Anyone can use Paypal to pay with a major credit card (no "echeck" payments please). All books are signed by the author. Orders are usually filled within two business days. The book is in stock. Please do not email me to ask if it is still available! This is the complete book signed by the author, not the unsigned "Early Years" or "Final Years" books you may see elsewhere.
BONUS CD: A very limited number of CD's are available with purchase of the book. These CD's were licensed in 2008 and only 1000 were made. They contain the earliest known recordings of Stevie Ray Vaughan: two live tracks from 1969, and two studio tracks from 1970. You will read about these recordings in the book. The bonus CD's were promotional premiums for advance orders of the book in 2008 and the few remaining copies are now being used as premiums to help sell some of the last copies of the book. They are available only with purchase of the book, so please do not ask to buy them separately. In the list of purchase options below, the third option is the book plus bonus CD. The other two options are book only and no CD.
Postal insurance is optional. The books are wrapped
with 1/2" bubble wrap and mailed in USPS Priority Mail boxes. From over 3000 books
have been 3 or 4 reports of cover
corners which were slightly bent or "pushed." A word about
insurance: you are only insuring against significant damage. I am sorry but the post
office will not pay claims for slightly bent corners, particularly when handled
by foreign postal services. UPDATE 5 February 2014: Please note that from
this day forward, your decision not to
buy optional postal insurance waives your basis to claim a refund from Paypal.
This policy is because a buyer, Scott Thomson of Hoboken NJ, who DID NOT buy
postal insurance and whose book sustained superficial damage to the cover during
shipping was able to get a full $60 refund from Paypal on a claim the book was
"not as described." I try to keep costs for fans down by making insurance
optional, largely because the risk is so small. I may soon be changing the
ordering options, thanks to Mr Thomson and Paypal, by raising prices and making
Before you order make sure your Paypal name and shipping address is current because that's where your order is going.
RETURNS: Damaged book returns must be made within 3 days of receipt. If you are in the USA and your book is damaged and you purchased insurance, return the book to me with the original packaging just as it arrived to you. If you are outside the USA and you purchased insurance, return the book and packaging to your local post office to file a claim for damages - do not return it to me.
B. Ordering Other than the Book:
There is no
"order form" because the variety of package destinations, sizes and weights make it
display shipping rates, and because availability of most items can change in minutes. Except for
ordering the new book (see above), email
me to reserve items and for shipping charges. Texas residents must add 8.25% sales
tax. Include the following in your email:
