Some recent excellent releases include Shute's "Norwich Unveiled", Luis C Berriozabal's "Without Peace" and K M Dersley's "Retrospective Forecasts".

Many thanks to those who answered the call to support A D Winans by purchasing a copy of his broadside. All proceeds from these sales were forwarded to A D. Proceeds from further sales will be sent on also.

Just received a copy of K M Dersley's latest book "Paranoid in Paradise" published by Appliance Books. K M is a previous contributor to Concrete Meat Sheet and this is another chapbook of excellent poetry from one of the UK's finest poets. I am also very honoured to be Featured Poet on K M's website Ragged Edge. Click the link for more info about his work. 

Concrete Meat Sheets 4 - 6 are now done and will be sent out shortly. Look out for them. Many first time contributors and a special issue of Christopher Cunningham poems. He has a new book, "Flowers in the Shadow of the Storm" just out through sunnyoutside press. Follow the link and buy a copy.

CMP was very saddened to hear that A D Winans' apartment was recently burnt out during a fire. A D lost a lot of work, books, letters and other important documents, a lot of which, no doubt, may be irreplaceable. Of course, the fire also resulted in A D having to move out of his apartment and he is currently facing an uphill struggle to find a place to rent. A D is a fine friend of mine and many others involved in the small presses and, in my view, one of the best poets writing today. As a small token, CMP will be donating any profits from future sales of A D's broadside Life In The City directly to AD. Please support a fine poet in buying a copy.

Many thanks - Adrian Manning, Editor.
