How to order
BookIT

BookIT sells used and out-of-print books, primarily genre fiction like mystery and science fiction. We carry paperbacks, hardcovers, and fiction magazines, from the early 1800's to yesterday.

It doesn't matter whether you locate a title from our search box, located on every window, or our pre-formatted catalogs (which are accurate within 24 hours, but because books can span many catalogs, and they only appear in this section within 1 catalog, may not appear in the catalog you are looking at).

Simply click on the shopping cart symbol or the words 'Add to Cart', and the title will go into your shopping cart. (if you do so, and the catalog you were on disappears, or you are shown a different one, just use the 'Back' button on your browser to go back to the page you were on.)

At any time, you may use the View Shopping Cart link to change your order, or delete items ordered in error.

To finish your order, go to View Shopping Cart, and follow the Submit Order link. This takes you to a page where you can fill in your shipping information, your email (very important, as we will send your confirmation to his address), and your payment method.

When you have filled this in, click the Submit button, and a confirmation of your information will appear on screen. A copy will also be sent to you by email, and a copy will be sent to our order desk.

Next, we verify that the book is available, compute the appropriate postage, and send you a final confirmation that your order is ready.

Once payment is made for the final order, the books will be shipped to you promptly.

Optionally, you can set up a login and password for yourself, in the Create an Account box. If you do so, the shopping cart will remember your shipping and contact information from one order to the next, and items you place in your shopping cart will stay there until you delete them or place the order, regardless of whether you quit your session, or even switch to another computer. (If you do not have a login and password, your shopping cart is emptied when you leave our site.) No credit card information is kept in this file.

The people behind BookIT Enterprises
BookIT
Grant and Maureen Thiessen, founders of BookIT

Grant and Maureen Thiessen

The picture on the right was taken a few years ago, just before we left on a trip to France.

Bookit Enterprises Inc. was founded in 1998, when we went into semi-retirement from Pandora's Books, which was one of the leading sellers of out-of-print genre fiction.

We are no longer involved in Pandora's, as we sold the company to the very able Tim Friesen.

After a few years of semi-retirement, however, we went back into the book selling business, but as of 2014, we have gone back to semi-retirement, and now treat bookselling as a hobby, not a business. We are located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I have been reading and collecting science fiction and mysteries since 1959, and selling books since 1965. I am fairly knowledgeable in these fields, but have little pretensions to book knowledge outside of these areas.

We are not open to the public, doing all of our business by mail-order. We do not issue catalogs, preferring to prepare individual, tailored catalogs on the request of individual customers. We also keep a listing of our recent acquisitions in the archive.

As well as selling books, I have done a little bit of publishing, including 15 issues of a magazine called The Science-Fiction Collector/Megavore, a magazine devoted to bibliography in the science fiction field, and The Tanelorn Archives, a bibliography of Michael Moorcock. I have also written articles on books and book collecting for a number of magazines and reference books, and you will probably find my name in the credits in others, as well, like paperback price guides, bibliographies, etc.

And finally, here's an old picture of me at the computer, hard at work among the book stacks of Pandora's. That computer is long gone, but the books are still going strong.
