Big! Book! Sale!

You see the piles of books in that photo? That’s just a small selection of the tottering heaps of my books I have in the house.ย They make for good insulation, I’m sure, but I wouldn’t mind getting rid of a few, ideally making some money to buy Officeboy Xmas presents in the process.

Here’s where you come in:ย Buy my books! (They make great gifts. Even if just for yourself.)

You can get signed and/or inscribed copies for cover price (I’ll round up to destroy any stray pennies), plus $4 shipping per book for mass market paperbacks and $6 each for trade paperbacks/hardcovers.

Shipping costs for the US are included in the listed price. For shipping outside the US, add an extra $6 to the listed price.

Write to timpratt at gmail dot com or post in the comments here saying what you want and telling me if you want them signed and/or personalized. I’ll do the math and tell you what you owe me and where to send the PayPal money. First-come, first-served, which is why you should comment or e-mail instead of just sending money — I’d hate for you to pay for something that sold out. (First-time comments are moderated here, so don’t worry if your comment doesn’t show up immediately.)

I’ll run the sale for one week, from Monday October 29th until Sunday November 4.

Here’s what’s available. First editions, unless otherwise noted.

Marla Mason series:

Mass-market paperback of Blood Engines, $11 (19 copies available)

Mass-market paperback of Dead Reign, $11 (9 copies)

Mass-market paperback of Spell Games, $11 (10 copies)

Trade Paperback of Broken Mirrors, $20 (2 copies)

I also have eight or ten copies each of rare Marla Mason story chapbooks Shark’s Teeth and Snake & Mongoose, which I’ll sell for $8 each (shipping included).

Standalone novels:

Trade paperback of The Strange Adventures of Rangergirl, $18 (11 copies)

Trade Paperback of The Nex, $14 Sold out!

    You can buy The Nex at (that’s the edition I was selling):

    The Merry Blacksmith Press is planning to do a a new trade paperback edition of The Nex, which may be available by the end of the year (or soon after), if you want to wait for that one. It should be available through all the usual online booksellers, some bookstores, science fiction conventions, etc. I’ll post about it when it’s available.

    Oh yay! You’re not all sold out! I have electricty again and would LOVE an inscribed copy of Sympathy For The Devil…I can’t put my nook copy on the shelf! I almost listed that I wanted a copy of Little Gods, but that should be coming soon from the Antiquities & Tangibles kickstarter…so instead, I’ll take an inscribed copy, please, of The Constantine Affliction. Will that be signed by T. Aaron Payton or Tim Pratt? I will wait to find out! woohoo!!!

  18. Tim Pratt Tim Pratt

    Thanks, Dani (and yay for restored electricity!). Send $55 to and I’ll send out the anthology and The Constantine Affliction (which I’ve been signing “T. Aaron Payton (AKA Tim Pratt)”.

  19. I read all ten installments dnuirg a recent trip to FL. I couldn’t put down my Kindle! I learned a lot too about the need to prepare. I hope Decay will also help satisfy the curiosity of what happened with Arturo, Jimmy, David and the family I liked the back and forth between time periods. Could you tie off old to new so we know what happened to our friends? Kind thanks, and well done!


    What about an in person book singing, is it possible that you’ll be touring any time soon?

  21. Tim Pratt Tim Pratt

    I don’t have any signings planned in the near future, and I’m not a big enough author to tour, really — I do events in the Bay Area and if I happen to be at conventions, but otherwise, not much. Since my next two books are a roleplaying game novel and a novella published in Britain, I’m not sure when I’ll be doing another signing.
