I included below a post Sean Schoonmaker sent out a couple months ago

it's in the archives, I know, but that means more searching, and heck, I
just happened to have saved the msg myself in one of my few easy-to-find

Brigade will ship overseas. I have ordered from them once or twice.
However, you do need a SFSFW(US) membership...

How to get one??

Please find details below on the SFSFW which is currently entering its
sixth year. This year we have finally come up with a system to allow US
gamers to pay in US funds...


The Society of Fantasy and Science Fiction Wargamers is an independent
international organisation with members on all continents of the world.
Now thanks to the efforts of one of our US members we are now able to
offer gamers in North America the chance to join the Society without
having to go through the hassle of obtaining international money orders
in pounds sterling, now we can handle ordinary checks in US dollars.

Jed Docherty will now collect North American subscriptions and transfer
them to the SFSFW en masse, cutting down on currency conversion costs
and reducing the cost of subscription in North America to the same price
as Europe.

If you wish to join the Society please print off the subscription form
below and post it to Jed at the address shown along with your check.
Your membership will then be processed in England as normal and your
Society membership details etc sent to you by the Membership Secretary.

If you have any questions concerning membership you can either email Jed

or the membership secretary on:

If you mail either, please put "SFSFW" in your header...
