    Our friend Bill Chapman, an Esperantist since the age of 16, sadly passed away peacefully on Thursday, May 21 2020. Bill had been battling cancer, with his usual cheer and optimism, over the past year. Unfortunately, despite steps to isolate him, Bill contracted Covid-19 and was taken to hospital, where he left us, although not before telling the nursing staff all about Esperanto, true to form! It isn't possible to do justice to Bill in a notification like this one. Rest assured that there will be more about Bill in the next issue of La Brita Esperantisto. Much as many of us would dearly like to salute Bill, I'm afraid that lockdown restrictions limiting public gatherings and entry into Wales mean that it is very unlikely that we will have the opportunity to. If the situation changes, I will post an update. Bill's family have nominated two charities which meant something to Bill, should anybody wish to make a donation in his memory. They are: Citizens Advice Bangor, which offers free, independent and confidential advice that helps people with legal and financial worries, and of which Bill was a trustee; Awyr Las Gogledd Cymru - Blue Sky North Wales, an NHS Charity that supports the specific hospital wards, departments or community healthcare services which the NHS in North Wales cannot provide. Nia amiko Bill Chapman, kiu esperantistiĝis nur 16-jara, bedaŭrinde forpasis pace ĵaudon la 21-an de majo 2020. Dum unu jaro li bataladis kanceron, kun siaj kutimaj gajeco kaj optimismemo. Malgraŭ granda kloplodado izoligi lin, Bill bedaŭrinde enhospitaliĝis pro KOVIM-19. Plena nekrolojo aperos en La Brita Esperantisto. Pro la pandemio, ŝajnas neeble, ke eksterfamilianoj povos partopreni la funebraĵojn. Se la situacio ŝanĝiĝos, mi diskonigos la informojn. La familio de Bill elektis du bonfarajn asociojn al kiuj oni povus mondonaci memore al Bill. Tiuj estas: Citizens Advice Bangor (Konsila servo por civitanoj en la urbo Bangor), kiu proponas senpagajn, sendependajn kaj konfidencajn konsilojn al homoj kun zorgoj leĝaj kaj financaj, kaj de kiu Bill estis kuratoro. Awyr Las Gogledd Cymru - Blue Sky North Wales, bonfaraĵo de la nacia sanservo, kiu subtenas precipe la hospitalajn sekciojn kaj sanservojn en la komunumo, kiujn la NHS (Nacia sanservo) en Norda Kimrujo ne povas provizi.

    We're delighted to announce that EAB has revised and republished Mil Unuaj Vortoj en Esperanto (First Thousand Words in Esperanto), and it is available in our shop for only £5! This new version replaces some older vocabulary items (eg audio cassette, video) with newer ones, the appearance of computers and televisions has modernised, and some of the translations have changed from those used in earlier versions. We chose a clear, distinctive font which is reminiscent of a child's handwriting and calculated to be easy for young children to read. If you've got the second version (with the red cover), then you will immediately recognise the cover design; we chose to honour the previous version rather than simply translating the text on the very different English cover. At only five pounds, a steep discount from the retail price of £8, the book is a bargain for children and adult learners alike!

    We're delighted to announce that our latest publishing project is Spaco sur la balail', a translation by Ian Carter of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's Room on the Broom into Esperanto! We had hoped to launch the book at our conference in April. Unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic has led to our cancelling the conference and to delays in the book reaching us. We can't currently be sure of the exact delivery date but we fulfill our pre-orders as soon as we take receipt of the stock. The book costs only £5. If you're from the UK, please note that you can include another 1.8kg of books in the package before the postage bracket rises (currently £3.10 for up to 2kg), so you might wish to take advantage by ordering some more books, which we'll despatch alongside it. Our Twitter account shows several books which are new in stock 🙂

    EAB kreis konton ĉe SoundCloud, al kiu ni alŝutas sondosierojn de prelegoj el la pasinteco. La prezentojn surbendigis Ivor Hueting. Nove ciferecigitaj, ili nun estas disponeblaj al ĉiuj. La unua prezento alŝutita estas de nia honora prezidanto, John Wells, de la Universala Kongreso de 1989 en Brajtono. La temo estas enketo pri prononcaj preferoj de anglalingvanoj, informoj utilaj por la tiam eldonota prononcvortaro Longman Pronunciation Dictionary. Ĉu seka unua temo? Tute ne! Temas pri proksimume unu horon da flue elparolita Esperanto. Ne gravas ĉu vi estas nova lernanto, ĉu vi konas ĉiun vorton de La Espero: estas en ĝi io por ĉiuj. Ni aldonos baldaŭ kontribuaĵojn de Ivo Lapenna, Marjorie Boulton, kaj William Auld, por listigi nur kelkajn, kaj esperas, ke vi ĝuos, kio alvenos!

    We're delighted to announce that EAB has published an Esperanto version of The Gruffalo, a world-famous story for children young and not-so-young which has sold over 14 million copies worldwide! As the exclusive world provider of La Krubalo, as he's known in Esperanto, you won't be able to get hold of a copy from anywhere before we send them out. We'll be doing this on December 2nd, so feel free to pre-order now at the special price of £5 (RRP = £7) to get your hands on a copy at the start of December. We're not imposing limits on sales, so if you want to save Santa Claus the trouble of thinking of presents for members in your family, but as many copies as you want! Please feel free to share La Krubalo's site on social media. This is a great chance to show Esperanto to the world!

    The courses Jen Nia Mondo 1 & 2 were published in the 1970s and remain fairly popular even now. Accompanying the courses were recordings of fluent speakers. Those recordings are hard to come by so EAB is making them, fifty tracks in total, freely downloadable.
