Supplying books to South Africa is always a problem. Somehow the shipping costs are always outrageously high compared with other places equally far from North America or Europe. On occasion, some merchants offer better arrangements. As of this date, AmaBhulu is available to South Africans from, among other, the following sources:
Typically full price at $29.95 with $11.18 shipping. Total = $41.13 (R435).
Typically discounted to $26.45 with some $13.99 shipping. Total = $40.44 (R428)
AbeBooks : Newly listed
Typically discounted to $22.85 with $9.50 shipping. Total = $32.35 (R342)
The author supports Createspace, because they supported the author when it was really difficult to produce this book. Interested parties should confirm these prices and shipping costs on the websites of the relevant merchants.
Within South Africa itself, Loot.co.za offer it at R508.00. Shipping costs are unclear.
At 3.9lbs with the dimensions of a telephone directory, Amabhulu is large and heavy for a good reason. It took seven years to put together for the same reason. And that reason is completeness, both as regards the content and as regards the evidence supporting that content.
Meanwhile online merchants serving places as far afield as Norway, Poland, Russia, India, and Kuwait are offering the book.
