      There was something else to go in here.... Something about books, or poetry,
      or...? Maybe about not finding Tony Hoagland's collection at the Strand but
      getting the new Dave Gibbons graphic novel. About missing the dates to start
      those tomato seeds. Deadlines that stretch. Or maybe just snow, snow, snow.
      Everywhere we go there are snowdrops and crocuses (although not here, not
      quite yet). Ah well, on, on:

      Perfect Circle reprint

      We'll be going back to press on Sean Stewart's Perfect Circle. If any
      sharp-eyed readers have spotted any misprints or mistakes, please do tell --
      thanks!

      Nice Tattoo
      Want to read more zines but can't tell the mad-in-a-good-way from the
      mad-in-a-not-so-bad-way? Get yourself in some Xerography Debt.
      (Sorry about that horrid sentence.)

      And if you're tempted to start your own press, maybe take a quick look at
      this first:

      More music, please

      Gillian Welch is proving herself to be -- besides an amazing singer, a
      self-publishing entrepreneur, and a great musician -- one of the smartest
      women in pop. She keeps adding more and more downloads to her website. Songs
      are available in Macintosh or Windows and in MP3, AAC, & FLAC). Awesome.
      Power to the people, baby.

      Amazon
      Is this Amazon feature going to change the way people write? (Will it last
      long enough to have any effect? Is it still there?)

      Blasted Rain Taxi. http://www.raintaxi.com I'm too busy to read another damn
      review. But I open the envelope and I love the bright green cover (it's 40
      below in Massachusetts. Reeeally) and then there are all these beautiful
      books I've never heard of! There I go, adding to the library-or-buy list.
      Heh.

      Update: Argh. The Ruminator Review just came in and it, too, it intensely
      readable. Don't these people know we have deadlines??

      Possible logo
      Ok, so we don't have a logo, have never really felt the need for a logo,
      have rejected a couple of ideas, and laughed when we were told we'd
      disappear without one. We're still here, right? You can see this? Is there
      anyo

      Okay, so (reprise). Here's the gig: make us a pretty Small Beer Press logo
      and we'll hide it, ah, put it up somewhere on our site, put up a poll to see
      who likes which one, and maybe at some point even use one. If we do use it
      we'll pay you something (you like chocolate, right?). If we don't, well, you
      had fun, right?

      Free books
      Last month we gave away 5 copies of Carol Emshwillers's CARMEN DOG! Winners
      and the why of it can be found here:
      http://www.lcrw.net/comments/archive/cd.htm

      We're giving more books away and there's only one condition (which we forgot
      last time and in fact is not serious): you must then promise to buy 5 copies
      of all her other books and send them to friends who must then send 5 copies
      to friends. You see where this is going, right? Carol Emshwiller at #1 on
      the pop charts. Or book charts, or something.

      The Mount is now out in a handy wee paperback from Penguin Firebird! Makes a
      great gift for readers 10 and up. Nice review here:

      http://www.powells.com/cgi-bin/biblio?inkey=61-0142403024-0&partner_id=26490

      Carol's new young adult book, Mr. Boots, comes out in July.
      http://www.powells.com/cgi-bin/biblio?inkey=61-0670059684-0&partner_id=26490
      We have one galley (which has a different cover from the actual book,
      ooh!) to give to one lucky reader (apologies to our earlier winners, we have
      to give it to someone else!) who can tell us something interesting about
      horses, Carol Emshwiller, or boots.
