A few months later the book gets its own website. On the occasions that Erik finds he has enough energy to do so, he will post here news and announcements of readings, signings, and any other notable events that bear some relation or other to the book. For now feel free to order yourself a copy using the links at the left. Or you may peruse excerpts first, if you are the type to prefer kicking tires before purchasing metaphors.

Atelos was founded in 1995 as a project of Hip's Road, devoted to publishing, under the sign of poetry, writing which challenges the conventional definitions of poetry.
All the works published as part of the Atelos project are commissioned specifically for it, and each is involved in some way with crossing traditional genre boundaries, including, for example, those that would separate theory from practice, poetry from prose, essay from drama, the visual image from the verbal, the literary from the non-literary, and so forth.
The Atelos project when complete will consist of 50 volumes.
The project directors and editors are Lyn Hejinian and Travis Ortiz; the director for text production and design is Travis Ortiz; the director for cover production and design is Ree Katrak.
