John Bradley is and has been neighbors with both John and Bradley. John likes the shape of the prose poem, while Bradley prefers to inventory what goes in it. John went to Meadowlark School in Lincoln, Nebraska, while Bradley attended Colorado State and Bowling Green State University. Both somehow claim credit for "Love-In-Idleness: The Poetry of Roberto Zingarello." And neither know how they managed to edit Atomic Ghost: Poetry of the Nuclear Age and Learning to Glow: A Nuclear Reader.

Bill Spratch is putting the finishing touches on a collection of fiction tentatively titled "Two People Stories" not because there are only two stories about people in the collection or because the same two people figure in each story but because he realized that nearly every story features two people (a different pair in each story) grappling with each other and with people issues. Rather than be disturbed with this similarity of format and theme from one story to the next, he has decided to address it head on, to expand it and to use the two-people format to explore ways people relate to each other. Alternatively, the collection may be called "Cute Trash," which is a phrase James Dickey used to describe the work of the late, great Donald Barthelme. This collection is to be published by a major publishing house as soon as a major publishing house contacts him. Most recently he has had work featured online in Pindeldyboz. He enjoys the sight of women walking down the sidewalk on their way to work with hair still wet from the shower. He also enjoys prepositions.
