Done. I look forward to reading it.

darren p, fyi the crowdfunder page says "370 pages with a full index". But maybe you meant dimensions, I dunno.

Off the topic of the Nick Heath book ----

In its 2021 catalogue Freedom Press announced:

'What is Anarchist Communism' by Brian Morris

'This short work summarising what you should know about the history, philosophy and background of anarchist communism is a perfect introduction for anyone looking to understand an often misunderstood political movement.'

A publication date of Dec 2021 was given.

Also, in the table of contents to the ACG' Stormy Petrel issue 2, there appears 'What is Anarchist Communism? (excerpt from Brian Morris’s forthcoming book)' .

Who knows of the fate of this book? And are its contents new material, or just republication of things he has written before?

(1) Yes, all new material, not a collection of things that have previously appeared.

(2) Publication date and pages: 'in May or early June we think, around160 pages A6'.

(3) Table of contents:
