Happy advent, one and all, or BOGOF

The short version

Look! Look! We’re offering buy one get one free on subscriptions for the duration of December!

The long version

The evenings are drawing in and there’s a chill in the air. In other words, it’s the perfect weather to curl up with some short fiction or poetry and a cuppa of something chocolatey or even some mulled wine. The problem is, of course, that it’s December, and you can’t buy yourself that coveted new edition of [insert title here], because you’ve been hinting for WEEKS that you want to find the book under the Christmas tree…

To get you out of the conundrum (yes, we know you’re thinking about starting the fantasy novel you bought for your nephew…), we’re offering a special deal on subscriptions to Far Off Places: for the duration of December, if you buy yourself a subscription to Far Off Places, you get a second subscription free which can go to a friend (or an enemy, if you like to keep your enemies close…). So not only do you have your fix of winter (and spring, and summer) reading, but you also have one more Christmas present sorted. Doesn’t that feel good?

All you have to do is go to our sales page, fill the form in as normal and add the email address of someone you love in the field entitled “A friend’s email”. Nice and simple!

In case you’re wondering, this is what’s on the Christmas wishlists of the Far Off Places editorial team:

Annie - Joanna Rakoff’s My Salinger Year, anything by Edwin Morgan

Beth - all of the Hawkeye comics by Matt Fraction, and The Art of Avatar: The Last Airbender

Ceris - Laura Bates’ Everyday Sexism, Neil Gaiman’s Fragile Things
