Marvin, Blue Cloud Quarterly Press, (1978). Three interviews, with Russell, Lance Henson, and Jim Weaver Barnes, compiled by Patrick Hundley. Inscribed by Russell in 1980. Laid in is a typed letter signed from Russell to poet Will Inman, dated June 25, 1980, in which Russell comments at some length on the current state of poetry and small poetry magazines ("...those that used to be LITTLE, to invite spontaneity, experimentation, and true optimism, have gotten BIG, created a new conformity, a crafty and stupefying DULLNESS..." He remarks that much of the poetry is "completely introverted and narcissistic. I could write better poems about my occasional hemorrhoids..."). Both items fine. Russell has corrected one sentence of the transcribed interview. [#003215] $200
