December 2013

We are tribeless and all tribes are ours.
We are homeless and all homes are ours.
We are nameless and all names are ours.
To the fascists we are the faceless enemy
Who come like thieves in the night, angels of death:
The ever moving, shining, secret eye of the storm.
-"Open Letter to Filipino Artists by Emmanuel Lacaba"

PMP's 10th issue to date. An all-poetry anthology that aims to put together in one book trends in contemporary poetry from the Philippines and beyond. An ambitious project that wishes to span the whole planet. 100 poems in one book.

1. Each poet may submit 1-3 poems (of which the editors may get 1-3 poems for inclusion), with a maximum of 5 sentences bio-note.
2. Poems submitted must be unpublished. Poems submitted must be cut and pasted in the body of the email. Attach if you want, but please put the poems in the body of the email. It allows us to read and access the poems more easily. Plus if we have to download attachments in a laptop full of viruses while we're running late for work, and there's one attachment per poem, we can't even tell you how pissed we become.
3. Artists may submit cover art for this project. Cover art is front and back cover with the words Paper Monster Press and Poets of the Apocalypse in the front cover.
4. Artists submitting their work agree to allow PMP to publish their work in zine format (around 50 or so copies), and an e-book format (which will be sold through Paypal, or Amazon, or wherever).
5. Payment is 1 copy of the zine (while supplies last), if not, its a copy of the e-book.
6. Submissions must be sent to papermonsterpress@yahoo.com only.
7. Deadline is on August 31, 2013.

I like to collect certain zines when I can find them.

There is a zine called BIG FISH that I've only been able to find one or two issues of.

There's an issue of this zine that had a cover designed by Allen Ginsberg. The design was of a serpent eating its tail (An Ouroboros serpent).

Does anyone happen to own a copy of this zine, or know where a good place is to dig around for this zine? I'd be willing to pay $40 for this zine.

Thanks for your time!
