JMW has an image of his book's cover for the Octopus #8 chapbooks. Consider this a timely tease. They're almost out of the oven. We'll update the Octopus Books site, complete with paypal buttons, sometime soon (as well as the Octopus Magazine site with an online counterpart issue). I'm pretty anxious to spread these things out around the country--hope you dig 'em.
Simon wrote a review of Erica Fiedler's poem in Octopus #7. I'm glad he dug it. It was one of my favs from the issue.
School starts back up tomorrow. I'm not sure I'm ready. I need one more week--just one more.
