LOOKING FOR SF and FANTASY COLLECTIBLES?
You have come to the right place!!
First of all, I am a collector, and these pages are my extras. The pages are arranged like a bookstore where you browse, but there is a search engine available at the left. If you follow the links on this page, you will eventually find all 45,000 books I have to sell or trade. They are scattered over dozens or more pages to load better, so be persistent in looking until you find what you need.

WHO ARE WE?
Just collectors like yourself.
Collecting Science Fiction books and magazines has been my hobby for over 40 years. My main interest is in magazines known as 'Pulp' magazines, published between 1920 through about 1955, but I collect Science Fiction paperbacks and hardcover books as well. As I unfortunately read only English, my interest is confined to those published in the U.S., Canada, and Britain. If you have any of these to sell or trade, I am always in the market to purchase collections, large and small. For more information, check the following notes

HOW CAN WE BE REACHED?
Snailmail for orders
I can best be contacted by snailmail at:

Fantastic Collectibles
484 E Carmel Dr #146
Carmel, Indiana 46032 USA


e-mail for questions and such
email: may be used, but we are not set up for ordering this way. All orders are still by snail mail.
Read here to see why we are such old fashioned neanderthals in this Internet age.

POSTAGE?
We have greatly simplified postage rates
Postage within the United States is $4.00 for any number of books, pulps and most other things. Shipping is FREE for orders over $50. For complete postage requirements including foreign orders, please check our postage rates

ORDER FORM?
How Quaint!
Yes, we still use a paper order form. While people in the Internet age will consider a paper order form as an annoyance, it is a necessity if you use snailmail to order. So, here is our order form that you can print out. Don't have a printer? Just do your best with a ordinary sheet of paper.

DO WE BUY COLLECTIONS?
Always!
We have been buying collections for over 50 years and hope to continue for the forseeable future. We buy primarily to improve our personal collection, but we will consider any collection that has some desirable items. If we are interested in your collection, we will make an offer for the entire collection.
    What we need in Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, Hero, etc:
  • Pulp Magazines 1880 through 1960
  • Digest magazines up to 1965
  • Paperback Books
  • Hardcover Books
  • Artwork relating to magazine or book covers
    What we do not need:
  • Pornography
  • Bookclub or ex-library hardcovers
  • Comic Books, other than those with 10 cent cover prices
e-mail if you have items for sale

SPECIAL NOTE #1
How long have we been doing this?
I have been offering Science Fiction (or Pulp Fiction Magazines as some insist on calling them) and Fantasy material on the Internet since 1996, and through catalogs since 1964. Since I starting keeping records on my computer in 1983, I have served over 6000 customers totaling over 45,000 orders. Order with confidence but please be patient as orders seem to come in clumps, and there is just my wife and myself to handle everything. We answer all inquiries that include a SASE.

SPECIAL NOTE #2
Letters and emails
We get letters and emails on a regular basis from our loyal customers. I will gladly publish those of general interest. Take a look at our LETTERS and emails and send me your comments.
