Now you can find what you're looking for

Coming soon: a database of every single Bamboo Ridge Press issue ever published! That's just about THIRTY YEARS' worth of your favorite local literature. 90 regular issues (including Mavis Hara's upcoming An Offering of Rice) and even the 6 "special issues" that you might've missed because the only proof of BR-ness was on the copyright page.

Ever look for a particular poem or story only to find that it was so popular that somebody tore it out? (I am not making this up; certain Hamilton Library patrons must really enjoy poems by Eric Chock, Juliet Kono, and Wing Tek Lum.) Ever get mad because somebody got to Folks You Meet at Longs at the library before you did?

With this database, you can look up a poem or story (or song or artwork or ANYTHING) and see in what issue(s) you can find it. For example: "Termites" is in issues #4, #31/32 The Best of Bamboo Ridge, and #45/46 Last Days Here. Also, while you're in the Bamboo Ridge section of the library, you should book it on over to issue #81 because that's where part of your Folks fix can be fed. You can also look up a particular author and see what issues they appear in, or even if they have a book full of poems and stories, published by Bamboo Ridge.

Next NICOLE blog: adventures in bookbinding, or "BR issues, scotch tape, and me" … or maybe describing in detail my impression of "Cinderella's" Gus struggling to carry the pieces of corn, but substituting twenty Bamboo Ridge issues. I had a lot of fun working on the database this summer (and thus a lot of stories). Keep visiting to find out more of the database saga. (Or just keep visiting, because we have a brand new shiny cool website!)

Still really excited that I appear on the "about us" page,
NICOLE
