Links to Other Societies/Sites of Interest

Below is a list of links to take you to the sites devoted to EJO & other authors, or e-mail contacts for their Societies, and to sites relating to associated subjects or book collecting. I have included links to web sites, but left you to copy the e-mail addresses into a 'To:' box yourselves, so that they cannot be picked up by web-crawlers.
 
The first three listings are contact information for the Australian, New Zealand, and South African EJO Societies.
 
I no longer show subscription rates for other Societies, as these may have changed, so do contact the people listed below for the latest information. Any information in italics has not yet been confirmed with the sources; I have tried to contact them but as yet received no reply. Once the information is verified it will appear in normal type.
