do you have the parasite issues? if not, i'd be happy to drop those to you. i have a decent amount of sotos pdfs/epubs

Can anyone direct me towards some of the more interesting critical literature on Sotos in French?  Specifically "The Peter Sotos Question" by Bruce Benderson?  The more I dig, the more it seems that there is a fair bit that has been written about him---just not in English!

there are some odds and ends collected here: https://web.archive.org/web/20090302093243/http://www.editions-desordres.com:80/critiques/peter_sotos_cahier.php
you should be able to get a PDF of the Benderson essay through the Nouvelle Revue Fran├žaise website. It's no. 577, Avril 2006.

re the Sotos/Mason correspondence mentioned earlier, there's really nothing to it. iirc Mason asks for a replacement copy of Buyer's Market since his was confiscated by the police and there's just one letter from Sotos where he apologizes for being late to reply.

Cheers for that... Mason got busted for KP once didn't he?

Thank you very much.  I recall coming upon that page a while back, but I couldn't remember it when I started digging this time around.

received my copy of Kee MacFarlane yesterday and am about halfway through it. the publisher's note accompanying it is interesting and recommended reading before starting the book. Chip from 9BB refers to this new work almost as a "book review" in the publishers note, and so far Soto's prose is pretty lucid in covering Place's work.

i found the assertion by Chip that if Dworkin were still alive that she'd be a TERF pretty notable and probably correct.

yep she would definitely be.

In Italy terf are a rare thing, since they are 99% insted the lGBTQ movement, whilere there is a  HUUUGE percentage of Swerfs. but this goes out of topic

My copy made it out to me today.  Haven't had the chance to do anything other than look it over yet (he packed it like a tank!), but everything looks interesting so far.

Sadly I completely missed out on the new Sotos books.
Maybe a silly question, but is there anyone who wants to sell these books:
1. Kee MacFarlane
2. Obviates

I am selling some Sotos books myself [click here].
Ironically, I understand that the Obviates book is a compilation/re-issue of 2 of the original books I am listing (Predicate & Show Adult).

As far as I am aware, Obviates does not add anything besides a few sections of scrapbook material.  It's interesting, but likely far from essential.

Yes, it will be something to thing about. I agree that it is non-essential, if you do not already own the books, either individually, or as part of a compilation book.
