Small Presses: Eye on Japan

Among the Japan-related small presses covered by Japan Times writer Kris Kosaka (an extraordinary playwright herself) in this article in the paper's culture section today is Isobar Press. Isobar further specializes in poetry, and counts among its recent publications Royall Tyler's A Great Valley Under the Stars, Andrew Fitzsimon's A Fire in the Head, and my own The Insomniac's Weather Report.

For those of you in Tokyo, please join Isobar Press founder Paul Rossiter and many Isobar poets at a reading on Friday, June 6th, a celebration to launch a number of new Isobar books. I'll be there and would love to see you. Here are the details:

The launch of the second four Isobar Press books will be from 6–9 p.m. on Friday 6th of June in room 403/404 on the fourth floor of International House of Japan in Roppongi.

Royall Tyler will read from A Great Valley Under the Stars; Andrew Fitzsimons and Nobuaki Tochigi will give a bilingual reading of A Fire in the Head; Jessica Goodfellow will read from The Insomniac's Weather Report; and Paul Rossiter will introduce and read from Whispers, Sympathies, and Apparitions: Selected Poems of David Silverstein.

Also, don't forget the following limited-time offer: the first 20 people who order a signed copy of The Insomniac's Weather Report directly from me will pay nothing for postage, worldwide!  There are still some copies left for this limited-time offer, so contact me right away!

Finally, other presses discussed in Kosaka's article include Stone Bridge Press, Chin Music Press, Bento Books, and Kurodahan Press.
