Wunderbar! Find Us on Amazon DE!!

Stories for Sendai can now be purchased from Amazon Germany! Can't believe it's still not available from Amazon UK. The only copy they have available through some third party store costs a crazy £28.45! Daylight robbery! :(

J.C. couldn't wait for it to get to Amazon UK, and has purchased 10 copies from the German store. She'll be flogging them to friends and family!

Still time to send us your receipt to be entered into our prize draw! See COMPETITIONS for more details.
