NEW PUBLICATION FROM A.C.R.O.N.Y.M. Publishing IS NOW AVAILABLE!For the past 10 Years, A.C.R.O.N.Y.M. Publishing has been my brainchild and sole outlet for me to distribute my own (and other people’s) writing to the world around me. In that time I’ve produced almost 40 publications and litterally 1000’s of pages of the written word. While it never occured to me that I’d be doing something like this when I started, about a year ago I resolved to collect samples of my writing from these publications in an attemnpt to paint a textual picture of my particular artistic vision.

And now it’s done!

A.C.R.O.N.Y.M. I.t.’s. N.o.t. J.u.s.t. A. W.o.r.d. A.n.y.m.o.r. 10-Year Anniversary Retrospective! (March, 1993 — March, 2003) is now available! Covering my writing from the last 10 years and spanning all of my own ‘zines, what quickly began as a “sampler” of my writing is now a nearly 200 page book containing biographical information, photos, cover galleries, and writing from other sources as well. (Some of which has never seen print in any publication… ever!) The first print run is complete and is limited to 100 copies (each copy is numbered), so now is the perfect time to place an order.

I am currently in the process of setting up a page all about the publication on the web-page (and hopefully I’ll be able to set up a pay-pal account by then), but in the meantime checks, money-orders and cash are (and always have been) accepted. This book is retailing for $10 (add $4 for shipping since this book is pretty heavy… it weighs over 16 ounces… if you’re outside the US the shipping will be more, in which case you should contact me via e-mail and I can get shipping estimates based on where you’re from, etc.). While this is quite a lot more than the single dollar each previous ‘zine has gone for, keep in mind you’re paying for nearly 10 years of material clocking in a just under 200 pages of text (on 8 1/2″ x 11″ pages, no less!). What we ask for in cost we more than make up for in content. Please allow at least 1 week to get orders out to people, considering that I’m printing, collating, folding, stapling & (if necessary) shipping every order myself. These things take time.

Feel free to contact me with any questions you have, and spread the word! I appreciate everything everyone has done for me in the last 10 years, and one of the biggest has been the word of mouth and kind words people have had for me in the past. It’s that kind of attitude that makes me want to loose money on a project like this more often.

Keep your eyes peeled for more A.C.R.O.N.Y.M. news this summer… big things are afoot!

End Transmission.
