We are particularly fond of small press books, especially limited collector editions. We have a number of books from Subterranean Press, PS Publishing, Arkham House, Ash Tree Press, Tartarus, Centipede Press, Cemetery Dance, Stark House, Gryphon Editions, and a few older books from Limited Editions Club.
I began selling books online because I had accumulated a large number of high technology type books--hence our original name, MadScience Enterprises. I quickly found that techy books, though they fetched high prices, had a very limited market. So I branched out into areas that interested me personally, and into books that were highly collectible. Our store now has a high concentration of vintage science fiction and fantasy novels including some Jules Verne novels from the 19th century. We also have an extensive list of International Collectors Library books, including many that are hard to find. We have achieved a consistently high rating at Alibris. We ship immediately and we have a policy of accepting all returns.
