Hill House's Martian Chronicles: Copies Have Arrived!
We have received copies of Ray Bradbury's THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES. All copies are unopened and in their original packaging. Even though the book is sold-out, according to the publisher, we are selling our copies at the $300 cover price. However, we do have some special items you might want to take advantage of.
(1) We have several copies of the out-of-print hardcover chapbook “Why I Wrote This Book” (see photo to the left), which Hill House sent us prior to their going out of business. The book is signed by Bradbury and one of our copies was auctioned on eBay and sold for $150. We were told by Hill House that 100 copies would be made available, but we believe far fewer were printed. You can have this unique collectible for $75, but only as part of THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES package.
(2) To appease customers who had pre-paid and patiently waited for Hill House to publish THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES, the publisher made framed copies of full-color artwork by Edward Miller available to those who had purchased the book through Gauntlet (see photo below). As with “Why I Wrote This Book” while the limitation is 200 copies I believe far fewer were made and framed. What makes this unique is (a) the new publisher, Subterranean, did NOT use any of these prints in their edition so these are the only copies of the prints available. And (b) each print comes with a plate signed by both Ray Bradbury and artist Edward Miller. These could sell for several hundred dollars, but as part of the package we are offering you would pay $100.
So, here are your choices:
(1) Just the book, THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES for $300
(2) THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES and the signed chapbook for $375
(3) THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES and the signed prints for $400
(4) All 3 items (the book, chapbook and prints) for $475
We have only 5 copies of THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES available (customers who committed to purchasing the book but because of financial or other reasons decided to pass on the book). So, priority will be given to those who want the entire package (#4). Otherwise it will be first-ordered, first-served.
We will have to send the material in two separate packages (which will add to the postage and insurance). The framed illos were sent to us in a sturdy box and will ship separately from the book and chapbook. And, due to the possibility of loss or damage these offers are good for our US customers only.
