&NOW Books Mission

&NOW gathers in constant motion

&NOW is the not then that never passes

&NOW is the letters of the names of all its contributors scrambled into a zetabet

&NOW is not an anti-anthology because transgression defers recognition

&NOW stands in the danger zone between popular culture & the elitism of native intuition

&NOW has fun at no expense; for free, like words are, no charge

&NOW is the ampersand that signs for a sign of the present in the past

&NOW is a message to narrativity signifying that all is well

&NOW: a sentence that contradicts itself /&/, so contradicting, sets a standard for comprehending love /&/ religion /&/ nature /&/ politics as portrayed by the artists beginning now and forever in the past because we baptize the dead unto us

&NOW is a message from narrativity simplifying that nothings ends, well or ill

&NOW is theater that has moved off the stage but continued in search of the seven props it needs to make the emotion of the action live to make live action mind

&NOW is the anti-Pushcart Prize?

&NOW arrives 200 years after Ivanhoe, 100 years after Freud, 50 years after Picasso, Elvis & Faulkner, and fourteen years after www… kicking its limbs screaming its lungs in voice & gesture that articulate arrival

&NOW recalls commerce as a form of interaction outside the monetary systems while it rings the bell

&NOW rings the bell to open trading on each day’s aesthetic market then listens all day to the bellringing echo /&/ then goes home after the dayclosing bell reinaugurates the sound·syllable that begins the invocation at the outset of each fiction-act
