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.

And What Is Left, As Much AS The Hands Will Hold, & A View Of The Empty Porch
by Andrew Borgstrom
Greying Ghost Press #37
$5.00 | ORDER
Quite possibly one of the best spurts of prose we've ever released. Don't let this pocket-sized chap fool you - its got a bark and a bite that'll stick to you just behind your eyeballs. You'll still see the words long after you've finished reading much like those green spots you see after leering at the sun.
Proof: "The following question, following the previous question or possible response from the possible mother, may have been a statement also. The possible boy may have told the possible mother what he had asked the possible father. The question may have regarded a book. The boy may have asked the father to read a book to him, if books were things in houses with porches. The book in question, in this question, may have had something to do with the holiday in question, the holiday in the previous question." - fr. "And What Is Left..."
4" x 6" Chapbook with ephemera endpapers and either heavy hand-ripped arches paper or deep yellow metallic cover. Book guts printed on high quality 24lb antique laid paper in an edition of 81. Each book is handmade and unique from the next.

Fourteen poems posing as maps to the evening sky. Keep them in your back pocket for those strolls, those journeys, those nights spent atop a picnic table deep in the woods of whatever rural town. Nanostars engulfs the pocket of your denim jeans like steel on flint - the ultimate showcase of wonderment and patience.
