Michael Mann

A couple issues of unarmed for me to redistribute: number 61 & number 59 (sans chapbook)

My mission is to get these into Pages on Kensington here in Calgary which I intend to do, but I think I might wait til after the Christmas Rush (maybe at the next flywheel?)

In the mean time I'd be willing to let one or two of them go to anyone who'd care to pick up the postage!
