Post-Asemic Press now has its own Amazon List and other PAP News!

Click here to view the new list.  I wanted a list specifically for Post-Asemic Press titles, because while the presses main niche is asemic writing, I do in the future plan on publishing other forms of experimental writing. So I decided to make a list that is reflective of this mission. Since the switch to Kindle Direct Publishing has started, I am also going to be re-releasing all PAP titles with new ISBNs so they all have Post-Asemic Press as the imprint instead of Createspace. The next three PAP titles will be coming soon. My book Works & Interviews will be the first title to be re-released, with new cover art. It will be followed by Marilyn R. Rosenberg's FALSE FICTION FRACTURED FACT ALTERED, and an updated edition, with new pages, of Volodymyr Bilyk's intense work Codex Abyssus. A book by Cecil Touchon is also in the works for this winter. Here is the old Amazon asemic writing list, where almost all the asemic writing books on Amazon are collected.

Post-Asemic Press News and new cover art for Works & Interviews by Michael Jacobson

Createspace is closing so I spent the day moving all Post-Asemic Press titles to Kindle Direct Publishing and getting them set up there. KDP is still run by Amazon but the new publishing page is more streamlined and is a cleaner but slightly slower experience. Since it is a new site for the press, I went ahead and made new cover art for my book Works & Interviews.

If you are in Minneapolis, Minnesota USA on September 22nd, from 6 to 7 pm, stop by Boneshaker Books, 2002 23rd Avenue South, in Minneapolis. Jefferson Hansen will be having a book release reading for 100 Hybrids. His book plus all other PAP titles will be available for sale. So stop by and say hello and enjoy poetry from Jeff and other great Minnesota poets. Here is the Facebook event page.

Marilyn R. Rosenberg's book of asemic abstract calligraphy FALSE FICTION FRACTURED FACT ALTERED is still set to come out in early October 2018. We are just waiting on one more blurb.

I am also excited to announce that the great calligrapher, artist, and collage poet Cecil Touchon is going to be doing a book with PAP this late November 2018. The title of the book is still undecided, but we have plenty of material to make a great new book!

In other PAP news, the other day I met with visual poet and architect  Scott Helmes. We are going to do a book together sometime early next year. The book is tentatively titled "Cut-Up Magazine Asemics" until we find a better name. Look for Scott's book to be released in Spring of 2019.

Also in 2019, look for new PAP books by Australia's asemic writing maestro Tim Gaze, and a book of asemic tattoo magick stories by Brazilian artist Renan Rodrigues. PAP is likewise going to be releasing a book of asemic glitch poems by the Italian poet Marco Giovenale. A book by Tom Cassidy aka Musicmaster is also in the works. Volodymyr Bilyk's title Codex Abyssus will also be expanded next year with 30+ pages of new material.

In 2020 PAP will be open for submissions again.
