My magazine arrived in perfect condition, and was exactly as described. It was extremely well packaged (with a piece of cardboard to protect the magazine, wrapped in a plastic bag, then in newspaper, and finally in heavy brown craft paper which kept it complete protected. (April 2024)

I received my order and just wanted to say thanks.  It is in great condition and was packaged extremely well.  Thanks!  (March 2024)

Well-packaged delivery came within a week from UK to US; product was honestly described. So many rare book sellers have an extortionate mindset but FL very fairly prices their items. Clearly they love books and want to pass on the privilege of reading rarities to their customers without crucifying anyone's wallet. Next time I plan to order directly from FL because they deserve every penny. 5 stars January 2024

Dear Simon, the book arrived yesterday and is as always in great shape. Thanks again for the easy handling of the transaction! May 2023

Hi Simon, Just received my book, thank you so much for including the newspaper wrap, it reminded me of the old fish n chips, lol! Plus was able to read a bit of Brit news. I appreciate the care that was taken in the excellent wrapping of this book, it arrived completely intact and undamaged,  considering how long it was traveling that’s not an easy feat! May 2023

Received the book a full 4 weeks before the ETA date, the book itself was in such new condition that i didn't want to open afraid to warp the spine. This book was the best wrapped book i have ever received, will be looking in to their web site and Amazon page for any older book i will be looking to get from my classic Sci-fi novel wishlist's. March 2023

Dear Simon & Laraine,This is just a brief message to say thank you for the brilliantly wrapped book! I really appreciate the care taken. All best wishes, Ben Feb 2023

The book arrived in a very timely way, in good condition and exquisitely wrapped! Thank you for taking such care with this very modest order. The book is for my 91 year old (troglodyte) mother, who has gained an appreciation of the fictional world. Please let us know where we can leave a review!  January 2023

A bibliophile's book seller. Quick service. Bulletproof, and waterproof packaging. Can you ask for anything more? June 2022

I just wanted to say how happy I am with my book  (a couple of weeks ago, I ordered the beautiful Strange Gateways from Simon Kurt Unsworth from you). It arrived today, and in perfect condition. Thank you so much for packaging Strange Gateways the way you did; I couldn’t be more grateful for the care you took to ensure its journey was as safe as it could be.

Just to report safe arrival this morning (Wednesday March 23rd)  of ‘Silky’ by Elizabeth Coatsworth, the last of the author’s ‘Incredible Tales’ which we needed to find. A lovely copy (almost 70 years old!)  in wrapper, thank you. Much appreciated.

Item condition as described. Very careful packaging (cardboard to prevent book from bending, protected in plastic wrap, which was then wrapped in newspaper for extra cushioning; really appreciate the care took in making sure it arrived in good shape!). Arrived in time. Thank you! March 2022

Selten so gut verpackte Bücher erhalten! Sehr sorgfältig in mehrere Lagen Zeitungspapier eingewickelt und dann in stabilem Versandkarton. Schnelle und zuverlässige Lieferung. March 2022

Best packaging I've ever seen for a paperback: stiff cardboard to protect 1st Edition Like New Pristine copy, wrapped in plastic bag, wrapped in newspaper with tape, and finally wrapped in brown paper! Due to New Years holiday, the item was delivered the following Monday, although the Post doesn't acknowledge yet that it's here. Very pleased with quality and service! Amazon US Jan 2022

Simon and crew at Fantasticlit are great and though there was a delay in the international shipping (understandable supply logistics problems in the covid era), the customer service here couldn't be beat! Nice folks to work with. Amazon US Jan 2022

I couldn't see an easy way of providing feedback on Abe's Books website so I just wanted to write to you to say that the book arrived very well packed. So much better packaged than the other eight books I ordered from different companies that I wanted to give you a shout out. Excellent protection and packaged with real care. Thank you. David.

I want to thank you so much for this book! It's perfect. I've now received 2 books from your company and couldn't be happier. You operate with high integrity; sending the book promised even in better condition than described! Amazon US June 2021

Exceptional care was taken in packaging the book for shipping; wrapped in paper and then backed with corrugated cardboard. I'm most impressed and appreciative. AND it arrived well ahead of schedule.

Arrived well within the estimated delivery timespan and in very good condition. Especially impressed by the quality of the packaging: best I've seen for any paperback I've received via Amazon. Only remark I would make is to please enable accurate tracking information. In all I'd definitely recommend ordering from this seller. April 2021

Item shipped on 2 April from the UK, arrived here in the NE US today, 15 April. Considering the state of the world and shipping from the UK in general, this is outstanding! Book arrived in pristine condition and exactly as described. Extremely well packaged, AND I got to read a bit of the Times, from the 29th of March. :) Definitely order from Fantastic Literature UK again. Thanks so much!

