Regarding the Dreaded Returns & Refunds Issue

Every book is sold as-is. Anything listed will be in good-to-excellent condition when it’s sent. I check every single book that goes out and you won’t get a book that is not like-new or as “like-new” as a 10-20 year old book might be. In the case of the trade paperbacks from Alkemara Press, these are brand-new.

Our returns/refunds policies:

  1. No returns or refunds on personally-inscribed books.
  2. Check your order  the minute you open the package. Damage? Let us know ASAP. Email:
  3. Outside the U.S.? We’re unable to do refunds/returns at this time. We apologize.


With two specific exceptions, we will accept returns/refund requests on the listed price of the book(s) up to  30 days after a book’s arrival to you from the postal service in the U.S. only.

Just  email Doug the minute you know a mistake was made in the order and we’ll figure out how to proceed. Email: 

We take care in packaging, but sometimes bad things happen to good books in transit. If this is the case, email Doug and we’ll figure it out.

Doug wants you happy. He really does.

Thank you.
