A copy of Programming Web Services with Perl surprised me yesterday by arriving on my doorstep. I'd forgotten that back in March, Paul Kulchenko (one author of the book's two) had offered me a free copy of it response to a quick thought of mine about a more Unix-like model for filtering web services (something I want to get back to).

Anyway, I've yet to get very much into the book, but a cursory skim tells me that this looks like a great book. Thank you very much for sending me a copy, Paul!
