Sci-Fi Subscription Info

What is our 'Sci-Fi Subscription’?

Our Sci-Fi Subscription service runs similar to our Fantasy Subscription but is bi-monthly rather than monthly. We produce a special edition of a Sci-Fi title every other month.

This mainly focuses on backlist titles but will also features the occasional new release, with a mix of series and stand-alone titles. We aim to keep the majority of any series that we choose no bigger than a trilogy. This helps us to keep the titles fresh and allows us to bring about something new as often as possible.

We produce one special edition title every other month until any set is complete and then the next selection begins the following month.

Our Sci-Fi Subscription costs £27 + postage and packaging per month

    Science Fiction subscribers will receive 48 hour pre-sale access to any sci-fi special editions sold outside of the subscription. Pre-sale not only gives early access, but often offers a discounted rate for the editions.

    Fantasy subscribers will in turn receive 24 hour early access to the same special editions.

    General Questions

    How often does the sci-fi subscription bill?

    Our sci-fi subscription bills on the 1st of every other month!

    When do the books ship out?

    Each subscription payment correlates to next month's delivery. For example, a March payment will ship out in April etc.

    Do subscribers get access to Private Sales?

    Private Sales are accessible by staff members only. Having an active subscription does not grant access to these titles.

    Will subscription sets ever be available for general sale?

    We often have leftover sets of each series. These typically go on sale several months after the series has been completed, at a set date and time.

    If I'm subscribed to both your subscriptions, can they ship out together?

    Sadly this is not something we can offer at this point in time due to logistical reasons.

    The two subscriptions will ship out at a different times within the specified months.

    If I'm subscribed to both your subscriptions, do I get a discount at all?

    Similarly, we cannot offer a discounted rate for anyone who has both subscriptions.

    Waitlist Questions

    How often are new invites sent out?

    Invite periods will take place between series/sets.

    Please be aware that we only send out new invites to fill in spaces that have emptied out during the most recently finished series.

    Can I check my spot on the waitlist?

    Yes! If you drop our customer service team an email, they can check your position on the waitlist.

    We recommend checking your position every 3+ months.

    Address Changes

    How can I update my shipping address?

    You will need to drop us an email.

    Please be aware that customers cannot edit their addresses on past orders themselves. Changing the default address in your customer account will not update your subscription address.

    Is there a deadline for changing addresses?

    We recommend emailing in address changes as soon as possible. The customer service team will advise you accordingly.

    If an address change request comes in too close to a dispatch date, we might not be able to amend the address.

    Can I change my address for every series? If I want to gift or sell my set...

    Unfortunately no. Under our new policy changes, one cannot change their shipping address for gifting or reselling purposes.

    Skipping & Cancelling

    Can I skip an invite?

    You may skip up two invites! If you however skip a third invite, your entry will be removed from the waitlist and you'll need to rejoin it again.

    To skip an invite, drop us an email!

    How many series/books can I skip each year as a subscriber?

    Each subscriber is allowed to skip one series per year - which is usually 3 books.

    To skip a series, please drop our customer service team an email.

    Skips reset every calendar year and do not carry over if unused.

    When can I cancel my subscription?

    We recommend cancelling in-between series. If you wish to cancel during a series, this can be a bit more complicated.

    If in doubt, drop us an email!

    I've cancelled my sub, but would like to resubscribe. Is this possible?

    If you've changed your mind within 2 weeks of cancelling, we might be able to reverse the cancellation.

    We unfortunately cannot restart any subscriptions if a few months have passed since.
