Author-Signed Copies of Three New Books for Our Members!

Submitted by David Borden on (Issue #790)

We are excited to announce that authors of three important new works have each agreed to sign at least 25 copies for our newest membership offer!

(Click on the links above for more info on the three books. Phil's review of High Price is now online here, and reviews of the others are forthcoming.)

To donate, and to order any of these or other items we offer, please use our online donation form at, or scroll down for info on donating by mail. We are asking donations of $50 or more for a signed copy of any one or these books, $95 or more for signed copies of any two, or $135 or more for signed copies of all three. (If more than 25 people order the books by the time you place your order, we will ask the authors if they're willing to sign more. If that can't be worked out, we'll contact you and offer to make different arrangements, whether for a full or partial refund or to send different items.)

Now, $50 is a little more than we've asked for such items in the past, and of course they can be ordered online or purchased in a bookstore for less. Things have changed in the drug reform funding scene, making our organization more dependent on membership to continue our programs -- I hope you'll choose to support us at this time. Note that we continue to offer a range of books, videos, and gift items with donations of as little as $7 -- visit our donation form to see the full list.

Also note that donations to can be tax-deductible, supporting our educational work, or non-deductible, supporting our lobbying work. (Note that selecting any gift items reduces the amount of your donation that is deductible -- which with a smaller gift amount can be most of it.) Donations can be made by credit card or PayPal at, or sent by mail to P.O. Box 18402, Washington, DC 20036. If you are donating by check, please make it payable to DRCNet Foundation (if tax-deductible) or Drug Reform Coordination Network (if not deductible). If you wish to donate stock, the information to give your brokerage is Ameritrade, (800) 669-3900), DTC#0188, and account number 781926492 for tax-deductible gifts or 864663500 for non-deductible gifts -- please make sure to contact us if donating in this way.

Thank you for standing with us to stop the drug war's cruelties and meet the opportunity this time offers to make a brighter future. As recent events show, time and the truth are on our side!

I'll admit. I'm probably going to buy one of these three books. But I just can't justify spending $50 on it, even if the money is going to a great cause. An autograph is cool, but for me it doesn't raise the value of the book at all. I'll give this a week before buying one. If by next week you offer non autographed copies of these books for a more reasonable price then I'll buy from you guys instead of from Amazon (who, btw, is selling a hard cover copy of the book I'm interested in for under $13). I'd probably pay $25/book. I'd probably buy two for $42. I don't know if I'm interested in all three of the books, but I *might* consider them bundled together at $54.

Believe me, if I could afford to pay the $50 I would. One of those books looks really good.

Thanks for your feedback, here on the comment board as well as the email you sent before they showed up on the page. Right now we're just ordering one case of each book, which are being sent straight to the authors before going to our shipping house, so we're not offering unsigned copies at this time. If there's enough interest here in the books, we likely would do so later, but I'm not sure when that will happen if it does.

The $50 we're asking is pretty much for the purpose of donations to support the organization, the idea being you can also get one of these books if you donate that much. If you can't afford that much, but really want one of these books, I'd say don't feel bad if you have to purchase it elsewhere -- they're great works that we hope lots of people will buy. You can send us a donation separately, if the spirit moves you to do that, of any smaller or larger amount.

Also note that have a lot of other books and videos, and some other items, some available with donations of as little as $7. Those are really good items too, and not terribly old either. That list can be viewed in the drop-down menu on the donation page, and many of them have been reviewed on our site as well and can be found through the search link or in our Book Review archive.
