and I also saw my friend, Eagle Bear Lawrence, on the way to his 99-year-old auntie’s memorial service:
There is a new 9-part poem on evalisaelasigue.wordpress.com, “The Process”. This has been distributed as an entire folded broadsheet and partial bifolds, and is now readable in entirety online.
“The Process”, partial bifold with hand-typing
Come to Bellingham’s Alternative Library at 4pm on Sunday, November 12 for a unique opportunity to experience a science fiction reading over environmental art film in the presence of live painting, with tea and pot luck snacks.

Chapter-plate hardcover of book 1, Fire On All Sides on the New Fiction rack up front at the San Juan Island Public Library in the town of Friday Harbor. Bottom shelf facing, third from left. Sharing uptime with Assassin’s Fate & The Book of Joan, both authors whom I have met. Thanks, town of long residence where I live! I hope people will enjoy it and feel free to tell me how they liked it.
(Signed) Paperback volumes of Fire On All Sides are now available for sale at the Alternative Library bookstore in Bellingham, WA. As of picture, far right upper, that’s left corner shelf by the doorway – sharing space with A Language Older Than Words & Promethea, something near and something dear.
I joined in for the equinox Open Stage last night at the Alternative Library in Bellingham WA, reading some of the Arkuda/Soleil/library storylines from Fire On All Sides. It was a treat to finally go this wonderful place, which opened about a year ago. On stage were poets, strings, pianists, originals, covers, melons, and me, in muck boots and still wearing my coat.
