UPDATE #110910

Its been a busy few days here. We've fallen a bit behind schedule but luckily we put our collective weight on the gas pedal and here we go. First off, the big news is that we have a new book out. Office Work by Jackie Clark. "As much a cursory look within as it is an examination of the simplest surroundings throughout. You'll need to read this come monday, come friday, come hell or high water." In other words, its damn excellent collection of twenty-one writings, stylings, and meditations. Books are printed on high quality linen paper on ultra heavy green pilke paper and hand made collage covers. Each cover is different. And! If you take a photo of yourself reading Office Work at work and post it to our facebook wall, you just might will win some free stuff. Judges will determine winner by using the very complex Awesome Algorithm. I'd explain the algorithm if I had a PhD in physics. Or even a Dr. Pepper. Basically, make yours 1,000x better than mine. Shades optional.

Summation: Jackie Clark's Office Work is now for sale. Its an incredible collection. We're excited. You're excited. Lets all celebrate.


Secondly, we have two new pamphlets that are just sitting here waiting to be stuffed into envelopes along any one of their purchased siblings and mailed out to various points along the globe. The first is You Are On Fired, a poem by Brian Foley. A poem so good, if it were a 7" there'd be no side B just two dynamite side A's and you'd keep flipping it for eternity. The second pamphlets is The Sound by Tyler Dorholt. TD sent us some stuff for Corduroy Mtn #3 and pretty much everything he sent made our teeth chatter and our hair stand on end. considering we here are modified IBM Tandy 1000 computers this us really saying something. Both pamphlets are free with purchase of any Greying Ghost chapbook!


Third, starting next year we'll be publishing stuff besides chapbooks. First we'll be throwing our hat in the black and white comics ring. We're accepting submissions as well as asking folks we know and respect. Our goal is to combine the craftsmanship of our chapbooks with our love for early morning xerox fumes. More info here. We'll also be releasing a series called "CIRCLES /// HOLES" which will be small booklets of collage/ephemera stuff by the same art hack who does all the Greying Ghost covers. These booklets will be limited in size, but extremely tall in power, wide of vision, and narrow of purpose. Why does that dude love circles so damn much?


Fourth, we're still working on podcasts. it is down near the bottom of our to-do list, so bear with us. Or bare with us.


Over the next couple of weeks J. Harmon's and K. Rooney's chapbooks hit the printer. The excitement level continues to grow. Thanks again to everyone who has ever bought our books our picked up our pamphlets. Thanks to the authors for letting us work such gifted talent. No, i'm not crying. It's just been raining on my my face.

back to work:::
