Paul Hollis | 30 comments Does anyone knowif the books from the Science Fiction/Fantasy Book Club are the same size as from the publisher or are they smaller sized hardbacks?


message 2: by Scott (new)

Scott Textual books (novels, collections) are usually smaller. Art books may be the same size as the mass market edition.

Paul Hollis | 30 comments ah ok thanks for the info!


message 4: by Candiss (new)

Candiss (tantara) Paul, the novels I've gotten from them have all been small. I have small hands (and full bookshelves!) so I really like the compact hardbacks.

The copy of The Steampunk Bible: An Illustrated Guide to the World of Imaginary Airships, Corsets and Goggles, Mad Scientists, and Strange Literature I bought from them is full-size, which goes along with what Scott said about art books.

Kevin Xu (kxu65) | 490 comments The books from SFBC are smaller and cheaper, but they do have nice exclusive omnibus copies of certain series.


message 8: by Traci (new)

Traci I usually use them for the reason Kevin said, to buy omnibus copies. Also they have hard covers of books only sold as paperbacks in the stores.


message 9: by Scott (new)

Scott I'll buy them if they have better cover art, but otherwise I try to get the mass market editions.
