Books for the Practical Historian
"A book should serve as the ax for the frozen sea within us." Franz Kafka

"If you invent two or three people and turn them loose in your manuscript, something is bound to happen to them - you can't help it; and then it will take you the rest of the book to get them out of the natural consequences of that occurrence." Mark Twain

We will close on 25 June (Thursday) for three weeks, for our annual sun-, sand-, seafood-, surf- and family-funfest on the East Coast (of the United States, although we wouldn't mind going to Australia's....) Ordering can, as usual, continue, but there will be a delay in shipping.

We are out of Barbara Nostrand's Name Construction in Medieval Japan (save for one damaged copy, which will go on sale shortly). We will put in an order with the printers on Tuesday, and therefore there will be a delay in when we will have it back in stock.

Postage to non-U.S. addresses:

We wish to strongly reiterate: all orders to addresses outside of the United States will require additional postage. We have not yet figured out how to persuade the store's software to put those addresses into a special category that sidesteps U.S. postage, so please ignore the postage charges on the order form. If you live elsewhere, we will send you an email with the additional charges, and offer you the choice to ante up or cancel; if you choose to cancel, your payment will be fully refunded, no questions asked.
