a lot of small presses, a lot of slivers of nothing

Small presses making chapbooks are as numerous a leaves in autumn. I have been attempting to focus on, or perhaps just acknowledge some of them. Some of the authors have gone onto greater things. In other cases, the chapbook was the pinnacle of their writing careers. The same has been true of some of the Presses. But I continue the search and love the adventure.

Over the summer I was able to secure a trove of material from Gil Williams who did Bellevue Press for a long time. I haven't written about any of those books yet. I am easily sidetracked (it's called "life"). Will try to do better as the year winds down.
