Fewer Voices

Filed under: — site admin @ 1:34 pm

So Paul Ableman is dead (October 25th.). I remember reading I Hear Voices in the Olympia Press edition almost a half-century ago: I’m glad to see it’s still in print. But sorry to note that Heathcote Williams’ play AC/DC (twelve years later) which came as part of the same memory, isn’t.

With this pen-stroke yesterday it became legal for these smirking fools to declare anyone in the world an enemy combatant; to seize, imprison and torture that person — and to have no legal obligation to produce reason nor evidence for their actions.

Gonzalo Millán (1947 – 2006)

Filed under: — site admin @ 8:45 am

Gonzalo Millán, (1947 Santiago de Chile – 2006 Santiago de Chile), Chilean poet, author of many books, editor of anthologies, translator, visual artist (his Self Portrait from Memory was published last year) died this past weekend aged 59. Exiled in Canada during the Pinochet years he there co-founded Ediciones Cordillera, devoted mainly to publishing the work of Chilean writers in Canada and the journal El espíritu del valle. I assume Saturday as the day of his death, and Santiago the place, as the news came from Kurt Folch M there, overnight, and he referred to “yesterday”.
NOTE LATER: saturday morning/dawn (1:30 a.m)
