Pamphlet #6 by Nate Pritts, + More!



In Greying Ghost pamphlet news, Jon Cone's The Cullings and Lydia Copeland's In My Room have all gone out with orders. There are no more left because all of you wonderful folks have lent your support and picked up a bunch of books from us so far this summer! Here's to you! And if you like our pamphlets, or have yet to hold one in your hands, we still have copies of Gregory Sherl's 3 poem pamphlet (to get you (any myself) stoked for his his MLP books!) and... AND!...we have a new one to offer. We have a beautiful 3 poem pamphlet by the terrific Dr. Nate Pritts! They are folded into a triptych with a blue stamped image on the front. These bad boys are free with the purchase of ANY Greying Ghost title! And if you check out our catalog, we have some pretty incredible books at reasonable prices. Any where from $3.00 to $7.00.

Also, the new issue of The Corduroy Mtn. is selling like the hottest of hotcakes. The Mtn. is $7.00 or free with the purchase of two other Greying Ghost books. So theoretically, for under $10.00, you could get two Greying Ghost chapbooks, The Corduroy Mtn., a free Nate Pritts pamphlet, and a bunch of extra ephemera items!
Pardon my French, that's quite a god damned bargain!

Speaking of ephemera, we've added a bunch of new items to the lot! Cleaned out the cubby hole and brought home old stuff i've found in used books at work. Lots of old photos and postcards and comics and even some pages from a 50's dude magazine about headshrinking orgies. Yup. I am giving that away. That's the kind of guy I am. That's how I roll for my clientele.

Up next in the office, we are working on a podcast where we play some of our favorite songs. Some weeks will have a theme others will just be a mishmash. When I can find a decent mic i'll chat with some folks. The name of the podcast is called "35 Minutes Of...." The first podcast will be either be 35 minutes of early Sonic Youth (up to and including Daydream Nation era) or 35 minutes of cover tunes (by the likes of Flaming Lips, Butthole Surfers, etc). Will try and get that up tomorrow night.

In book news, We're taking a bit of a break to catch out breath and then we hit it hard again with J Wahlgren's Credo and Self Help Poems by Sampson Starkweather in August.

"Corduroy Mtn. once again unleashes the beast this time under the cloak of darkness and fog. Wrapped up in a blanket and left on your doorstep after a nine month wait, our second print issue, filled with an array of eclectic luminaries we've come to adore and respect, springs from the basket and attaches itself firmly to your bosom. Will the moon rise? Will the earth give way? Will lava spill on the carpet? Will there be a third issue? We'll never say never.

Up Date


Did everybody have a fantastic 4th? We sure as shit did! Grilled steaks. Outdoor dinner. A few beers. Hanging out with the landlord's and their pups. Fireworks. Making books. Especially Making books.

This summer we've been busy. We'd fallen behind schedule with the move and all. So this summer's been a non-stop joyride through a ton of books. Eric Amling's Nine Live Two-Headed Animals is still hot from the printer's poker. Before that was Sugar Means Yes by Mathias Svalina and Julia Cohen, Our Us & We by J.A. Tyler. Right now we're putting Corduroy Mtn #2 together. The cover is legit. Pages are spitting out of the laserbeast. Next in line will be Credo by Sir J.M. Wahlgren and later books by Sam Starkweather, Jackie Clark, and a quick reprint of Peter Berghoef's News Of The Haircut!

Have you perused our back catalog recently? In the interest of making room for the new books we've lowered the prices on a few older releases. Also, the new Corduroy Mtn will be free for anyone who buys two other Greying Ghost titles! Can I get a hells yes?

What else? Oh. We are also completely out of the Jon Cone "Cullings" pamphlets. The Lydia Copeland pamphlet is likewise running very low. Mostly due to all the folks who've bought books from us the last few months. For those who've rocked our books, we salute you. For those about to, we also salute you. Your support is crucial. Like Crucial Taunt to Wayne Campbell. Or like Garth Algar and red licorice. One of those applies.

Here's a quick list of books that are really close to selling out:


    Naturalistless | 8 left in stock
    Hank Williams | 6 left in stock
    Walden Book | 9 left in stock
    Plesyre Barge | 6 left in stock
    Gorilla Math | 8 left in stock
    No Rainbow | 10 left in stock
    Stands As Mediation | 2 left in stock
    When I Moved To Nevada | 9 left


Lets find these books a home! All orders come with our unique blend of assorted ephemera and a bunch of free pamphlets. The latest one being three poems by Gregory Sherl who's Mud Luscious book I am awaiting patiently. Much like I did for Sasha Fletcher's MLP book. Hot damn. So much be excited for!
