    ORION FICTION Publishing 4 Malerman Books

    So for all the Malerman fans out there (me) Josh has signed a deal with Orion Publishing in the UK to publish 4 books. The details are here:
    https://www.thebookseller.com/news/o...alerman-970586

    My question to anyone else in this Forum--how do you buy books from the UK? Just through Amazon? I've purchased from PS, SST, and the Folio Society, but those are small presses and I'm not sure how trade editions from bigger publishers work.

    I would assume there would be a US release too. Unless you really want the UK edition.

    These are all UK editions. Del Rey is publishing INSPECTION in 5 days and that's the US trade. Orion will be publishing the 4 UK trade editions (one of which is INSPECTION) this year.

    I have purchased directly from Gollancz but that is not the publisher in question. You may check and see if they will sell directly to a US customer.

    What Martin said. I know some publishers don't ship to the states. It can be frustrating. So just ask.

    Thanks guys! I reached out to Orion first and didn't hear back. So I posted here. Looks like I'll have to order through Amazon? Thought it would be neat to get a UK collection going for an author and make it something I pursue. Maybe not though.

    This company ships UK books free to the U.S. (and many other countries): https://www.bookdepository.com/

    I bought a book from them about a year ago and had no problems

    Almost all of my UK books are purchased from Book Depository. Free shipping worldwide. And while they don’t pack things very well, I’ve never had any condition problems yet. Just read the edition details to verify which version you are ordering.

    Thanks Jason and jsweet! This probably my way forward.

    Yep, Book Depository was going to be my suggestion as well. There's also Amazon.uk, but for whatever reason I tend to default to Book Depository.

    Beware of Amazon UK. I ordered several copies of Sleeping Beauties through them when it was released and books arrived all banged up to hell and back. There was no packing material at all in the box.

    Wow. That's crazy! Amazon is built for high volume not high quality.

    I'm iffy on beginning down this frightening path (collecting UK trade editions). But I'll see what happens when these books are released.

    Go for it! I love UK editions and have many of King's and probably all of Hill's. I will have C.J. Tudor's UK editions as well. Or maybe I should say I'll have her US editions since she's a UK based author.

    The one true and tried way is to find a UK collector contact to pick these up for you and ship them. As a fellow collector, they'll get you the best copies and package them well. If you decide to go with BD, be sure to order quickly so you'll get 1st printings.

    Thanks for the guidance. I'm also looking forward to getting those Tudor US editions. Chalk Man should be shipping soon!

    Check to see if Goldsboro and/or Anderida will be selling copies. There's no discount off of MSRP and shipping can hurt, but you will absolutely get the book in pristine condition and that's always been worth the extra costs to me.

    BD is definitely the way to go. For a UK. specialty book dealer I suggest Jeff N Joys. Very good and efficient. On Amazon: Even if you pre order early, I have had books arriving in 2nd editions or later (J. Hill, Dr Who Meets Scratchman). On those occasions I just bought a first at B & N and returned my later edition the next day that I had received from amazon.

    Yes! I'm getting her Sub Press S/Ls via Camelot.

    I forgot about Goldsboro. I have used them in the past and had good luck.

    Love Goldsboro...funny enough, I just sent them a query email this morning to see if they're going to be carrying a particular title. Not sure if they carry mass-market paperbacks (which I *think* is Orion's format...?), but they're great for pristine (and often signed) 1st ed. UK HCs of genre fiction. Waterstones is another one worth checking if BD doesn't work.

    I bought Sarah Pinborough's newest via Amazon UK. It was out there way before here. I had no issues. I did have to create a new acct as they don't really keep all these different Amazon's together apparently. I'm pretty sure I've ordered via Amazon Germany at some point too but that was probably music.
