For those of you who haven't heard:
Postage charges are going up in April 2014; eBay fees are increasing in May 2014.  We have always aimed to keep the total cost of our books (including postage) to less than $10.00.  Unfortunately, due to the ever-increasing costs, we'll have to increase our prices slightly from early May.  We will continue to keep our prices as low as possible, but sometimes (due to factors beyond our control) price increases are inevitable.  Many thanks to all our regulars, and we hope you call back often.


POURNELLE

Birth of Fire by Jerry Pournelle, published by Laser in 1976 (1st printing).  191 pages.    

This small format paperback is in very good condition - page edges are yellowed; one spine crease.  Please study the pic(s) provided to help you decide.



POSTAGE
Flat-rate postage costs in Australia are:
1 'A' format (or regular-sized) paperback = $4.50;
2 'A' format paperbacks = $8.00;
3 'A' format paperbacks = $3.00;
4 or more = $FREE.

There are 2 exception to the above:
1)  Some books are thin enough to be sent at the much cheaper 'letter' rate.  In which case, postage will be $2.75 to anywhere in Australia.
2) Larger format paperbacks and hard covers (due to their weight and size) generally need a 3kg satchel ($13.40), which means there's plenty of room for more (hint hint).

When buying more than 1 item, please drop us a line when you've finished so that we can send you an invoice with adjusted postage, otherwise the eBay system will charge you the full postage amount on every single item.

Sorry, we don't send books overseas due to the exorbitant costs (the average pb costs $17.50).

BOOK CONDITION
As much as possible, we use eBay's generic definitions.  However, there are only a handful of them, so there will be some variation from book to book.  (We also sell comic books, which have over 30 different grades to explain the condition and, at times, we'd still like more.)

RETURNS
As a general rule, we don't accept returns because the cost of return postage is more than the value of the book.  This does not mean that we won't give refunds, where required by law.  If we misrepresent any item, we will send a full refund (including postage).  If there is ever a problem, just drop us a line and we'll work with you to resolve the issue.

PAYMENTS
Bank deposit is our preferred payment method.  When using this option, please let us know the reference you use so we know whose payment we have received.

OTHER INFO
1) All pictures are of the item you will receive.  We don't use 'stock' photos.

2) Before leaving negative feedback, please let us know that there is a problem and we'll do our best fix it.

3) Don't hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have (eg: What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?)

4) Sometimes, work commitments will take us out of town for a day or two, so please make allowances (just in case).

5) Have a great day!
