On top of everything else, Kirsty and I are putting together a sampler booklet, containing extracts from the newest issue of Fuselit, Coin Opera, Obakarama and our imminent micro-anthology Pocket Spellbook

This is s'posed to be a sort of introductory thing to get new people interested in what we're doing. The plan is (oh god - me and 'plans') to get it distributed as far and wide as possible, which means the balance between quality and cheapness is a delicate one. We want it to look 'nice', worth keeping, but we also have to run off hundreds of them.

Incidentally, you can now buy Sidekick Books products at The Big Green Bookshop in Wood Green. If you don't know it, it's a wonderful little shop owned by a charismatic pair of gentlemen who really know their stuff. You should all totally buy some poetry books from their poetry section in order to counteract their negative experiences with selling poetry. It's not all Romantics anthologies and Wordsworth - I spied some Caroline Bird when I was there last time.
