Some sale books!

 

We know, books are expensive, so any chance to save a few bucks on them is a good thing. We've got some odds and ends here to clear out at discounted prices.  If you see something you want, send us an email at info@valancourtbooks.com, or a message on Facebook or Twitter. (Please don't reply to this post; we probably won't see it.) We'll delete items from the list as they run out.

The free shipping promotion on regular priced books does not apply to sale books. Shipping will be with Media Mail and runs $4 for one book, a little more for multiple books. U.S. only please (international postage usually costs a minimum of $35).


World Horror Hardcovers - a few unnumbered copies available at a discount

The 300 numbered copies are down to just one (it's numbered #299).  It's $50.

We had to print a few extra copies of the hardcover, in case any were lost or damaged in transit to us from the printers, or from us to customers, and we're going to offer those at $39 each. They have the same content as the numbered copies, except (obviously) they are unnumbered.

 

Ugly books

Ugly books are unread copies that arrived to us with some sort of cosmetic blemish. This might be a cover that is printed slightly off center, a minor issue with the lamination on the cover, some excess binding glue on the spine, things like that. If you're not too finicky, these are a good way to get cheap copies. They're not bad books, just not good enough to sell for full price.

Available:

Harry Adam Knight, Slimer (reg. $16, sale $10); 1 avail.
Barry Hines, A Kestrel for a Knave (reg. $16, sale $10); 1 avail.
Garrett Boatman, Stage Fright (reg. $18, sale $10)


Scratch and dent books

Scratch and dent books are unused, unread books, but which suffered some kind of accident in transit, usually a crease on a cover (or an interior page), a dented spine, or the like. Sometimes people buy scratch-and-dent books from our sales and when they receive them, they tell us they don't see anything wrong with them. Honestly, they're probably in better shape than 90% of the books at your local Barnes & Noble, but they're not perfect.

Available:

The Valancourt Book of World Horror Stories, vol. 1 (reg. $20, sale $12)
The Women of Weird Tales hardcover (reg. $25, sale $12)
