Psyched to get my letter version. Psyched to read; and view the artwork.

I am very interested in reading a taste of the new poetry being written today, as it is an area of my life that has been neglected. My last major "new" poetry acquisition was Father Luke's book. And it rocked the house. I'm sure this will, too.

And thanks in advance for all of your hard work compiling, coordinating, printing, etc.

Sincerest best wishes. For this one and many more...

Pax,

Like I said before; really, black swan is the engine of buk scene 1.
W're already busy with buk scene 2.

Maybe you said somewhere above, but do all copies have that gorgeous color cover, or just the lettered copies? Nice...

The 200 numbered and 26 lettered copies have the color cover.

The 26 special numbered back & white copies, well you know...
but with buk scene 1 in red letters and Gakaku Meat is ivory.

I wish I could read, this looks like such an interesting thread.

Congratulations Ponder and Black Swan.

Got mine today, thanks.

The pictures are nice. ;)

Looks like it is signed and numbered?

Hmmm.
114 pages from cover to cover.

Looks like I am going to have to get someone to
learn me how to read.

Thanks J&J.
I'm proud to be in this.

And thank you, FL!
I'll call you and read you a buk scene lullaby aloud.
And I'll teach you how to count to 112 or pages.
If we count to 114, your poems will appear on the left page ;)

I received my copies today, and well done, well done!

It reminds me of the old ATOM MIND magazine, because there is a lot of work in there, and a lot of good reading. You can't just glance at it and toss it aside. It will not allow for that. It also reminds me of AM because they had a "living poets" series that your Richmond section would have fit right into.

Great work. Ambitious, crazy, impossible, and you pulled it off. Not many can say that, and now you are among them. You should feel proud.

Very happy here, reading the comments. Thank you.

Nice to see you again FL, 'shoulders' was inspiring.

Jan, I am loving Paris but I'll be home soon.

Got mine yesterday but I was at work and busy all evening so I'll look inside today. I did see the covers -- wow. What color! They look great in person.

I feel the same way, but waiting for something good is exciting too! I'm also hoping for Monday or at least Tuesday.

Well done, Jan & Jocelyne!

Well ain't it ironical that our other publishing team around these parts could also go by j&j...those kids at Chance Press!

The universe is speaking. Are you listening?

I do remember you sent me a few poem stories, cunningham.
You said they were written a few hours ago. I could tell,
the ink was still wet. That's what they call; unpublished.
Thanks.



A buk scene reader, he looks like Tom, from myspace,
but it is someone else.

Excellent work, J&J. It's chock full of all sorts of goodies. I'll be reading it a bit at a time and savoring it all - it's good to see a number of familiar names in there. A great start to Purple Glow Press.
