Upcoming book: These Burning Streets

Update: The book is published and available from Combustion Books!

Sometime this summer we’ll be releasing a short book of poetry by political arrestee Kelly Rose Pflug-Back. For those who remain unaware, Kelly was arrested at the G-20 demonstrations in Toronto in 2010 and accused of being the leader of the leaderless Black Bloc. The worst of her charges have been dropped, but she has pleaded guilty to destruction of police and corporate property (I believe the formal charge is “mischief”) and awaits sentencing. Until she is free of the judicial system, we will be selling this book as a fundraiser, with every dollar we receive going directly to support her.

For more about the political repression related to the G-20 in Toronto, we suggest the Toronto Anarchist Black Cross.

For more about Kelly’s poetry, see for example her poem Sweet Mercy, Her Body an Ark of Wild Beasts published by Ideomancer.

Strangers In A Tangled Wilderness reborn

After being mostly-on-hiatus for the past year or so, we’re happy to announce that Strangers In A Tangled Wilderness is back. We’re looking forward to releasing new zines, photo books, regular books, albums, posters, and anything we can think of in our goal to produce the finest in anarchist culture.

Also, we’ve redesigned our website entirely to better allow people to download and/or buy the stuff we make.

SiTW is now being printed and carried by Black Powder Press!

Almost a year after our mail-order shut down, we’re excited to announce we’ve partnered with anarchist publishers Black Powder Press to keep our zines in print!

So far they’re only carrying Ever & Anon, Being The Adventures of One Fine Summer, and …And Into Autumn, but the rest of our catalog will be forthcoming!

Bookmark the Strangers In A Tangled Wilderness page on the site in order to keep up to date on what they’ve got!

Once, not so long ago but in a place very different from here, there lived a little goblin boy. As everyone knows, all little goblins are called boys until they grow up and pick whether they want to be a goblin man or goblin woman or something else entirely.

This little goblin’s name was Jessup, and he wanted to be a runner more than anything else in the world. In those days, people used runners to pass messages between one village and the next. They had telephones, of course, but ringing someone up was considered rude and was only done in emergencies.

Every spring, each village held competitions to see which goblins were the fastest. The winners competed against the human boys in the great summer festival. Human children, of course, are both boys and girls. But the girls weren’t allowed to compete because human culture is sexist.
