The reasons are entirely practical, though not impersonal. OAC here (there is another highly successful and vibrant OAC group on Facebook), has come to the end of what it can reasonably achieve. This website is full up with interesting, but chaotically ordered content and points of contact. It is really a massive hammer to…Continue

Hi, thank you for attention. The publisher wants the address to send the book.
thanks for the greetings, I hope to enjoy in this virtual community.
Thanks for the greeting, Huon. Hello to you too. I hope to contribute to the Joanna Overing discussion in due course... and once I've worked out how to navigate this somewhat confusing site. Alan Passes
Thank you for your kind note - and for coming to Bergen. I sure learned a lot in what turned out to be two and a half rather intense days! We'll be in touch. Best, Kathinka
Jean Besson just announced that Barry died. Did you know?
Apologies for the request, which probably seemed rather peculiar. The thing is, I just wanted to ask you a question, and couldn't work out how to send it. Sorry about that. It was just a query about the OAC Press.
I'm looking for a direct email address for you -
