TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN AND AS FOR HEALTH AND SANITY REASONS –

‹BAD› AND ‹GOOD› NEWS:

Things, programs and plans for 2021 we needed to change fundamentally – as follows:

We have started a lower scale, but still exclusive poetry – chapbook series in the high definition quality – that you are used to from our BUK100 series.

Here is our modified program:

  1. «THE KIND THE PHARAOS TRY» (song lyrics and prose by Steven and Michael D. Meloan – introduced by Matt Dukes Jordan – which is already published, place your order here: https://newington.blue/product/the-kind-the-pharaohs-try/
  2. «FUCK IT» (explicit poetry by Leia John / NYC) – pre-order here: https://newington.blue/product/fuck-it/
  3. «DO NOT BEND» (exclusive poetry by Linnet Phoenix / UK)

– Followed by: «PINBALL WIZARD» – A NOVEL ABOUT LOVE, SEX, JETS AND BUKOWSKI – by @Michael D. Meloan (to be published as trade paperback both in an English and a German edition – translated by Sigune Schnabel )

For the autumn the following
(in no specific order yet):

– «12 Chicago Cabbies»
(streetwise stories by Westley Heine)

– «St. James Infirmary/Googies»
(stories by Steven Meloan)

– Poetry by Monica Mastrantonio

– and a Chapbook honouring Gregory Corso – curated by Leon Horton

Slipping in between will be the downscaled BUK100 issue number 3 with a reprint of ‹PRYING› (poetry by Charles Bukowski / Jack Micheline / Catfish McDaris):
