FOR ORDERS OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES: Rates are crazy, aren’t they? Yeah… sorry ’bout that. I do my best to lower shipping legally and return overcharges, but the system is linked directly to the USPS system which means these rates are what USPS is giving out. Also please take note: we are not responsible for VAT or any other tariffs and taxes your region may levy for you to get your package.

These books have been in storage and are great condition, but they do show the wear of time.

Wail Songs

Wail Songs wasn’t about wailing into the nothingness. They were about filk. They had Cacie Sears, “a member of the Filk community from WAY back”, Spencer Love, and Bob Laurent, the president of Wail Songs.  When we find items put out by Wail Songs, we naturally get a little giddy.

Here is a neat little page about Bob from ye olden days. (Click)
