The O Mission Repo No Longer Available on Amazon

Dear Readers-

It is with great dismay at the current state of book distribution outlets in America that we regret to inform you: The O Mission Repo will no longer be available for purchase via Amazon. In addition to requiring that small publishers such as ourselves swallow all shipping costs and taking a 55% consignment slice of the cover price, Amazon has also begun charging an annual "membership" fee that has more than reduced our profit margins. In fact, it seems that, despite marking up the Amazon price by $4 per book, we are not exactly breaking even. In fact, WE are now paying THEM for the privilege of being listed on their Walmartian website.

But do not despair! We will continue to offer all remaining copies of The O Mission Repo, on our very own website for the reduced cover price of $12. That's a the good way.

What's the moral of this story? The next time you buy a book, please consider doing so directly from your friendly local small press or publisher.

Nathaniel Tarn is the 1st Trading Card of 2011

We here at Fact-Simile are pleased to announce that we will be continuing our Poetry Trading Card series in 2011. And so, without further ado, we present #13 in the series: poet, essayist, anthropologist and translator Nathaniel Tarn.

With a publication history that spans the last half-century, Nathaniel Tarn has left an indelible mark upon the pages of modern literary history. Recent titles include Ins and Outs of the Forest Rivers (New Directions), Avia (Shearsman) and The Embattled Lyric (Stanford University Press).

Now, with this latest, previously unreleased, poem, Nathaniel Tarn once again takes to the field. This limited-edition poetic collectible is available for just 99 cents (plus shipping) on our website.

Subscribe today to receive a new trading card in the mail each month during 2011. And, of course, 2010 cards are still available individually or as a complete set!

Best Regards,

Travis Macdonald & JenMarie Davis
