At times readers send us material we are unable to fit into the magazine. We've had some of these materials-primarily lists-for some time, and decided it would be a good idea to share them.
What we're planning to do is to make copies of them available to those readers who wish to write for them. We will be charging only .10? a copy per page plus postage to cover our cost. We encourage any of you who have materials to exchange with others to send them to us, and we'll add them to our list. (Be sure that copyrights are cleared where necessary.)
Here is what we have in our files right now. All prices are postpaid.
