What happens when you get a bunch of authors, readers and fans, stick them on a continent far, far away from everyone else, and leave them to their own devices?
We order stuff online. And then cry over shipping costs.
Then complain about shipping costs on social media.
Then we get creative.
The Never Never Book Box spawned out of an obsession with all things speculative fiction, and a love for opening presents. We wanted to create a bookish subscription box that demonstrated the diversity and talent of the Australian Speculative Fiction community, created by readers for readers. And we wanted something affordable, without sacrificing the quality of our titles or merchandise.
So, late one night, from the mind of a mad-woman with internet access emerged the Never Never Book Box, Australia’s first Speculative Fiction Book Box.
We want every box to be a special experience for our subscribers. To feel like they’ve added a little bit of magic to their world.
Our titles are exclusively Speculative Fiction works, with both Adult and YA titles.
Never Never HQ is based on the NSW South Coast, where the crew of the Jolly Roger carefully pack your boxes and ship them off to you using the finest in Pixie Dust transportation.
I Solemnly Swear
We at The Never Never Book Box do solemnly swear:
- To Never Never be Boring:
every box will have a new and exciting theme, centred around books that will indulge the imagination. Just Fine simply won’t cut it.
- To Never Never leave you without a Friend:
we are a community of Lost Boys, searching for the ‘extra’ in the ordinary. And we will never leave you alone with your book hangovers. We host discussion groups and spoiler chats on Goodreads and Facebook about our latest books, and each subscriber will be paired with another, to share the reading experience with in real time. We want to hear from you.
- To Never Never skimp on quality:
everything that goes into our boxes is tested with cannon fire… but really, we aim to provide quality bookish merchandise, including exclusive items only found in The Never Never Book Box.
- To Never Never forget the author:
we always include a signed book plate and a personal letter from the author of our main title. Connecting our subscribers with the authors they love, and letting authors connect with the fans that make them successful.
- To Never Never let you down:
Our subscribers are what make our community great. We promise to work hard to present you with the best possible experience ever time our box arrives on your doorstep. From the titles to the paper inserts, every detail has been created to better your experience.
