This morning's post is a shameless plug for the Pike and Shot Society. Well worth a visit to their site even if, like me, you aren't a member, as there are some excellent books for sale. (I take no responsibility for any dents to your wallet if you haven't visited before. Please purchase books responsibly. 😉) link

Interesting but a flat 40% ROW handling and shipping charge makes this prohibitive.

But not everything gets a 40% shipping charge. Items in stock in the US are 20% shipping charge. Maybe you'll be lucky and what you fancy is in stock in the US?

No. The 20% rate only applies to US based stock being sent to a USA address.

@alan in Canberra.

For cheaper books 40% extra is not a bad deal. If you are a member, booksxare discounted quite a lot as well. Postage from UK to Australia is ridiculously expensive. We have family in Sydney and a package that would cost about £4.00 GBP to post within UK will be anything from £10.00 GBP to £25.00 GBP to send to Australia. We now try to source all birthday and Christmas presents from Australian sources. We used Book Depository a lot as well, but Amazon have pulled the plug on that.

While we are on the subject of the PSS, can anyone tell me what the most recent release of the Arquebusier is? This thread Le me to think that I haven't seen one for a long time.

The last issue was Volume 38, Issue 2. Hopefully issue 3 will be out soon.

alan in canberra:

As already mentioned there is a large discount for members of the Society which can make a big dent to the costs.

Also as the Society is a non-profit making organisation we are happy to just charge the cost of the postage or whatever you would like to do by arrangement. But I am afraid that unless you are making a large order you will not save much, or indeed make any saving at all :(

Contact the treasurer for this –
