Death of Pushkin Weekend Special – The Duel x5 for as low as $14.99!


To commemorate the passing of one of Melville House’s favorite writers, Alexander Pushkin, we’re running a weekend long sale on his seminal work of Russian prose fiction: Tales of Belkin.

The eBook editions will be $1.99 all weekend long. And the print edition will only be $5. That’s half off, mind you.

Since the noble poet died from wounds received in a duel, and because we happen to have five of the greatest stories about dueling, we’re going to discount them as well.

The print bundle of The Duel x5 is only $29.99. That’s five book for $29.99, Saturday and Sunday only.

The eBook bundle of The Duel x5 will only be $14.99.


In addition, as these are HybridBooks, these editions include all of the dueling related Illuminations content, including the portions on how to properly conduct a duel. After all, what better way us there to honor one of the greatest writers of all time?
