OK, so looks as though we've got definites of: You, Me, Tea, Jenks, Crackerjack, Octopus, Ripley, Cuthbert, Dibble, Grub. D84 is a possible. Plus Nomad, Zhao and PeterGunn have contributed to the thread without saying whether or not they are in.
That's definitely enough to do it anyway. Can we get a "sticky" and leave it up for a few days for people to sign up? How do we do that? Then after a few days we'll know who is in and we can all vote on the book.
