We're catching up at forty-two: book review. Check out reviews of a chapbook by Suzanne Frischkorn, Tess of the D’Urbervilles, new novels by Nicole Krauss and Michael Cunningham. And send reviews of your own summer reading, stat. There's a hole to fill.


Ooh, ooh, ooh. So many new things in the noggin for horse less press. It has been a year and we are ready to cast off an old skin and slip into something more comfortable. Hopefully come August we'll have something to show you on the page and in the atmosphere.

Don't forget. Chapbook by Mark Kanak is really really on the way.
Go check him out.

Don't forget. Shadow Fixed The Toilet With An Old Trombone. Refer to earlier for details. You can totally be a host. Email me and say so. I believe in you.

Don't forget. Soon we'll be playing HORSE, live. HORSE, live. Bone up and be ready.
And here's something new to remember: Mythologies. Soon we'll shew them. I can't explain it. But you can help us. If you have stories, reviews, appreciations, raves, pleasant or revelatory things to say about horse less press, horse less review, and any of its productions or faces, please email them to jen AT horselesspress DOT com. They don't have to be true. We will do all the work. We will weave our own history.

horse less reading
and chapbook series

shadow fixed the toilet with an old trombone:
some improvisations

we have been thinking long and hard about how to host a reading tour without actually going anywhere, and this is what we came up with. during the first week of october (2005) we'd like to coordinate a series of readings all over the world (or at least the country) with a united theme:

shadow fixed the toilet with an old trombone:
some improvisations.

that is, writing that somehow involves or speaks to the idea of improvisation.
individual hosts will determine the time, place, shape, parameters, location, etc. of each reading.
they will be in livingrooms, restaurants, laundromats, buses, back stoops, sofa-beds, amphitheatres, planes.
they will be readings for 2 or 200.
some writings will certainly appear on the walls like graffiti or miracles.
some writings will be elaborately choreographed, only-children, in the making for years.
afterwards a chapbook will be compiled that includes a piece of writing from each reading.
with luck there will be other artifacts and remains.

interested in hosting a reading? email jen AT horselesspress DOT com for more details.
interested in attending a reading? check back at horselesspress.com and watch the schedule develop.


I am really hoping to pretty up the old website soon.
In the meantime, take note:

All previously-sold-out chapbooks are now print-on-demand. Check out the chapbooks page for details.
A chapbook from Mark Kanak is coming soon, swear.

We added some new blogs to the list this weekend--browse and enjoy. If you have any journal, blog, or project suggestions for our link pages, please email jen AT horselesspress DOT com.
