Read This to Get Your Enjoys; Volume Two [with, bound in] the alphabet according to Jenny and Maria

By Forde, Maria, editor and contributor

no place: Self-published, 2008. Pamphlet. Unpaginated, a 24-page 6.5x5.5 inch booklet with a teeny 4x4 inch one fastened inside. Some pages are color-reproduced, the artwork varies (most notably by sex), the smaller book is an ABC for teens. Staplebound, very good clean copy (it may be no.2 of 50, unclear). NB, find a ostensible "pocket," quite flimsy, inside back cover labeled "Death Mix 69" -it shows no sign of ever having had a CD in it and is probably just another authorial joke.

Oakland: printing & binding by The Key [for author], 2000. Unpaginated, about 15p, monochrome illustrations verso and text recto, hardbound first edition in 7.5x8.5 monochrome boards with gilt spine panel (looks like a little Golden Book, the kids' series, except slightly larger).

Content is not for small children; the rasty ghost of a real-life local jazzman comes to haunt a living player. Addictions and sexual jealousy are part of this story, which obliquely refers to California realities (a music joint on Market Street, Ronald Reagan governor, &c. Author Malnik may be related to the deceases, as Spade's given name was Donnell, without the terminal e.

The front cover is edgeworn and dust-soiled, with a short rough tear at the foredge, the back cover is dusty, the narrow untitled spine panel has an inch-long burst at the tail and a snag at the head.

Et cetera. The sole whiff of things military is a photo showing, from a great distance, a parade ground and sixty or seventy uniformed cadets with shouldered arms, caption reading simply "Battalion".
