Note: A few months ago, we advertised Chris Gray’s “Leaving the 20th Century: The Incomplete Works of the Situationist International”. We were assured by the publishers, Free Fall Press, that we could get as many books as we wanted. Since then, we have been unable to contact them in England. We will try to get in touch with them by telephone, but if all fails, we will refund all money owed. Thanks for bearing with us.
