, I’d be happy to set it aside for up to a month for you.
Will the zombie bookstore rise again? Maybe. If it does, it won’t be for a while.
