One of the great things about small press and independent publishing is that there's always new ideas and new spins on old ideas. We're keen to keep discussion boiling, and plan to publish features and interviews with writers, publishers and other activists in the BBR Directory.

This page carries the index of those articles, and also provides links to other venues for small press discussion, including my own published writings and opinions on the subject – well somebody has to!  :-)


  • Doing Tongues with Lance Olsen – Read what the P.K.Dick Award-finalist has to say about postmodernism, encouraging new writers, and the state of the small press (August 1998)
