Advance Payment and Return Policies for Open Access Titles

Parlor Press publishes a large number of titles that are available online for free and also in low-cost print versions. So that we can continue to offer these titles in free online editions, we require that orders for printed copies be paid for at the time of purchase. They may not be returned unless damaged in transit or there's another defect. Bookstores should be aware that many instructors don't require printed versions of these titles or, even when they do, students use the free online versions. So adjust order quantities carefully! If you have questions about whether a specific title is returnable, please email
