Radio Planet Books

Illustrated books for your shelves or your eBook reader

Astro Diner, from The Lair of the Clockwork Book

These are books for people who like books, and they’re books for people who like pictures; but, most of all, these are books for people who like their books and their pictures together.

A book is like a journey

Books take you on a day trip to a place you’ve never visited – which you may never visit – and while you’re there you can meet the locals, get an idea of what their lives are like and (pretty often) see what terrible things go wrong for them… and what they do about that.

A book is a little package full of lives and places, and all you need to do is to open it.

And pictures? Well, what kind of trip would it be if there weren’t pictures of the things you saw along the way?

And, more than ever, you can take books anywhere

There’s something particularly nice about illustrated books on paper. But these days it’s also possible to store a vast number of books on a small device, and that’s an ideal way to read them on your own journeys. So you can get Radio Planet Books either way.

These books are available online through all of the usual retailers (like Amazon, Kobo, and Barnes & Noble) but you can buy your eBook editions right here at the Radio Planet Books site. Just pay with PayPal and you can download your book right away.

You can buy Radio Planet’s books online through all of the usual retailers. So if there’s a site you like best, you can go buy them there. You’ll find links to them right on these pages.

The Amazon and Kobo links will direct you to your own country’s version of Amazon or Kobo.


But if it’s an eBook you're after, you can order those right here through Paypal. Just click on the ‘Radio Planet’ link for each book.

Kindle (Mobi) and Kobo (ePub) users can add these books to their devices by connecting them with a USB cable; Kindle users can also email the files to their Kindles. (Your Kindle’s email address is available here, under ‘Your devices’.)


We had this plan to take control of the brains of bookstore buyers... but that turned out to be more difficult than expected. So it’s possible that your local store may not have these books in stock.

You know what, though? If they don’t have them yet they’d be happy to special order the books for you.

While you’re there, try to convince them that the tinfoil hats don’t really work. If they'd just take those things off our books could be everyplace.
