Tyrus Books and Busted Flush Press announced yesterday that their planned merger had fallen through. BFP's David Thompson was one of the first supporters of The Lineup: Poems on Crime, and shortly before the merger was announced, we had piqued his interest in helping with the publication aspects of The Lineup. Soon after the announcement, David tragically died.
All of this is added context for the crossroads The Lineup faces going into its fifth year of publication. Despite being around this long, we can't help but feel our reach isn't what it could be. The four co-editors believe in The Lineup, but we need to hear from everyone else who does, too, particularly those able to help with publication and distribution.
I'm happy to discuss at g_so AT yahoo DOT com.
