Interesting. Not that I can use Amazon to buy books (I don't have a credit card
and don't intend to get one ever), so I don't know how I'll do to get the book
(maybe through the American Library that I found in The Hague...).
The book itself looks like the kind of books I just love :) . I'll see if I can
get it somewhere :) .
The site is beautiful, and the Collabyrinth looks extremely interesting :) .
