Brute Press???

If, for some reason, you still follow this blog, you are probably wondering,

"Hey! What's the deal with Brute Press anyway? Is it a one-issue 'zine? Does it even exist anymore? Why am I reading a blog that hasn't been updated in over a year?"

Those are all questions. But here is a better question:

"What sort of wedding present would Brute Press really like?"

That's right. Because Brute Press moved to the other coast, got married, and got a real job (kinda). Or, it wasn't so much that Brute Press did all those things, but it's managing editor/only partner/inspirational mascot did.

But Brute Press is still here.




New projects?


Two, count 'em, TWO projects coming up in short order.


Scab Suite, a novella by Adam Rothstein. An ongoing release, quantity to be determined. Hopefully for sale soon via select retailers in the Portland, Oregon area. It is hand-bound using a adaptation of perfect-binding, hilariously called less-than-perfect-binding. It is 104 high-quality, acid-free pages long. Cover price: $6.

There will be a limited edition of 20 copies with hand-made art covers done by Rosalynn Ford. Each one of these will cost $9, and is suitable for display. Also suitable for reading.

Pictures, and maybe information about online ordering coming soon! In the meantime, ole email if you want one and we'll work it out.


The Master's Book of Soups, an annotated recipe book bringing you new recipes from a by-gone era of cooking. Date available TBA. If you like soup, but are bored of the old chicken noodle, this book will inflate your soup, stock, consomme, stew, potage, and boullion vocabulary by 1,000-fold. Literally! 1,000 recipes, plus editorials. This nasty bit of awesomeness will be further announced when details are available. Expect sometime 1Q 2009.
