Which version to choose?


We all like the feel of paper books and if that is your preference go for the A5 paperback.  It’s the most popular.  It’s easier to carry and handle and fits in to a briefcase or bag.

If you wish, ask for your copy to be signed by the author at checkout.

Electronic (PDF)

If you have a 10″ tablet or similar, the A5 PDF electronic version is ideal.  It reads well on the 10″ screen, all the links work (if you’re connected to the internet) and you can zoom in on the graphics as much as you like.  You also save the paper, there is no  postage and the electronic version is cheaper.



PayPal is the payment gateway.

Credit cards are accepted and you do not need a PayPal account. 

If you do not have a paypal account, when you reach the PayPal gateway, please select the option to transact without a PayPal account.  We apologise for the rather opaque welcome that PayPal offers.  Thank you for your understanding.

For hard-cover or soft-cover purchases please register at the Astraea Shop and provide a name and shipping address when setting up your account.  Thank you.
