Time to compete with Amazon and all of the other sites that offer free shipping within the USA. But, as our name says, TANSTAAFL – There Ain’t No Such Thing As A Free Lunch. In this case for you this lunch is mostly free.

Mostly. However we have been keeping our prices low despite the increasing cost of getting books printed which have increased by about a dollar a book. This means I will have to increase our print book costs to cover the print cost increase, both in our online store and at conventions.

Well, we here at TANSTAAFL Press endeavor to be transparent. When we mess up, we say so up front, like the travelling error in Toy Wars, or for using REND instead of RENDER in the same book. Well, we’ve done it again. As usual, the Ooopsie Award goes to author Thomas Gondolfi. He also gets the No-Prize […]
