Semi-Nomadic Anecdotes By Howard Balloch

More > and Jakarta and Prague, and many years in Ottawa, where I was lucky to serve in a number of senior positions, including Deputy Secretary to the Cabinet during the intense period leading up to the Québec referendum on sovereignty in 1995.

Nomadic and Archeological Scriptures By Carlos Martínez Luis
eBook (PDF): $5.00

These “asemic” texts by Carlos Martínez Luis are basically completely “semic”: that is, they communicate to us by means of glyphs that have forms resonant of the human... More > body, of human culture, and of human consciousness and memory. In the second part of this work, frequent use is made of a well-known drawing by Alfred Jarry of Père Ubu as if it were a linguistic glyph presented in a different way on each occasion with differing expressive ends. The Ubu glyph serves to open up a way of communicating with these fascinating texts, of reading and seeing them with a simultaneity which enriches the possibilities of understanding and of the experience of perception. The poet, artist, essayist, scholar, and curator Carlos Martínez Luis has created a work which pullulates with interpretive possibilities, beautiful, and which enhances the capacity of human understanding in a rare and uncommon way. -John M.
