 Oystercatcher Press:    checklist & autumn offer...     The   2008 Oystercatchers cost £4 each, including UK postage. You can pay for 5 and get 6.   Similarly, you can sign up for the next 6 publications for £20.   Or you could engage creatively in an exciting mixture of the two: order say 3 from the back catalogue and receive the next 3 publications as they come out over the coming months. All for £20. You get the idea.   Here are the books:   Peter Hughes,   The Sardine Tree   John Hall, The Weeks Bad Groan   Kelvin Corcoran, What Hit Them   Emily Critchley, Who handles one over the backlash   Peter Riley, Best at Night Alone   Ian Davidson, Familiarity Breeds   Peter Hughes, Physical Geography   David Rushmer, Blanchots Ghost   Maurice Scully, Work                                                                                             
 Carol Watts, When blue light falls     You can order via Paypal on the website                www.oystercatcherpress.com or by post (cheques payable to P. Hughes) :   4 Coastguard Cottages, Old Hunstanton, Norfolk PE36 6EL     Thanks for your support.     Peter

Sorry, Peter, I'm still not getting the offer message--and have no idea why not. Everything else you've sent me has been perfectly clear. Can you send me the offer in email message text? Then it will be easy to forward it to the list. Thanks.

> OK Carol - let's try again with that attachment. (Just planning a reading for Sunday - to an unknown audience: tried n tested stuff, or the new & exploratory? I'm tempted to try out projecting text onto the wall behind me so people can read & listen at the same time. But then working with unfamiliar technology is worse than working with children & animals. Ah, we'll see. It'll be alright on the night!

> Thanks for the update, Peter. There's no rush on my part as I haven't enough poems to fill a teacup yet, but I'm so pleased at your interest. And btw, Rendezvous (Refrain) currently runs to eleven pages so is well within your affordability scale, although you may not want it, of course, and there's still Randolph to consult.

>> Hi Candice 
>> How nice to hear from you! I'm sorry I didn't get back to you re. a notice of your book. It's been a hectic few months & I'm not sure I got the balance right. I didn't realise how much time it would take up growing so much food - & also I may have done too many Oystercatchers in too short  time! But it's been very satisfying - just not left so much time for my own writing/reviewing. 
>> Having said that, I'm looking ahead to next year's Oystercatchers & I'd very much like to do one of yours. Printing costs have gone up & there's a sort of threshold of affordability: 12-16 pp of text is within it. Too much more, & it wouldn't be possible to keep within the £4 price (I don't want to increase the price - not for a while anyway). This is partly because of an offer I announced for a subscription to 6 booklets. 
>> I'll attach the "offer" - maybe you'll be able to think of a friend or 2 who might not resent being sent a copy! & I look forward to seeing your Oystercatcher - full of little pearls - taking shape... 
>> All best,
