TELEPORT TO THE MOTHERSHIP

LATE-BREAKING NEWS

As part of a somewhat expensive Amazon ad campaign, we've dropped the price on The Fugitive Heir to $0.99. If this leads to better follow-on sales of The Fugitive Pair and The Fugitive Snare, we'll leave it at this price. C'mon, buy the complete set!

• All current issues of Stupefying Stories are now available free for Kindle Unlimited subscribers. See the right column for links. For non-US customers, these should automatically redirect to your local manifestation of Amazon. If they don't, let me know.

EOCL Sale: Stupefying Stories 1.2

2011-11One of my pet peeves is the traditional publishing industry “All Rights for the Remaining Balance of Eternity” contract, so when we launched the e-book version of Stupefying Stories, I included a “three years and out” self-destruct clause in the contract. To my surprise we’re still here three years later, and that self-destruct clause is now armed and ready to blow.

Therefore, this is your LAST CHANCE to buy Stupefying Stories 1.2 (a.k.a., the November 2011 issue) at the special end-of-contract-life price of $0.99! Because as of midnight Central Time on November 30, 2014, this one goes out of print, never to be re-released again!

And now, the catalog copy...

STUPEFYING STORIES 1.2
Released November 2011

No sooner was 1.1 released than STUPEFYING STORIES began growing very rapidly. This book contains more and longer stories than 1.1 and marks the first appearance in our pages of Aaron Bradford Starr, Clare Deming, Sarah Frost, and fan favorite Rebecca Roland, as well as another story from Anatoly Belilovsky and one of the most disturbing horror stories we’ve ever published, “The Oily,” by E. A. Black.
Which has led to considerable confusion ever since. Is STUPEFYING STORIES a science fiction magazine that sometimes publishes horror or a horror magazine that sometimes publishes science fiction? Somehow people fixated on “The Oily” and didn’t notice that this book also contains two of the funniest stories we’ve ever published, “First Impressions” and “Watch This!”
Contents:
  • FIRST IMPRESSIONS, by Aaron Bradford Starr
  • THE BAMBOO GARDEN, by Clare L. Deming
  • HOME SECURITY, by Gary McKenzie
  • BORROWED FEATHERS, by Sarah Frost
  • IF THIS BE MAGIC, by Anatoly Belilovsky
  • THE OILY, by E. A. Black
  • IN FALL, AFTER THE HARVEST, by S. Travis Brown
  • THE KING OF ASH AND BONES, by Rebecca Roland
  • WATCH THIS!, by Henry Vogel

Available for the Amazon Kindle at these links: United States, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Japan, India, Canada, Brazil, Mexico, and Australia.

Also available for the Barnes & Noble Nook and in the Apple iTunes Store.

Inventory Clearance Sale: It Came From The Slushpile

20100800Yes, it’s our original print edition, done as a prototype to see just how closely we could emulate the look and feel of a vintage digest-sized pulp in what was initially planned to be a quarterly magazine. We spent a small fortune on this one, and aside from my never being really happy with the way the cover turned out, it worked...but it also convinced me our money was far better spent on paying writers and artists more rather than on keeping paper mills and print shops in business.

Nonetheless, we still have a few boxes of copies of this one taking up space in the warehouse, so from now through December 31, 2014, we’re selling it out for the blowout price of $1.99, plus the usual Amazon shipping charges. Then, as of midnight Central time on 12/31/2014, it’s going out-of-print, never to be reissued again!

P.S. Be sure to get your copy from K&B Booksellers, as K&B is the only dealer selling fresh-from-the-box new copies at this price. (Some optimists out there think this one is a valuable collector’s item worth $45 or more!)
