COLD HARD TYPE II: Escapements now available

The second volume of COLD HARD TYPE is now available! I am glad to present Escapements: Typewritten Tales from Post-Digital Worlds.

With no digital technology, the world can be a harsh place—and a surprising one. Whatever happens, our typewriters will be there to document it. Imagine the possibilities in this collection of stories, poems, and art.

This volume includes contributions by Wendell Berry, Jenny Bristol, Rory Bristol, Ariana Davenport, Shelley K. Davenport, Jamie Davies, Frederic S. Durbin, Mathilda-Anne Florence, N. E. Glenn, Martyn V. Halm, Lori Hedges, John Howell, Scott Kernaghan, Shane L. Larson, Timothy Ley, LA Marler, Todd Mauldin, C. M. Mayo, Andrew V. McFeaters, Bill Meissner, Klaus Mielke, Eliezane Moon, Duane Morrison, John Munroe, Christopher Ochs, David W. Pedersen, Jim Pennington, Monica Quinn, Kim e. Revay, Charly Roland, Andre Gene Samson, Philip L. Simpson, Maria Tolentino, Armando Warner, and Donald Winzer.

You can purchase Escapements on Amazon now.

And don't miss volume 1, Paradigm Shifts!


  1. My copy is presently in the Amazon shipping system. I can't wait until tomorrow.
    Volume 1 is to arrive today!

  2. Got vol.1 an hour ago, vol.2 - ETA: Monday.

  3. Well, I'm waiting for twins to arrive ;)

  4. I'm still trying to wrap my head around an author of the stature of Wendell Berry self-typing and submitting a piece to this project. Can't wait to read both volumes.

    1. Not exactly — Fred secured Mr. Berry's permission to reprint (and type) one of his previously published poems that seemed appropriate.

  5. Rec'd both and reading every chance I get! What a great project! Kudos, All!
