monster interview with adam robinson of publishing genius. some great behind-the-curtains glimpses into the jones/pg/penguin journey. if anyone can recommend a good source of information regarding copyrights and lit ownership, please pass it my way...

this weekend i'll be knocking out the covers to jack boettcher's The Deviants. they're the best covers i've ever done. hand stamped magic! this sumemr has been a bit slower then i'd anticipated especially with us moving into a new place and all. so i apologize for behind the sched.

all will be well!

hitting the rainy streets

attn folks in the seattle/pacific northwest region: you can now grab yourself some Greying Ghost chapbooks at Pilot Books! niiiice!

also, we've gotten some great lines for our Let's Make A Story project. if you can string along a few words into a sentence, send it in and we'll post em. you don't have to be a big fancy writer-type. any and everyone can help!

deep thoughts while waiting for ink to dry.

i am a firm believer in reincarnation. most likely in a previous life, i died at a Who concert. i suspect the Isle of Wight show from 1970. this would explain the uncanny false-flashbacks i get when they show their Isle of Wight performance on the tv. either that, or i made jumpsuits or floral shirts with tassles for a living in a previous life.

if only the ad wizards could've gotten their hands on the spanish civil war!

between this, and this, i now believe people in the advertising industry have a real good sense of humor.

all submissions to The Corduroy Mtn. have been printed out, read, and separated into various piles. so far, this is shaping up to be mammoth! lots of new faces, old friends, varied writing, tons of stuff on the edge... still haven't quite narrowed down a final cast of characters as a few things are still on the fence. we also haven't contacted folks but ya'll should be hearing something in the next week. thanks for everyone's patience and great great writing.

about 75% done with THE DEVIANTS printing. the covers are gonna look smashing. also started work on terhune's book and am almost finished with the last proof for k.orser's chap. its 90+ degrees in the office. surrounded by corrugated cardboard boxes.

you've never even been to the crunch!

submission window for the second print issue of corduroy mtn has closed. next print will open again after the first of the year. anything submitted august first or later will be for web publication only.

official greying ghost ms reading has been bumped back to september since i'll be moving into a new apartment. tho, if you are so inclined to do so, you can send stuff now. keep in mind it will be a few months for a reply.
