Any tips on filing (and winning) a case in small claims court in Vancouver?

No written contract, but an email trail that should help a judge get the picture: in July 2011 a guy commissioned me to speak at his public event, for a fee and the purchase of 30 books. I hand-delivered the books and did the appearance, but he won't pay the $1,051 bill. (I thought we were close in November 2011 when he finally blamed "bookkeeping issues" for the delay, which I suppose happens when you have offshore companies in places like Surinam, but alas.)
Anyone been through the small claims court system and learned something I need to know?
