9/21 UPDATE: Welcome to readers coming here from Neil Gaiman’s blog. We’re going back to striking through books that aren’t available so there’s no confusion as to what you can and cannot buy. We’re having a ton of orders coming in and will be processing them throughout the day. I will also be adding a few more books to the lists. (And see my blog entry.) Here’s where we stand as of right now, approximately:

602 BOOKS SOLD (early adoption and public sale)

Also, check out my latest blog entry for stuff just added to the lists now, 9/21, 11am EST

Well, folks, the book sale is officially live and running. See below for the individual links. You’ll soon find we have a wide range of material, both genre and mainstream, along with lots of unusual and bizarre stuff.

Anyone who orders books from us will get various small freebies included from a stack of postcards, bookmarks, figurines, comic books, and other cool stuff. (None of which will affect your shipping cost.)


(1) No orders under $10.
(2) Send us an email (to vanderworld at with a cc to buzzcity at with the list of books you want to order, to make sure they are still available. (We operate on a first-come, first-served basis.)

SHIPPING AND OTHER INSTRUCTIONS BELOW THE CUT OR AT THE HOEGBOTTON SITE–that’s also the direct link if you want to just scroll down through all of the books.

Thanks! We want all of these books to go to good homes!

Some rare items as well as some new ones, from Moore to French and Mignola, and everything in between.

As with all of these categories, a mix of genre and mainstream titles.

Mass market editions, mostly from the splendiferous 1970s.

Noir to gentler mysteries, in hc, tp, and mm editions. From Denis Johnson to Laura Lipmann.

A great selection, from all over the world

More made-up goodness, with a few surprises

Pick up a couple of year’s bests or a quirky volume on sex and chocolate, depending on your wont.

Mostly new or almost new, contemporary titles.

You can’t get more diverse than a section that include Gary K. Wolfe’s Soundings and book about a traveling cat and a book about the Spanish Civil War…

Want to learn about boxing, the Green Zone, or the 1988 elections? Or any of a hundred other subjects? Then check out this list…

This ain’t gonna make us any money, but it’s an interesting selection of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction.
