E-Chapbooks for the Masses
Okay, there are like four things in that sentence you don’t understand.
- Revelator Press: brainchild of Wordwright and crew. I have never heard a group of people use the word chapbook so enthusiastically.
- Andrew Hungerford: famous at MSU in my day for daring to double-major in astrophysics and theater. Should probably also be famous for owning the ofdoom.com domain name.
- “Between the Water and the Air”: Andrew’s play, produced at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and elsewhere. I think it’s quite good, and not just because it takes place in Michigan.
- PDF-ness: You know, normally I’d be opposed, but honestly Revelator’s Brandon Kelley did such a rad job on the design it’s hard to complain. Print it out, read it on the couch.
One larger thing I will say is this: I really appreciate the dexterity and light-weight-ness of Revelator’s approach. Wanna get your voice out there? No reason to wait for anybody to say it’s okay, or tell you it’s good enough. Just begin.
