Oh so very much
Let me draw y'r attention to two publications of note and of interest:
Torpedo 4 & Open Letters (Jan. 2009)----
Torpedo, from Melbourne, Australia, has this to say about itself:
"Commemorating the 25th anniversary of his untimely death, Volume 4 is a tribute issue to Richard Brautigan. Fiction from 40 writers, a nifty envelope containing 8 full colour double-sided pieces of art based on Brautigan's novels, an intro by Brautigan's daughter Ianthe, an outro by Radiohead illustrator Stanley Donwood and a cover by L.A.'s Kristian Olson."
the Jan. Open Letters is devoted to poetry, and there are a few essays of note, but I also want to point out that there's some terrific original art in this issue, especially the charcoal of Jack Spicer----
(+ there's poetry, too, in abundance, including translation by friends of flim Elisa Gabbert & Kathleen Rooney...)
