APSA order form

We were so looking forward to APSA in New Orleans. Meeting authors. Bourbon Street. Showing our wonderful new books to you. A plate of crawfish étouffée. Debuting two new journals. An earful at Tipitina’s. Oh, well.

Please take a virtual look at the books and journals that would have filled our booth at APSA. Here in our virtual booth our book and journal prices are discounted 30% and the shipping is free, but only until November 2, 2012 and only if you use the promotional code EX2015. Our exhibit order form is in PDF format on the right. Click on any title in the order form to open up the book product page and learn more about the book (some featured titles are listed below).
