Grey Literature


The Fourth International Conference on Grey Literature in Washington, DC, in October 1999 defined grey literature as follows: "That which is produced on all levels of government, academics, business and industry in print and electronic formats, but which is not controlled by commercial publishers."

In general, grey literature publications are non-conventional, fugitive, and sometimes ephemeral publications. They may include: non-commercial translations, unauthorised copies of works and unauthorised facsimiles of works.

Grey literature is generally produced for the purpose of the dissemination of information; it is extremely rare that such material commands a purchase price, except when arriving at second hand dealers.

Four poetry pamphlets:


"Figures in a Landscape"Fly Spring, you eagle""Silence Into Light""Tugs of the Singing Wire"


 'Unofficial' translation of  'The Naked Chicken Project'

Translated from German back to English. Translation is prefaced by a translation of the biography of Edmund, given in 'Tor Zu Den Sternen'



Book Facsimilie; "They Shall Not Die"

Believed to have been printed in 2000 somewhere near Luton. Although an official print production this print-run is effectively classified as Grey Literature since the publishers at the time appear to have been unaware that the author was known and published without obtaining the appropriate permissions . No other information is known, and no image is available.
