Introducing VEL: A Reprint Series

Big Lucks is happy to announce VĖL, a new reprint series. VĖL (the Lithuanian word for "again") seeks to give new life, prioritize low overhead, and keep our favorite titles in print (and in bookstores & libraries). A series of chapbooks will also be released as part of the VĖL series in PDF form.

The first three VĖL titles will be:

  • Wildlives (2nd Edition), by Sarah Jean Alexander (releasing 4/2018)
  • When All Our Days Are Numbered Marching Bands Will Fill the Streets But We Will Not Hear Them Because We Will Be Upstairs in the Clouds, by Sasha Fletcher (releasing 7/2018)
  • How We Light, Nick Sturm (releasing 10/2018)

Wildlives (Second Edition) is already available for preorder and copies will be available at Whale Prom. This new edition contains over 50 pages of new poems. Readers who have already purchased Wildlives directly from Big Lucks will be able to order it for $6—contact books[a]biglucks.com with proof of receipt for a discount code.

In 2019, we will be publishing:

  • I Am a Very Productive Entrepreneur, by Mathias Svalina

We are looking for 1-2 more out-of-print full length manuscripts for our reprint series. We're considering an open reading period for these titles, but please fill out our query form if you have an out-of-print title you'd like us to consider.
