Steve Halle is involved in so many literary projects that we didn't have time to talk about them all. He's the Director of the Publications Unit at Illinois State University, but on the side he edits the on-line lit mag Seven Corners, runs co•im•press (literary micropress), organizes the Re:Verse poetry reading series in Bloomington-Normal, and writes his own darn good poetry.  We sat in the Hansen Student Center at Illinois Wesleyan University while they were setting up for a poetry reading that evening--so that's the clattering you may hear in the background.

Samuel Wildenradt visited our show on a trip home home to Peoria from England, where he lives on a commune.  He talks about some and reads some of the poetry from his two books,The Fervent Crab and Self-Portrait.  His work is lyrical, confessional, and original.
