Dear Auditory list members, I have finally shipped copies of my CD to MIT Press. They will be sold both by the Press and myself. Residents of the USA would be better off ordering from the Press, since if the shipment comes from Canada, there is a chance that they may have to pay duty. Residents of other countries may find it equally convenient to order from me, since the duty should be no different and the response time should be quicker: - Al -------------------------------------------------------------- Here is the ordering information: 1.
