San Francisco, CA; High Falls, NY: Northside Publications, Inc.; Home Planet Publications. First Printings. Loose Folded Sheets. A bundle with two rare issues of independent journals, both featuring contributions by & about Charles Plymell, the great American poet, printer, publisher & Quintessential Literary Outlaw: (1) Northside San Francisco, Issue 80, May 2011. With an interview of Plymell conducted by Sharon Anderson on the occasion of his poetry reading in San Francisco on May 22, 2011 (pg. 12). During the early 1960s, Plymell lived in a residence on Gough Street in SF with Neal Cassady, Allen Ginsberg & co., in a milieu that bridged the Beat Generation with the countercultural explosion in that city; later in that decade he would print the iconic first Zap Comix. Both of these phenomenon & later topics are discussed in this brief but insightful interview, which features photo image of a grizzled, worn-but-lighted Plymell by Gerard Malanga. Also in this issue is an article on the book launch of Can't Stop the Beat: The Life and Words of a Beat Poet by Ruth Weiss, "North Beach is my beat" by Tony Long (both pg. 16), & much more. With departments on food & wine, travel, real estate etc.; contemporary ads. (2) Home Planet News, Issue 65, Vol. 17, No. 3, Winter 2011/12. This number of the independent journal of poetry, fiction & theater features a review of Drowning Like Li Po in a river of Red Wine- Selected Poems 1970-2010, the now-classic collection by A.D. Winans, by his kindred colleague Plymell (pg. 6). With many other reviews & contributions of poetry & prose including Winans' "Poem Written on a Dark Sunday Afternoon" (pg. 10). Both issues are loose sheets folded widthwise. Two rare issues of great interest to the Plymell, Beat-&-Beyond collector.
