It’s a question we get asked now and then: “Where can I buy your books?”

Since our books are printed in both the U.S. and the U.K., you can walk into just about any major bookstore in the U.S. and the U.K. and order any of the books we publish. It will take a few days for the book to arrive, but not any longer than it would take to get a book from a major publisher.

But by far the easiest method is to order the book you want from an online bookseller. You don’t have to deal with clerks who don’t know what they are doing, you don’t have to travel to and from the bookstore, and you don’t have to wait as long for your book. Just place your order and wait for it to arrive.

In the U.S. you can order our books from Amazon or from Barnes & Noble.

In the U.K., there’s Amazon UK.

In Canada, there’s Amazon Canada.

In France, there’s Amazon France.

In Germany, there’s Amazon Germany.

In Japan, there’s Amazon Japan.

In India, there’s Flipkart.

In Australia, there’s Angus & Robertson and The Nile.

And if you’re anywhere else in the world, as well as any of the places already mentioned, there’s the Book Depository, which offers free shipping anywhere in the world, though their prices can sometimes be a little higher than elsewhere.

So basically you have no excuse. Go and buy Anomalist Books!

mtWriter Mac Tonnies died this week at the age of 34, supposedly of “natural causes,” though dying at such a young age in this society is anything but natural. He was found dead in his bed in his apartment in Kansas City, Missouri. Mac was a soon-to-be author of an Anomalist Book, his long awaited work entitled The Cryptoterrestrials. I first contacted Mac after reading his clear-headed, remarkably balanced, but still full-of-wonder website on Martian anomalies, The Cydonian Imperative. I found him to be an original thinker and a terrific writer. At the time, I was the editor of Paraview Pocket Books, published by Simon & Schuster, and offered Mac a contract to write a book on the subject which became After the Martian Apocalypse. I spoke to Mac several times after the book was published and he expressed a strong desire to leave Kansas City, which he loathed. He seemed to have trouble making ends meet and was exasperated by the job market there. He ended up working at Starbucks and most recently at a call-center, in both cases a terrible waste of a wonderful mind. I saw Mac as a writer with a brilliant future and did my best to encourage him. Unfortunately, there will be no more quirky blog posts, stark photographs, or trenchant observations from Mac Tonnies anymore. He had promised to deliver his manuscript to us at the beginning of November and I will do my best to get his final work published. Mac is now posthuman, no doubt wandering among the stars from which he came. And I, along with his many friends, have a terrible case of the blues.

Coming in 2009

December 4, 2008

Yes, yes, it’s coming, and here’s the cover to prove it. There has been a tremendous amount of interest in The Secrets of Dellschau: The Sonora Aero Club & the Airships of the 1800s, A True Story by Dennis Crenshaw in collaboration with Pete Navarro even before we officially announced that we were going to publish this book (thanks to Jim Moseley who spilled the beans early). We won’t have it out by the end of the year, as we had hoped, but it should be out early next year. 

The next issue of our journal, The Anomalist, Number 14, will be called Electricity of the Mind. It’s being guest edited by Ian Simmons and will be out in the first part of next year.

Also in production is the biggest book we have ever published (and probably ever will publish), Outbreak! The Encyclopedia of Extraordinary Social Behavior by Hilary Evans and Robert Bartholomew, a definitive, half-a-million-word opus that is guaranteed to startle, inform, and entertain all at once. Step aside Charles Mackay.

Also on tap is Astrology Off the Beaten Track by Dr. Suzel Fuzeau-Braesch. It’s our first astrology book and it contains what we believe to be groundbreaking studies on animals.

In the Spring of 2009 we will be issuing Darkness Walks: The Shadow People Among Us by Jason Offutt, as well as a reprint of Brad Steiger’s Our Shared World of the Supernatural, which we are re-titling Beyond Shadow World, the third volume in this series. 

And what’s a new year without a new Nick Redfern book? Coming is Sci-Fi Secrets: On the Edge of the Paranormal, the third volume in Nick’s “Secrets” series. 

That’s just the beginning, of course.  Oh, and Happy Holidays, everyone!

Happy Holidays

December 18, 2007

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our authors for their wonderful works and our readers for their support. Come visit us next year. We have quite a bit in store for you. A classic trilogy reprinted; a new one completed. A cryptozoological adventure. An extraordinary encyclopedia. And a who’s who the likes of which you have never seen before. And much, much more.

A couple of avid fans of Anomalist Books have asked: What are the best selling Anomalist Books titles? That changes from day to day and month to month, of course, so we’ll offer you a snapshot of top five for August of 2007:
1. Strange Company
2. Encounters at Indian Head
3. Heavenly Lights
4. Celestial Secrets
5. Worlds Before Our Own
(tie) The President’s Vampire
And for September, we can already tell that our newest release, Shadow World, will take over the number one slot, thanks in large part to Brad Steiger’s appearance on Coast to Coast.

The News Will Appear Here

April 21, 2007

We are starting a blog for news and reviews about Anomalist Books so that people coming in late to the site can catch up on what’s been going on. The blog will also allow us to post regularly as reviews come in or books appear, rather than the once a month update we have been providing to date on the website. We’ll begin by posting some of the old items we still have on hand. We hope you enjoy the show.
