To order: link to website or email address where the book/zine can be ordered
NB: We list no more than one book/zine per week by the same author or publisher!
There is no selecting, editing and/or curating involved. If your books meet the formal criteria, it will be listed regardless of its content and our tastes.
We only list books or zines that cannot be bought via Amazon or commercial chain book stored. Also no Blurb books or MagCloud magazines, since those can be found easily via Blurb's/MagCloud's website.
We only accept announcements about existing print books or zines (strictly no fundraisers). By "zine" we mean not regularly published magazines, but rather one-time publications (which are often xeroxed/cheaply printed and stapled, thus resembling a magazine).
At the time of the listing, the book/zine has to be available (no "sold out") so people can actually order it online. No repeat announcements or "special offers" or "30% off" sale announcements.
