On international orders…

Unfortunately we (UA & 9BB) have had issues with Amazon.com, and are trying to resolve them, but they are a giant, and we’re trying to sell books that few people want and many would rather see just disappear.

With Lucifer’s Lexicon we used our printer as a distributor, but it seems Amazon is punishing them for not being owned by Amazon, and listed on the product page that our book could take 1-2 months to get even though it would be sent out within 24 hours in most cases. They currently stock copies, but it took months for that to happen.

Their International websites showed spotty availability, but it was available.

With The Myth of Natural Rights the publishers are supplying Amazon with copies themselves, which added weeks of time before they placed an order and then got it in stock.

Unfortunately that means that the international websites aren’t carrying copies of our book, and I’m not sure of the logistics involved in getting them copies and having them sell them on our behalf.

Shipping from the US anywhere else is becoming cost-prohibitive and more and more of a hassle. One ounce can often change the cost of postage up or down more than the price of the book.

One solution is finding a reliable European bookseller that we can list as the place to get them, but we have no contact like that. Please reach out if that is you.

Nine-Banded Books and Underworld Amusements are very small publishers and we are doing what we can to make these books available to all who are interested, but sometimes that will be challenging. With Amazon folding to pressures of thought-police, and Western governments increasingly doing the same, and the puritanical force of Westerners themselves rising up against Free thought and speech, our projects will be increasingly in the crosshairs, and we’ll have less and less resources.

For the time, we’ll maximize our use of the tail-end of American free-speech, and please contact us with any questions.

If you are outside of the US, and would like to order a copy of Lucifer’s Lexicon, please drop Nine-Banded Books a message.

Hello world!

This website will primarily serve to provide detail about The Portable L.A. Rollins series of books being co-published by Nine-Banded Books and Underworld Amusements.

In addition it will provide some biographical detail and history of Rollins and his work, via this blog.

We have begun the transfer of posts from Rollins’ old blogspot blog to here. As time allows, we will populate this website with his musings from the short span of December 2008 until February 2009.

We are, however, very interested in obtaining more of his work, and any letters he’s sent and any reminiscences people have of him. We’d appreciate donations of original material, but scans are also quite welcome. Please get in touch.
