Surprise! update for May 2009

Surprise! has a few things going on this month. Let’s see what they are:

It has been reviewed online in several places by:

* Susan and Meredith at Reading Upside Down and
* Adele at Persnickety Snark and
* Nicole at Planning With Kids

Also Miscellaneous Press will be part of The Page Parlour at the Emerging Writers’ Festival (on top of author Karen’s other hosting duties).

What is it, you ask?

The Page Parlour will feature over forty stall holders selling everything from posters to mooks, from zines to literary journals. This is the only place to stock up your bookshelf. This is your chance to get the latest issue of a favourite or discover something completely new; an opportunity to network and meet, to trade, to buy and browse the work of some of Australia’s best zinesters, independent publishers and wordsmiths all together in one atrium.

You won’t find this stuff in Borders, or if you do, it will be somewhere to the back of the magazine stand, on its side behind outdated issues of American political magazines. {Source}
