2) Then I'll confirm everything and mail everything immediately,
3) and then you can mail a check upon receipt and Horrible Satisfaction.

I really like Email, and if you want, you're also welcome to call me at 888DELSOL1 or fax me at 877DELSOL8 or carrier pigeon me at Horrible Books, 6574 Edmonton Ave, San Diego, CA, 92122.

And per a request by The Great Nadeem of Texas, here is an Excel Order Worksheet that you can use to order if you want.


Free Immediate Mailing  Free US Media Mail Shipping with Tracking to any of the 50 US States in about 1 week.  To reduce your Horrible Anticipation Time, you're welcome to pick up your Horrible Books at 6574 Edmonton Avenue, San Diego, CA, 92122 and leave a check under the mat.  If you are in a rush, FedEx Ground (1-5 Business Day Delivery depending on your proximity to Southern California) is available for $15.


No Sales Tax  There's No Sales Tax for anyone, anywhere, any ever.  If you're in California, I'll cover your Sales Tax.


Payment Options  I really like checks (no commissions :), and you can mail a check made out to Horrible Books upon receipt and Horrible Satisfaction to : Horrible Books, 6574 Edmonton Avenue, San Diego, CA, 92122.  For schools, libraries, and organizations that use purchase orders, they're totally fine.  And if credit cards or PayPal are your game, you can PayPal to ray@horriblebooks.com if you cover the PayPal Fees by clicking on the Send Money Tab, then the "I'm sending money to family or friends" Button, then the Continue Button, and then make sure the "I will pay the Fee" box is checked. As an FYI, if you pay via your PayPal Balance or your Bank Account, you don't pay a fee either. :)

Horrible Packing  I pack Books far better than anyone I know.  Books are my babies and I want you to receive them in new condition, since you're paying for New Books.  The key is that I never put Book corners next to the corners of the box.  Instead, I wrap Books in a plastic grocery bag to protect them from humidity, rain, and snow, and I make sure there's about an inch of crunched up newspaper protecting all the corners of the box.  Not just the corner corners, but the corners all the way from the bottom to the top of the box.  Then I put a half inch of crunched up newspaper around all 6 sides.  I tape it up well with Scotch Heavy-Duty Tape, and then I shake the box.  If I hear shuffling around, I reopen the box, add more newspaper, tape it up, and shake the box again.  Once it passes the Shake Test, that box of Books is Officially Certified as "Postal-Drop-Kick Proof", and better packed than 99% of the book publishers I've ever dealt with.  It's not rocket surgery! :)


Horrible Recycling  I use used boxes and used newspaper 100% of the time.  Feel free to use them again.  Reduce (Minimalist), Reuse (Resourceful), Recycle (Last Option Before Trash).


Horrible Refunds and Returns  In the Horribly Rare Event that you are not Horribly Satisfied with your Horrible Books, Email Horrible Ray and I will do my best to make you a Horrible Fan.


International Shipping  International Shipping is right out.  It's so expensive that it's not worth the cost or risk.  For Desperate International Horrible Fans, I recommend using the US Mailing Address of a Horrible Friend/Relative living/visiting the US, a PO Box or UPS Store in the US, a US Hotel you'll be visiting, or a US Military Mailing Address.


Horrible Advertising   Horrible Books relies on Horrible Word-of-Mom advertising.  I bow in your general direction!  And if you're really into all things Horrible, you're welcome to spread the Horrible Word and/or print out this Horrible Books Flyer to use as you wish.  Thank You!


Horrible Privacy  Horrible Books is committed to protecting your privacy.  When you order, I only need to know 2 things : 1) your mailing address to mail your Horrible Books to you, and 2) your email address to email your Invoice to you.  If you pay via check, I promptly deposit the check and it's never seen again.  If you pay via credit card, I need the credit card number, the expiration date, and the 3-digit code on the back (for AMEX, it's the 4-digit number on the front).  The credit card information is entered directly into Square.com's secure credit card site and is never seen again.  If you reorder with a credit card, I'll need all of the credit card information again, as I don't keep any credit card information anywhere.  I have not, do not, and will not sell, trade, or share any of your payment information.
