In response to popular demand, Otoliths is releasing one of the books from its next round of offerings early, E-X-C-H-A-N-G-E-V-A-L-U-E-S: The First XI Interviews.

Tom Beckett's E-X-C-H-A-N-G-E-V-A-L-U-E-S website has become, since its inception in 2005, an important source of information on contemporary poetry and poetics. This book brings together the first eleven interviews from the ongoing series, augmented by bionotes and almost one hundred pages of self-selected examples of the interviewees' work.

The interviewees (some of whom later reappear as interviewers) are Crag Hill, Thomas Fink, Nick Piombino, Sheila E. Murphy, Eileen Tabios, Jukka-Pekka Kervinen, K. Silem Mohammad, Geof Huth, Barbara Jane Reyes, Paolo Javier, Stephen Paul Miller and Jean Vengua. Most of the interviews were conducted by Tom Beckett, and Ron Silliman and Mark Young also appear as interviewers.


Also forthcoming from Otoliths Books later this month: Nick Piombino's "visual collage novel" Free Fall, Rochelle Ratner's poetic journal/memoir Leads & Sheila E. Murphy's first integrated collection of text & visual poetry, The Case of the Lost Objective (Case). All will be available via the Otoliths site and Lulu bookstore.
