From the Stacks: February 3, 2006

Utne receives some 1,200 magazines, newsletters, journals, weeklies, and zines. Add in hundreds of books, CDs, and DVDs, and it's a flood of media that lines the walls of our library and piles high on our desks. All the ideas, people, and stories inspire lively daily chatter, but can't all fit into our bimonthly magazine. So we've decided to share the gems here: Welcome to the second edition of "From the Stacks," a new weekly feature on Check in every Friday for the freshest highlights of the independent and alternative media.

A new issue of The Dandelion arrived in our mail lately, a bright spot of wildness that I latched onto immediately. The little anarchist journal appears infrequently, like many special things, edited and printed by Mike Coughlin in off-the-beaten-path Cornucopia, Wisconsin. This edition, the first published in more than five years (v.6 #23), focuses on the life of Henry David Thoreau admirer Valerio Isca, a Sicilian-American anarchist machinist who lived and worked in New York City till his death in 1996. (Isca is one of many who tell their story in Paul Avrich's oral history of American anarchism, Anarchist Voices). Coughlin also sent along a children's picture book he's just published, Lucius and His Collection of Unusual Things, written by his wife Kathy and illustrated by Robert Holton. For information about Coughlin's other publications (ask him about his Amateur Press Association pamphlets): -- Chris Dodge
