Reality Street's last words


I've read and admired Reality Street books for years and became a "supporter subscriber" some years ago, receiving each year's round of books published; my favourites include Denise Riley's Selected Poems and both editions of the Out of Everywhere anthology. Sadly, editor Ken Edwards today announced that the last book they published would be the last book the press will publish. The valediction can be read here. I'm sorry to see one of the UK's most innovative presses fold, but know that there are others rising up all the time. Thanks to Ken and fellow co-founder Wendy Mulford for all their hard work in bringing these books into the world.
