Billet-doux by Thomas Disch

Prior to our 2008 publication of Thomas Disch's The Word of God, Or, the Holy Writ Rewritten, we've done an original broadside of Disch's recent poem, "Billet-doux." It's an account of Death's struggle to find his peers (or even just a friend), told with the delicious black-humor that you'd expect from Mr. Disch.

The broadside, limited to 150 signed, numbered copies, was published in honor of Tachyon's twelfth anniversary (celebrated yesterday at a grand soiree at Borderlands Books). It's a lovely piece, with original art and design by the very talented Barry Barnes at Trained Eye Graphics. If you couldn't make it to the party, you can still purchase the broadside from us.

Those of you wondering what the heck a broadside is (I know I was), check out the wiki (I know, lazy answer, am running late as always).
