[[File:Finger01.JPG|frame|right]] '''The Finger''', a journal of the arts, literature and culture, enjoyed a brief starburst in the closing quarter of 2005, running to two complete issues. Published by [[CentreHouse Press]], a co-operative, and edited by [[Peter Cowlam]], it featured the work of writers [[Val Hennessy]], [[Allen Saddler]], [[Mari Garcia]], [[Jack Degree]], [[Richard Hillesley]], [[Bob Mann]], [[Brian Poilly]], [[Robert Vint]], [[Jo Larsen]], and [[Sam Richards]]. Its radical ethos reflected itself as a print broadsheet (quite apart from its content), at a time when most other broadsheets were either resizing or had already resized as tabloids. Its spiritual home was Totnes, in the South Hams (UK) – focus of all things alternative – where most of its contributing authors lived and worked. [http://www.centrehousepress.co.uk/thefinger/issue1.pdf Issue 1] was noted for its lead article, ‘The need to know’, by social activist Robert Vint, a forensic examination of UK government security policy. Initial publication/distribution was dependent on the financial support of private individuals – in particular Jack Kendrick – which couldn’t be sustained. ‘The Moving Finger writes: and, having writ, / Moves on...’ Its two and a half issues are archived here: [http://www.centrehousepress.co.uk/thefinger/issue1.pdf Issue 1], [http://www.centrehousepress.co.uk/thefinger/issue2.pdf Issue 2], [http://www.centrehousepress.co.uk/thefinger/issue3.pdf Issue 3] ==External Links== * [http://www.centrehousepress.co.uk CentreHouse Press] * [http://www.petercowlam.info Peter Cowlam] * [http://www.allensaddler.co.uk Allen Saddler] [[Category:Publications|The Finger]]
