The 2015-16 Pirate Radio Annual is now nearly finished and I'm taking advance orders for copies of the book. I've had the CD ready for a while now (although I need to start burning copies). I started laying out the PRA about a month ago, then realized last week that my column margins were too narrow, so I re-set it. Just finished the cover tonight and the files are going to the printer tomorrow. From there, the finished books should be ready in 4-6 weeks.

In case you are wondering what the Pirate Radio Annual is, it's a paperback book with an 5.5" x 8.5" trim size. This is the 6th edition. Each are divided into two parts: the first is pirate radio "articles" and the second part of the book is a listing of entries on North American shortwave pirate stations that were reported in the past year (and also European pirates that were reported in a large portion of North America). The book contains images from dozens of stations + contact information, URLs of websites, etc. Because this year's edition is running long, I cut back on the "articles" in this year's edition . . . WGM: World's Greatest Mistake and the updates for next two Global HF Pirate weekends.

This year's edition is 230 pages (34 pages longer than the last edition) and contains an audio CD-R with sample tracks of audio from pirates from the past year. 92 different stations (up 20 from last year) are represented on the CD....although the recording is on a CD-R, it is an audio CD that can be played in standard CD players, computers, etc. BTW, after creating hundreds of these CDs, I heard from one reader that the CD wouldn't fit properly in his slot-loading Mac computer. If you want to use it in one of these computers or device with a narrow slot, let me know and I can send your CD without a label.
If you want an advance copy, the price until August 7 is $16 + $3 shipping ($19) to the United States. I'm not yet sure if the extra 34 pages will affect the shipping cost to the rest of the world. I should probably wait until the copies arrive so that I can check the shipping cost/weight to Europe/Australia/Canada/etc., rather than guessing and posting an amount that's totally inaccurate, so I appreciate your patience while I get it figured out.

Also, I found a less-expensive printer for this edition. When I was offering advance copies at the Winterfest, I thought it'd be more expensive than it wound up being. So, if you advance ordered at the Winterfest, I'll be returning $1 with your copy.
