Buying Books

Why | Buy Books | Merchandise | Donations | Sponsorship

Emerald City specialises in reviewing top quality science fiction and fantasy books. Some of these can be difficult to come by, especially if they are from small publishers, or are only published in the author's home country. However, there are a lot of potential options.

For many years we happily sold books through Amazon.com. However, Amazon's business practices have recently become very eccentric and we have decided to sell through The Book Depository instead. This is a British-based company which will ship to most countries in the world.

Emerald City does receive commission for books that you buy through this web site. It doesn't affect the price that you pay, but it does give us a small income and helps keep the site free.

The Book Depository

When buying from The Book Despository, please bear in mind that the Emerald City review will probably have been created when the book was new, and only available in hardcover. You may want to check to see if a cheaper paperback version is now available.

If you can't afford to buy newly released books now, you can try your local library. You won't get to keep the book, but you will get to read the latest releases in hardcover as soon as they are reviewed. If the library doesn't have the book, pester them to get it. Authors don't get as much money from books in libraries as from direct sales, but it all helps.
