For online-only shopping, try the outlets below:

Curating Cambridge – benefits the Scott Polar Research Institute

UK Antarctic Heritage Trust – support conservation of historic sites in the British Antarctic Territory

Indie Novella – buying direct from the publisher gives us the largest profit margin

Litalist – supporting All Good Bookshop, an indie in North London

World of Books – free shipping in the UK, cheap shipping to the US


In the US, we are being sold by Silver Sprocket in San Francisco. They keep selling out and keep ordering more; if you happen on a gap between orders, just click “Notify Me When Available” to reserve a copy from the next one. They also have a few hard copies of The Best Journey in the World.

In New Zealand, the vendor for Worst Journey is the noble and august Antarctic Heritage Trust. Order directly from them, or hook up your local indie bookshop to stock a few copies.

Ireland can get their polar comics fix via Little Deer Comics in Dublin. Order to deliver or collect in person. Presumably they can also supply the rest of the EU …

The German edition from Panini will be released 23 May. This will be full BD-sized and available throughout the EU. It will, of course, be in German (and an excellent translation it is!), but if it’s big pictures you’re after, this is the one to go for.

Conversations are ongoing with publishers in Canada and the US to licence the book; hopefully these areas will get more comprehensive service soon.

Thank you for your enthusiasm!
