    Title: Dribble
    Sub-title: A Poem
    By (author): Jacob Smullyan
    ISBN10-13: 0986144533 : 9780986144530
    Jacob Smullyan's Dribble, a cycle of 144 poems written in 1983, sets itself the task of exploring a peculiar, seemingly unpromising corner of poetic space. Its apparent subject matter is the grotesque obscenity of physicality: excrement, innards, foodstuffs, the reek of loss and sexuality, the pancake-like weight of words and representation. But what emerges is quite different from what its monstrous image repertoire might suggest: an extended meditation on the inner forces of creation and destruction. "Dribble"'s surreal mechanisms, by which the derangement of sense becomes ordinary, reveals new paths through experience, and in this new world, discredited matter, impelled by a powerful transcendental yearning, takes on new meaning and form; soul arises from the mire with cathartic impact and an unexpected tenderness.

    Title: In Memoriam Einstein
    Sub-title: The Einstein Centennial Symposium at the Institute for Advanced Study, March 14–18 1979
    By (author): Roy Lisker
    ISBN10-13: 0986144592 : 9780986144592
    By a singular ruse, the author of this account obtained entrance to the most exclusive party in the scientific world of the 20th century: The Einstein Centennial Symposium at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey, on 14-18 March 1979. Admission was denied to all but a hand-picked group of celebrities: Nobel Prize winners, surviving members of Einstein's family, renowned Einstein scholars and historians, and journalists. Unbeknownst to the organisers of the event, Mr Lisker turned out to be the only journalist present with the scientific competence to cover the entirety of this unique event. The result is a gripping and fascinating story that is both informed and humane, scientifically credible and politically aware.
    About The Author:
    Roy Lisker was born in 1938. In 1954 he entered the University of Pennsylvania to study mathematics. Within two years he discovered that the call of arts and letters was stronger. He began writing fiction and non-fiction in 1958, returning to the University of Pennsylvania in 1962. He has been published in the United States, France, England, Canada, and Ireland. He has worked in fiction, science writing, math and physics research, criticism and journalism. Since 1980, he has been the author and editor of several privately subscribed newsletters, culminating in 1985 with Ferment, which existed for twenty years as a paper publication before going online as Ferment Magazine.

    Title: Mixed Bag
    Sub-title: Jokes, Riddles, Puzzles & Memorabilia
    By (author): Raymond Smullyan
    ISBN10-13: 0986144576 : 9780986144578
    Of all of Raymond Smullyan's many books, this perhaps best captures the timeless delight of the casual conversation of this American polymath. A seamless continuum of jokes, stories, puzzles, and reflections, caught in an deliciously unpremeditated arc that nonetheless is remarkably cohesive, it is sparkling and charming proof that cheerfulness need not be incompatible with intelligence, nor pleasure with wisdom.
    About The Author:
    "Raymond Smullyan, born 1919 in Far Rockaway, New York, is a mathematician, concert pianist, magician, and author of numerous books of logic puzzles, chess puzzles, mathematics, philosophy and memoir."

    Title: The Yalta Stunts
    By (author): Alvin Krinst
    ISBN10-13: 0986144525 : 9780986144523
    "The Yalta Stunts", one of the most perfect, charming, and enigmatic works of the always mysterious 20th century underground poet Alvin Krinst, has circulated in hand–printed editions of uneven quality for decades since its first clandestine publication in 1963. Commissioned for the 1945 Yalta Conference and first performed there by Stalin, Churchill, and Roosevelt themselves, these stunningly original Stunts are not merely important precursors of the artistic revolution of the 1960s, but potent poetic and political statements in their own right. This reader's edition, based on the definitive 1993 revision of Emily MacGregor's pioneering 1989 variorum edition, and updated to incorporate the results of the latest scholarship, is the first to make available the full, unexpurgated text of this work, with carefully reproduced illustrations, to the general public. We hope this is the first step in bringing to public attention not only a dazzling masterwork by an unjustly neglected literary figure, but a crucial episode in the creation of the post–World War II world order that has almost been effaced, one cannot but suspect willfully, from the historical record.
    About The Author:
    "Eccentric underground poet Alvin Krinst (1917- ?) was born in West Orange, New Jersey, but has spent much of his life in France, Italy, Iceland, Senegal and Ecuador. Krinst is responsible for a remarkably large body of avant–garde poetry, fiction, performance art, dance, music and theater, which he has allowed to be privately distributed among a rarified circle of friends and admirers. Many of his works, which he often simply left behind him on his travels, trusting in their eventual discovery, are as a result lost in whole or in part. His known works include The Jazz Age Of Haroun Al Rashid (dance), Gigfy (poetry), a landmark translation of Dante's Inferno, the novel NO SMOKING, and the plays Much Thumping About Sumping and Dudley The Frog Of Pendmorton."

