This website is run solely for the purpose of gaining a wider readership for my poems and prose works and not for making financial profit from them. And although I make PDFs of my poems, novella, and essays available (for reading only) to all who visit the site (by simply clicking on the individual volumes), I reserve the right to remain in control of all hard copy dissemination of any of the volumes in which these appear—this in order to avoid the risk of compromising my copyright protection on any of these works. Therefore, readers interested in obtaining hardcopy volumes of the latest hardcopy edition (Edition 5.1.20) of my Collected Poems (& Essays), a perfect-bound paperback of 600 pages measuring 6" x 9" (x 1 1/2" thick and weighing 2.25 lbs.) and printed on 24-lb. paper within a card-weight cover, priced at $19.95, are invited to contact me (see "Contact" page) or else Auntie's Bookstore in Spokane, WA. This book is priced at substantially less than even the cost of its printing, as my highest priority is reaching a wider readership. Furthermore, shipping, if through me, is free. In addition, a limited number of original copies are still available (through me only) of Epithalamium, the wedding poem found in either volume, here produced in a separate ribbon-bound color-illustrated calligraphy edition (as shown on both the Poems and Images pages). The price is $12.95 (from me), again, considerably less than the cost of printing, and shipped for free. See images of two of the books below.
