We'd like to dedicate this, our first issue, to the memory of Douglas Oliver, the featured reader on this disc, who died in the spring of 2000. Thanks to Anselm Berrigan for lending us his recordings of Douglas and to Alice Notley for giving us permission to use them.

We are sorry to note that Gil Ott passed away during the preparation of this CD, but we feel fortunate to be able to share his voice with you. Our condolences to his wife Julia, and daughter, Willa.

We'd like to thank everyone who helped make the CD possible, especially Buck Downs, kari edwards, Susan Maynard, Bill Corbett, George Logan at In the Night Studios, Molly at Molly's Bookstore in Philly for letting us hold a fundraiser, Frank Sherlock who let us hold a fundraiser at his La Tazza Poetry series, and to all the people who sent us subscriptions ahead of time.

If you would like to have your work considered for an upcoming issue, please send a recording on an audio CD or standard cassette tape to:
