Hello, out there from-inside.
Until recently, this is where any pertinent professional info would've been reported, but right now nothing is relevant except a vaccine for the virus and some control over the trialing other current contagion: complicity; outright by intention or via complacency, deadly whether strategically moderate or flat-earth-extreme.
Seeds had been planted though, not anticipating the immediate and determined darkness of the coming seasons:
Last year, Black Sparrow Press offered to publish a collection of word stacks entitled CUTTINGS FROM THE TANGLE that, at the time, were benign nonfiction observations silently scribbled while dog-paddling amidst the roiling populace; sketches of the usual-then that now, in short hindsight, seem to be a time-lapsed discoloring mole, undistracted within its casual decomposition. Many meanings have recently changed suddenly, so carved in bas-relief, pre-rendered, and are therefore unable to be interpreted with the same understanding of what The Moment was, its very definition a mocking betrayal of the fair-weather nature of reality, whatever that can never be.
The publishing date falls (still silent though meant to be read aloud) on December 8, 2020 (with the soundtrack of the risen streets swinging back screaming in response to the predation inherent in the laws of evolution and the myth of Progress), in the beginning of this second winter of surprisingly unsurprising collapse of open reason, moving like a continually dying, frozen disowned ice shelf, that has ever-been a long-time-a-comin' in one way or another of many ways previously unimaginable, the book's pages now a closed time capsule of what was taken for granted in the fog of privileged sleep that continues, merely stirring, seamlessly overlapping from one dream to the next, beneath, above, but not beyond the quick-change disguises of neither fore nor yore so-called "reality").
It (the book, not the "collapse" forever suspended as if in an off-line shopping cart) is available for on-line pre-order through:
A signed & numbered limited edition will also be available, but only @:
Please visit the CUTTINGS FROM THE TANGLE page for details about the different editions.
There's also an email list that will pass on the developing business details of the said collection of images as they commercially appear or not over the upcoming unmasked, yet hooded, day-to-days of both stolen and lost time, speeding by too quickly to wave neither back as a warning nor ahead in ongoing last goodbyes.
Nigh lastly, there will be a virtual book launch December 10 7PM EST hosted by A Cappella Books in Atlanta GA. Click the link herein or go to the events page above in the hereafter menu for the the tasty details.
Thanks for checking in and not checking-out.
