paintings by DeLoss McGraw

“Now the cycle of poems is complete and encompasses the history of the Americas. In Crazy Horse & the Custers, Bill Heyen’s poems flash across glimmering quantum plains to illuminate fierce truths about the invasion and the eventual retaking of the Americas. I smile every time I think of this book.”

A Seneca Journal

by Jerome Rothenberg

"Jerome Rothenberg is one of the truly contemporary American poets who has returned U.S. poetry to the mainstream of international modern literature. At the same time he is a true autochthon. Only here and now could have produced him - a swinging orgy of Martin Buber, Marcel Duchamp, Gertrude Stein, and Sitting Bull. No one writing poetry today has dug deeper into the roots of poetry."
— Kenneth Rexroth

To Know Others, Various & Free

by Robert Gibbons

“Good to know that Gibbons and Nine Point Publishing have created a third volume to form a Trilogy, along with This Time and Traveling Companion. I go with him on Goya, Goya, Goya, and like the way his voice comes across naturally at the same moment perceiving. I don’t know much else in English like it. The books are finely done, too.”

Updated: May 25, 2015 Jack Matthews’s Schopenhauer’s Will: das Testament
Forthcoming Jun 16, 2015

“Rarely has philosophy been so vital and interesting.”

“Jack Matthews’ creative biography explores Schopenhauer’s days and works. Rarely has philosophy been so vital and interesting. Matthews transforms gray ponderings into the red blood of life and white bone of story. A man and his times spring quick from the page. Schopenhauer’s Will is beautifully written. The prose is clear, and the great philosopher’s ideas stretch taut and well-defined as muscles. The book delights and teaches, and as readers turn pages they will so turn through ideas that their lives will be enriched.”

– Sam Pickering (inspiration for John Keating in Dead Poet’s Society)
