Sunday updates - October 10

Randy Brooks sent this:

Modern Haiku Press is pleased to announce the publication of Modern Haiku, Volumes 1-10 (1969-1979) now available in a CD-ROM edition, edited and designed by Randy Brooks.

This archive of the first ten years of Modern Haiku features facsimiles of all pages from Volume 1.1 (winter 1969), through Volume 10.3 (autumn 1979). This CD comprises simple HTML files, so the contents may be read with any Web browser. All pages of each issue, including front and back covers, were scanned from a set of original issues, some of which are in less than perfect condition, so the quality of the images has sometimes suffered somewhat.

The index of authors, prepared by Modern Haiku Editor Charles Trumbull, records, in alphabetical order by author, the contents of the first ten years of the journal. Included are all essays, reviews, regular features, and—most significantly—the full text of every haiku and senryu that were published. Cover graphic design by Modern Haiku Art Director Lidia Rozmus.

Main Street Rag has dropped prices

I just received this in the Main Street Rag newsletter today:

'If you’ve browsed the MSR Online Bookstore, you will notice something: We’ve dropped our prices across the board. It occurred to me that the reason why we set our prices where we do is to accommodate distributors and other bookstores. Since we have been seeing so much more traffic and sales on our own website, it made sense to reward folks for buying directly from Main Street Rag. In most cases, it’s a $10-20% decrease, but I like round numbers, so for the most part that means between one and five dollars per book—about the cost of shipping. We hope our newsletter readers will take the time to peruse the MSR Online Bookstore and see what we’ve done—but you should do so soon. We’re about to completely reconfigure the bookstore pages. '

Ergo, The Nature of Attraction is now on sale on the site for 5 dollars plus shipping under 'new releases'.

I have about 8 personal copies left for sale and am matching my price to theirs, along with dedication and signature. First eight who message me, then get a check to me get them. There will be no reprinting, so this is it. Scott Owens bought a larger stock and has those to sell, too.
