Quick Personal Pimp: 50% Sale on “Sagan” and Others

Subterranean Press is having a short sale on the latest reprints of “The Sagan Diary” and three other titles (Rude Mechanicals by Kage Baker, Promises to Keep by Charles de Lint and D.A. by Connie Willis): Each is 50% off through tomorrow (that’s 2/1/08). That means you can pick up the book version of “Sagan,” including Bob Eggleton’s excellent cover and interior art, for just $10 (plus shipping), and get equally great deals on those other equally great books. Here are the details — do pay attention to them, because you’ll need to specify the sale when you order.

Okay, unplugging the DSL now. Later.

  1. $10 + (international) shipping + Canada’s GST (5 %) + the over $7 Canadian Customs charge so that they can collect and process the GST. Yes, they want to charge me over $7 to collect $0.50.

    I really like John’s books, and have even ordered stuff from Subterranean before. But I just can’t bring myself to give the Canadian government almost $8 in “taxes” to buy something that costs $10. This does not make me happy.

  2. Yes,

    Go buy it! I’m memorialized in it. (Well with 185 or so other members of the 16th Brigade / Company D.) We died with our Anti-Gravity boots on.

  3. DJL: You can get it on Amazon.ca Not that I’m in Canada, mind you.

    Me? I ordered a copy for myself while ordering Christmas presents for other people — my generosity to myself has apparently cost me. (grin) Damn you, Scalvi!

  4. Have The Sagan Diary, but am intrigued by the mention of “The Sagan Dairy.” Hope it’s homogeneous with Diary and doesn’t skim too many sales. Maybe there’s an opportunity for cross-marketing: Got Scalzi?

  5. The Sagan Dairy – sounds a bit on the cheesy side. Is this Scalzi milking his fanbase or what? Trying to cream a bit more off our bank balances, I say. Well he’s not going to butter me up with such blandishments.

    (If it were earlier in the day I could mine this lactic seam good and proper . . . .)

  6. I purchased a copy, and had SubPress send it to my uncle, who really enjoyed Old Man’s War. At that price, it’s too good a read not to disburse widely.
