Self-publishing brings with it any number of hazards and peculiar conditions. One of them, as I've discovered, is how you can end up with an amazing array of slightly inconsistent product.

Back when I first launched Genji Press, I experimented with a couple of different book formatting options. I eventually settled on the closest thing to a trade paperback edition, both in size and paper quality -- but by that time I'd already ordered, and sold, a number of books in other sizes and configurations. Also, by that time, I'd ended up fixing a number of small problems with the texts themselves -- typos, dropped lines, switched phrases, etc.

To that end, I've got a few leftovers -- blems, if you will. These are older copies of my books which are remnants of that experimental period, in a variety of sizes and with a variety of defects. Right now all I have are copies of Summerworld, but others may turn up from time to time.

What I thought I'd do is pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes sell these "blems" as special collector's items -- but not at exorbitant prices. Instead, I'm selling them for a flat $10 (+$2 post) each -- along with a CD-ROM that includes the full and most recent text of the book in PDF format. So think of it as buying an e-text version of the book, with an accompanying paper copy!

Because quantities are limited, I can't guarantee which copy you'll receive from the above picture. It's first-come, first-serve.
