3 Books by Michael Jacobson: Works & Interviews, Hei Kuu, and Somnolent Game (forthcoming from PAP in 2022)!
I'm hard at work on my 3rd paperback book Somnolent Game due out in spring of 2022 from Post-Asemic Press. Somnolent Game is a novella length prose poem about a video game character who wants to quit violence and find paradise. He is looking for one true story that will set him free from being a shadow of a human. It's also a tale about a sentient being who is trying to be true to himself and find love beyond death.

"There is an art of writing which starts with letters rather than words, and explores ways they can be broken down, distorted and recombined. The letters, symbols and marks I use in my writing are best described as “glyphs”. Between 1998 and approximately 2008, I created many pages of improvised combinations of glyphs, some of them familiar and easily recognizable, and some not. A variety of writing tools were used: pens, pencils, marker pens, Chinese brush with bottled ink, and atomiser spray bottle with ink. Almost always, they were made on ordinary white A4 sized office paper.
The process of reading these glyphs is up to the reader. Regular reading of pages full of words is like walking on a level path with no obstacles, so that most readers travel at full steam ahead to get to the end of each page. In this collection, the idea isn't to read each page quickly and then turn the page. You are invited to ponder, even to find partial meanings or no meaning at all, at whatever speed works for you."
— Tim Gaze
"By inviting us to read and ponder these pages, Tim Gaze is opening the box of a game without rules –a game of communication that uses gestural marks he calls glyphs. Deliberate reading and pondering enables one to contemplate some of our most delicate linguistic issues — without being encumbered by words."
— Rosaire Appel, Author of Zinc Zanc Zunc: An Asemic Conjugation

Here is a gif of sample pages from Marco Giovenales book GLITCHASEMICS released last year in 2020 from Post-Asemic Press. It's a unique cross between asemic writing and glitch art, and It stands alone in the codex format. It was one of the best books published last year. It is definitely a one of a kind writing hybrid experiment and well worth another look at.
But here is looking forward to 2021. There are three new books in the works from PAP: Glyphs of Uncertain Meaning by Tim Gaze, Unwritings by Laura Ortiz, and Intimate Hands by Karl Kempton. GOUM and Unwritings are both strait up asemic writing books though in very different styles from one another. Intimate Hands is visual poetry and does play with words and images. There will be more info on these titles coming soon. Look for GOUM to be published in May of 2021. Unwritings will drop in August 2021. Intimate Hands will appear in November of 2021. There will be more information on these titles when the time draws closer to their publishing dates.
Cheers and Happy New Year 2021 from Post-Asemic Press!
