Support independent publishing: buy this book on Lulu.

A lot has been happening in Mythville for the past full year. First off, a number of Mythville contacts have been successfully self-publishing their books.

For example, Lance Kaufman is getting his "Eyes of Sedona" book of photographs and anthropormorphic poesy into the bookstores of northern Arizona. It is the second book by Kaufman to be edited by the good folk of Mythville, and they are much proud and pleased for the association.

Next, the reluctant curmudgeon, Rod Amis, has gotten a special deal from for a well-received book on the demise of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, as well as a collection of African writers who have been part of his own stable of contributors at, "Africa Fresh! New Voices from the First Continent."

In addition, Douglas McDaniel's satire, "The Valley Floor War," has been included in an anthology that's part of a fund-raising effort for Sheep Mountain Alliance, which is fighting development efforts on the so-called Valley Floor near Telluride, Colorado. In the past year McDaniel has succeeded in getting his work sold in bookstores across Oregon, including the Bloomsbury bookstore in Ashland, Oregon, and outlets in and around Lincoln City, on the central coast of the state, including Bob's Beach Books, The Book End and yes, The Filthy, if only because William Blake would like it that way. In Arizona, McDaniel's books are avaialable across northern Arizona, including the well-read Coyote in Sedona, A Step in Time in Camp Verde, as well as at all other outlets for, including the regional slam poetry group's aforementioned Web site.
