Sometimes I think that's true, Mark. Aside from
Leary's book, and some papers by Brian Price, there's
very little literature out there about composition,
and certainly none written to try and make things
accessible to the ignorant yet technically-minded

Would anyone be willing to author papers on the
subject, or put any of their techniques on the web for
others to use? This can only help ringing develop.

Just think, if we get enough papers together we can
hold a ringing theory conference, and drink ourselves
