Catching up with Castalia Library

First, this is the mockup for the Castalia Library edition of AWAKE IN THE NIGHT LAND by John C. Wright. Unlike the other Library books, the pages are silvered rather than gilded, in keeping with the style and theme of Mr. Wright's modern science fiction classic.

Second, if and only if you're a subscriber, please note that we’re going to do things a little differently going forward, starting today. Instead of making multiple catchup payments to acquire earlier books that you missed, now you can make a single payment for that specific book. In the case of AWAKE IN THE NIGHT LAND, you can make a single payment of $100 if you happened to subscribe after April 30, 2020.

This change will help us keep track of exactly what you want instead of having to contact you via email or hope that you remembered to add a comment to your order. The only reasons to purchase a subscription catchup now are 1) if you happen to subscribe on the second month of any book or 2) if you run into a problem with your credit card.

The same holds true for Libraria Castalia subscribers, although there are a very limited number of books still available. You can see the various options now available to you here. We are rapidly approaching the end of the Book 4 subscription period, so if you're interested in THE DIVINE COMEDY by Dante Alighieri, you'll need to subscribe and make one subscription catchup payment before the end of Tuesday.

If there are still books available after the new subscribers get their shot at them, we will consider making them available for sale at the retail prices of $199 and $499.

Below is a preview of the title page. The next book in the subscription, Book 5, will be LIVES OF THE NOBLE GREEKS AND ROMANS, Vol. I by Plutarch.

By Jove that's beautiful. It's the kind of aesthetic that speaks to you in a deep soulful level. Absolutely gorgeous. You guys have really knocked it out of the park Vox.

Are there any news on shipping to Europe?

The artwork for both is superlative. Love it.

Not yet. We have a request to the bindery in about that.

Just curious about why Finland?

Blogger Ronius_Maximus June 28, 2020 3:39 PM  

Outside the basic essentials, this has been the best money I've ever spent.

I have to admit, Miles Mathis put a bit of a damper on my excitement for Plutarch

Best Hyperborea.

That's despair; don't let it move you. The accounts from the ancients are still worth reading, even when you have reason to distrust them.

Blogger My Shield Is Disgust June 28, 2020 7:03 PM  

True, that’s how I’ve been thinking about it. Right or wrong, Plutarch is important.

Can Library subscribers order the Libraria catchup and vice versa?

Blogger VD June 28, 2020 7:24 PM  

Libraria subscribers can order the Library catchup. We're not currently permitting the opposite because the numbers don't work.

Blogger VD June 28, 2020 7:25 PM  

The accounts from the ancients are still worth reading, even when you have reason to distrust them.

And even if they're actually medievals....

I've finally pulled the trigger on Libraria!

The $250 Awake in the Nightland Libraria edition is for a standalone copy with no other subscriptions required? I'm a library subscriber but I'd like the Libraria AitNL copy too.

Blogger SamuraiJeff June 28, 2020 9:24 PM  

Really hoping to grab one of the meditations at some point (stoic philosophy is my jam). Not interested in subscribing to the book club lol. If I had more money I would for sure.

Blogger Hylean June 28, 2020 10:27 PM  

Hey! Thank you for putting this out there, I didn't have the money when it was offered. I have bought it and look forward to it. Honestly, the gold is amazing, but that silver is the perfect aesthetic. 10/10!

No, absolutely not. These are subscriber-only prices.

Bold move!

Got the John C Wright catchup tonight. I was sad to miss out on it a few months ago. John C Wright's journey from a fedora tipping atheist to a fedora tipping Christian is funny and gives me a lot of hope.

Blogger Z MAlfoy June 29, 2020 7:30 AM  

I am so happy I got that raise months ago that allowed me to subscribe from the begging. I actually did some bookbinding in college, so the joy I get every time I open The Missionaries is so multilayered. Can't wait for the Aurelius to show up - it's going to be a belated Father's Day gift to my Dad. Although, he's a big fan of John C Wright . . .

Blogger Macs June 29, 2020 9:14 AM  

Oh Vox, why do you tempt me so? I am such a sucker for Plutarch! I am re-reading vol 2 on audiobook at work these days, it helps keep things in perspective.

Blogger mike mike June 29, 2020 9:54 AM  

Got it, that's what I thought. Seemed too good to be true!

Blogger Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi June 29, 2020 3:07 PM  

Still waiting on shipping to Canada! Thanks as always.

Blogger Greg Hunt June 29, 2020 5:17 PM  

I've signed up for some things and not for others. This looks like something I would have signed up for. Is there a way for me to check?
