Obtaining Weiqi Tiandi in the West

Velobici: Weiqi Tiandi appears to be available for around $70 plus shipping at [ext] http://www.chinesebookcity.com/product_info.php?products_id=84 or call 416-818-5628. Much better price than either [ext] http://www.eastview.com/ or [ext] http://www.gotoread.com/

tderz: Subscription in Western countries is possible via [ext] eastview.com for a stiff Annual subscription price of $265.00 as of 10 September 2006 (that's factor 300 (!) over simply buying it there if we assume 1$ = 8.3 Yuan (¥, 人民币) [ext] RMB, Renminbi, and one copy at 4.80 ¥. You could as well have a friend mail it to you once in a while (...wait...) by snail-mail and invite him/her for dining out several times a year.
The information given on that website is wrong, the frequency has doubled. Hence, I assume that they do not mail at present inspite that the site reports status=active.

115.2 Yuan/year preferential subscription (in China, I guess) via [ext] gotoread.com.

Once I have my own website, I'll upload some non-copyright infringing sample pages w.r.t. course materials given in Weiqi Tiandi.

tealeaf: For UK residents interested in this magazine, there is a bookshop in London named Guanghwa (tel: 0207 437 3737) that is willing to manage a yearly subscription to be posted to a UK address.
