Jörg Fauser, born in 1944 near Frankfurt/Main, broke off his academic studies to work and travel, with longer stays in Istanbul and London, working as a casual laborer, airport baggage worker and night watchman. He supported himself as a journalist, wrote several novels, short stories and poetry collections, and was acquainted with Charles Bukowski. Fauser died in 1987 in an accident on the autobahn near Munich.
Mark Terrill’s writings and translations have appeared in over 500 literary journals and anthologies worldwide, a dozen chapbooks, several broadsides and three full-length collections, including Kid with Gray Eyes (Cedar Hill Books) and Bread & Fish (The Figures). A native Californian and ex-merchant seaman, he currently lives on the grounds of a former shipyard near Hamburg, Germany, with his wife and a large brood of cats.
