The 2011 Chapbook Festival is this Thursday and Friday and we'll be there selling our books and handing our free pamphlets and saying hello. We'll have the latest books by Kathleen Rooney and Corduroy Mtn and whatever we have left of our back stock. Please keep in mind that on Thursday we might be a little late as we're taking an early bus from Boston so if you see our table is empty, trust us, we'll be there. Stop by and wish us a happy birthday!

It is March of 2011 which means we'll have been open for business for four years! FOUR YEARS! Lordy. It started with Peter Berghoef getting a haircut. From then and up to our latest batch its been such an incredible ride. We've met so many great folks and made so many pals and comrades. Thanks to everyone who has ever bought a book from us. Thanks for all the support. We're still hungry to keep things weird and unique. More than ever. As Charlie would say: "WINNING!"
When we get back we'll be making some alteration to the website. New layout and a new blog. Nothing fancy. Just a sprucing up. We'll also have some great books by Jac Jemc, Sasha Fletcher, Paige Taggart, Garth Graeper, Jordan Davis, and Travis Brown. Not in that order. We have poetry and magic in pour fingertips, bro.
In the meantime, we offer to you for free a digital chapbook by GG Boss, Carl Annarummo. It is called "So Then Let Me Be Forgotten." He doesn't often share with work with ANYBODY so this is a real treat.
Pass it along. Send feedback or suggestions. Print it and leave it on a bus.
More in a bit.

Things are crazy here in the Greying Ghost mansion. We have two (2!) pamphlets waiting to be shipped with every book ya'll order. the first one is a three-piece by Brennen Wysong which will hit you hard enough to warrant an arrest. The second is a poem by Morgan Schuldt called "Becoming Regardless" which we were supposed to put out awhile back but its greatness fried out computer! Like an egg.
This week we are putting the finishing touches on Kathleen Rooney's "After Robinson Has Gone" which (notice the pattern) we were supposed to release last week but I didn't like the covers so I re-did them and damn me if they aren't just the damnedest looking things this side of the Mighty Miss. Both sides, actually. Can't wait to set em out unto the world.
After that we'll have books by Jac Jemc, Sasha Fletcher, Paige Taggart, Garth Graeper, Jordan Davis, Travis Brown, and then on to our 2011-12 crop! There'll also be the next Corduroy Mtn which will be in the form of a box set and will feature fifteen works of incredible poetry and prose by fifteen incredible writers on five folded and assembled pamphlets. More info and a special pre-order sale can be had | HERE.
There'll also be a mini-chapbook of a few poems by me, Carl, called "The Candied Squadron". I'm only printing about 25 of em. Mostly while I wait for things to dry or arrive in the mail or cook.
Today we received our MLP Stamp Stories in the mail, so when you order a book from us, not only do you get a bunch of our pamphlets, but now you'll get stamps by Amber Sparks and Lauren Becker! Hot damn!
Also don't forget to check out the Table X Party Reading at AWP this Friday! Sasha Fletcher, Eric Amling, & B.J. Love will be representing the Ghost. Go hear their words and buy them drinks. Wish I could be there but the 9-5 job is the boss right now. I'll catch up with everyone in NYC in March for the CUNY Chapbook Fest.
