  • Back in the 90s I had a growing poetry and zine publishing empire with an ingenious goal of world domination. Then I went to grad school, and I put my plan for global hegemony on hold. But this summer I began my quest anew, by publishing the Budget Press Review #5 and spreading my message along the US Pacific coast.

    Now it is on to phase two of my brilliant plan, the Budget Press Review #6. Fresh off the presses, I will continue my work building a base in California, while also sending out copies to those of my already converted minions who order a copy online. And this holiday season, I will personally begin my work among the people of Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Illinois.

    I know there are many unfortunate people who will not heed my call, who will be left behind when I rise from the ashes of the coming revolution (the recent elections played out exactly as I predicted!). Do not be one of those lost souls.
