Copies of my new chapbook from Spare Change Press, Barry Merry Baloney, have arrived in the mail, just in time for my three local readings this month.  Many thanks to editor David McCoy of Massillon for his time, care and belief in my work!  Barry Merry Baloney is part of Spare Change’s Ten Leaves Poetry Series. 

I have 25 copies (of 30 total printed), which I plan to distribute on a first come, first serve basis.  For a copy, send $7 (quick!) to John Burroughs, 3344 W. 105th St. #4, Cleveland, Ohio 44111 or show up at one of these events:

12/7/12 — Canton’s First Friday Poetry Spectacular featuring John Burroughs!
This event includes a WOW Poetry Slam qualifier. The Poet’s Haven will also have copies of the VENDING MACHINE: Poetry for Change Volume 3 anthology available to anyone who makes a donation to the Poetic Provisions food-drive at this show.

12/12/12Mac’s Backs Book Release! Featuring Burroughs, de Blas, and Borsenik 
This event celebrates the release of my first ever full-length poetry collection, The Eater of the Absurd, from NightBallet Press (more about that in my next blog post!).

12/22/12Writing Knights Press Presents: The Apocalypse at Breakneck Gallery.

I plan to share completely different work at each of these events — so please consider coming to more than one. 

And don’t forget to check out Barry Merry Baloney.  Its contents (which I’m tempted to call ten semi-fictions in search of a truth) include “Clothes n Time,” “Red,” “Trans Mission,” “Statuesque,” “Lady Leda,” “The Wanterror,” “Pa Tricked,” “Sleep Indictment,” “Angler” and “Bone.”
