Peaches and Bats #3 is a hand-sewn zine with a letterpress cover and 72 
pg. photocopied interior. It costs $5, and can be purchased in Portland 
at Powell's or Reading Frenzy; in Olympia at Orca Books or Dumpster 
Values; and in Seattle at Elliott Bay Books. Soon it will also be 
available at St. Mark's Bookstore in New York, and eventually, I hope, 
in other select corners of the world. You can also order it directly 
from me by sending a check for $5 (postage included) to Sam Lohmann, 
4025 SE Taylor St., Portland, OR 97214. Or email me about trading for 
your chapbook or zine.

Submissions for issue 4 are welcome at peachesandbats at gmail.com.


David Abel has the most extraordinary air of self-satisfaction. Yet, if 
we stop to examine those Chinese writings of his that he so 
presumptuously scatters about the place, we find that they are full of 
imperfections. Someone who makes such an effort to be different from 
others is bound to fall in people's esteem, and I can only think that 
his future will be a hard one. If one gives free rein to one's emotions 
even under the most inappropriate circumstances, if one has to sample 
each interesting thing that comes along, people are bound to regard one 
as frivolous. And how can things turn out well for such a man?

Joseph Bradshaw eats chicken and horses in Portland when he's not 
teaching the world to sing at Portland State University or Pacific 
Northwest College of Art or writing his famous chapbooks such as The Way 
Birds Become (Weather Press) and This Ocean, or Oppen Series (Cannibal 

Kaia Sand is the author of the poetry collection interval (Edge Books, 
2004), the wee book lotto, the chapbooks Heart on a Tripod and tiny 
arctic ice (all from Dusie), and The NAFTA (forthcoming from Duration 
Press echap series). Jim Dine created artist books from tiny arctic ice 
and lotto (Steidl, 2008), and Sand coauthored Landscapes of Dissent: 
Guerrilla Poetry & Public Space (Palm Press, 2008) with Jules Boykoff.

Sam Lohmann is a poet, editor, letterpress printer, ex-busboy, future 
substitute preschool teacher, occasional tutor, and temporary cashier in 
Portland, Oregon. He will be reading work written by others for his 
yearly zine, "Peaches and Bats."

Gabriel Will and Ian Ackerman (Olympia), and Warren Lee (Portland) play 
long-tone music in just intonation. In 2007, they completed a recording 
residency at the Satsop Nuclear Cooling Tower in Elma, Wa. In 2009 they 
had a "Super Weekend."
