go buy this, now and in the future...

justin.barrett is back, fuckers, and apparently has poems bursting grossly forth from his thin, wiry frame into the world, like a pickleworm of literature, covered in buttons like you wouldn't believe.

go H E R E to j.b's blog and find out more.

and you can now officially order Hosho McCreesh's new book from the good people at sunnyoutside; go H E R E and do it or you will be sad. R E A D the sample poem. you will be appropriately crushed.

looking forward to the avalanche of new words.

finally, sometime next week you can buy In Gambler's Blood, my new chap from KSE that tells the story of a single poker hand between three metaphorical players. each copy will contain a handpainted pen/ink & watercolor ace of spades, and they all sport a killer cover photograph by cynthia (and she'll update her blog later today I think). I'll post a link when the book is available, but get your pennies ready, they'll go for four bucks each I think (original art for four bucks? that's right)...

UPDATE: I've heard further from the AWESOME folks over at alternating current and looks like I'll be the Pocket Protector poet for July 2009 (more on that later, if we make it thru the elections and the death of the dollar, etc.). thanks to leah and co. for the invite. they've also offered to do a chapbook to satiate all of your cunningham poetry needs in the interim, and again, I'll have more on this as we progress. the title will be A Sound To Drive Away The Coming Darkness. stay tuned...
