Sylvia Engdahl novel back in print, other news

By Sylvia Engdahl

This is to announce that my Young Adult novel This Star Shall Abide (known in the UK as Heritage of the Star) is now back in print, separate from its inclusion in the one-volume edition of the Children of the Star trilogy. It is of interest to younger readers (age 12 up) than the rest of the trilogy. It has been the most popular of my novels apart from Enchantress from the Stars. I’ve reissued it to be discovered by a new generation. There are no plans to issue print editions of the others, but all three will remain available as ebooks.

The book is available only at Amazon.com and from me. The retail price is $10.95 but I’m selling signed copies at a 20% discount, i.e. for $8.75, with free Media Mail shipping (please add $2 for Priority Mail). Discounted international shipping is $8 to Canada and $10 to other countries. There’s an order form for PayPal at www.adstellaebooks.com. I am selling to schools and libraries at a 50% discount plus shipping cost; I accept purchase orders, which can be faxed to 866-302-3827.

Also, I have signed copies of my other YA novels available at sale prices: Enchantress from the Stars, hardcover $15; The Far Side of Evil, hardcover $10, paperback $4; and Journey Between Worlds, hardcover $10, paperback $4. The order form for these is at sylviaengdahl.com/purchase.htm. You can also buy Children of the Star either there or at Amazon for its regular price of $20, while the copies last—they are now almost gone.

In other news, this year I am giving a free set of my novels for grown-ups, Stewards of the Flame and Promise of the Flame, each month to a public library randomly drawn from among entries — readers, please tell your librarian! I’m hoping this will draw traffic to my Ad Stellae Books site. The instructions for entering the drawing are on the Review Quotes page there.

And of course, you can still order signed copies of Stewards of the Flame and Promise of the Flame for $14 each, or both for $25. If you’ve already read one or both, I’d love to see your comments.
