Subject: Free books on writing

I'm about to give my publisher, Harcourt Brace, addresses to send free

examination copies of the 2 writing books I announced in the recent ADS

newsletter: the basic _Essentials of Writing to the Point_ and the

research-paper book _Research to the Point_ 2d ed. Contrary to everything

else (I think), these focus on essentials, not trivia. Though they are _not_

usage or grammar books, I think they reflect sane attitudes toward language,

and I would be very pleased to get your reactions.

If you'd like to consider them for your teaching and would like copies,

send me a private e-mail message (not bothering ADS-L again).

Thanks - Allan Metcalf
