Classic literature, fantasy and science fiction in rare and hard-to-find vintage editions of superior condition, hardcovers and paperbacks 1870s -1980

Located in charming historic Hudson New York, Hudson Vintage Pulp and Rocket Works is a specialty boutique book seller (and buyer) focused on the best loved authors and titles from our earliest engagement with books.

Like you, we love books, and carefully curate our offerings so that you will always find something wonderful and nostalgic!

Some of our featured authors and titles include:
Alice in Wonderland
Ray Bradbury
Nancy Drew
Andy Warhol
In Cold Blood
The Dune saga
Star Wars
Philip K Dick
George Orwell
Ian Fleming
Beatrix Potter
The Wizard of Oz
F. Scott Fitzgerald
JRR Tolkien...

We are constantly searching out and acquiring the best condition hardcovers and paperbacks that we can find and offer them our space in Hudson on Warren St, and here on Etsy.

If there is a particular volume of interest you desire from one of the above authors, series or of related taste, touch base, we have many, many more titles than what will ever have time to put online.

Keep on reading!

Frequently asked questions
How does combined shipping work if I buy more than one item?

In most cases, I can offer combined shipping discounts on multiple items.

You do not need to do anything. Place your order for your items, and when I am fulfilling your order, I will credit back excess shipping fees to your account.

What if something happens to my package?

If an item gets stalled in transit, let me know. I can open a case with USPS to track it down. Please allow 2 weeks for me to work with USPS to locate your package.

If a package is marked "Delivered" but you did not get it, let me know. I will call your P.O. to speak with the carrier directly or have them check the GPS scan on the package. If theft is suspected, I will ask you to file a Stolen Mail Claim with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and your local law enforcement. These records are essential to help catch mail thieves.

If an item arrives damaged, hold on to all packing materials. I require photographs of the damaged item and the packing materials to refund. I may ask that the item be returned to me at my expense.

I forgot to update the address in my Etsy account! Now what?

If you notice the error prior to receiving the shipping notice, let me know ASAP.

Unfortunately, once a package is shipped out to an incorrect address, there is little I can do to get it back.

Please make sure your address within Etsy is correct before finalizing your order.

What is your return policy?

Art & Prints:

To request a return, please contact me within 7 days of delivery. Late requests may be declined.

The item must be returned to me in the same condition as when we sent it - I.E - "as new", salable condition - for a refund. Return shipping at buyers expense.

Refunds will be credited upon our receipt of the item.

I recommend that you purchase tracking and insurance for the return package, as items lost during return shipping not insured are sadly: lost.

Refunds are for the item price only.

As per our policies page, we are diligent about our descriptions, and in more than 7 years on Etsy, have never had a return.
