We are nearly sold out on these, such is the way of short run books on esoteric subjects!
I came cross a copy with a cut fold error on one of the pages, might be worth a premium someday.

Mac,

Top job and top man.

I'm delighted that such a good product has (almost) sold out.

It means we will see further editions of it in years to come.

LN.
