Please read the below information before placing your order

I have offered choices for clients in Europe and Australasia to select either surface shipping or air mail. I regret the high costs and the long delays but have no control over these. Shipments to Europe and Australasia are NOT tracked (this is another $15-20 cost) and I cannot take responsibility for packages that do not arrive. If you do not agree then please do not place an order.

I have acquired custom boxes for clients in Europe and Australasia that should ensure that you book arrives safely and undamaged. Should there be any damage please take this up with your postal carrier. If you do not agree then please do not place an order.

I regret having to take this approach but too many complaints have been received about the long delays in shipment. At times this has involved the shipment of a replacement copy only to have the first order finally arrrive. Although I value your business I cannot continue to subsidize poor service by the various postal organizations.

Canadian and US buyers will benefit from both tracking and insurance.
