I'd just like to say what a pleasure it is to catalogue your titles—you publish the most interesting communications. It'd be unfair to pick favourites but I am especially fond of the music titles, and the World Oral Literature Series. I think this is such a valuable series because some of the topics covered are incredibly specialised and yet it is so important to document the languages and literatures of those cultures which are not found readily represented elsewhere. Your publishing model supports the ideal type of carrier for embedding other electronic media such as sound recordings, videoed interviews, etc... I just love it!
