On the other hand, I'm always up for adding poetry titles to Galatea's Poetry Library! If you're a poet and don't see your book HERE, and are curious about THE CHAINED HAY(NA)KU PROJECT, I'd be happy to trade!

Actually, you can see other titles available for trades on the left-hand column of the site. If interested, just email Moi at

Meanwhile, THE CHAINED HAY(NA)KU has made it to London, courtesy Senor Priego!

And I love Ernesto's assessment, to wit (underlined emphases mine):
This book is the result of a collective, collaborative effort. The book reflects the open, online nature of the poetic process. The genealogy of the project is reproduced in detail on its pages: blogging, email exchanges, comments on posts, etc. As a result this is as honest as poetry can get: there is no make up here, at least no extra make up: imagine a poetry anthology with behind the camera special features. Notions of authority, centrality, language, hierarchy, genre, art forms, geography are interrogated in practice in the collective creative efforts of dozens of contributors from around the world. If you are into art, digital media, social networking, blogging, electronic writing or poetry do give this little book a try. You won’t be disappointed.

Do check it out and ENJOY!
