Local pickup in Albany, NY: No shipping charge for pickup. Payment for books must be in cash or prepaid.
Mailing rates to addresses in the USA: $4.00 for the first volume, $1 each additional volume. Rates may occasionally be adjusted up or down for very heavy or very light books. Postal insurance is extra ($2.25 - $2.75) and optional (recommended for parcels with a total price of more than $20); orders with a total price above $100 are insured without additional charge.
Owing to the astronomical cost of international shipping, plus the general annoyance and inconvenience of calculating said astronomical shipping charges, deciphering customs forms, and quoting and processing payment in other currencies, I no longer ship to addresses outside the United States. Feel free to request that an order be shipped care of a friend to his/her address within the USA.
I accept personal or business checks drawn on a U.S. bank (must clear before orders are shipped), cash (in US dollars, Canadian dollars, or Euros only), or PayPal/PayPal International. I am unable to accept credit or debit card payments except through PayPal. I accept international payments only through PayPal in U.S. dollars--no non-U.S. checks or money orders accepted unless drawn directly on a U.S. bank.
