THE GOLDEN AGE OF INDIE PUBLISHERS

A great list of indie publishers. Yes. It does seem like a golden age. The big publishers have lost touch, created a vacuum (we know what nature does with vacuums). These publishers are pushing the best shit right now in the English speaking world. There are others that they missed (of course) like Octopus Books/Poor Claudia, Civil Coping Mechanisms, Curbside Splendor (I am sure there are more). But this is a damn good list!!

Matt Cook’s A Spanish Cement Mixer

Less than 24 hours till Spain. Barcelona and Valencia. Then on to Katowice, Poland.

Thinking about traveling and exoticism. Came upon this wee poem by Matt Cook. From his book Proving Nothing to Anyone. Just out from Publishing Genius Press.
