If you’ve perused these pages before, you probably know I have “issues” with the notion of Genre (and those who Police its boundaries). So I’m always on the lookout for stuff that ignores it (them). Last SPD catalog was light on such material. This one is not. (Oh and I go in for twisted nature poetry and whacky satirical verse, too.)
Anyway, help me out here. If there are any titles on the following list that you would *definitely* get – or definitely NOT get – please let me know. I mean, this is getting out of hand . . .