Just wanted to say thank you, it’s rare to find a private book seller on amazon nowadays who knows how to grade the condition of a book fairly, and pack/post sensibly using recyclable materials. Good work folks!

UNEINGESCHRÄNKT EMPFEHLENSWERT! TOP VERKÄUFER! Das Buch war wie beschrieben und der Versand nach Deutschland sehr schnell. Das Beste war aber, wie sorgfältig und sicher das Buch verpackt wurde, damit es heil ankommt. Vielen Dank dafür. Ich kaufe sehr gerne wieder hier ein. Amazon De Dec 2020

Fantastic Literature sell collectable books at good prices. I've found their descriptions 100% trustworthy, so 'used - like new' means your used book is actually like new. They offer a prompt service and the books are securely packaged with a cardboard insert to help prevent them from being damaged in the post. So, if you're after a collectable used book, check out these guys. (Amazon UK Nov 2020)

I just wanted to say thank you. Such great care and attention was taken in the wrapping and packaging of my book - Thank You. I am a Very Pleased Customer!! Thanks Again. (UK customer, Oct 2020)

This book is in unbelievably excellent condition. FL deserves 7 stars on this one. This is the best bookseller I have had. They do everything right.

Thank you for the prompt shipment under these trying times.The book arrived reasonable on time and in great shape.

As soon as things straighten up a little I would be happy to use the provided discount code as there are several other books in series that I have lent out over time and would like to replace. Especialy Piers Anthony novels in the Xanth and Adept series.Once again thank you for the fantastic service. Amazon Com June 2020

The item's condition is exactly as described, and I am thoroughly pleased with it. It did arrive late, but that is understandable considering the difficulties with international shipping during these troubled times, and fantasticlit_uk was very prompt and courteous with their reply when queried about the overdue shipment. Amazon Com June 2020

Received Michener’s Journey from you folks today via AbeBooks order.  Over the years I’ve ordered several books through AbeBooks and more than a few from Amazon.  I can’t think of another occasion when a book was so properly prepared for shipping.  Wrapped in plastic, then in newspaper (thanks for that too - made for interesting reading - seems that people in your part of the world also think that Trump is a jerk) and finally in a sturdy outside wrapper.  The book arrived in perfect condition.  Thank you for the good work.The Journey crossed eight time zones to get to me - a proper journey in its own way. (ABE June 2020)

And I won't even tell you how much I paid because you will feel sick,real sick that you missed it! Excellent,excellent Seller!!! (Amazon US May 2020)

I just wanted to send you my thanks for the (very well packaged) Philip K Dick is Dead, Alas by Michael Bishop. My Husband and I were chatting the other night and he happened to mention that it was one of his favourites (he talked a lot about it!) so I sneakily ordered it for our wedding anniversary this coming weekend whilst he was wistfully remembering it!!  He was so pleased to see it this morning, even said it was the same cover that he remembered. So thank you, in unprecedented times like we have right now, it is a blessing to be able to find something so personal and so meaningful as to make my husband grin from ear to ear like he did earlier. No doubt I will be hearing more about it before I get the chance to read it myself!!  Stay safe & Keep well. May 2020

Ridiculously well packaged so contents were pristine (Amazon UK May 2020)

Just a few words to thank you, sincerely and from the heart. “Nova” by Robert Delany has just arrived, so carefully packaged that – as usual with me – the opening procedure turned onto a surgical one. I just didn’t want to ruin it – both the physical package and the experiece, ahah. Oh me of little faith, I was starting to think the book would never get here, but here it is! Also thanks for the bookmark and the discount code, that was so nice of you. Stay safe, and keep spreading fantastic literature around. Direct order to Italy.

I am letting you know that I received the book on 4/16/20. And I am very happy with the book, Do to your packaging it survived the shipment in excellent condition. We enjoyed reading the newspaper that the book was wrapped in. (Amazon US April 2020)

Books quickly arrived in conditioned described. So pleased with this purchase that I made an additional one directly from the seller. Amazon CA Feb 2020

Thank you for the excellent customer experience I have been afforded through my recent purchase. It was obvious extensive care was taken in wrapping my book for shipment. My wife is a librarian and commended the recycling effort regarding the tabloid paper used for the interior packaging. I, a retired engineer, greatly appreciated the opportunity to brush up on current news as per the Observer article of 12.01.20 regarding prince Harry and Meghan Markle recapping events going back to 2011.  As I am a volunteer at our local library I was compelled to share your presentation to our library staff and with our local postal clerk.  All were greatly entertained with the exception of our postal clerk after I jokingly pointed out what was being distributed under his watchful eye. My customer experience brought back memories of an old movie I saw in the mid 1980's entitled "84 Charing Cross Road". My wife and I watched the movie this evening after borrowing a copy from the library.  It afforded us a much need mental health break from the current political situation in the USA.  For that gift of inspiration we are eternally grateful and wish all of you the best in years to come.

Many thanks for the Dr. Who novel 'the ark' I had watched the story on DVD, but didn't realise it was not in my library! That was some well wrapped up book; first the envelope, then the book wrapped in newspaper, with two bits of cardboard to protect it and finally in a plastic bag for safety; all layers firmly sealed down. Thanks for the extra care and consideration.  (Amazon UK August 2019)

Just a few words of acknowledgement from a satisfied customer in California...I received a paperback book from you today. Despite it being a common and inexpensive item, the job that you did on protecting and shipping it was extraordinary. Layers of board, plastic, newsprint and thick paper. Outstanding! I appreciate your thorough professionalism, and will look to you first in the future when I am looking for a rare or out of print book.

Will definitely be ordering from you direct next time.  March 2019

I would also like to thank you guys for the awesome service.  The condition the book turned up in was amazing, and even more impressively was the packaging you sent the book in.  Brilliant! (Biblio Feb 2019)

First, fast shipping to Canada. Second ... you would not believe how well Fantastic Literature packs a book! A piece of cardboard supports the book, then wrapped & taped in plastic, then double wrapped & taped in newspaper, then the whole thing is wrapped in sturdy brown paper. They treat every purchase like it was a museum-piece collectible! I'm simply amazed every time I order from them. A+++++  Amazon Ca Feb 2019

The most carefully wrapped & packaged book I've ever received in the mail. As for the slim volume itself, the cover is beautiful and the stories a combination of Lord Dunsany, Algernon Blackwood, and a big bowl of hash. Amazon Jan 2019

I want to give special kudos to this seller for their packaging. My book arrived wrapped tightly in brown paper and well-sealed with tape, protected by newspaper, hard cardboard, and a plastic bag.

Book is in better condition than expected, they clearly care about the items they sell. The book arrived from the UK to the US 5 days before the expected delivery, and before any of the other books in the trilogy from US based sellers. Packaging is paper based, moisture protected, and recyclable. I also love the bonus wrapping in a page from the local news from the day I ordered it, bonus reading!  Amazon US January 2019

Outstanding service. The careful manner in which this (comparatively scarce?) book was wrapped in preparation for its journey through the post, is particularly appreciated. And the item was received well ahead of the earliest indicated delivery-date.  Amazon UK Dec 2018

Very pleased with purchase. I've ordered lot of books from England & they are always in the same kind of mailers. this book came w/a cardboard stiffener on the back of the book, hand wrapped in newspaper & if I remember correctly in a plastic bag and then hand wrapped again in brown mailing paper.

Everything excellent but most of all the very efficient packaging: the paperback book was protected by a carton in the back (against possible bending) as well as a plastic bag (as a second layer against possible moisture intrusion) and the whole lot had 2 paper wraps. Keep it simple and efficient. I would not hesitate a split second to buy from them again. A+     Amazon de August 2018

This is absolutely the very best UK seller I've ever ordered from! The book was in excellent condition and packaged extremely well.

Fastasticlit_uk is now my preferred overseas bookseller and they get my highest recommendation. Amzon US May 2018

I am a stickler for book condition and this book was described as 'as new'. Guess what? It was EXACTLY as described, packaged superbly and arrived very promptly. Very pleased indeed. Amazon UK Mar 2018

By far the most safely-wrapped book I've ever ordered. It's like you knew this was one of the most important Doctor Who novels I was purchasing online! Thank you for that and such a quick delivery. Amazon US Feb 2018

Brilliant service and great packaging. I was genuinely surprised that the package was labeled as "fragile". Maybe that is why it arrived in perfect condition - usual dispatches from UK to Finland have been more or less damaged on delivery. Book itself was also as described; like new.  Amazon UK Feb 2018

I just wanted to thank you for packing Cleopatra 7.2 so carefully. I met Elizabeth Ann Scarborough on Facebook through a friend the other day and she recommended the Cleopatra books to me as a starter.

The other Cleopatra book is on the way from the US as there were no copies available on Amazon in the UK, but I'm looking forward to it.  Amazon UK November 2017

I recently bought a brand new copy of Horror: A literary history from you via Amazon. I am contacting you to say that the service you provided is one of the best I have received from any seller of books (and I've used a fair few). The care taken to wrap and package the book was second to none and, probably needless to say, the book arrived in pristine condition. I took a chance on buying from you principally as the price you were selling the book at was more than competitive, but it turned out to be a risk worth taking. (Feedback direct from client 5/11/2016)

This is just a short note to let you know that I have been very much pleased with the books I have been purchasing from you, including this one. They are always in the stated condition and very reasonably priced, indeed the best prices I have seen on the Internet. Your books always arrive very rapidly, in fact I usually get them long before I get U.S. books ordered at the same time. Thank you for your assistance. I hope we may have business dealings in the future (Amazon US 21/10/16)

