Featured readers:

Martin Cooper was commissioned a long time ago to produce news items for The Two Ronnies. He still holds the record for the smallest royalty ever paid to a BBC writer (9p, shared with a colleague). Nowadays he lives and works in Dorset.

Donald Gardner lives in Amsterdam and is a well-known reader of his poetry. His latest collection is The Glittering Sea (Hearing Eye, 2006) and his previous collection is How To Get the Most Out Of Your Jetlag (Ye Olde Font Shoppe, 2001).

Matthew Licht's series of stories The Moose Show, is published by Salt and was nominated for this year's Frank O'Connor Prize. His latest short film, Odessa Tarzan, is scheduled to have its London premiere sometime soon, at an undisclosed location.
