Five times Five

Postby Sean Piper » November 19th, 2001, 9:08 pm

Is there ever likely to be a Five times Five: Australia? And just out of interest, how do you go about selecting contributors for these volumes?

Regards,

Sean Piper

I think the "Five Times Five" series is dormant at the moment. The second volume, from Scotland, didn't sell very well (not many books do, these days). I really don't have a lot of time to work on books, and am trying to spend it on projects that I think will at least break even--and an on projects that are already started and are YEARS late. Am almost finished with "Mr. Jennings Takes it Easy."

This is too bad, because while 5x5 Scotland is good, 5x5 Japan is one of my favorite Kaufman books. They really have a different way of thinking over there (the Japanese Genii issue is one of my favorite since you've taken over, as well).

Still hoping that five French guys will let themselves be published together . .. .

I agree with Bill. Also, the world would surely be a better place if you published a 5 x 5 Canada. How does Kurtz, Sankey, Sanders, Ouellet, Cloutier sound? My pen stands at the ready, Richard. End transmission.

If Cloutier and Ouellet get together, is that
40% of the 5x5 by France book?

Of course, if there ever is a 5x5 by France book, the Flicking Fingers will just take it over.

For David Acer: that sounds exactly like the Canadian issue of Genii that appeared some years ago!

For Richard: Why yes, I suppose it does. And for those readers who may not have said issue, perhaps they might like to order it from your limited supply of back issues. (Suddenly, I feel unclean)

I'm glad to hear you have almost finished the next book in the Jennings Trilogy, I'm just curious is uit another ten years before Mr. Jennings takes it tough will be coming out?
