anyone else have problems ordering from/communicating with mythosbooks.com?

on July 3rd, I ordered a book from them, a book with a triple-digit price tag. not a minor purchase. I get an order confirmation saying it will ship in 3-5 business days. A calendar week goes by, I don't mind. there was a holiday. give it time.

another week goes by. Nothing. the website still says my order is "Pending." I send an email asking to check the status. days go by, no response.

this week, still no response to my first email. I give up and find the book I want someplace else. I send another email requesting to cancel my order. no response yet.

As I recall, the proprietor is a pharmacist and handles Mythos Books as a hobby. There are sometimes delays in shipping and communication, but I believe all is typically well in the end.

I ordered a book from them last year that, after months of delays, was revealed to not exist in their stocks. Money was refunded, yes, but the experience was still rather sour.

The Hat Rack: featuring (hopefully) in-depth and (possibly) insightful reviews of fantasy, science fiction and horror books.

I had a similar experience ordering from them. Apparently the owner has had an illness in the family and has been incommunicado as a result. I do wish he were up front with that on his site though. I had to go through a third party to get him to answer emails.

I purchased the lettered version of My Work Is Not Yet Done about a year and a half ago from Mythos books. I received it after about 4 to6 weeks (can't exactly remember) but that was sent from the US to the UK.

I've ordered from Mythos Books a couple of times, and I've found that they do take a little bit longer than most booksellers to get the books to me, but I do get them all right in the end.

Re: anyone else have problems ordering from/communicating with mythosbooks.com?

Just curious, has anyone ever gotten word on what became of Mythos Books? I read on a forum somewhere that as of 2010 there were plans for future releases. But apparently, that has never come to fruition.
