Happy Holidays to you and yours and theirs

Michael Nicoloff gives Summer BF some love on his attention span. Michael Nicoloff is fierce as fuck. He turns moist towelettes into sand paper.

Dana Ward's first book is available: This Can't Be Life. Edge Books published it, not us. Cause we're still crazy about staples. Buy this shit. Stuff it in a stalking.

Our first book of 2012 will be by a new one by Ron Palmer. Ron Palm is the man and this book's as crazy as Justin Beiber eating raw meat on the 38 Geary.

Summer BF is also going to be hitting the East Coast this spring. There will be dates to announce soon. Call us, Philly!

Happy Holidays to everyone. Decolonize all of Oakland! Liberate it all!

Hooray! Jess Barbagallo has written a review of our most recent chap, Dodie Bellamy's "Whistle While You Dixie" for The Poetry Project Newsletter. Here is a photo of the Feb/Mar issue:

Thank you to Jess for reviewing the book, to Cori Copp for including the review and to Ariel Goldberg for putting us in contact with Jess. Wonders never cease!

Truly, we haven't held the issue in our hot little hands yet or read the review, but we were so excited by this MAJOR PRESS ACTION that we had to share. Congratulations to Dodie!
