A note on the prices: All prices are current as of the
last update of this page. Every so often, publishers change their prices (almost always
upwards) or policies, and Amazon.com in turn changes its prices. Unfortunately,
they don't tell me when that happens. So for that reason, prices on this page may
occasionally be different than the prices on Amazon.com's site. Should you find the price
different than quoted here, please let me know
so I can fix it.
