The Foliate Head going into second printing--

I've already talked about this with facebook and twitter cohorts, so this may be redundant, but... I shall tell it all over again!

Only this morning I realized that the limited hardcover edition of The Foliate Head had gone out of print. And only just now I found out from Pete and Nicky Crowther that it's going into second printing. It is the first Stanza Press book to have a reprint.

I'm very pleased, and remain grateful for the beautiful art by Clive Hicks-Jenkins and the immaculate design by Andrew Wakelin. I'm also grateful for the generosity of publisher Pete Crowther in trusting us and letting us play with the Stanza Press template and do our very own collaborative thing. In addition, I'm also thankful to Pete for asking me for a manuscript in the first place; when somebody asks to publish a book of poems, it's time to celebrate.

If you desire a first edition (though the second will be just as beautiful), you need to scramble around and grab one before they're all gone. They are more widely available in the UK, but I noticed that there are at least four left at Amazon on this side of the water. Not sure where else in the U. S.

Jollity!

Oh, and please scroll down to find news about book events in August in the Triangle region of North Carolina and in Asheville.

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