Top reliable customer oriented seller. Book arrived well ahead of schedule using only media mail. Sent in well padded envelope. Enlosed in a plastic sleeve that was carefully wrapped in newspaper. Condition as listed. Am repeat customer. Very highly recommended. (Amazon US 18/10.2016)

Excellent, a lovely book in fabulous condition. Arrived very quickly and very well wrapped. A very highly recommended 5* seller, will buy from again (Amazon UK 08/10/16)

Llegó antes de lo previsto. No tenía muy claro cómo iba a ser el libro físicamente, porque es de las primeras veces que compro por Amazon, pero aún así no defraudó. Es lo normal al comprar por internet, pero el pago fue seguro y la entrega rápida. ¿Qué más se puede pedir? (Amazon ES 16/09/2016)

Excellent service. And, as ever, the best, sturdiest packaging of any Amazon seller I've dealt with. Thanks (Amazon UK 30/08/16)

100 per cent professional as ever: the wheat of online selling, not the chaff. (Amazon UK 25/08/16)

Excellent service. Book was well packaged, delivered on time, and in first rate condition for its age. Le service était excellent: le livre était bien emballé, la livraison a eu lieu dans le délai prévu et il était en parfait état pour son âge. (Amazon Fr 21/08/2016)

I've just received my book and it's even better than described. I am extremely happy with your service and I absolutely appreciate the way you put so much care in packaging safely and securely the item. I'd say I tend to collect hardbacks and it feels great to purchase from a seller such as you folks who clearly understand and respect books. I couldn't be any happier so thank you ever so much indeed. I shall be using your voucher code in the near future. (direct order 19/08/2016)

In stark contrast to books purchased from Amazon directly, this book was robustly packaged with care and therefore arrived in pristine condition. A proper book seller. I will undoubtedly purchase titles from you in the future. Cheers (Amazon UK 14/07/2016)
Paperback arrived in used-vg condition just as described in 3 layers of hand-crafted wrapping that would have protected it through rain/hail/sleet/snow/being run over by a truck and 2 weeks ahead of the earliest expected time. Thanks! (Amazon US 12/07/2016)
Excellent, book as described, arrived promptly, and the best packing that I have seen in a long time !! (Amazon UK 04/07/2016)
Shipped promptly, expertly packaged. Rare 1963-vintage SF paperback anthology is in excellent condition, exactly as advert. As always, an A+ purchase from Fantastic Lit UK. Thank You! (Amazon US 04/07/2016)
Excellent quick service. The book was so beautifully packaged I was almost reluctant to unwrap it! Book condition exactly as described. Many thanks. I will keep watch for other books offered by you. (Amazon UK 08/06/2016)
I just received my copy of 'The Disposessed' from you. I previously contacted you to check it was the copy I wanted which you confirmed. I just wanted to say that the way you package books is brilliant, I wanted this purely to replace a much loved damaged copy and so it coming well protected was really nice. I'm grateful for the good communication too. (Direct order 03/06/2016)

Fantastic Literature are amongst the best book resellers in the world. FAST shipping from UK to Canada. Packaged professionally with a courtesy note included. Buy with confidence from this wonderful small business which consistently brings customer service to the next level. Thank you!  (Amazon Ca 7/5/2016)

I have bought items from this seller more than once. They continue to impress me with the condition of their books, speed of shipping and how well the books are packed for shipping. Keep up the excellent work (Amazon US 27/04/2016)

There's no one better in the UK (Amazon UK 22/04/2106)

I've never had a book packaged with such care and thought before. Hard cardboard cut to size for backing, clear plastic bag for waterproofing and then several layers of wrapped newspaper padding between that and the brown parcel paper itself. Survived being brutally shoved into the post box with the end exposed to heavy rain, my book pristine and 'like new' as promised. Thrilled, many thanks  (Amazon 12/04/2016)

Delivered 3/17/2016 - well ahead of estimate of 4/1-4/14 - all the way from England, not bad! Exactly as described. Somehow package got wet along the way - wetter inside than outside when got here but book did not get wet because was protected by plastic bag. As damp as inner paper was, book would have been ruined without the plastic! Great job! Definitely buy from them again. Thanks! (Amazon US 17/3/2016)

Great seller! Good shipping time UK to US (received well before delivery estimate), new book as described, great deal! (Amazon USA 29/03/2016)

Excellent ++ A name you can trust for fantasy and science fiction, like Graham Holroyd in the States. The seemingly increasing number of chancers selling books online do sellers like these no favours. (Amazon UK  01/02.2016)

Preternaturally speedy service; just over a little over a week after I'd placed my order before this item landed in my loving arms. I'd happily do business with this seller again (Amazon Ca 09/02/2016)
