In New Mexico, it's too hot.
I'm at work all the time (instead of having the summer off, like they taught me to expect as a kid!).
So, it's fair to say I'm in something of a rut. Hence the radio silence this past month or so. "If you don't have anything nice to say..." as the old adage goes...
However, the small press ain't in no rut! Happy small press day to my friends over the pond! I love discovering new books, the kind of thing that would never find a handhold in commercial publishing...just great books and voices all around, taking chances with either form and content. So, in that spirit, here are a few recent books and presses I think are worth a look. Only a couple are UK presses...but small presses everywhere need the love!
