A New Edition of The Earth-Boat Sails into View
Some time back Folded Word’s editor asked if the press could issue a second edition of my 2012 chapbook The Earth-Boat, and of course I said yes. Folded Word quite simply does beautiful work, and besides, the reissue gave me the opportunity to make a few revisions that would ordinarily have had to wait for a new full-length collection. The new volume has a new version of the cover art created by my good friend John Ransom, an extraordinary surrealist/abstract painter based in Venice, California. If you missed the original edition, or if you are collecting every scrap of my wordwork (?!?), visit the Folded Word site to pre-order in advance of the Valentine’s Day 2015 release date. A preorder will get you a signed copy and absurdly low $1.00 shipping in the U.S. Either way, you may want to check out the interview I did with the publisher awhile back. No pearls of wisdom, but here and there a cubic zirconia that glitters like the Real Thing.
