Australia, New Zealand, and other Commonwealth countries (like La Belle Province, K) are normally covered for book marketing purposes by English publishers; theoretically, if there is a UK edition even theoretically available, then US editions are not allowed to be sold there -- though this is a practice that's breaking down, however illegally, and specialist book stores especially will often have stocks of US editions especially if UK ones are out of print.

If this isn't clear, it's because I'm suffering from a classic hard-boiled noirish head cold in a US edition. Right at this moment, I'm wishing there were a law to prevent dentists from San Diego with heavy head colds from sitting next to me in airplanes.
