"fuck" one he writes: "It is quite naturally
unprinted prior to your request to print it--this
country where it's considered 'unprintable' is
ironically one of the few countries where such an
idea would be considered 'funny,' since change
(except in nature) is not fluid unto itself--
paradox makes for change.'"
By the time you read this, the book should be
ready. The first 3 issues of The OUTSIDER were
long ago sold out, & are now expensive collector's
pieces. Johnson Reprint Corporation is reprinting
1, 2 & 3--to sell for $27.50.
Price for this &4/5 Book Issue is $5 a copy as of
now--may go to $6 on publication. But for readers
of ARTS IN SOCIETY the price is $4, prepaid. The
edition is limited, so order now to be sure of your
copy. We received some 2000 orders for 1, 2 & 3 after
they were sold out. Before you know it 4/5 likewise
will be submerged in the rare book market.
