Perhaps more that than those of you Stateside, I have a problem finding out about new books in English. At the same time, I have (along the rest of you) seen the kind of commercial junk that finds its way into our mail boxes because of subscribing to these lists. I can say that, in the case in question, the book is from Benjamins and I didn't know about it already, and was interested in hearing about it, so if someone is tabbing the votes, I vote "yea". (Is that spelled write?)
