Calamari Press is pleased to announce the publication of Ever by Blake Butler. To read blurbs, excerpts and watch the trailers, go to:

While Calamari Press won't have a table at AWP this year, Blake Butler, Peter Markus, Robert Lopez and a host of others will be reading at Quickies in Chicago on Feb 12. Blake will also be around at the No Colony table with copies of Ever on hand. The official book launch party will be on March 5 in Brooklyn at Word Books, where Blake will be reading with Robert Lopez and Gary Lutz. For more information about these upcoming events, see the Calamari Press homepage.

In other news, the online Sleepingfish N series is almost complete, with works posted so far by James Reich, J.A Tyler, Kim Parko, Shane Jones, Justin Dobbs, Mathias Svalina, Uche Peter Umez, Ravi Mangla, Fortunato Salazar, Jimmy Chen, Andrew Zornoza and Brian Beise, with more to come by Sandy Florian, Brandon Hobson, Aaron Burch, etc.:

Coming next down the pike is a reissue of Stories in the Worst Way by Gary Lutz, hopefully in time for the above March 5 reading in Brooklyn.

All the best in 2009, and a happy 30th birthday to Blake!
