Ain’t nuthin’ like lightin’ the fire

Has the good Gov. got me thinkin in the colloquial?  You betcha!

Some very necessary links/news for this post-debate morning:

Deb Aoki checks in with Michelle Mauk over at DMP who says that DMP will be slowing production from 12 to 7 books/month for next year, with a few titles pushed to 2010.  As for 801 Media, BL fans can count on the company putting out one dirty book per month as planned.

“801 Media books are still on schedule,” said Mauk. “Because they had been running late, the big thing with those is that the next coming months they HAVE to be on time.”

And manga comes to SPX via Fanfare/Ponent Mon!  Wow!  Yay!

From the press release:

Bethesda, MD: UK / Spain publisher Fanfare – Ponent Mon is bringing their
line of award-winning graphic novels, manga  and nouvelle manga from Japan
and France to the 13th annual Small Press Expo this Saturday and Sunday,
October 4 and 5, 2008 at Booth W33.

Visitors to Fanfare – Ponent Mon’s table W33 at SPX will also have the
chance to enter to win a prize pack of Fanfare – Ponent Mon graphic
novels. No purchase necessary, and winners need not be present to win.

Stephen will have copies of Jiro Taniguchi’s Quest for the Missing Girl, and Hideo Azuma’s hilarious and bizarre Disappearance Diary at his booth, along with Ice Wanderer and Frederic Boilet’s Tokyo Is My Garden.  If you’re in Bethesda for the weekend, swing by!  Stephen’s a great guy and his books are really top rate.
