    New chapbook, The Insomnia Poems, from Harry Calhoun

    Hi all, I'll keep this brief ... just wanted to let you know that my new chapbook, The Insomnia Poems, is out on Flutter Press. A slim little volume of 16 poems, all about -- you guessed it -- insomnia in one form or another. Nice cover, a blurb on the back that I probably don't deserve, pretty...

    Retreating Aggressively into the Dark - new chapbook from Harry Calhoun

    Thanks much for that, Stavrogin. I think that like most poets, I'm up and down, but I am somewhat proud of this collection. Appreciate the kind words.

    Amen, and ditto. Sorry I stirred things up and for my relative ignorance, obviously

    Retreating Aggressively into the Dark - new chapbook from Harry Calhoun

    OK, I stand properly corrected and chastized. Was not really angry so much as confused, mjp, and esart, sorry if my behavior was "troll-like." And Bill, as you know, I have supported your fine work, including buying a copy of the Winans book just this week. Finally, Hosho, you're right. I sold...

    Retreating Aggressively into the Dark - new chapbook from Harry Calhoun

    Michael, thanks ... seriously ... for the restraint. I know that what I'm saying rattles the cages of many here. But here's the deal. When I heard about this site years ago, from Abel (Cirerita), he told me how passionate everybody was about all things Bukowski. Yet your 'here, of all places"...

    Retreating Aggressively into the Dark - new chapbook from Harry Calhoun

    And I don't believe that I said anything about my writing or how anyone here feels about it. A few of the good people here have bought my stuff and I appreciate that. I think that the thorn in my paw is because of the general attitude toward publishing that I encounter here. I appreciate that...

    Doug's stuff is great. I bought the chapbook today and you can read one of his fine poems in the latest issue of Pig in a Poke magazine. http://piginpoke.com/10-2010dougdraime.html Just a little taste of the good stuff the man brings to us ...

    Retreating Aggressively into the Dark - new chapbook from Harry Calhoun

    Well, as we know, some writers ARE tools, and this publisher uses the submission fee to (a) ensure that she makes a living from the lit-crit biz, and (b) to scare away "writers" who don't have a snowball's chance in hell of getting published. I personally don't have a problem with that. I do...

    Retreating Aggressively into the Dark - new chapbook from Harry Calhoun

    Hi all, My latest is now out, from the fine lady who runs Boston Literary Magazine and Big Table Publishing. Nice-looking book, featuring a cover shot of the painting that currently hangs above the Calhoun mantel! Hope you find it in your hearts to support my work by springing for a copy. If...

    New Calhoun chapbook now out from Propaganda Press!

    Hey Chris, agreed, it's hard to find a press that is a labor of love like Bill's is. He does amazing stuff. The only one that I can think of offhand that compares is Adastra Press, where Gary Metras has been turning out beautiful volumes on high quality stock and hand letterpress for many years...

    New Calhoun chapbook now out from Propaganda Press!

    Very good points, David. I might have mentioned that I pretty much lost my small-press collection in a flood in Key West. That was hard to take, but at least I had my writing backed up on my computer and on floppy disks. Of course, how much that's worth depends on how much you value Harry...

    New Calhoun chapbook now out from Propaganda Press!

    Hey guys, look. No hard feelings and no big deals. To some extent I agree with the "poems about poetry" stuff, but I would say that maybe one or two poems a year of mine fits that description. Look at it this way. I live with my wife and my dog, and inevitably, a lot of my stuff centers around...

    New Calhoun chapbook now out from Propaganda Press!

    Hmmm, just read the posts ... "The oxymoron of small press fame" isn't really about writing poetry, but a commentary on the sad fact that so many of the good poems get trapped in a print run of 200 or so. It would be nice, and no slam to mjp, if somebody actually READ the poem before damning it...

    New Calhoun chapbook now out from Propaganda Press!

    I agree, Hosh, Leah does some great stuff. Cunningham's and yours and Fleming's are my faves, but there are a lot of good ones. And Poesis, you're right, great little collection, a ton of poets under one cover. I think you'll appreciate the one I have in the next issue (#4) ... just to give...

    New Calhoun chapbook now out from Propaganda Press!

    Hey, Leah from Alternating Current has put out a chap of my stuff titled Near daybreak, with a nod to Frost. I'm proud and happy to join Hosho and Chris Cunningham as poets that she has published. At six bucks, the chap is affordable and I'm happy with the way it turned out. You can check it...

While at least for the time being this is an online magazine, we have a great lineup of poetry and fiction and a few essays thrown in for the fun of it. My wife Trina Allen edits the fiction, I...
