How the Four Well-Travelled Books for $20.00 Grab Bag came to be...
"When you dance with the devil you have to expect bullshit like this. For the 2019 holiday season Amazon placed a record-setting order for PM Press with our distributors. While this might sound like a good thing on the surface, if you have any experience with the book-trade in general and Amazon in particular it most certainly is not. Unless the majority of books are actually sold, publishers lose out big time. But this is not the way things work in hyper-mega-capitalist societies. More, More, MORE! Lower prices! Free shipping! Volume, baby! Quantity over quality! Immediate Gratification! NOW! We contacted our distributor trying to keep this "wonderful" order from being fulfilled but were informed that "it was too late". Of course, any publisher would prefer a smaller order with a reasonable expectation of selling most all of the books to a huge order (in which the publisher always pays for shipping) where almost all the books are eventually returned dinged up and somewhat worn due to the costly roundtrip of stupidity. Add to that the fact that all these "negative sales/returns" began to hit just before and then throughout the Covid-19 shutdown and it was quite the shitstorm.
Normally with our much smaller number of dinged up returns we try to offer "$5 sale tables" at certain events throughout the year. But, as we all know, every event of this type has been cancelled for the next year. So we've brought our $5 sale tables online- in the form of these Four Well-Travelled Books for $20.00 Grab Bag. We hope you can at least get some good, cheap reading out of this financial drubbing."
Even if the cover or spine may be dinged up a smidge we promise all the words and art are there— and that's the important bit!
