PENDING: Your order has been received and waiting to be entered into our master system. If it's a pre-order for a future item, these are entered last so we can ship current instock items to customers immediately.
UPDATED: Your order is processed into our "master" system (which is kept offline) and you will receive an update that the order is processing and has entered the shipping stage and you should receive your item shortly.
PRE- PARING PAYPAL: if our order states this, you still need to apply payment to this order to complete it. If you are paying by check/money order but hit the wrong payment button, just e-mail us and we'll note this in your account and get your order ready.
PRE-ORDERS: When you pre-order an item, we send it as soon as we receive it from the publisher. We do list the publishers release date on new items. Most items are received on or close to the publishers announced release. We cannot gaurantee that we'll receive it by the publishers release date as these dates can change. You will receive an update as we enter your order into the master system to gaurantee receipt of your order. This is the last notification you will receive. Your order is listed online (when you place orders at the website only) and you can always check your orders for reference. If you have any questions you can contact us.

We are a specialized bookstore that offers unique items in the genre of the fantastic. Many items we offer are not returnable because the manufacturers / publishers we offer are speccialized and they do not offer a return policy for their unique items.
Items are sold on a non-returnable basis unless there is a damaged shipment, and in that case we replace the item or give a refund if the item is not available.
If you've received a duplicate item, as in you were given a gift, etc., we would accept the return and you can have store credit. The customer pays for return postage / insurance / tracking and it has to be received in the same condition as we received, otherwise the item will be returned back to you.
In extreme cases you can contact us to discuss further on our contact us page, which is on any page here at our store.
