3 new PAP titles are set for release in 2020 : Glitchasemics by Marco Giovenale; Code Poems 2010-2019 by Francesco Aprile; and Hei Kuu by Michael Jacobson!

The first title of the year to be published by Post-Asemic Press is Glitchasemics by Marco Giovenale. It is a work with an explanatory title, and a full color presentation of Marco's signature glitched asemic drawriting.  The final details of the book are near completion. It also has a wonderful 22 page introduction from the great scholar and glitch artist Michael Betancourt. More details about Glitchasemics will be coming soon. Expect it to be published in late spring of 2020.

Next up for release is the computer poetry book Code Poems 2010 - 2019 by Francesco Aprile. It's a work of computer code presented as poetry. Francesco best explains his book here: "these texts are written only as poetry, not as programs. Some may work as programs, but they need other code. I used: css, laravel (it's a php-based framework), some log errors of Katalon Studio, maven associated with Katalon Studio, Groovy." Look for Code Poems 2010 - 2019 to be published in late summer of 2020.

In late fall of 2020, PAP will release Michael Jacobson's autobiographical collection of of senryu poems Hei Kuu. 'Hei Kuu', means "Hello Moon" in Suomi (Finnish) and is a play on haiku. The book contains 401-senryu, quasi-haiku, ribald-punk, experimental-illness, schizo-affective, lunatic-lunar, computer-telepathic, anarchic-autobiographic, poem-stories behind Michael's wild western asemic writing life.  Here is a blurb from the back cover: "An autobiography of splinters." —Tim Gaze
