Copyright, Purchase Agreement, and Software License


Window Controls
Sci Fi - Arizona is one of the first author-owned-and-operated virtual bookstores on the INTERNET. As such, it is both an experiment and an exercise in faith. The products you obtain here are a hybrid: part software, part literary work. As such, they are much more easily duplicated than traditional forms of books. If people ignore my intellectual property rights by freely duplicating either the electronic or paper versions of the books they purchase here, then the experiment will fail and your reading choices will continue to be restricted to what you can find in your local bookstore or airport magazine rack. To prevent this, I ask that you take care not to violate these rights and that you abide by the following purchase agreement and software license. If you do not wish to abide by these terms, then please do not download any of the products for sale here in Sci Fi - Arizona.
In plain English, when you buy a book from Sci Fi - Arizona, you purchase the right to possess one (1) electronic version of the book and one (1) printed copy. You may also have a second electronic copy, either for archive purposes or for your personal use on a second computer.
If you become aware of unauthorized copies of any of our books in either electronic or hardcopy form, I  would appreciate learning the details. Please send a letter to our address or an email to
