Each poem was written in collaboration with others he visited or with whom he traveled.

Other poets and artists who appear as characters or voices in the book include Michael McClure, Michael Rothenberg, Eric Padget, Eileen Elliott, Judy Irwin, Ed Coletti, and Mark Eckert.

They are going like Mama’s hotcakes and these bona fide collectors’ items will only increase in value as time goes by! There were only fifty copies made and already four have been stolen by little gray art and poetry speculators from another planet!!!!
