Items, Forgotten, 2017-18 – poems combined with stationery letterhead – usually from expired and forgotten hotels, ships and the like – then inky and postal stamps added for amusement and fake context

Requited, 2016-17 – poems of love, confusion, yearning, hope and coming together and drifting apart and the resultant emotions evoked (naturally)

Hemp Culture in Japan,  1998 – Cannabis Culture #13 (first issue after switching from Cannabis Canada to Cannabis Culture) – Note: At 6000 words, still the longest article they’ve published.

Letters from Russia, 2004 – original text and art (plus remixes, interviews etc) from an epistolary literature project with letters ostensibly written by a cobbler in Napoleon’s army marching to Russia – bound with hemp, wood and vellum

Uncle Weed’s Red Rock Adventure, 1988 – an illustrated (by Brandon G. Kiggins) story from 1988 about Uncle Weed monkey-wrenching with some young ‘uns – a mix of Tintin and Edward Abbey perhaps
