26th Anniversary Sale

        December 1 marks Uncle Edgar's 26th anniversary, and we're celebrating with a huge sale. Come into Uncle Edgar's or Uncle Hugo's and save 10% off everything except gift certificates. A discount card will save you even more--you'll get both the 10% savings from the sale and the 10% savings from the discount card. Come in and save on new books, used books, calendars, jigsaw puzzles, audiobooks, music, magazines, model kits, etc. (Sale prices apply to in-store purchases, but not to mail orders.)
        The 25th Anniversary Sale lasts Friday, December 1st through Sunday, December 10th--giving you two weekends to take advantage of the sale.
        We will also be having our annual inventory reduction sale December 26-31, but that will feature deep discounts on things we really, really want to get rid of. It will not be a store-wide sale, like the 25th Anniversary Sale.

Holiday Gift Ideas

        Our single most popular gift option continues to be our gift certificate. We can issue one in any amount. It can be used at either or both stores. It can even be used for mail order, and it can be purchased by phone or fax (if you have Mastercard, Visa, or Discover Card), and we can mail it either to the purchaser or the recipient, or we can just enter the balance on a credit file here at the store, so there’s no risk of the gift certificate being lost.
        Calendars are another popular gift item, and by now we’ve seen most of the calenders we’ll receive this year. (All calendars are standard wall calendars unless otherwise noted.) This year we only received two of the Star Trek calendars, Star Trek ($12.99, original series) and Star Trek Ships of the Line ($12.99). We also have two Tolkien calendars, The Lord of the Rings ($14.95, art by Alan Lee) and The Lord of the Rings Diary ($14.99 hardcover, art by Alan Lee), two Harry Potters (wall or page-a-day, $13.99 each, both with art from the movies), two Wizard of Oz
(wall at $12.99 or page-a-day at $13.99, both with art from the movie), and three dragon calendars, Dragons by Ciruelo (16-month wall or page-a-day for $12.99) and Dragonology ($14.99). Other fantasy art calendars include The World of Michael Parkes ($12.99) and The Fantasy Art of Keith Parkinson ($12.99).
        Other wall calendars include Futurama ($12.99), Get Fuzzy ($13.99), The Simpsons ($12.99), The Simpsons Mini Calendar ($7.99), and Zits Family Organizer ($12.99).

Bushisms ($11.99, a different dumb thing said by the Pres each day; last year we received this title due to a warehouse mistake, and it turned out to be our best-selling calendar, so this year we actually ordered it), Get Fuzzy ($11.99), Medical Cartoon-a-Day ($11.99), Non Sequitur ($11.99), The Onion: Freedom in America ($12.95), The Onion: Homeland Insecurity ($12.95), Space: A Photo and Fact Anthology ($13.99, with photos from the Hubble, Voyager and Viking Missions, etc.), and The Trivial Simpsons ($12.99).

        Signed books can be divided into two categories: those that arrive from the publisher in special, limited, signed editions (i.e., expensive) and those that arrive from the publisher as normal editions that we get an author to sign (which we then sell at the same price as an un-signed copy). Uncle Hugo's carries a number of the special editions, including David Brin’s Earth ($125), Orson Scott Card's Memory of Earth ($200) and Shadow of the Giant ($200), William Gibson & Bruce Sterling's Difference Engine ($125), Neal Stephenson’s Quicksilver ($200), The Confusion ($200), and The System of the World ($200), Star Wars: Heir to the Empire by Timothy Zahn (1st of his trilogy, $125).

        [The list of signed trade paperbacks at Uncle Hugo’s and Uncle Edgar’s got squeezed out of the paper newsletter, but are included in the “Signed Books” listing on the website.]
        Uncle Hugo’s and Uncle Edgar’s also have a large selection of signed mass market paperback.
        (Note to collectors: This list of signed books is updated once a year for our December Newsletter. Our signed books are also listed on Abebooks.com, and that listing is sometime updated as often as 3 or 4 times per week, depending on how quickly authors are coming through the store and how quickly signed books are leaving the store. If you go to Abebooks.com , click Bookstores on the top banner, and then find Uncle Hugo’s/Uncle Edgar’s, you can browse all our signed books (over 1500 listings, including mass market paperbacks) or all of our books that we’ve entered so far (about 18,000 books, mostly used). That listing has much more information, but is also much more time-consuming to use, and has the sf and mystery titles mixed together.)
