"Are you furious in your zen dialectics?"

i don't know many writers, not to mention poets, who could write a phrase like that & get away with it, but laura carter did in


which i'm happy to say is the new ungovernable book

interesting times

now, people. i do not want to be flooded with 50 or 60, or more, page manuscripts. but who else but myself can i blame when i invite (yes, ungovernable press is both by invitation & open submissions) a hyperactive poet, editor, publisher & too many other things to mention. & when he sends something as cool as

solids, or, strike out (a suite)

rob mclennan did get away with it. it's now around for your reading &/or downloading pleasure

known future things include chaps by laura carter, roberto mascaró & tomas ekström not necessarily in that order, that depends how smoothly the translations of roberto & tomas go

it brings me great pleasure to announce that

christopher rizzo's supposed to sound

is the new chapbook from ungovernable press. when i first read this manuscript some three weeks ago at an internet cafe in banja luka i probably made the persons on neighbouring computers think me mad as i read these poems half-aloud to myself. & now, finally, it's out to roam the world, designed by mr. rizzo himself. & while you're at it you might go to the greying ghost press to check out his recent print chap naturalistless

next up will be adam fieled's new beatles album. after that? well, there are submission guidelines

& yes, everything ungovernable will happen on july 9, 2008
