New Falcon puts 'Coincidance' on sale

I mentioned in a recent post that I'd like to host an online discussion of Robert Anton Wilson's Coincidance, probably in mid-September. (Sometime soon, we ought to have a discussion of what kind of reading schedule to follow, how to handle those little chapters, etc.)

Well, by coincidence, or "coincidance," New Falcon Press has announced a summer sale of Coincidance, cutting the price to $10.53. The list price is $22.95. The new $10.53 sale price is cheaper than the $15.62 price that's listen on Amazon.

A complete price comparison, however, has to include shipping and handling. Amazon's shipping price is $3.99, bringing to the total up to $19.61. New Falcon charges $8.50 for shipping one paperback book, bringing the total price to $18.83. Good, but not the biggest sale of the year.

Could this be the opening salvo in a vicious online price war over Robert Anton Wilson's books? We can only hope!

REMINDER: First Church on the Moon is free today as a Amazon Kindle. It may only be free for one week, so grab it now.

As I commented before, I bought a used copy on Amazon for under $12 including shipping--in brand new condition... I'm sure there are others to be had for a similar price.

Yes, I recently got a copy in very god condition for under $10. This was after the e-book fiasco that I finally just got reimbursed for.

I love Coincidance, and it's often considered his non-fiction book about Joyce, esp. FW, but as I re-read it, each time Wilhelm Reich and Ezra Pound show their influence almost as strong as the overt Joyce stuff. Only WR and EzP linger around in back, quietly.

I noticed that one of the customer reviews for Coincidance is by Eric Wagner, so I followed the link to his other reviews and recommendations out of curiosity as to what else would interest a leading RAW-head. Others here might find the trip interesting too.
