    I reckon I'll get China Mieville's October and Buda's Wagon by Mike Davis (read the intro of that years ago and have been meaning to get a copy since). Anything particularly recommended by others?

    Did you get ebooks? I read journal articles online but for some reason reading a book feels different (my concentration is a bit fucked anyway, maybe that's the issue rather than the format)

    PM Press (US division) have all ebooks for 71p for around next 24 hours (11:59 PST on 31st). Prices read as normal but just add BUCK in the coupon bit at check out. This is particularly handy as it's been impossible to order new books from these since brexit (or subscribe to US journals) as prices near doubled as did postage. There's alos loads of great free books from within same stock - i.e stuff like All Power to the Councils!: A Documentary History of the German Revolution of 1918–1919

    (I know lots of these can be got free elsewhere - but you can show a bit of support for a great publishing venture this way).

    How the eff does Rooum ever get his Wildcat cartoons published and re-published?

    I think it must be because he's really very nice. Which gives me hope I guess.

    Any recommendations on the e-books? I'm looking through them all, so far got a Victor Serge novel I didn't have, and a history of the George Jackson Brigade.

    With Rooum I assumed it was because anarchist writers are plentiful but anarchist cartoonists are not, plus all the hours he has put in over the years.
