wonderfully faithful readers! The results of our recent survey on
whether to charge for Bikwil are in, counted and applauded, and
your response has encouraged me to the following decision.
including the next issue (No. 13, May 1999), there will a $5 charge
for a year’s worth of Bikwil, i.e. six issues. To guarantee
your subscription, fill in the enclosed form and return it together
with your cheque. I need them no later than Friday, 9 April 1999,
please. If you require occasional extra copies of an issue (for
bragging purposes, say), the cost will be $1 for each, payable as
complimentary comments were several suggesting that a higher
subscription charge was justified. Thank you, but let’s leave that
idea for the GST era, eh?
remarks, culled and edited from your replies, are:
subscribe for 2 copies.”
not conduct another survey to see if readers will pay more than $5, so
as to offer commissioned contributors a nominal fee?”
about a regular crossword?”
does ‘Bikwil’ mean anyway?”
popular culture stuff, please.”
