i did something very bad, Clay. i took your list and just bought about a half-dozen of these books on amazon. i am that guy. in my defense, if i lived in San Francisco i would have come over and bought them from you.

have you thought about running a sort of "pegasus poetry subscription" series, mailing out books once a month? i would sign up.

I don't know what that Working Group is, but they sure got a lot of treats.

I'll echo what others have said. This is a cryptic post, but via it I discovered, went out and bought (from SPD), and started to read Death Notices. It's a powerful set of poems, so far.
