BY THE HANDICAPPED SIR,--Your readers may be interested to know


I have been asked by a firm of publishers, Geoffrey Chapman Ltd. of London, to prepare a book of essays by physically handicapped people. We want contributions of about 5,000 words apiece, dealing with the real situation of those who are physically disabled, their problems, needs, aspirations. The essays should not be autobiographical, except where incidents may illustrate a point. Contributions should be submitted before December 31, 1964, and should be sent to me at the address below, as should any requests for further information. All entries not in- cluded in the book will be returned to the writers.
