  1. Thanks for publishing me, Ross. Take care and keep in touch.

  2. Ross, thanks for the exposure, it is a great zine and a damn shame. All the best to you, Richard.

    Ross, Thank you for publishing my poem. I only just recently discovered this site. I’m glad the archives will be here though so I can go back. Sorry to see it close.

  4. Ross, I’m sorry to see you close, this is a surprise. Thank you for everything you did for all the poets out there who wanted to be heard.

    Dear Ross,

    Thank you from the bottom of my bottomless heart for all of the time and consideration you have graciously presented to my so-called art over the years. This is truly (thus hopelessly) the saddest demise I will ever experience in modern poetry, as you have were the first publisher to read and indigest ninety percent of my unoriginal material over the last sixteen months or so. I will always toke the dry smoke of opium while reading random Ginsburg poems and envision every piece of art which entered my conscience, courtesy of your disgretion. Hopefully you will someday find the motivation to create another site again. But until then, we can always revisit the archives.

    I echo all the previous supportive comments. Ross, you really helped my poetry career along, and I’ll never forget that. You ran two damn fine journals, and I’m proud to have been a part of both. Take care and best wishes always.

  7. Ryan Quinn Flanagan says:

    Truly a damn shame, Ross…really created a cool venue for many writers (and readers) here! Take care, man.

  9. Radek says:

    I enjoyed the poetry while it came! 🙂

  10. Donal Mahoney says:

    Ross, very sorry to hear about your health problems.

    Hope recovery is swift.

    And I hope some day you will return with AM or Opium as well as your own work at different sites.

    Until then, your energy will be missed.

    And thanks for leaving the archives up. Not many editors do that.

  11. James Babbs says:


    Thanks for all the support! Wish you all the best!

  12. Donal Mahoney says:


    Every time I see one of your poems go up on another site, I check to see if AM has been resuscitated. I hope one day if your health allows, you will bring it back. The “scene” is not the same without AM. It had its niche and that niche has not yet been filled. Hang in there.
