There's a few Doomers in this one:

http://stores.lulu.com/therighteyeddeer

"Scratching at Cardboard: Short Stories and Poetry Selected as the Best of The Whittaker Prize 2008" is the culmination of an 18-week writing competition run by The Write Idea (http://www.helenwhittaker.net/phpBB2). The anthology contains work from 23 fiction writers and 12 poets. There's some amazing work in there!

Great reading ... wonderful Christmas gift.

And the cover design's already getting noticed:

Brilliant cover, and excellent contents (and not just because it includes three of my poems  grin )

Very cool cover!

I see how the cover art relates to the book's title (who can't?), but how was the book's title determined? Is it the title of one of the stories?

The title is one of the prompts that was provided during the 18-week writing competition (Round 7). Oddly enough, not one of the participating authors wrote a piece using that title!

Congratulations for looks like a collector's item. Yes, the cover is brilliant, my fingers itch to feel it even if it isn't actually 3D.

You all deserve sales to soar.
