Tinfish Thanksgiving Sale

Tinfish Editor's Blog brings you a brief commercial break before regular blogging continues--tomorrow.

Give more than thanks for wonderful books from Tinfish Press! Buy one or both of our sales packages as presents for friends at Christmas, or for yourself right now! A good way to experience some of the strengths of experimental poetry (and some prose) from the Pacific, while supporting the future of small press poetry. We have two offers:

--The 2009 package:

Living Pidgin
, by Lee Tonouchi: a second edition of our 2002 collection of essays and poems in Pidgin by Da Pidgin Guerrilla, Hawai`i's foremost agitator for da kine nonstandard English.

Jammed Transmission
, by Paul Naylor, with introduction by Norman Fischer: the latest in our sublist of Buddhist-inflected books, a conversation between a contemporary California poet and a 13th century Japanese Buddhist writer.

Tinfish 19: lovingly and laboriously made issue #19 includes work about Hawai`i's TheBus, landlords, the White House, Mao's insides, and much more.

List price for these three is $42. Yours for $30 plus $4 shipping.

--Package #2

Erotics of Geography, by Hazel Smith, with CD-R. Poetry by an English/Australian poet, pedagogue, musician. Performances on cd are not to be missed.

Cribs, by Yunte Huang. Seriously funny collage work by Huang about being Chinese in America. A linguistic romp.

farout_library_software, by Pam Brown & Maged Zaher. A poetic conversation between an important Australian writer and an engineer-poet from Egypt, now living in Seattle. Truly world literature!

List price for three is $41: all three for $30 plus $4 shipping. Go to and click on "purchase."

You can get both packages for $50 plus $5 shipping, as well. We also have back issues of the journal available at a discount—simply inquire at

In coming months, we will be publishing more beautifully designed work by Kaia Sand, Lyz Soto, Daniel Tiffany, Gizelle Gajelonia and others. Your purchase of books now means that we will more easily be able to publish more.

Thanks very much,
