Xerox-duplicated shock poetry underground. Editor Robert W. Howington edits this zine between games of minor league hockey in Texas. Go figure. Poetry by Linda Lerner, Todd Moore, England's Andrew Darlington, and a few others. Gregory N. Coursen is "Homemade Ice Cream Press Poet of the Year" for 1993, and six of his poems are included. Ian A. Woods writes about having a watch stolen in Tangiers, a la Bill Burroughs, while engaged in sex with an Arab boy. W. Bryan Massey III does something entirely disgusting with his dog; the poem aptly demonstrates the absurd lengths of shock poetry. Graphics by Blair Wilson, Dawne, and Pschot. "Psycho Joe," a cartoon by Pcshot, instructs on various mass murder and wholesale destruction techniques. FLAMING ENVELOPE is thin, but each element within is volatile.--Kurt Nimmo
