MJ. Smith:

I would love to be able to carry the Chrysostom Press series of commentaries, as well as the works on the Lives of the Saints. Thanks for all of your suggestions, these are great! Feel free to contact me any time with more! :)

I had the thought a while ago, and cannot remember if I posted it. Has a Bishop Kallistos Ware collection been proposed? I think that would be very beneficial.

Many of his works are found with many different publishers, so it is a little trickier. We will do everything we can to make his stuff available, however.

Do them as one-offs if necessary. Logos's predilection for putting out authors' works at first only in a large collection of lots of their works sometimes makes me scratch my head. When I used to buy books in print format, I would always start with one of an author's books first to see if I liked it and wanted more before buying others. I would never buy up a whole bunch of them at a time. I know things are slightly different in the digital world when you can take a look first (but you could always browse through a book in the bookstore too; I still wouldn't buy several books by the same author all at once if I were only sampling that author for the first time). Having to wait until the collections are broken down to buy any books by an author is a bummer.

I promise I won't make a post for every new book, but since we're just building up our Orthodox library (and for those interested), we now have Scripture and Tradition by Edith M. Humphrey (an Orthodox Christian) available on pre-pub.

That looks like an excellent book.

Rosie,

I was simply responding to Clayton's inquiry into a Met. KALLISTOS collection.

I agree that there are many instances where it is wiser to release individual volumes as opposed to collections. I will definitely keep this feedback in mind for future Orthodox product launches! Smile

In peace,
Gabe

Where do you find that?

Never mind, I found it on the page Alabama told me about a couple of days ago and which I hadn't had time to check out yet. Unfortunately, however, clicking on the link takes me to an Amazon.com page where it costs $7.49, not $3.99...

No, wait, the Canadian link seems to actually be $3.99, and the Canadian dollar even seems to be slightly cheaper than the US one. The question, then, is if I'm allowed to buy from Amazon.ca. The UK page says I have to buy Kindle books from the US.

Doesn't seem like I'll be able to get this.Crying When I log in, amazon.ca calls me a "US customer" (Super Angry) and refuses to let me buy, while amazon.com quotes me a higher price because I'm not a US customer. They could at least make up their mind...

It's probably not necessary to inform us that The Orthodox Church is, in fact, Orthodox, but for books like this I'm very grateful for the information. Baker Academic, neutral title, unknown author, posted on the same day as nearly two dozen other books, and on top of that with a marketing error that made it seem like there was no prepub discount at all... -- I doubt I would have noticed it without your tip (and even with that I choose to ignore it until I found out that there actually was a discount after all, in spite of appearances). 

Wonderful quote, btw: "as Jaroslav Pelikan noted many years ago, ‘Tradition is the living faith of the dead; traditionalism is the dead faith of the living.’" I might put that in my signature some day.Smile

Gabe, you should check up on that book of yours. They have fixed nearly all the other errors, but not for 'your' book: http://community.logos.com/forums/p/70208/488892.aspx#488892.

If the final volume of the Philokalia is ever released perhaps they will get enough interest to release the set in electronic format.

Philokalia Vol. 5 is finally here (almost)
