Hello Grim Oak Community!
Greetings and Best Wishes for a wonderful 2021! We at Grim Oak are looking forward to this New Year and the opportunity to bring you some exciting new titles!
On that note, we have good news! After the long process of circulating signature pages, Unfettered II Signed & Limited Edition is finally at the printer! Thank you all for your patience regarding this project. This will be a gorgeous book signed by all contributors and illustrators. The book is limited to 500 copies, has a sewn in ribbon, a full-color interior piece of artwork, is leather-bound and comes housed in a leather-bound slipcase. This book will definitely be a worthy contribution to your collection and should match up nicely with the Unfettered Signed & Limited Edition. Copies are still available HERE!
Due to customer demand, we have clamshells available for this title for those of you who prefer clamshells. We have had pre-orders open for Unfettered and Unfettered II and will be placing the order within the next two weeks. We are only producing the amount that are pre-ordered, no extras. So if you want one, order now HERE.
In other news, we have been able to secure a few copies of Subterranean Press's A Little Hatred by Joe Abercrombie. I am sure these will go quickly, so if you are interested, you may purchase on our storefront now!

A few other items of note:
We have finally received the slipcases for The Broken Empire and The Red Queen's War! We are extremely pleased with how they turned out and they look awesome on the shelf! One note on these, they are a snug fit width-wise. These books are massive and the paper tends to expand over time. When putting the book in the slipcase, squeeze the front corners. It is snug, but a good fit.
A note from the warehouse pertaining to our international customers, we have had excellent results shipping internationally with DHL. The packages arrive quickly and in excellent condition. We recommend looking at pricing for this carrier at checkout. We also check on our end and, if comparable, we will switch to this carrier. They will even call to schedule delivery if you are missed on the first attempt, so please be sure to add a phone number to your orders!!
That brings us up to date for now. We appreciate you and are truly thankful for your business. Take care and stay healthy!
The Grim Oak Team, Shawn & Becky
