Scenting the Dark special offer

Bwahahahaha!

On ebay right now you can buy a copy of Scenting the Dark and other  Stories for a mere $102.57.

One hundred and two dollars and fifty-seven cents!

Or… you could buy a brand new copy from the publisher for $25.

I just– what possible rationale is there for the ebay price? I mean. I’m just baffled.

So to celebrate my confusion and amusement, for the next month I’m going to offer you a special deal.

If you buy a copy of Scenting the Dark and Other Stories from Subterranean Press, I will send you a wee chapbook of my Hugo nominated story “Evil Robot Monkey.” Signed and illustrated by the author.

Between now and June 11 send me a copy of your receipt from Subterranean, and your mailing address, and I’ll pop the chapbook in the mail to you.

Edited to add: In the comments below, Julia has come up with a fun twist.  If you already have a copy of the collection, post a photo and send me your address. I’ll send you the chapbook.

Did you know you can support Mary Robinette on Patreon!

    Is this only for copies bought in the next month, or could I send you my receipt from ordering it last year? 🙂

    Cool offer! Thanks!

    I second Erik. I preordered my signed copy. I don’t think I have the receipt anymore but I can certainly take a photo of me and the inside of the book (since I already have one of me geeking out with it closed) to prove I bought it…

    I just got the Internal Server error too. I am bummed. The error happened after I submitted my credit card information. Gee, I hope someone out there in the ethers hasn’t taken over this site for illicit purposes.

      But now I have an email from SP thanking me for my order. A curious system to be sure.
