Most manuscripts don't get published because they are too unsophisticated. But there are some which are deemed to be too complex. From his houseboat moored in Victoria's harbour, retired economist G. Leigh Skene has deeply explored the nature of money and the parallels between the stock market crashes of 1929 and October, 1987 in That's the Way the Money Goes (M.K. Wong & Associates, unpriced). "There's no price at the moment," says Skene, "because Wong found out that it costs too much to distribute it commercially." Those who want a copy can write to Skene do General Delivery, Victoria, B.C. V8W 2L9.
