Comments

The elusive "drug issue" of Casement's short-lived literary journal, with contributions by Carl Larsen, d.a. levy, Al Young, Ray and Bonnie Bremser, John Sinclair, and others. This copy contains the equally elusive Heroin Haikus insert, containing East Peoria poet Wantling's drug-inspired verse, with cover art and internal illustrations by Ben Tibbs. The chapbook was issued in a smaller "Author's Edition" of 50 copies, and a much smaller number of copies were issued as inserts in Spero (closer to 250 than 900). Clay & Phillips, p.296.
