I am very proud to offer this exclusive first pressing of the initial People's Poet Anthology (2003). This was in fact the second book ever published by the company (Paula Brown Publishing) and was (and still is) an absolutely novel concept in poetry publication and publications in general.
The idea was the brainchild of Paula Brown whose dream it was to offer the publication of poetry to people whose work may otherwise never receive greater recognition. Thus, artists from just about everywhere would write in to her website (or even at times directly to her home address) with their most heart-felt work, begging for a chance to be known.
The venture was way ahead of its time and like most contemporary concepts of that nature it did not receive the publicity nor remuneration it deserved. Although Paula Brown Publishing did produce some of the most novel and original publications I have seen, due to lack of funding the project was suspended indefinitely and now remains only to sell what remains of the stock they once had.
Mysteriorum was in its developmental stages at around the same time that The People's Poet was launched and maybe as a result of that the companies seemed to share a common fate, as both were eventually disbanded and while not closed down, simply left to gather dust in the same way that some once treasured possession is never entirely discarded, but yet no longer cast a loving gaze.
I have several copies of this anthology which I am not taking a profit on, but simply selling on Paula's behalf. This edition is extremely rare and now out of print entirely, with no chance of it ever being re-released. With enough interest it is possible Paula will begin work on the project again, but for now we can simply offer this soulful book for sale while it still exists.
