What better way to wish an AvGeek HAP YYY holidays than with a book of poems composed entirely out of airport codes. The idea occurred to the author, a lecturer in Literature and Creative Writing at Leeds Beckett University, during a flight to the UK when he noticed that the IATA code for Manchester International Airport is MAN. The realization prompted him to consider how many other airport codes could be counted as words and strung into coherent sentences. Available in both paperback and e-book format.
