Something Old, Something New

It seems hard to believe that the Astrophysicist's Tango Partner Speaks is now almost seven years old, and that heelstone.com, which also hosts the e-literature magazine Riding the Meridian and the first year archives of Perihelion, as well as work by site founder Jennifer Ley, is now receiving over 1/2 million visits a year.

If you're new to us, you'll want to know that The Astrophysicist's Tango Partner Speaks was designed in the early years of web publishing (pre-Javascript, Flash, Shockwave) to be viewed thematically, using its hypertext and picture links. If you would prefer a more linear exploration, please see the Table of Contents which lists all poetry resident on the original site.

Our flesh-time section offers web links to works featured at the Guggenheim Museum's Works and Process series: Brave New Word, hosted by American Letters & Commentary. We're also in the process of hot-linking any books in print we mention to Amazon.com in case you want to purchase some reading you can snuggle up with late at night. We'd especially like to recommend Loss Pequeno Glazier's new book, Digital Poetics : The Making of E-Poetries, University of Alabama Press, 2001 and Stephanie Strickland's V: Wave.Son.Nets/Losing L'Una, Penguin, USA, 2002, with its accompanying web site Vniverse, a project which goes a long way to proving there is no digital literary edge -- the literary universe, webbed or not, is always expanding.
