Where can I buy your books?

Right here! If you want the lowest price and would also like to support an independent publisher, why not download the PDF e-book edition of the title? Look for the “Download Now” button at the top of each book’s page.

As far as paperbacks and hardcovers are concerned, Amazon does carry Obolus Press books, but they are often out of stock or overpriced… To avoid this frustration, try shopping at Aerio (US and Canada), Blackwell’s (UK), and the Book Depository (rest of the world).


When and how will I receive the PDF?

If you used a verified PayPal account to purchase the book, you should be able to download the file immediately. You will also receive an email with download instructions (check your spam folder).

If you used your credit card you may have to wait for the transaction to clear, after which which you will receive a download link by email.


Something is wrong with my order.  Whom should I contact?

Just send a message to orders@oboluspress.com or telephone 1-289-796-0523 between 9am and 5pm, Eastern Standard Time and we’ll sort it out. All shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well!


I purchased the PDF on a whim. Now I don’t want it. What should I do?

The publisher cannot accept returns. You cannot return a digital file. You can, however, read a preview of each book — so please try before you buy. 


I would like a review or desk copy. 

Sorry, no free copies are available. You could ask your library to buy one, though — give them the book’s ISBN and mention that it is available from the Alibris for Libraries program.


I operate a bookstore or museum shop and would like to place a wholesale order. How should I proceed?

Obolus Press titles are distributed by Ingram in North America and Gardners in the United Kingdom, but booksellers will obtain better terms by dealing with the publisher directly:

Books are available to the trade in Australia, Canada, Great Britain, and the United States at a 40% discount on a minimum order of 20 units (these need not be all of the same title). This discount increases to 50% on orders of more than 50 units (again, these need not be all the same book).

All orders are pre-paid, and non-returnable. The shipping is free.

Retailers in other countries are welcome to e-mail orders@oboluspress.com for a quote. Payments may be made by PayPal, credit card, or bank transfer (via IBAN) in most currencies.
