Overview

The first in Subterranean Press' plans to bring to light some unduly neglected works by noted poet William Ashbless, this new chapbook contains “Slouching Toward Mauritius,” a piratical short story written more than 25 years ago but never published, along with a lengthy pirate poem, “Moon-Eye Agonistes.” Ashbless' notorious compatriots Tim Powers and James P. Blaylock have contributed an introduction and afterword, respectively, to put the pieces in their proper historical perspective.
