Zebulon Lives!

We've created a website, complete with illustrations by the talented artist, Adam Collison, in anticipation of the May 2007 release of THE DROP EDGE OF YONDER, a novel by Rudolph Wurlitzer.

Dennis Cooper had this praise to heap upon the book: "The Drop Edge of Yonder is one of the most purely, deeply thrilling, inspired, and inspiring American novels I've read in many years."

And try this one on for size: "Like the Ancient Mariner, Wurlitzer holds his reader right there by his account." ~ William S. Burroughs.

For a good old fashioned synopsis of THE DROP EDGE OF YONDER, along with quotes from Alan Arkin and Scott Spencer, as well as blurbs about Wurlitzer's previous works from the Village Voice, Thomas Pynchon, and Sam Shephard, head on over to, y'hear?

(Stay tuned for a site for LIFE ON THE LEDGE: Reflections of a New York City Window Cleaner, a memoir by Ivor Hanson, which will feature a short video documentary of Ivor dangling from the ledge...)

Thanks to everyone for coming out to the benefit concert yesterday. There was much rockin done, and a good time was had. I promise I'll have pictures as soon as I find my camera.

On to next weekend: This Saturday, September 16, we'll be showcasing our goods at the Brooklyn Book Festival at Brooklyn Borough Hall from 10-6.

We're super-excited because this will be the first time for people to be able to buy our 2 brand freakin' new titles - Life on the Ledge: Reflections of a New York City Window Cleaner, a memoir by Ivor Hanson; and Vagabond Blues (a finalist for the San Diego Book Award), a novel by Emmanuel Burgin. These books don't hit the streets until December 1, and this will be the only opportunity to get either of them before that date.

You'll also be able to pick up our first title, The Drummer, a novel by Anthony Neil Smith, heralded by Publishers Weekly as "enjoyable...a fun read."

You should be super-excited too because Ivor is going to be at our table signing copies of Life on the Ledge for a couple of fun-soaked hours in the September sun.
