Mother Ghost author Casey Hannan’s work is all over the place. From cool, easy going libraries in Brooklyn to the pages of Publishers Weekly, Hannan has captured people’s attention.
His newest appearance occurs over at the always beautiful print issue of NANO Fiction. The latest issue, Volume 6 Issue 2, is out now and features tiny stories that are full of might. Check it out here.
We’ve got big plans for the rest of 2013.
Our list of writers’ for the rest of the year include Alana Noel Voth, Tim Jones-Yelvington, Ashley Farmer, and Cassandra Troyan. If you haven’t heard of them, or read them, then shame on you. But it’s okay, you’ve still got time to get acquainted.
Check out their websites, click the links to read their published work, and get excited. We are.
The cool folks over at Mellow Pages Library have been really nice with all the recent sharing of THP’s books. This isn’t news. But they have found a way to step up their game to a whole new level with our very own “showcase.”
From left to right is James Tadd Adcox, Brandi Wells, Casey Hannan, Robb Todd, and Brian Oliu.
Okay, it’s a shelf technically but we still dig it. We believe that’s a shot from behind the counter (aka where the magic happens.) Of course you’ll have to visit yourself to see. Sorry for the blurriness but in our minds it only adds to the mystique of the place.

Casey Hannan, author of Mother Ghost, just turned 28. It was on Monday. If you forgot, well than shame on you. A nice thing to do would be to wish him a belated. An even better way to celebrate his birthday is to buy a copy of his book ($13.95 paperback, $6.50 E-book, or $17.50 for both.)
Either way check out his latest interview, hot off the presses, over at Necessary Fiction. He talked to Amber Lee about influences, advice, and his collection among other things. Check out the full interview here.
Earlier this month head honcho Roxane Gay was awesome enough to spread the goodness that is Tiny Hardcore Press, along with PANK material, and other assorted indie press goodies to Mellow Pages Library.
The boys in Brooklyn, recently started, have seemed to be gaining traction in the past few weeks and it’s great to think that THP titles will be hung on the walls next to some really incredible books.
While all the books look lovely, we’ve got to say that the THP covers stand out. Maybe it’s because of the awesome design work (here’s looking at you Alban Fischer) or maybe it’s because they’re our little children but either way our eyes gravitate towards them. No hard feelings for the other ones. Really this is as lethal a bundle as you’ll be able to secure legally.
Here’s a link to the full list of the 21 titles Roxane graciously provided.
This past Saturday Casey Hannan, author of Mother Ghost, read, with a few others, at the Spray Booth Gallery in Kansas City for A Common Sense Reading Series.
We’ve even got the photos to prove it. Either Casey’s hands are huge or we have been telling you the truth and our books are in fact tiny. But size doesn’t matter, does it?

Hannan’s book got a starred review at PW. The short, but lovely, write-up including this charming ending, “With intricately crafted, delicate yet jarring language, Hannan presents a vision of the world that is wholly original and enthralling.”

Writer, alt lit critic, activist, and general outspoken personality Andrea Coates had some things to say about Frank Hinton’s book Action, Figure. In her usually outgoing fashion she posted a 6 plus minute video of her review complete with dolls and multiple wardrobes.
Take it or leave it, the review was memorable and, as with many of Coates’ endeavors, will likely cause a reaction.
Check out her video review here and remember to play nice with your dolls.
This Saturday (March 30th) Casey Hannan, author of Mother Ghost, will be taking part in what sounds like the coolest law firm ever but is, upon further examination, a reading.

Frank Hinton’s Action, Figure has once again garnered a very favorable review. This time Before Sunrise Press gave it an A grade.
BSP, established last year, “is a visionary new publishing house that provides a voice to young, unheard talent with transgressive ideas and unique forms of artistic expression.” Makes sense that Hinton’s writing would appeal to them.
Calling it a “captivating read” and noting that “the simplicity of the dreamlike conclusion is nicely written and hopeful in its own way,” reviewer Chris B. Sanchez had plenty of nice things to say about the book.
