  1. Just a quick note. A few years ago, Pecan Grove Press did accept and had in preparation Premature Gods by Michael Steffen. Unfortunately, Mr. Steffen withdrew the book because another press wanted to publish it. While I wish both Michael Steffen and Moonstone Arts Center the best with the November 23rd reading and all future endeavors, the information (posted to your website on October 26, 2010) indicating that Premature Gods is forthcoming from Pecan Grove Press is incorrect.

    Thanks much,
