Published on 18th June 1988, by IBM Hursley, this small book is just 30 pages long. I used it as partial inspiration for my own short booklet. Even though I’ve had it in my office for nearly half my life I’d not scanned it for SBs until today. I found quite a few: sb. – abbreviation for substantive, Somborne Braishfield and Sue Bit – skipping bigrams, small blue Austin A30, small box of 30 matches, some braille, semi breves, some binary digits, seven beads per rod of an abacus, a silk bobbin, speeding ban.
Herb Miller lives in Rowlands Castle with his wife and two cats. He's been collecting SBs for nearly half his lifetime. If you ask him why he’ll say Simply Because. His favourites to date are the short but sweet, palindromic sub bus, the sulphurous brewmasters Googlewhack and of course, seriously bonkers, simply brilliant and silly B. He fully expects his short booklet to become a shortlisted bestseller.
