Small Press Distribution

After nearly a year off the shelves, Whirligig is for sale once again. Spuyten Duyvil Press was having some difficulty finding a new and reasonable distributor for its books. To make an extremely long story short, Small Press Distribution, a venerable and legendary book distributor, will now carry certain Spuyten Duyvil titles. Whirligig should also be back on Amazon soon as well, courtesy of Greenfield Distribution (more on this to come).
