Hungry Bear Publishing announced today that its first book -- "New York State's Mountain Heritage: Adirondack Attic, Volume 1," by Saranac Lake author Andy Flynn -- is now out of print. It was released in May 2004.
"That means we are critically low on copies of this book, and there will not be a second printing," said Hungry Bear Publishing publisher and "Adirondack Attic" author Andy Flynn. "We have made plans to sell the rest of the books on our web site."
Hungry Bear Publishing will sell its remaining 50 copies of "Adirondack Attic 1" during a special "Going Out of Print Sale" on HungryBearPublishing.com as part of a set. Buy the six "Adirondack Attic" books for $99.95 (a savings of $7.00) and get six Adirondack Attic bookmarks for free.
Since "Adirondack Attic Volume 6" will not be released until the spring of 2010, people who buy the complete sets will get the first five volumes immediately (plus five bookmarks), and Hungry Bear Publishing will ship Volume 6 when it is released. Shipping is an additional $10.00.
"Volume 6 will be the final book in the series, so this is the last time people can get a complete set of signed 'Adirondack Attic' books from Hungry Bear Publishing," Flynn said. "As other volumes of 'Adirondack Attic' are sold out, they will not be re-printed, so this is definitely a set to collect."
Single copies of "New York State's Mountain Heritage: Adirondack Attic, Volume 1" are still available at bookstores and gift shops in the Adirondack region.
The six-part "Adirondack Attic" book series features more than 300 human-interest stories about a variety of artifacts at the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake, N.Y. The books represent a collection of Flynn's "Adirondack Attic" column, which ran weekly in several northern New York newspapers from 2003 to 2009. Volume 1 includes the full set of columns, a total of 45, from the inaugural year.
