Original Interceptor & FF suppliers

Research costs money, son. How much do you wanna know?

All of my books are sold at the original published price. This does not vary with time. The originality guide cost A$250 on  issue in 2015 and that will not change. 

What does increase with time is the postage this goes up every few months. In the years since the earlier books were published, postage costs have risen a lot, to the point where now the postage cost is approaching the original cost of the book. For buyers outside Australia, the exchange rate may move as well, either in your favour or against you. 

The prices below take into account the fixed price of the book, the current postage costs and the prevailing exchange rate.

You can purchase Original Interceptor & FF from a select group of outlets or direct from me. If you live outside Australia, check with a supplier near you. If they have stock, fine you'll get your book quicker and (probably) cheaper. If not, or if you want a personalized copy, order direct from me. 

Here are the regular outlets with recommended retail pricing (postage extra):

* Delivery times

The delivery times quoted here are estimates only because the security measures now in place around the world to screen for potentially dangerous contents are having an impact. This means you can expect delays. There won't be anything in your parcel but paper and bubble-wrap but please understand that once your book leaves my hands, it's really out of my hands. 

** Insurance

Insurance is not necessary on trackable express delivery. If you want optional insurance on airmail or seamail, add US$10, EUR 7, 5 or NZ$10 per book. In the past 25 years, I've only had one book go astray (Leon Perahia, you are so unlucky). I think you should be fine without insurance but, if you don't take it, don't complain to me if something goes wrong. I retain posting receipts and will follow up on any delivery problems for you, but I won't make a refund unless you purchased insurance. 

*** Customs at your end

The books are covered under HS tariff number 4901.99.90 (origin Australia). Most countries do not levy a duty on books. If in doubt, check with your local authorities quoting the HS tariff number.
