New out from if p then q is Encyclops. by seekers of lice

40 pp
£4.00

About the book
A version of Encyclops. was handwritten on 142 paper bags with photographs and drawings. This work was exhibited at news of the world gallery, Deptford, London, November-December 2013. In this print version published by if p then q writing (encyclopedic bugs) is presented alphabetically. There is a sense of the style of Gertrude Stein of Tender Buttons & eroticism, perhaps a theme yet also a method used to intuit. Images and ideas are immediately in view then drift out again, just as fast, leaving the reader to return to the poem without knowing whether the experience is being repeated. It’s good good stuff.

About the author
seekers of lice is an artist and writer. Recent works include THEATRE OF OBJECTS 2012 (VerySmallKitchen) and Limber 2013 (The Knives, Forks and Spoons Press).

P. Inman Written 1976-2013

Written_cover_final

Inman’s Written 1976-2013 is published today by Manchester publisher if p then q. The book is available for £20 and good postage rates are available both in the UK, USA and other locations.

The volume offers an incredible introduction and reappraisal of the work of one of the twentieth and twenty first century’s most outstanding poets. It includes the collections: Platin, Ocker, Uneven Development, Think of One, Red Shift, Criss Cross, Vel, at. least., amounts. to., Ad Finitum and Per Se in ‘final’ versions, as well as a number of other previously uncollected poems.

The volume also includes a sumptuous, lengthy essay by Craig Dworkin covering Inman’s career to date.

Without a doubt it is essential reading.

This is what Michael Golston has to say about the collection:

The collected P. Inman! It’s about time—and a lot of other words—many of which have never been seen or heard before. Inman’s half-century project of the complete dérèglement de tous la langue marks one of the endpoints of the great arc of American poetry, where the bow bends all the way to touch the ground. You’ll find a pot of linguistic gold there: Written is writing written at the limits of written writing. Accompanied by Craig Dworkin’s fantastic introductory essay, this book is sure to become a classic in the ongoing history of the avant-garde.
