Flatland commerce

if anyone out there is thinking abt picking up a copy of flatland, you might wanna let me know rather quick … there are 8 copies at Pages Books in Calgary, and i have 27 copies here available for sale, and then thats it – no more, and it wont be reprinted…

email me at derek@housepress.ca for details …

I don’t know why it won’t be reprinted– that seems stupid, since it only recently came out and it’s already almost sold out. Anyway, you should get one before they’re all gone.

    it was originally published in an edition of 250 copies which i self-financed.
    It wont be reprinted because i simply cant afford to pay for another run.
    but it is available online at UBU as a full text PDF.

  2. derek, from a self-financed perspective, that’s a good idea– a small (affordable, nice) run followed by a .pdf. although it also makes the book less republishable if there’s a .pdf (although, people seem willing to buy bird-book despite its being available as a free .pdf… so there’s more to the buyer’s psychology than just “free” vs. “not free”, i s’pose)

    congrats on such a fast sell-out!!!
