Why Cold Tonnage?
"... the dragon Griaule, a vast mile-long beast who had been struck immobile yet not lifeless by a wizard's spell, and who ruled over the Carbonales Valley, controlling in every detail the lives of the inhabitants, making known his will by the ineffable radiations emanating from the cold tonnage of his brain." Lucius Shepard, from "The Scalehunter's Beautiful Daughter", 1988
KEN COWLEY'S WEIRD TALES
On behalf of Ken's family, and with the invaluable help of Alistair Durie, I am selling his WEIRD TALES collection (many already sold, this is what I have left). Please click HERE to see a list of his WEIRD TALES for sale (1925-1954).
MY THIRD ANNUAL SUMMER SIZZLER SALE NOW ON - from now till next Sunday (27th July - midnight).
all (filled) orders over £50 - 10% discount
all (filled) orders over £100 - 20% discount
all (filled) orders over £250 - 30% discount
all (filled) orders over £500 - 40% discount
Postage extra (though maximum UK postage is £8.00). For large/expensive orders overseas I might send by International insured/tracked, which might(though not necessarily) be more than the postage shown. I will of course quote first.
Almost everything on my website (over 8500 items) is included in this sale - nothing has been taken off my website for this sale period and I have not increased the price temporarily on any item for this sale period. It is a genuine sale. For example my three volume Philip Pullman NORTHERN LIGHTS trilogy (all fine/fine and signed by the author), presently listed for £4000 - will be available to purchase this week for £2400, or my 12-volume Tolkien set (£3500) will be available for £2100.
This discount also applies also to the remaining issues of Ken Cowley's WEIRD TALES which can be founded listed separately above - follow the link.
PLACE YOUR ORDER AS USUAL THROUGH CHECKOUT, WITHOUT PAYING, AND I WILL EMAIL THE TOTAL TO BE PAID WITH THE APPLICABLE DISCOUNT.
Do note however: A FEW ITEMS (less than one hundred, and by no means the expensive items) ARE EXCLUDED FROM THE MAXIMUM DISCOUNTS (of 30% and 40%) ON OFFER - these are all books I am selling on consignment for other people, several of whom (not all) are unwilling to lose 30% or 40% of the existing price (on top of my commission for selling them. Which is fair enough). Additionally if an order is placed for say, a dozen or so NEW IN-PRINT books (at cover price), I might not be able to supply those at the higher discounts (as my discount from the publishers is no more than 30% - 40% anyway). The best way to get the maximum discounts for this sort of order is to include a few non in-print books as well.
As you might already realise, all books ordered through my website are deleted from the website automatically (unless I have multiple copies) so if you really want that one particular book it is best to order quickly (and not necessarily wait till next weekend) so no-one else can get it.
Payment can be staggered over a few weeks for large/expensive orders, if necessary, just ask me first.
