Subject: User Group reminders from Apress

Dear Apress User Group,

It was NOT an April Fool's Day joke: The Apress User Group Puzzler is 
for real.

This May, Apress will, in fact, award a SONY PLAYSTATION PORTABLE to 
one lucky promotion winner! (Please post or forward this announcement to 
spread the word to ALL registered members of the group.)

Through April 30, we're sponsoring a contest that involves creating a 
small crossword puzzle. We'd like you to create a five-up/five-down 
crossword puzzle incorporating ten different Apress and friends of ED 
author last names (author last names may be of any length). By May 27, 2005, 
Apress will notify the chosen winner via e-mail.

You can create clever questions by browsing through both of our 
websites, and For more information and to 
submit your puzzle, visit

A few more reminders:

* Take a look at our updated Online Catalog. You may search for 
existing and forthcoming books on all topics:

* You have until the end of April to take advantage of the Apress 
Expert's Choice Rebate. Buy one book and get $10 back. Buy two books and get 
$20 back. Check it out:

* If your group has a book review program, or would like to start one, 
please let me know. Apress is happy to send free books for reviewing:
