Portables, ETCetera by Robert Messenger: Royal Scrittore
Issue 99 of ETCetera, the journal of the Early Typewriter Collectors' Association, is now available. I have a copy to give away to the first nonsubscriber to request it at email@example.com. [Sorry folks, the copy was claimed 6 minutes after this was posted!] With this issue, Robert Messenger starts a column; here he reviews the latest Chinese portable, the Royal Scrittore.
And there's news about the magazine: after the extra-juicy issue 100, I will be stepping down as editor and ETCetera will move to the very capable hands of Alan Seaver, creator of the Machines of Loving Grace site. Alan is going to continue all the good features of ETCetera, and I'll be helping and contributing as needed.
Visit the ETCetera website for information about the magazine, subscriptions, and some downloadable PDF issues.
