Default Villanelles Anthology is on best-seller list

Since so many Spherians are in this anthology, I thought I would mention that it has appeared on the Poetry Foundation's list of poetry anthology best sellers. Congratulations, all!

Cool! Thanks for the information.

By the way, are contributors supposed to be getting any copies, or are we on our own?

Roger, I got a free copy. I assumed that all contributors would, so if you haven't got one, you should probably contact the editors.

Congratulations, all, on the well-deserved publicity. It's a book I'm going to have to get soon. I'd missed the earlier announcement.

It's a terrific book, and I'm proud to know so many people with work in it and pleased to meet so many fine poems that are new to me. It's the only book I've brought along with me on my current family-emergency trip; it packs many pleasures into a small space.

I was especially tickled to come upon Austin Macrae's mowing poem, which I remember being workshopped on Met.

I just discovered this. Thanks for the good news, Susan -- and Roger, do make a fuss and claim your rightful copy!

My only criticism is that the ten pages of acknowledgements at the back are in very tiny print!

It's a really great little book, packed with gems! I love it. Congratulations to everyone who's in it.
