Yesterday's mail brought my first package from the UDP subscription. Very very rad stuff. Gorgeous hand-made books and chapbooks.

1. O New York by Trey Sager
2. placefullness by Karen Weiser
3. The Blue Notebook by Daniil Kharms
4. Novelty Act by Maureen Thorson

Octopus was lucky enough to score some Daniil Kharms translations for issue #5. I've already torn through this one. It's top notch. Oh man.

And I'm really excited about Novelty Act too. I'm not too familiar with Maureen Thorson but I am going to make it a point to be. The 4 or 5 poems that I've read so far are pretty tight. And I was lucky enough to get a signed copy. I got 41 of 50!

Speaking of Maureen, she's this week's featured poet at No Tell Motel (www.notellmotel.org).

Glad you're liking it so far! To be honest, I'm still kind of amazed that UDP liked it enough to publish it!
