Garbanzo is another entry into the canon of the Quiescence series of chapbooks -- hand-created books that are rivet bound, silk bookmarked, screen-printed dust-jacketed, and individually numbered. There are, without a doubt, no other books being created in this way, anywhere, within a solar system or three.

A literary journal like no other, Garbanzo seeks to open the loudspeaker of storytelling to all those who pour forth their heart and soul into the ink that longs for the page. Based neither on one’s prior conquests, nor their lineage of authorial name, our book features a mix of forty-one tale-tellers both new and seasoned, loquacious and brief, serious and witty and utilizing the form and format of stories, poems, essays, pieces of theatre and...for the first time two community collaborative writing projects.

Garbanzo (book three) is NOW AVAILABLE. The book is 143 pages and is limited to 304 6/10ths printed copies. There will also be a digital version available via the iBookstore soon after the tangible release.

26 poems...14 stories...

1 essay...1 experimental...
