Lots of action here recently. What with
the mind-blowing Jandek funk-riff performance in Houston,
and then the mind-blowing evening of Alvin Lucier music from the Austin New Music Co-op,
and then the recently released KSE chaps (Misti’s ODD YEARS, Brad’s DOG NIGHTS, DOG DAYS, Doug’s KNOX COUNTY, and my own THIS DAY WITHOUT and STEREO ACTION),
and then finishing up the editing with Ronald Baatz on his HEADLIGHTS FROM THE OTHERSIDE OF THE WORLD (which will be out in May),
and then getting back to the final touches on Aleathia Drehmer’s June chap CIRCLES,
and then getting some future projects featuring MK Chavez and Luis Cuauhtemoc Berriozabal and Jim D. Deuchars agreed-upon and placed in the release schedule,
and then getting things together for my own next poetry project (another spiritual meditation along the lines of the ones I did on the Tibetan Book of the Dead and the Mandukya Upanishad, although the verse form here may well be in the tradition of 44 HARMONIES or STEREO ACTION…then again it may not!),
and then psyching myself up for my reading in Austin on April 26th,
and then psyching myself up for an important wedding in Houston on May 2nd,
and then psyching myself up for the Jandek/MV&EE concert in Houston on May 3rd,
and finally psyching myself up for my trip back East in late May.

Send a check (or well-concealed cash) made payable to Bill Shute, 14080 Nacogdoches Rd. #350, San Antonio, Texas, 78247. OR chapbooks are available to overseas readers DIRECT FROM KSE postpaid outside of North America for only $5 each. Overseas orders should write and request a paypal invoice for whatever you’d like.
I’ve upped the print run on the recent chaps as we’ve gotten some new distribution outlets and I’ve been doing some more trading with other small presses and we’ve broken into some new audiences recently. Also, ACRES has turned out to be quite successful, so we’ve gone into a second printing on that and will keep it available throughout the Spring-Summer. I’ll also do a special edition of ACRES to distribute at my Austin reading, so if you don’t have ACRES and you attend the Austin reading, come up afterwards and I’ll give you a free copy of the “AIPF” edition of ACRES, sure to be a rarity (cough, cough) in future years! 🙂
As always, thanks for your friendship and your support for our work.
