Support International Independent Poetry Publishing

Nthposition's global headquarters is a minuscule eyrie in North London, and now that In The Criminal's Cabinet has been in print for nearly three years, publisher and chief editor Val Stevenson is keen to get a few boxes of unsold copies out of her bedroom, though not nearly as keen as her long-suffering husband... If you would like one, please email Val.

Copies will be sent out on a 'first come, first served' basis, and when they are gone, ITCC will be officially out-of-print.

Copies will be a staggeringly reasonable £2.00 plus postage and packing (for airmail outside the UK) per copy as follows:

USA: £6.72;
Canada, Australia, India, EU: £4.88;
UK: £2.98

Please pay Val via PayPal or send a sterling cheque, made out to: Val Stevenson, to 38 Allcroft Road, London NW5 4NE, UK. And don't forget to include your full postal address.

Contributors to ITCC are: Robert Allen, Tammy Armstrong, Louise Bak, Carole Baldock, Simon Barraclough, Jim Bennett, Caroline Bergvall, Charles Bernstein, bill bissett, Stephanie Bolster, Tom Bradley, Kimberly Burwick, Jason Camlot, Sherry Chandler, Maxine Chernoff, Todd Colby, MTC Cronin, Kieran D’Angelo, Robert Davidson, Jennifer K Dick, Andrew Dilger, BR Dionysius, Isobel Dixon, Antony Dunn, Zdravka Evtimova, Peter Finch, David Finkle, Martin Fisher, Brentley Frazer, Philip Fried, Ethan Gilsdorf, John Goodby, Giles Goodland, Daphne Gottlieb, Carrie Haber, Jen Hadfield, Christine Hamm, Paul Hardacre, Kenneth J Harvey, Steven Heighton, Kevin Higgins, Paul Hoover, Ranjit Hoskote, Halvard Johnson, Fred Johnston, Jill Jones, Norman Jope, Jayne Fenton Keane, WB Keckler, Amy King, Chris Kinsey, Roddy Lumsden, Alexis Lykiard, Don McGrath, Nigel McLoughlin, Jo Mazelis, Valeria Melchioretto, Matthew Miller, Vivek Narayanan, Nessa O’Mahony, Michelle Noteboom, Richard Peabody, Tom Phillips, David Prater, Sina Queyras, Srikanth Reddy, Ali Riley, Peter Riley, Peter Robinson, Noel Rooney, Thaddeus Rutkowski, Rebecca Seiferle, John W Sexton, Ron Silliman, Hal Sirowitz, Hank Starrs, Sean Street, Seamus Sweeney, Joel Barraquiel Tan, Heather Taylor, Roisin Tierney, Rodrigo Toscano, Ilija Trojanow, Alison Trower, Paul Vermeersch, John Welch, John Hartley Williams, Philip Wilson, Max Winter, Harriet Zinnes.

Like a crazed killer clown, whether we are thrilled, horrified, shocked, or angered (or all of these) by Donald Trump, we cannot claim to be rid of him just yet. He bestrides the world stage like a silverback gorilla (according to one British thug), or a bad analogy, but he is there, a figure, no longer of fun, but grave concern.

There has long been a history of misogynistic behaviour in American gangster culture - one thinks of the grapefruit in the face in The Public Enemy, or Sinatra throwing a woman out of his hotel room and later commenting he didn't realise there was a pool below to break her fall, or the polluted womb in Pacino'sScarface... and of course, some gangsta rap is also sexist.  American culture has a difficult way with handling the combined aspects of male power, and male privilege, that, especially in heteronormative capitalist enclaves, where money/pussy both become grabbable, reified objects and objectives (The Wolf of Wall Street for instance), an ugly fus…


According to the latest CBS, ABC, etc, polls, Clinton is still likely to beat Trump - by percentile odds of 66% to 33% and change. But the current popular vote is much closer, probably tied with the error of margin, around 44% each. Trump has to win more key battleground states to win, and may not - but he is ahead in Florida...

We will all know, in a week, whether we live in a world gone madder, or just relatively mad.

While it seems likely calmer heads will prevail, the recent Brexit win shows that polls can mislead, especially when one of the options is considered a bit embarrassing, rude or even racist - and Trump qualifies for these, at least.

If 42-45% of Americans admit they would vote for Trump, what does that say about the ones not so vocal? For surely, they must be there, as well. Some of the undecided will slide, and more likely they will slide to the wilder and more exciting fringe candidate. As may the libertarians.

Eyewear predicts that Trump will just about manage to win th…
