A new 'zine devoted to unconventional writing. This issue features poems by Guy R. Beining and Ken Brandon--with illumagery by the authors as as an added attraction. Beining's poems are what I'd call "compound disjunctional," for they combine syntactical unorthodoxy and surrealism; but they include at least one fine traditionally-lyrical passage: "solvent edge of moon on/ blush of lake/ green veins of may in/ chalk of birch." Brandon's poems, on the other hand, are fairly straight-forward, but flirt slightly with surrealism as when, in his first poem he describes how he is dying... himself green & purple.--Bob Grumman
