Eight-Stone Press Publishes WASTE

BALTIMORE, Md. – Defecation, Dumpster-diving and decaying old-world grandeur are but a few of the chunks backing up Waste, the latest "theme" issue in the award-winning Smile, Hon, You're in Baltimore! series from Eight-Stone Press.

In this edition, ANGIE E cleans up Number Two in Aisle Four...again; EARL CROWN ponders the "Martin Gross Neglect" at Springfield Hospital Center; J. GAVIN HECK comes along, sings a song and joins the jamboree of one dirty rat; a good banana goes bad for J.T. CASSIDY; and A.J. MICHEL lays down just what happens – and where it all goes – after you flush, plus a whole lot more. Contributors include:

From the harbor to the hills, Smile, Hon, You're in Baltimore! collects the tales of those on whom Mobtown has left her indelible mark. Polished, professional essays; barroom sermons delivered from the sanctity of a favorite stool; the poet's fleeting sentiment, captured in both word and snapshot – Smile, Hon offers a slice of Baltimore as told by Baltimore, presented with the time-honored DIY accessibility of a limited-run, handcrafted zine. A two-time Utne Independent Press Award nominee, Smile, Hon has also been dubbed "Best Zine" by Baltimore Magazine (2008) and Baltimore City Paper (2004). Previous theme issues have tackled such topics as rats, scars, crime, tattoos, transit, sex and the supernatural.

Smile, Hon, You're in Baltimore! is an Eight-Stone Press production and is distributed by Atomic Books (Baltimore, MD); City Lights Books (San Francisco, CA); Cyclops Books (Baltimore, MD); Microcosm Publishing (Bloomington, IN, and Portland, OR); Quimby's (Chicago, IL); and Red Emma's Bookstore Coffeehouse (Baltimore, MD).
