CFZ Press is pleased to announce the publication of three new books this week, the first being the CFZ 2008 Yearbook. Here's Jon Downes to explain all: "When I first came up with the idea of the yearbook some thirteen years ago, I always imagined that it would be published either just before or just after Christmas each year, but as the faithful stalwarts who have followed our activities over the years will attest, apart from the first volume (the 1996 YB) which appeared in December 1995, none of the subsequent ones have appeared before April.
"Until now, that is...Wayhay! Not only is the 2008 Yearbook out on time (it actually appeared on the shelves last week, but the tragic events of recent weeks stopped me doing anything about it), but it is pretty damn good."
