thanks for this

Hello again,
Thanks for the orders. Just to clear things up, the postage is $2 for US and $4 overseas. This should cover it close enough for up to three copies. I do my best to NOT make money off postage and think that "Handling" fees are pure bullshit.

Also, I was the printer and bookbinder, but not the publisher, for Lee Ranaldo's book Against Refusing.

Thanks, I hope it's not too late for me. I would really love a copy.

bospress 11.04.2011 08:55 PM

Once it sells out, I'll post it here. Until then, it is still available.

I just bought mine through Bottle of Smoke. Really looking forward to reading it.

bospress 11.15.2011 06:24 PM

OK. The paperback edition is now sold out. Everyone who emailed or paid so far is good to go.


JohnnyLurg 12.05.2011 09:40 PM

I still haven't received mine in the mail. :(

stu666 12.06.2011 05:08 PM

I'll send an email but things from the US do take a long time to get here sometimes and there's extra mail with christmas coming up... I hope it will get here soon.

hipster_bebop_junkie 12.07.2011 12:27 PM

I just this minute received mine in the mail. :)

stu666 12.15.2011 04:00 AM

Anyone in the UK got this yet? (toxic johnny?)

toxic johnny 12.15.2011 07:43 AM

Yes... I got mine a couple of weeks ago.
Has yours not arrived yet?

stu666 12.15.2011 07:59 AM

maropi 12.19.2011 06:20 AM

bospress 01.13.2012 08:55 PM

Did everyone get theirs? Please email me at if I still owe you anything. Thanks, Bill

stu666 01.14.2012 06:21 AM

I now have mine, thanks.

I am happy to announce the second printing of this book. There are 200 copies in the second printing. The poems are identical to the first printing. The cover has the same art, but on a slightly different colored paper. Copies are $5 each and can be ordered by visiting my website (bospress dot net) or just emailing me (bill at bospress dot net) and I'll hold you copies. These will be ready to ship in a couple weeks, so I'm not as worried about collecting money yet as I am about making sure that those that want these can get them.


bospress 02.05.2012 08:31 PM

There is a link to order it directly on my website (on the orders page). Don't order it under the "9 in Nine" area at the top. A few lines down, you will see the button to order Thurston Moore's Lion. Some people emailed me to order it, but I had a HDD failure and had to have it replaced by Dell, so those emails were lost. No worries, I have copies and have not sold out.
