Sigh, I wanted to order the book for here in Brazil, but they only ship to the United States and Canada. Can you ask them about international shipping?

Hello all:
Andre has touched on something I'd daydreamed of -- "Handful of
Spells" translated into other languages! I'd love to do simultaneous
English / ASL readings from it, for example (me and a Deaf buddy.)
But sorry, Andre -- at the moment it exists in written English only.
Gues the pressure's on for me to put the opening chapter into ASL, eh?
Kim from Boston, the novelist
