Some of the fine people from the much-missed Punk Planet have a new website, Is Greater Than, looking at all things indie, leftish, and interesting from fine foods (the all-veggie KFC Famous Bowl) to the ongoing Afghan War. They’ve been running a series on independent presses and have featured Tin House, Featherproof Books, and now Small Beer Press.
Tin House, well, we know you know. Fantastic journal and now putting out some wild books.
Featherproof are a newish press coming straight out of the Pork Center of the Americas, Chicago. Jonathan Messinger’s collection Hiding Out should just have enough weirdness to keep you happy. Or you could try their first step into the YA field with Susannah Felt’s novel This Will Go Down on Your Permanent Record (great title!).
