Reality Street will be be going on the road - well, on the train to London - for three days next week.

First, next Tuesday (13 November) to the Lamb Inn in Lamb's Conduit Street, London WC1, the site of the Blue Bus series of poetry readings, to launch The Alchemist's Mind, Reality Street's anthology of narrative prose writing by poets edited by David Miller. Readers will be David himself, together with Paul Buck, Brian Marley, Stephen Watts and MJ Weller. It begins at 7.30 for 8pm in the upper room.

Then on Friday 16 and Saturday 17 November, Reality Street will be at the annual Small Publishers Fair at the Conway Hall, Red Lion Square, London WC1. This year I'll be sharing a stand with Allen Fisher's Spanner/Aloes Books. I'm sad to hear that Martin Rogers of RGAP, who has organised the Fair for a number of years, is very unwell and unable to take part, but others have rallied round and it will go ahead as usual.

The Fair is open to the public from 11am-7pm each day, and at 4pm Reality Street will be launching The Alchemist's Mind again, this time with Robert Sheppard, Johan de Wit and Giles Goodland as readers; and also Sean Pemberton will be there to launch his first novel White.

At both these events the new books - The Alchemist's Mind and White - will be on sale at the special launch price of £10 each, which is a total saving of £8.50. And for the duration of the Fair Reality Street books will be on sale at a discount of at least 10%. So come along, talk to me, buy books!

(PS: The session at 4pm on Saturday at the SPF is shared with West House Books, I should have mentioned, and the redoubtable Geraldine Monk will also be reading!)
