    I&#39;ve known of John Bradley for quite a number of years, and we&#39;ve become friendly acquaintances during the past couple of years. I like his poetry, also a couple of anthologies he&#39;s compiled.

    I know John&#39;s work (and agree with you about it) but have never met him. I think! There&#39;s a vague memory from way back around a poetry conference Ray Gonzalez put together in Denver back in … damn, the early 80s?

    Bill Tremblay is a good friend of my good friend and great poet John Bradley. They have collaborated on some things before. Do you know John Bradley, Joe and Ed? One of the authentically, obscenely underrated poets in America.
