Thanks. E-mail sent.

 

That said, the newspaper giving an incorrect e-mail address won't promote many sales. 'Tiscalia' my $%£&

Oh dear,
when I contact David it is usually via FB Messenger or by telephone, so I had not looked at his email address. If you have difficulty in making contact via "tiscali" let me know and I can put him in touch with you.

I changed it to "tiscali" and it hasn't bounced back.

I have just received a response from David Strong. Talk about old-school: I was touched.

 

The book has sold out (150 copies), but a second edition s expected next week. Mr Strong will send me one, enclosing a SAE for me to send him a cheque in payment.

 

When was the last time you were able to pay for something AFTER receiving it?

 

Whatever the book's like, I know I'm going to enjoy it!

I don't remember, but I do remember doing it myself once with my little Abadies book.  The chap was a Hussar, though.  Perhaps that's the important thing - a Hussars connection.

eBay purchases? Though one has to click a Pay button on Paypal, the money isn't taken from one's account for some days and one gets an email giving notice of this. So, presumably, there's a chance to squawk that there's something unacceptable about one's purchase.

     Hit and miss- Most E-Bay sellers only send goods after the payment has gone through-If there is a delay of days before your card is dented via Paypal, then usually your item is also en retard   Consumer legislation is a safeguard but the Distance Selling regulations exist to frustrate the unwarranted return of,among other things, books.

"PayPal's New Pay After Delivery Service Twists Its Model. ... The way the service works is that shoppers order the item, select Pay After Delivery during checkout and PayPal immediately pays the retailer. We'll send you a reminder first and then deduct the money from your bank, 14 days after purchase.”

 

I concede that I'm a bit vague about what happens if there's something  wrong with the item one receives. It hasn't happened to me very often, and when it has the vendor has been very obliging (as I have been on a couple of occasions as a vendor myself.

 

No need, I think, for  us to expand on this particular theme any further, as we're going off topic.
