In Harms Way

May 2, 2013 by

Listen up, Folks!

She was born in Wyoming, knocked about an awful lot, spent her formative
later youth in Philadelphia, and these days lives in Lille, France. But
what’s really important is that Win Harms writes the most amazingly original
poetry. Real poetry for real people. ‘Poetry you can lean on,’ as Ira Cohen
once said of Patti Smith’s.

Now Win’s first collection, In Harms Way, has been published as a Kindle
edition by Barncott Press.

You can read more about the book, as well as leaf thru a preview (and then of
course order a copy!) right here

Come June, Win’s poems will appear in two Silver Birch Press publications,
the Summer Anthology and a special Bukowski Anthology. Also this year she will have poems in Urban Graffiti and Ol’ Chanty (Chanticleer online).

Yes, folks,

Everything IS Coming Up GREEN!

By which I specifically mean Silver Birch Press’ absolutely magnificent

GREEN ANTHOLOGY

Dedicated to Graham Greene. And edited by Melanie Villines (contributing
editor Joan Jobe Smith), it contains poetry and prose by 72 authors (past
and present) from eight countries on three continents (if you choose to
include England and Wales as part of Europe, that is!). With 11 USA states + D.C. represented.

There are 14 themed sections, ranging from Hues & Flavors, Money, Envy, Love & Marriage, all the way thru to Trees and New Life.

And yes, yours truly is also on board. With 2x poems (“Green My Envy” and
“Clear Queer Green”), plus a condensed version of my long interview with
Jack Micheline. Who is likewise poetically represented. As are Karen Margolis,
Tate Swindell, William Blake, Amy Lowell, Philip K. Dick, and even Henry VIII.

The Green Anthology is available in both print and Kindle editions.

For ordering information and to read more about the Green Anthology go here

And then yeah, buy yourself a copy!

Henry Miller Revisited

February 18, 2012 by

Ahhh,

First comes the book.
Then if you’re lucky the reviews.
Or in some cases, if you’re unlucky.
Or if someone out there has it in for you.
Or worse yet, has it in for the topic of your book.

An example of this last scenario is Frederick Turner’s recent study, in the Icons of America series,
Renegade: Henry Miller and the Making of “Tropic of Cancer.”

No sooner was the book out, than a lady novelist with a pseudo-feminist axe to grind named Jeanette Winterson came along and tried her damnedest to bury it. With fangs bared and claws flailing, she vented her envious spleen not so much on the author but rather on the subject of his well-informed and impeccably researched work. And therefore, if only by inference, took Turner to task simply for daring to write laudingly about such an ‘unworthy person’as Henry Miller.

Dear Friends,

IRA COHEN, who sadly passed away earlier this year, did many wondrous things in his life. (I am borrowing the word ‘wondrous’ from William Levy; he used it with reference to Ira’s works in an essay entitled “The Art of Hate,” which appeared in his book Natural Jewboy, Ins & Outs Press, 1981.) But one of the things Ira definitely did not do was write The Hashish Cookbook. Hence, contrary to popular but terribly misinformed belief, Ira was also not the pseudonymous author Panama Rose. That was instead Ira’s then-girlfriend Rosalind. We’re talking Tangier, Morocco, mid-1960s. Rosalind invented the recipes, Rosalind wrote and designed the book. At Brion Gysin’s suggestion. Meaning that it wasn’t even Ira’s idea. What Ira did do, in New York 1966, was publish the book under his Gnaoua Press imprint and sell it. 10, 000 copies in six weeks. Oh yes, and then over the years usurp authorship credit, by allowing everyone who wasn’t there at the time (and thus knew better) to believe that he was Panama Rose. This ruse, this historical lie, became such a cornerstone of Ira’s personal mythology that practically all the obituaries led with it: in The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Independent, as well as a touch more coyly in the Guardian.

Dear Friends,

I simply cannot resist sending this out. That’s how truly chuffed I am (as the English like to say).

bart plantenga, author of the fantabulously wild-cum-surrealistically inebriated novel Beer Mystic, is progressively penning a profile of each and every one of the 40-odd people/websites/magazines/blogs that are hosting chapters of his book. And now it’s my turn. bart’s piece on me is entitled “Eddie Don’t Do Beer.” And the lad is right. Except for the very occasional witbier or Weißbier (with a slice of lemon added!) on a hot summer’s afternoon, I am nowadays pretty much a gentleman wino.
