    Found a poem entitled "Murder" in NYQ 47 1992 but it is different from the "Murder" listed as being in that issue. Not sure if this one is collected or not.

    Ham on Rye on ABE cult list

    Looks like Ham on Rye is on "cult book list"---their definition of "cult" however seems a bit odd to me since I'm not sure I'd include many of these on that list....

    Robert Duncan Martinized

    I'm reading a book on the poet Robert Duncan by Patrick O'Leary and apparently there was a serious altercation with Martin. Black Sparrow was going to publish a book of Duncan's but the book was never published. I wondered why this happened. One source of the disagreement may have been the...

I'll bet the editor of OntheBus Jack Grapes was working from an earlier manuscript submission, because note what has been removed from the Bone Palace Ballet version. Do we have a...
