new chapbooks scheduled for July 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 4:23 pm

We’re in the final editing phase of two new chapbooks of poetry, recently composed especially for KSE, from two fine poets:

KSE #102, SIVA IN RAGS  by A. J. Kaufmann

Mr. Kaufmann is a new addition to the KSE lineup, hailing from Poznan, Poland. Reading his work reminds me of the excitement I felt when I first read Gregory Corso, Lewis MacAdams, or Ted Berrigan 30+ years ago, the blunt-edged kaleidoscopic slash of the lines and the images, the flow like cheap malt liquor, the visionary of the urban wasteland. An exciting new collection.

KSE #103,  GARDEN OF ROCKS by Luis Cuauhtemoc Berriozabal

The fourth KSE chapbook from this Los Angeles-based poetic shaman, one of the most respected voices of today’s small press world. These pieces were composed in May 2008, some of them inspired by Luis’s close study of the work of French symbolist poet Paul Valery. Luis contemplates life, death, love, loss, meaning, and faith in stark, powerful language rooted in the details of everyday life. His previous chaps for KSE are WITHOUT PEACE, KEEPERS OF SILENCE, and most recently NEXT EXIT: SEVEN (with Ronald Baatz). He’s also published the essential book RAW MATERIALS (Pygmy Forest Press), a full-length collection of poetry.

Keep checking the blog for release details. Also, I should have my own new suite of poems, FACE TO FACE (KSE #101), ready sometime in July, so we’ll have three new chaps available then.

However, for now don’t forget you can score copies of THESE gems immediately :


#99,  ALEATHIA DREHMER, thickets of mayapple: letters for edward;

#98, ADRIAN MANNING, wide asleep, fast awake (sound library series, volume 33);

#96, JIM D. DEUCHARS, pieces of eight;

#95,  BILL SHUTE, quartet: improvisations on the mandukya upanishad;

Any 3 chaps for $10 postpaid in the US. Check payable to Bill Shute, 8141-B Pat Booker Rd. #399, San Antonio, Texas, 78233. Outside the US, $5 each postpaid. E-mail your order to django5722 (at) yahoo (dot) com, and we’ll e-mail you a paypal invoice and ship upon receipt of payment. Pretty much EVERY chapbook up through #92 is now sold out, so act now or regret it later. As always, thanks for your interest and your support.
