For sure, Paul. That's why MR kept the price down (reducing font size
so we could stay within 128 pp-- rather than eg, 160); their selling
price is $14.95 usd, and they have it at 20% discount now. (Amazon's
is more). So, don't forget the student masses! The Indian edition,
which should be out for the Indian Social Forum in November, is
planned for the equivalent of $2usd. And, here, I suspect that
there'll be many copies of the Vzlan edition distributed gratis; I'm
definitely not looking for royalties (and aren't taking any from MR).
[Hint, hint to Brazilian comrades!] That all said, though, the
Chomsky sales phenomenon demonstrates that a little infomercial can't
hurt in informing the masses of its existence.
