    "Review by Bob Grumman" The following review is part of Bob Grumman's column in "Small Press Review" (used with Bob's permission, of course!): "Permutoria, a collection of collaborations by K. S. Ernst and Sheila E. Murphy, is out of the same territory as Bennett's Words & Junk. I blurbed it with "Who could give such an enormous range of smashingly interactive fusions of poetry and visual art as this book contains the blurb it deserves? I sure can't." Many of the pieces feature a single (colorful) letter. Each is a delightful design--but also unexpectedly potent semantically, for those susceptible to minimalism. One depicting a semi-transparent P, for instance, situates the P partly on a pink and beige shape on the left, and partly on greens and whites to the right. I immediately spelled it into "pier" (because it struck me as something projecting from a shore) and then "peer." Just one plausible interpretative drift, but the... More > many others possible make a strong case for the ability of letters to be piers, and of art to allow us to peer enthrallingly far beyond the facts of the day-to-day. "Moreover, the one-letter pieces provide a continuingly enriching set of variations both "merely" visual, and linguistic. They add and subtract from all the other pieces in the collection as well, many of them much more complex textually. In short, the collection deserves a much fuller discussion than I have space for here."< Less
