New York, NY: Kicks Books, 2014. First Edition. Softcover. Signed by Charles Plymell at his Foreword. "A lost trove of unpublished end-times poetry and prose is unleashed in Sun Ra's terrifying new trilogy PROPHETIKA. Here, Book One delivers hard-edged poetic predictions and prognostications to mankind from the doomsday pen of visionary genius Sun Ra!" (from back cover) The first (& as yet only that we're aware of) volume of a projected trilogy of writings by Sun Ra (born Herman Poole Blount, 1914-1993), the legendary Jazz composer, performer & Showman Extraordinaire with his Arkestra. With a foreword by Charles Plymell, poet-printer-publisher & Ultimate Hipster who's as much a (thankfully living) legend as his subject. Above the foreword's title "SUN MAN SPEAKS (AGAIN!)," Plymell has hand-signed his name in bold black ink. As Plymell writes in his short-but-intense piece, "One hundred years after Sun Ra first found himself imprisoned on this vagrant planet, and twenty-one years after he was freed from its orbit, the long lost sacred texts of the Saturn Man have risen from the shifting sands...Read it, and heed it." Indeed! Softcover original. A sui generis literary rarity from the prolific musician, enriched by Plymell's signature. In very fine condition with only very light wear & a few tiny bumps at lower edge & corners of back cover, edges & corners of spine; otherwise virtually mint inside & out. Very Fine. [Item #3223]
