First color cover, with poetry by Elaine Equi and Ray Gonzalez; fiction by Patricia Eakins and Robert Coover; artwork by Chad McCail. The fist issue with serious national distribution.


Spring/Summer 2001 [sold out] Thanks to Robert Bringhurst the trim size of the journal is refigured, 1: 2, the self-replicating page corresponds to the much feared diminished fifth in Western music nomenclature. The issue features work by Stacey Levine, Jeffrey Encke, Maile Chapman, and translations of Dada and Ultraist poets Guillermo de Torre and Theo van Doesburg, and fourteenth century poets of the "subtle art": Johannes Symonis, Solange and Franciscus.

Fall/Winter 2000 This issue is worth $15 just for the two really lonely looking Shaker women on the front cover and includes work by Catherine Kasper, Melissa Hotchkiss, Ruth Danon, Diana George, J. Robert Lennon, and a translation of Orkeny Istvan. #3 is also the last issue with drop caps and headers.


Spring/Summer 2000 Featuring Brian Evenson, Hermine Meinhard, Camden Joy, Matthew Derby, the enigmatic A. P. Maddox and I. W. Mallet, and an excerpt from the sixteenth century Chinese novel The Plum in the Golden Vase.


Our modest first issue produced for under $600 features work by Michael Burkard, Diane Wald, Michael Martone, Bill Knott (who’s still mad at us for all of the typos) and translations of Baudelaire, Alkman, and Theokritos. [1999]
