Fair to Flair, Volume 1, Issue 2, Summer 2011 available for pre-order
We are very, very proud to present the second issue of our quarterly.
The second issue of Fair to Flair Quarterly is all about live experiences. Many of the contributions are heavily emotional, and all are very well written. They evoke a range and depth of experience few realize wrestling can create. Much like the first issue, this new one is both a gift to the wrestling community, and a bridge for non believers. These amazing stories range from the isolated and foreign to the communal and cathartic.

Now, why, you may ask, would one want to pre-order one of these? What incentive could we possibly provide for those willing to pony up early? Well, first off, you will be paying less. While the price on the back of the book says $25, you will only pay $20. The pre-order will last a few weeks, which is as long as you can have it for that price.
The other incentive is that in addition to getting the book for less, you will also receive the digital PDF for free. After the pre-order is over, the digital bundle (PDFs plus friendly digital files for Kobos, Sonys, Kindles, and iPads) will cost $9.99 (CDN).
Our pricing structure is slightly different this time around. North American customers still pay CDN$20 for the pre-order. Starting with this issue, worldwide customers pay EUR$20. The difference in currency helps us maintain a small profit, shipping anywhere in the world.
Really, that much?
The reason this book costs as much as it does is because we want to be able to pay our contributors. Most magazines cover their costs with advertising, filler, and selling your personal information to agencies—all things we’d like to avoid. We can say we’re 100% proud of the work everyone has done, and we’d like to thank them monetarily.
