The fourth book in the trilogy (!) is expected to go to the printers in the new year. Horizon Press has apparently ceased trading and publication has been taken over by PDMHS.

List price will be £25 but there is currently a subscription offer of £23.99 for collection, higher for postage. For details contact the Mining Museum.

I would strongly advise contacting the Mining Museum before paying anything to WH Smiths - this may be a deal previously agreed with Horizon, but not binding on PDMHS.

Also, the subscriber's list is still open if anyone is interested - again, contact the museum.

The book is now available, for collection by subscribers, or for purchase. Due to Landmark having ceased trading, it has been published by PDMHS and is only available from the Mining Museum at Matlock Bath.

If you are a subscriber, it would save the Society some money if you collected rather than having it posted.

Not quite true I will have copies for sale and certainly will take them to the NAHMO conference there were only a small number printed so if you want to collect one from me please let me know in order to reserve

A Trilogy is 3 parts and this is four albeit published by others. I still have copies of the other volumes for sale too but not many.

There is certainly no widespread Amazon / Smith massive discount due to the short run leading to high printing costs

Just for clarification, it was originally intended for the set to be a trilogy but it overspilled, and needed a fourth volume to fit everything in (does that make it a quadrilogy? Big Grin ).

Either ways, I think it will only be available through the museum, a few local outlets, and specialist sellers like Mike so treat any of the big sellers apparently offering it at a knock-down price with caution, as they may be assuming PDMHS will let them have it at cost....

The comment was tongue in cheek, truth is Landmark got themselves into trouble providing bigger discounts to Amazon et al and then needing to clear stock quickly remaindered the books. A pime example was Collieries of South Wales vol1 I sold a significant number of copies (40+) , when Volume 2 came out they played sill games and net effect I sold and stocked only 5 copies. I did have a couple off them at the end but the moral here is sell cheap and eventualy people like me simply stop selling and stocking and as a result they didn't make margins.

I fail to understand publishers logic yes the big boys will turn over vast numbers of books but if you make bog all on them whats the point of being in business. Luckily there are lots of independantly produced books that I stock that not undermined by this suicidal practice.

Sermon for the day hover hope all enjoy reading the final part of 3+ 1 Smartass

Cheers
Mike
