Press "Enter" to skip to content

The sale is on at Paladin Press

Just got home from a day away. I learned that the Paladin Press close-out sale started last night. Fifty-five percent off on everything. They’re apparently going gangbusters.

For those interested in my books, last I heard they had 53 copies of The Freedom Outlaws Handbook and 25 of The Bad Attitude Guide to Good Citizenship. I decided not to use my author’s prerogative to buy any of those copies. I have zero of either book. So if you want the originals, get ’em while you can from Paladin.

At some point, I’ll likely be republishing TFOH with the help of my publisher friend, but I don’t know whether I’ll do a new edition of Bad Attitude.

I will receive royalties on the sales of my books, but otherwise I get no perks for sending you to Paladin to buy them or any other titles.



Again, NFI on my part, but if you’re interested in knifemaking, I heartily recommend this terrific DVD. It’s still not cheap, but it’s clear, creative, and a great beginner’s guide.

For retreating on a budget, I also like the book The Dirt Cheap Survival Retreat, which is selling now for a phenomenal $3.40 per copy.

If you want to suggest other Paladin books, please feel free to mention them in comments.

    Any idea WHY they are going out of business? Just curious.

    Yes, reinkefj. It’s sad. The co-founder/owner Peder Lund died suddenly in June while on vacation.

    With small-press publishing becoming more and more difficult thanks to all the self-publishing options out there now, and with Paladin already having had a 47 year run, the people remaining decided it was time to close the doors.

    I stopped at $150 worth of books from Paladin. Such a shame they’re going out of business; hopefully someone else takes the idea and makes a new business model out of these kinds of obscure titles. Perhaps on-demand publishing to reduce the need for a physical warehouse?

    It’s the same sad feeling I had when Loompanics closed its doors in 2006, and I was very happy I saved their last few years of paper catalogs to remember the variety of topics they published.
