Connie Willis, Cheap!

In the last entry I noted I’d be doing a pimp for Subterranean Books today. And here it is, in the form of an e-mail from Subterranean publisher Bill Schafer:
“We sometimes get returns from distributors, and have received back from one a healthy handful of Connie Willis’s Hugo-nominated novella INSIDE JOB in the past week or two. Here’s the deal: These copies are no longer in perfect nick. Some are slightly dinged, some have a scuffed dust jacket. So we’re offering them for $10 (plus $5 shipping), instead of the usual $35 cover price.
“If you’d like to snag a copy, order INSIDE JOB as usual at the SubPress website and mention “Dinged Inside Job” when checking out. (Your shopping cart total and automatic email confirmation won’t reflect the sale price, but don’t worry, we’ll catch it when processing your order. This offer valid until May 1, 2006. If you want to order via PayPal, do NOT use the online store. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll invoice you.)”
There you have it. Also, Asimov’s has the novella online, so if you’d like to preview the story before you buy, here you go.
Pretty cool. Of course, I had to pick up Questions for a Soldier at the same time, since I need the complete OMW set. [pimp for the proprietor as well]
Just wanted to chime in that I got my copy today and it was barely dinged at *all*. Some light edgewear to the DJ and a tiny bump at the base of the spine – I’ve seen worse condition being listed as ‘near fine’ by used sellers. Myself, in a professional capacity, I’d put it at ‘very good’. I was *very* pleased. And I’m excited to read it too!
I was wondering,…do you have these boooks available in offline book stores rather than online..? and if so can you plase tell me where can i find them..?
