No, it will be WAY too big! I intend for it to be a series of books that match this one, each around 250 to 400 pages. The books will be, while not narratively self-contained, thematically internally-consistent.
The amounts for international shipping are based on the cost of sending the Rice Boy book internationally, which is about what the weight of the Vattu book will be. I wish it wasn't so expensive to send three-pound books to other countries but it is, I'm sorry!!
