WHAT IS FOC (FINAL ORDER CUTOFF)?

It’s the date retailers must submit their final orders before publishers set their print runs.  Which means it’s also the “final call” for you to preorder from Pulp Fiction and lock in your order with your subscription discount.  You may still order these items past this due date, but availability may be limited and items may be priced at current market going rate.
