It has been pointed out to me by “jailhouselawyer” that I spoke hastily in my previous post. Whilst there is a prohibition on prisoners directly being paid for their literary efforts, there is no prohibition on anyone donating money to a prisoner, for any purpose. I didn’t realise! Hope that helps.

  1. Can you set something up? We need to know how much moolah you need and for how long you're going to need it. Then anyone who wants to set up a monthly direct debit (each according to his/her wealthiness) can lob enough at Ben to keep him in books and ink without either over- or undersubscribing.
