FRESH TROOPS By Jack Cook
Paperback: $9.92
Prints in 3-5 business days
This chapbook falls into two parts. The first consists of nine recent pieces as yet unpublished. The second part consists of the opening section of an early unpublished work, the second volume of my... More > prison narrative, Rags of Time: A Season In Prison (Beacon Press, 1972), written now 35 years ago. I humor myself by thinking of these pieces as fresh troops to send against the Surge, the Bush administration, and the latest war for oil. Fresh troops undeployed until now. I have a great need to throw these lines of words against that war. For I am old now, sick, and, in the fifth year of the Iraqi War, not of sound mind, being uncommonly depressed with stark feelings of impotence. (Perhaps I’m just channeling Democrats). Everything I’ve been able to write and publish these last forty-five years, despite black listing and bad jacketing, has been at root anti-war and it’s all to do again.< Less

I Was a Beatnik for the CIA is a stream-of-consciousness satire of culture and politics in the 1950s, 60s and 70s.< Less
Brits, Beats and Outsiders By Jim Burns
eBook (ePub): $1.38
This third collection of essays and reviews is somewhat different in content to Beats, Bohemians and Intellectuals and Radicals, Beats and Beboppers. Those books were primarily concerned with... More > American writers, whereas this one has a dozen or so pieces looking at aspects of British writing (and art and music) from the 1930s to the 1960s. Some forgotten writers and magazines of the 30s and 40s are dealt with, and several items focus on the 60s, a period often derided as producing a lot of bad poetry. It probably did, but I suspect that's true of any period and the 60s also produced some interesting work and it was a lively time for little magazines and small presses.As the titles of the previous collections indicated, the Beats occupy what might be called a central role, and so it is here. I've included essays on leading lights of the movement, such as Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Allen Ginsberg, but have also written about lesser-known poets like Ray Bremser and Stuart Perkoff< Less
