  • 808s & Otherworlds (FORTHCOMING) QUICK VIEW 808s & Otherworlds (FORTHCOMING) a collection of essays and poetry by
    Sean Avery Medlin

    September 2021!

    "A book that rattles in the mind long after the final word. A book that has a generous dexterity and playfulness in form, but sacrifices nothing in language, in image, in metaphor. Play this one loud and let it shake whatever dormant corners you've got."
    —Hanif Abdurraqib


    Against the backdrop of the Phoenix suburbs where they were raised, Medlin weaves a tapestry of worlds — as gut-wrenchingly real as young lovers unmythed by segregation — and imaginative as the story of Mer-Africans as narrated by Storm. Coming Soon!

    "The 808, as a sound-making machine, creates what some might say is the part of the beat that you can most feel in your chest, in your limbs, the part that leaves you trembling well after the sound departs. It makes sense, then, that what we have here, is a book that does the same. A book that rattles in the mind long after the final word. A book that has a generous dexterity and playfulness in form, but sacrifices nothing in language, in image, in metaphor. Play this one loud and let it shake whatever dormant corners you've got."
    —Hanif Abdurraqib, author of A Little Devil in America, Go Ahead in the Rain, and They Can't Kill Us Until They Kill Us

    808s & Otherworlds interrogates the effects of media misrepresentation on the performance of Black masculinity.

  • Born into This QUICK VIEW Born into This a collection of stories by
    Adam Thompson

    July 2021!

    “With its wit, intelligence and restless exploration of the parameters of race and place, Thompson’s debut collection is a welcome addition to the canon of Indigenous Australian writers.”
    —Thuy On, The Guardian


    With humor, pathos, and the occasional sly twist, Thompson’s characters confront discrimination, untimely funerals, classroom politics, the ongoing legacy of cultural destruction, and — overhanging all like a discomforting, burgeoning awareness for both black and white Australia — the inexorable disappearance of the remnant natural world.

    "The Tasmanian landscape and a whole host of engaging, charming and well drawn characters populate the stories that make up Born Into This… a wonderful reminder that there is no monolithic Aboriginal Australian."
    —Simon Clark, The AU Review

    From an Aboriginal ranger trying to instill some pride in wayward urban teens on the harsh islands off the coast of Tasmania, to those scraping by on the margins of white society railroaded into complex and compromised decisions, Adam Thompson presents a powerful indictment of colonialism and racism.

    We are all explorers, vegan food explorers — join us on this culinary journey as we slay Vegan Hunger Demons.

    If you've searched online for a recipe, you've likely encountered a digressive treatise on family history or mundane childhood reflection, none of which actually has anything to do with how to make enchilada sauce. After extensive scrolling, you've really only uncovered that self-taught chef/blogger Linda needs to talk to a professional counselor about her relationship with her mother.

    In this Two Dollar Radio Guide to Vegan Cooking, executive vegan chefs Jean-Claude van Randy and Speed Dog (with constructive criticism from Eric Obenauf) unearth a fount of vegan cheffing knowledge. In addition to exquisite recipes and vegan life hacks, they, too, view food as a story: nary a meal is prepared without recalling when Speed Dog summited Old Goat Mountain in Banff, armed with a sack of supplies, a handkerchief, and a wily pack burro. 

    This guide is for you if: You're looking for satisfying vegan food; interested in a vegan diet but are unwilling to give up cheese; accessible vegan recipes that don't require hard-to-find ingredients you have to google and can't pronounce; the adventurous tales behind the meals.
