Not even launched yet, and a school in New Jersey is ordering 600 copies of our anthology for their students to read next term, and asking for authors to come and speak to the students in the autumn.

One school. ONE.

The issues in this anthology are fundamental to our world. Our ONE WORLD.

I am delighted that New Internationalist are publishing us. I support their ethos, and it is a privilege to join their publications.
I think we've got a winner. A real winner.

All royalties are going to Medecins Sans Frontieres. (Doctors Without Borders if you are in the US.)

Magnificent!! All power to you all, that is stunning, this is definitely a real winner. I will have to find a reviewer who doesn't know any of you... a tough one!

This looks so good. I am really looking forward to reading it.

I am blown sideways by this. When you are in the middle of working on something, and it is right on the desk, you lose sight of just how amazing it is.

I will look forward to seeing the reviews on The Short Review... yes, quite a challenge, so many writers, from so many places. Hard to find someone who doesnt know a single person there!

Thanks for looking....

Hi Sara

Utterly brilliant! Can't wait to see it. Knowing the budget mess American schools are in, that's some coup.

Golly. Thanks Susie. makes it even more special. The anthology contains work that transcents boundaries of all kinds. National, religious, race, colour, educational, class.

We've got an increangly beleagured world to live in thanks to us and our petty spats over the above. best learn to pull together before it's too late, I reckon.
