Space Encounters Reviews

The Space Encounters series (three books, published by Saeculum University Press in the early 200s, printed in Romania) displays the experimental "computer PK" process I discovered in the 1990s in Belgium. I reveled in the experiment and my books showcased the printouts made spontaneously, which differed from the screen. The images were scanned and scotch taped onto film paper for the Space Encounters series, as they broke the "mirror" of a normal book and had to be hand placed. All three volume...

Nick Storm, the filmmaker who is doing a documentary on the Louisville Beat poet Ron Whitehead, took some time off, before the Gonzo Fest, to read Keep This Quiet. And set up a lovely image with his filmmaking gifts. How about this? Then to top that off, he reviewed it three different places - on B & N, on Amazon, and on Good Reads. I'm experiencing firsthand how people love Hunter. Many of them feel something for him in a profound way, as a writer and also as what he modeled and dared. Cli...

$68 – $108

In its short little life, Keep This Quiet is having some drama. It started properly on preorder with B & N - high discount - went live for a day, then back to preorder. Meanwhile, Amazon had rather bizarre information about its delivery time, then went live, then back to preorder. I understand why Amazon is having trouble getting the information, and that will be straighted out this week or (latest) Monday. However, meanwhile, some review copies were put up for sale; the used ones sold, an...

And Then Again

I started to call this post "Don't Even Believe It When You See It." For whatever reason Keep This Quiet, which was live two days ago - ahead of the pub date - now reverted to preorder. I predict that by mid-week it will be live on Amazon - still ahead of the pub date - with a competitive discount. And then B & N will go live - keeping its heavily discounted preorder price. Not to belabor the issue, but it was a surprise. Meanwhile, I read Ron Whitehead's  Tribute to Hunter, which is more...

Review of “Keep This Quiet”

What more beautiful birthday present could a person get? Check out this review on http://hstbooks.org. Not knowing that it was the eve  of my birthday, Marty Flynn sent me the link yesterday. And that was among several surprises. He called it his humble  opinion - beautiful indeed. The book is also just up on Amazon for preorder, as on B & N (32% discount there). I'm sure Amazon will go down in price as well, but at the moment it hasn't a clue about the distribution, so it's got a listin...
