As I mentioned in the thread about Rock Warrior's Way, my brother publishes climbing books and the Women of Climbing Calendar. As a distributor, he also distributes other titles and some DVDs. His website is http://www.sharpendbooks.com/
I am leaving for Korea Sunday. I am bringing back a few things for some folks, and this is a last chance reminder if you would like to order any English books, you can do so RIGHT now and save 30%(by saying you saw it here on KOTR), plus get free delivery to Korea, though you're responsible to hook up with me or pay postage in Korea
. You can pay me in won when you get your stuff, or use your credit card through the website, but be sure to PM me and let my brother know on your order that you are KOTR and get your discount/free delivery. Since it's late, even if you order through the website, PM me so I will be sure to bring the books. Unfortunately, the 2007 calendars have not come (except for a few advance copies).
There are a few items not on the website yet that might interest KOTR folks. The CD audiobook (6 hours unabridged, read by the author) for The Rock Warrior's Way
is available for retail $30. Long Dong Trad Climbs
, by Matt Robertson (you almost have to buy it for the name) is a guidebook to Taiwan's 101 Finest Traditional Rock Climbing Routes, retail $28.
On the website of general interest is a guide for climbing in Northern Thailand, and a "comic book" beginners guide to climbing, Betty and the Silver Spider
, written by Craig Luebben and illustrated by Jeremy Collins. It focuses on the basics, including equipment, terminology, (Western) gym etiquette, saftety, training etc. The Rock Warrior's Way
, discussed on the Samurai thread: http://www.koreaontherocks.com/forum...a-samurai.html
is also available.
Peace everyone and see you soon!
