To Order from Catbird Press

We realize that most book buyers do not want to order from small publishers such as Catbird. But Catbird books (at least the ones made out of paper) are often listed as "special order" or "out of print," and bookstores don't want to order them for people, so there is sometimes no other way.

We would like to make it easy for you to buy our books. However, since we sell so few books directly, we do not take credit cards. But we do accept payment via Pay Pal.

To order, simply call or e-mail us. We will enclose an invoice and stamped envelope with the books, and you can send a check or money order, or pay via Pay Pal (our Pay Pal e-mail address is

Also, for each book you buy from us, you can buy another of our books at half-price (and it is the more expensive book whose price is halved). So, if you want Karel Čapek's Tales from Two Pockets, which is priced at $14.95, you can also try, for just $6.47, a copy of a wonderful humor book by Jeffrey Shaffer It Came with the House, which is priced at $13.95. How does this work? Since the more expensive book will be half-price at only $7.47, the total cost of the two books is only $21.42, so adding the Shaffer humor book costs you only $6.47!

Shipping within the U.S. is just $5.00, no matter how many books you order; for shipments over $50, shipping is free. Sorry, but we do not ship outside the U.S. But many of our books are available in the U.K. through Turnaround Publisher Services, 181-829-3000, or through U.K. publishers. Our Czech titles are also available in bookstores in the Czech Republic.
