And Other Stories works with writers and translators to handpick the best international books for its subscribers and all lovers of fine writing. Subscribe for 2, 4 or 6 titles per year (click here for subscription deadlines and anticipated delivery dates for forthcoming subscriber books).
And Other Stories subscriptions, step-by-step:
- Choose your subscription: How many books do you want per year? Do you want the subscription to recur annually, or just last for one year?
- Fill in the appropriate form below (the first is for recurring subscriptions, the second for one-off/gift subscriptions), and go through to the payment area on the Paypal site to complete your purchase. If you don’t want to use Paypal, get in touch at email@example.com.
- You’ll receive confirmation from Paypal immediately, and we will also get in touch to welcome you to And Other Stories, and check we have the correct details. If we haven’t contacted you within 1 week, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org – we may have the wrong email address for you! At this point you can choose a FREE ebook from our backlist so you can start reading right away. If you’re buying a gift, you BOTH get an ebook!
- It’ll be a few months before your receive your first book. We like to thank all subscribers by printing their names inside the books they have supported, and typesetting deadlines mean we need those names in good time. Plus, your subscription fee supports the production of that particular book – you are directly helping our editors, translators and designers! So, if you subscribe to six books in August 2016, you might get your first book in March 2017.
- We will email you shortly before sending out your books to check you’re still at the same address. However, please drop us a line at any time if you’re moving house!
- Your first edition copies of the books you have supported will arrive a month or two before publication date.
- If you’ve bought a recurring subscription, it will recur automatically one year from the date you subscribed – no need for you to lift a finger!
A few subscriber perks:
- free postage and packing in the UK, EU and USA and Canada (outside these areas, the subscription fee increases slightly to cover postal costs!)
- you will be warmly invited to contribute to our plans and choice of future books (see our reading group page)
- you’ll receive extra goodies sometimes (eg postcards designed by our authors)
Please Note – Subscriptions are for the books we’re yet to print!
We now publish 8-11 new titles a year – six of these with the support of subscribers. The timetable is here. In order to give subscribers variety, we tend only to make the first book by a particular author a subscriber-supported book. Their subsequent books, eg Pavlov’s The Matiushin Case & Requiem for a Soldier or Vladislavić’s The Restless Supermarket, 101 Detectives & The Folly, can then be bought from all good bookshops. We have introduced you to the author – you choose whether you wish to keep up the acquaintance.
Automatically Recurring Subscription Options:
6 books a year for £50 in UK/Europe/USA/Canada (approx $80 US)
4 books a year for £35 in UK/Europe/USA/Canada (approx $55 US)
2 books a year for £20 in UK/Europe/USA/Canada (approx $32 US)
