Fall, Small Presses, and Limited Editions

Hi all,

The move went well (Tracy and I bought a house last month) and the unpacking seems endless, but books are starting to find their way back to their shelves (albeit slowly). And as they do, it feels more and more like home. North Carolina weather is slowly giving way to fall and our new yard has plenty of trees to enjoy once the colors begin to change. Lots of trees also means lots of birds, which our cat is truly loving.

The fall semester is half way over. Midterms next week and then fall break, when I hope to regroup and start blogging more regularly (but first I have to get through 40 college papers written from the perspective of 19 year old geniuses - something we all claimed to be at one point).

At any rate, to tide you over, I thought I would point you to some of the small press offerings of late:
