Pay What You Want Promo – UFO2

February 14, 2021

Small press publishers like UFO Publishing rely heavily on conventions to sell physical books. That’s where we meet new readers and reconnect with fans; that’s where readings and panels and launch events help us sell literature that’s printed on dead trees. Since we haven’t done a live convention in a year now (and I don’t expect to attend any for at least another six months or even longer), I’m looking into other, creative ways to support the company and to re-home those lovely printed books from our warehouse (aka garage) and onto your shelves.

This is one such experiment. For a limited time, I’m going to offer Unidentified Funny Objects 2 at a significant discount, utilizing the pay-what-you-want model! (With the minimum price set basically at breakeven, since shipping is also free.)

For a limited time you can pick up a UFO2 paperback for as little as $7.99, shipped within the United States, or grab the ebook for as little as $2.99.

If this promotion does well, we’ll offer some of our other titles for sale in this manner as well.

The Hex Is In by Mike Resnick Cover Reveal and eARC

June 22, 2020

Here’s your first look at the cover of Mike Resnick’s The Hex Is In: The Fast Life and Fantastic Times of Harry the Book.

From boxing matches to dragon races to elections, there’s no wager Harry won’t cover—so long as the odds are right.

Harry the Book operates out of a Manhattan bar booth, with his personal wizard and his zombie bodyguard close at hand. He’ll dope out the odds on any sort of contest, even if that gets him into a heap of trouble.

Be it conniving gamblers, lovelorn wizards, or flea-bitten werewolves, when it comes to the misadventures of Harry and his crew one thing is certain: the hex is always in.

This book contains fifteen tales of Harry the Book—the complete set of Resnick’s beloved Damon Runyon-inspired urban fantasy yarns, including one brand-new story and several never before published in the United States.

Edited by Alex Shvartsman
Introduction by Lezli Robyn
Copy edited by Tarryn Thomas
Cover art by Túlio Brito
Cover design by Jay O’Connell

The book will be published in August. However, we’re taking the page out of Baen’s playbook by offering advance reader copies, available only from our website. eARCs are available right now in MOBI and EPUB formats. Print copies will be shipped in August or late July, at least two weeks prior to book store release. Anyone who orders a print ARC will receive electronic ARCs immediately as well. eARCs are available worldwide while print ARCs are available in United States only. International readers will be able to order print copies from their favorite bookstore soon!
