Spring Has Sprung


And so have we. We start this month's newsletter on a note of defiance. We've been having a lot of trouble with Facebook and we've finally had enough. Long story, short: Facebook keeps "disappearing" our FB catalog listings. For a more detailed statement you can read our recent post Banned By Facebook.

However, YOU get the benefit of FB's ridiculous nonsense with this private newsletter-only sale. You can go to this Banned By Facebook page and get these ebooks for 10% off all year long. Just enter the coupon code BannedByFacebook at the checkout to get the discount. And if we have more problems with Facebook we'll add those books to the list also.

In other news, we're very pleased with the release of The Continental Op -1925-26 by Dashiell Hammett. We restored the stories Mike or Alec or Rufus and Corkscrew back to their original versions. You might be interested in this third book in the series of Hammett's unnamed private detective. We sure have been.
