Getting with the Program

This is
the same
as that
& that’s
the same
as this
which means
all things
are interchangeable.


Great.


Now we
can get
with the
Program,
this Program
or that,
it doesn’t
much matter
they’re all
part of the
Big Program.


People who
don’t get
with the
Program are
Anomalies.


Anomalies are
cause for
suspicion
which is
all the
justification
needed for
strong surveillance,
& anyone the
Surveillance Program
can’t pigeonhole
goes straight
to Guantanamo
or someplace
in Poland,
no questions
asked.


Do your
part.


Keep an
eye out
for Anomalies.


But don’t
be fooled
by Outsiders.


An Outsider
is part
of the
Big Program
pretending not
to be.


One way
to spot a
hardcore
Anomaly is
they spurn
Outsiders.


You may
wonder how
this problem
with Anomalies
was kept
in check
before Guantanamo,
but let
me tell
you buddy,
there have
always been
Guantanamos,
ever since
the first
Program sank
its teeth
in &
began
looking around.

click the Hcolom Press logo to visit the web page...HCOLOM PRESS is the heir to Vagabond Press, which began as a main player in the Mimeo Revolution of the Sixties and continued publishing right into the jaws of the new millennium. HCOLOM PRESS embodies the spirit of Vagabond Press, retooled for the times we live in.

Hcolom is Moloch spelled backwards. Moloch is an Old Testament deity to which children were sacrificed, a practice society still engages in with increased enthusiasm. Consumerism is the new Moloch, manifesting itself like cancer in war, politics, the arts and religion, in every nook and cranny of human endeavor, draining the intrinsic beauty out of life and mutilating the innocence and magic of childhood with its commercial meat hook. HCOLOM PRESS intends to publish books that by their nature repudiate this pernicious force–novels, poetry, children’s books and books that transcend genre.

Our launch book, in June of 2006, was John Bennett’s novel, Tire Grabbers, a fable of sorts, a reality book rooted in the fantasy of our times, the story of the coming of Moloch and the children who rise up in rebellion against it.

Books of kindred spirit will follow close on its heels. Go for it by clicking here… or hit the Hcolom logo above… or just hit any of the following covers…