    Title: Too-Brief Chronicle of Judah Lowe
    By (author): Christopher Carter Sanderson
    ISBN10-13: 0986144541 : 9780986144547
    The formal playfulness of Christopher Carter Sanderson's novel is visually apparent at a glance. It consists of two parts, each composed of a series of short fragments. The first part, 79/79/'79, has 79 titled sections of 79 words each, and is set in 1979. The second, @1000thenovel, is set in 1980, and consists of roughly 1000 tweets of 140 characters each; the story also has 140 characters. The book is far more, however, than a formalist game. It is a deeply affecting Bildungsroman in which an adolescent explores many different windows into himself and his emerging world, and where the unity and plurality of experience are vividly encountered together. It's a masterful experiment in the best sense, and a deeply affecting story.
    About The Author:
    Christopher Carter Sanderson is the author of several play adaptations, including the adapted works of Tucker Max, I Hope They Serve Beer On Broadway, and a one-act version of Alfred Jarry's UBU IS KING! His scholarly work, Gorilla Theatre, is published by Routledge. , and others have all critiqued his work since 1994. Mr. Sanderson is a dropout from Princeton High School, a Fulbright scholar, a graduate of programs at New York University and Yale University (where he is an associate fellow of Calhoun College), and a professor at the State University of New York, Oswego. He is married to Meredith Kadet Sanderson, and co-parent to Charlie, a rescued Jack Russell Terrier.
    Reviews:
    "A persuasive rendering of the aimlessness, corruption and squalor of adolescent life in America. Sanderson’s Judah Lowe powerfully reminds us that opportunity and privilege are no substitute for a viable path to one’s own redemption.” -- Yoram Hazony, author of "The Philosophy of Hebrew Scripture"
    “An unusual bildungsroman that mostly transcends the limitations of its formats.” -- Kirkus
    “A Proust in Princeton." -- Matthew Gasda, author of "Moon on Water"
    “Fascinating! The best ever hyper-reality depiction of a certain type of high school experience experienced by those who grow up to write Twitter novels.” -- Anne Kadet, Wall Street Journal

    Title: Voice Lessons
    By (author): John Tynan
    ISBN10-13: 0986144509 : 9780986144509
    The voice of poet John Tynan has a natural beauty all its own that is both an innate gift and a moral, as well as technical, achievement: fresh, unspoiled, casual and yet artful, never dry or contrived, always freely flowing, and of a sensibility so kind, humorous, and radically open to experience in its immediacy and depth, that it seems an inseparable, innate part of the poet's character; and yet, again and again, in his reflections, in his lyricism, the burden of experience and memory is acknowledged and overcome by a rededication of self to love and life. If there is a lesson in these Lessons for his readers, it may be that spontaneity and immediate joy constitute not merely a state of being, but a creative act of becoming.
    About The Author:
    John Tynan received his MFA in creative writing from the University of Arizona in 1997. In addition to writing poems and stories, he also composes songs and plays the accordion. He currently lives in Beijing, China, where his wife Rene Gutel is a diplomat for the U.S. Department of State, and makes his living as a web developer.
    Reviews:
    “Nothing could stop my heart from enjoying these memories and dreams.” -- Carol Hogan, President, Arizona State Poetry Society
    “Written in the key of insight, Voice Lessons is a medley of wit and revelation—its pitch, perfect for the soul.” -- Rich Kenney, Poet & Assistant Professor of Social Work at Chadron State College, Chadron, Nebraska
    “Voice Lessons refines our appreciation for the beauty that redeems impermanence. From childhood homes and grandparents to beloved dachshund companions, Tynan reminds us that nothing outlasts its own song. But his compass always points to the love behind the voice, so his tangible lyricism never gets lost in nostalgia. Throughout this debut collection, Tynan displays a knack for finding melody in the echoes of discarded things. With the flair of Hawaiian shirts and the Morse code of chirping crickets, the filament of discovery radiates on every page.” -- Shawnte Orion, author of "The Existentialist Cookbook"
