Some Like Them Hard

August 29, 2013

Just as many audiophiles still prefer vinyl records to digital downloads for their music, some book buyers prefer hardback books to trade paperbacks or (horrors!) ebooks. In an effort to please this discriminating audience, we are making a selection of titles from the Anomalist Books catalog available in hardback editions. Those who have held these laminate hardbacks (no dust jacket) in their hands agree that the books are rock solid and beautiful. But please note: these hardback editions will only be available for a limited time.

Now Available on Kobo

October 12, 2012

You know already that many of our print books are also available as ebooks. You can get them for Amazon’s Kindle, for Barnes & Noble’s Nook, and in Apple’s iBookstore. Now our books are also available on Kobo for their eReaders, which use electronic ink screens. Kobo is big in Canada, where they are based, but they’re also making big inroads internationally. If the name “Kobo” has you puzzled, it’s an anagram of the word “book.” Get you Anomalist Books for Kobo here!

Most Anomalist Books are now available through the Expresso Book Machine. What does that mean? That means you can walk in to more than half a dozen bookstores in the United States (and many others worldwide), order the book you want, and have it printed in front of you faster than you can make a cup of coffee. Yes, that fast! Expresso Book Machines are now installed in the following bookstores:

Cambridge, MA, 02138

University of Washington Book Store

Now on Facebook

Every now and then someone asks: “How can I keep track of your new titles and other news about Anomalist Books?” There are several answers to that question. The old-fashioned way is to come to the website, of course, and read the “News.” Or you can put the News in your RSS feed by plugging in this url: But now, thanks to Chris Savia, the weekend news editor of The Anomalist, there is a third way: you can join Anomalist Books on Facebook. Who knows, one day we might even tweet.

A Fortean Obituary

August 18, 2011

We’ve been putting this off, and the longer we’ve put it off, the longer the list has grown. It began on July 8, 2011, with the death of Bill Corliss. We’ve known Bill for 40 years and have every one of his remarkable Sourcebook Project volumes on our shelves. His collection of scientific anomalies, which represents just a small fraction of what science doesn’t know, has served as an inspiration to us. One day his work will get the recognition it deserves.  Then on July 27, 2011, Hilary Evans passed away.  We not only co-authored a book with Hilary some years ago, but we are proud to have been the publisher of his last two books:  Outbreak! Encyclopedia of Extraordinary Social Behavior (with Robert Bartholomew) and SLIders: The Enigma of Streetlight Interference (SLI). Hilary’s mind was as sharp as a tack all the way to the end; in fact, he had another book all fleshed out in his mind, a book which unfortunately now we’ll never get to see. Then on August 12, 2011, Bob Girard passed away in Florida. Bob was the owner of a mail order book company called Arcturus Books, and he would badger his clientele into enlightenment by insisting they purchase and read the books he offered on UFOs, cryptozoology, the paranormal, and ancient history. We bought many books from Bob over the years, and he was the primary mail-order seller of Anomalist Books since 2005, when we opened for business. We will miss these three friends, these three great fortean men. Update: We did not want to add to this dark list, but on August 21, our friend Budd Hopkins, whom we have known for more than 30 years, passed away. We are glad to have worked with him and publsihed his brilliant autobiography just two years ago: Art, Life and UFOs: A Memoir.

ablogoThough we are still in a New York frame of mind, you should be aware that Anomalist Books has a new address for editorial matters:

Anomalist Books
PO Box 6807
Charlottesville, VA 22906

Our business address remains the same, however.

Hello, Australia!
