THE RUSSELL HOBAN SOME-POASYUM CELEBRATORY BOOK
The unique Russell Hoban Some-Poasyum Celebratory Book is edited by Chris Bell and designed by Elisa Bowman. All participants who registered for the full weekend convention ticket received a complimentary copy of this high-quality 48-page limited-edition collectors' item. A limited number of these booklets are still available to purchase on a first-come, first-served basis at £6 (6GBP) each plus p&p. For details on ordering copies please click here.

Update 26/06/05: Actor Bill Nighy, who played William G in a 2003 BBC Radio adaptation of Turtle Diary by Alison Joseph, was invited to contribute to the booklet but was unfortunately unable to do so. This week he sent us this very nice card (click on small images to see larger versions):
Russell Hoban & Dave Awl Welcome
Liz Calder Russell Hoban and the Six Stacks
Marion Stevenson Bow fiddle rising from the sea
Quentin Blake Aunt Fidget Wonkham-Strong
Olaf Schneider, Linda Whitebread Why we love Russ
Ruthie Bosch The Mouse and His Child / Happy Birthday Russ postcard insert
For more information on the contributors please see their individual links on the Sponsors & Thanks page.
