Thank you for a great review!

We'll make the next one even better!

Oh, also 11 women and 13 non-US addresses are included (some are pseudonymous, so you could not tell).

You're welcome, Bora, it was literally my pleasure to review the book.

And thanks for the info on the contributors. I'll update the main post.

THank you.

If one wants to be literal, there are 51 contributors: the poem at the beginning is #51.

Also, a good thing about online publishing is that I can make corrections you suggest for the second printing before the book gets the ISBN number and starts getting sold in bookstores and on amazon.
