Q. How can I find a book that is no longer in print?

The Seren website features all our titles currently in print. If you cannot find a book then it’s quite likely that it is out of print. In this case our advice would be to try some of the online retailers that specialise in hard-to-find books, such as Abebooks and The Book Depository.
