Poets, readers, friends,
It's been a good year, and it seems like only yesterday that we were awaiting the first of our Bagley Wright Lecture Series books; or listening to poems on a boat gliding the canals of Tampa; or paging through incredible drawings of Etheridge Knight; or delighting in Philip Lamantia's letters of conscientious objection to war; or taking a ferry across the sound to a wonderland of typewriters; or talking a mile a minute at bookfairs in Seattle, Brooklyn, and Portland; or carefully balancing a little papercraft amid the cacti.
That last one literally was yesterday. And everything that card says is true: we are having a HOLIDAY SALE. To celebrate the year. ALL TITLES are 30% OFF, with FREE SHIPPING in the US.
Head over to our holiday collection
(hint: it's all the books) and the discount should be applied automatically. Or simply plug in "ANDOTHERPOEMS
" when you check out.
The sale will run until the end of the year.
Our October books have just arrived! Now in Seattle—and moving around the rest of the world—is Philip Lamantia's selected prose, Preserving Fire, and two new collections of poetry: XoeteoX, by Edwin Torres, and Something for Everybody, by Anselm Berrigan. These books will officially publish on October 9th, and from now until then we'll have them on sale, 33% off paperbacks and 20% hardcovers. Just follow the links for any of them that pique your interest and find them already discounted.

Head to any of these titles and find them already discounted, 33% off paperbacks, 20% off the one hardcover. These books will officially publish on September 4th, and we'll run this sale until then.

If you are like us, you usually have a few books going at the same time, especially during the summer. For the next couple of weeks, we thought we’d encourage this kind of reading with a sale we are calling The Pairs. Below you’ll find some precision selections, arranged as duos. Visit the sale collection (or go to any of the individual books below), and use the code "The Pairs" at checkout to get 40% off (shipping in the US via media mail is always FREE).
You don’t have to buy and read these books together, but we certainly think you should. Regardless of what you do, we’ll keep these discounts going until July 4th.
