Ok, so it looks like this went out to most people without all the groovy links. So here is is again. And it was meant to be resent the day it went out. Which must be today. Because surely something like this wouldn't sit around undone? Hmm.
We're co-sponsoring a NYC party fundraiser & more! For more: http://www.twodollarradio.com/wrrrrockon.htm
We're doing a bunch of things:
� celebrating Tiptree award-winner Greer Gilman! and what an honor list
� new books (trust us, awesomeness on paper).
� new ebook website. Wait for it? No! Weightlessbooks.com Blind Eye Books are the bestsellers so far, with Holly Black and Poppy Brite (and Joan Aiken!) doing well for Small Beer. We'll be adding Naomi Mitchison's lovely novel Travel Light this week�and a whole new press!
� new issue of the zine (#25). Yowee! At last! The chocolate bars are going out this week�we had to wait for them to arrive. And we are trying not to eat them all before we send them out. But: yum!
� an interview with Chinese science fiction author Zhao Haihong
� blatherings on the Facebooks
� taking part in a groovy auction for Laurie J. Marks's wife
� Jed's for sale! Oops. This sold in between the last newsletter and this: and raised $200+ for Hunger Mountain, very cool!
� Gavin & Kelly can be, er, pitched? Is this going to hurt? Pitch Session: 9PM EST, May 17, 2010
� getting ready for BEA and WisCon.
At the former we have some galleys (Kathe Koja, Karen Lord, more!) and we'll have some books for sale and so on at WisCon. Gavin will be at both, no Kelly or Ursula this year. Jed will be at BEA but then he is off up to Toronto to Bloody Words(!)�something about a Hammet nomination: congrats to him and we'll be hoping he wins!
And, don't forget the Two Dollar Radio pre-BEA Brooklyn parrrrrrrrrrty! (see below)
� We're going for a walk in Boston on June 13. Want to join us? It's a 5K (say 3 miles, oooh) fundraiser for Franciscan Children's Hospital and Gavin & Kelly are (weather-willing) intending to take their daughter Ursula along. We'd love to have your company and/or support!
� and here's Michael on making beer: "Know that when I sat down to brew this beer, it was with the purest of aesthetical intentions in the Small Beer spirit: I strove for a beer that would as closely as possible resemble a bar of 70% raw cacao dark chocolate in liquid form."
And, courtesy of the fab folks at Two Dollar Radio (see their links and get their books down below) here's the party. Come on by!

Admission is a suggested donation of $2-22 at the door, with 100% of those proceeds going directly to Girls Write Now. Japanther and Care Bears on Fire will perform, and Joshua Mohr will emcee the event.
Girls Write Now (GWN), the first and only East Coast nonprofit to combine mentoring and writing instruction within the context of all-girl programming, has, since 1998, helped nearly 3,000 underserved or at-risk girls from NYC�s public high schools develop into the next generation of writers and readers. In recent years, GWN has been profiled in The New York Times and featured on NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams. In November, the organization received a 2009 Coming Up Taller Award from First Lady Michelle Obama and the President�s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, distinguishing Girls Write Now as one of the top 15 after-school arts and humanities programs in the nation.
