      Alabama's newest small-press series of quarterly books has published six
      titles so far, with the next one due October 8, 2004.

      The Birmingham Arts Journal, a series of art and literary collections in
      magazine format, is published for members of the non-profit Birmingham
      Art Association, and for subscribers. Copies are available in selected
      galleries, museums, book stores and shops. Current and earlier issues
      may be ordered through BirminghamArtAssociation.org and jimreedbooks.com
      for $4.00 each.

      "Some 120 authors and artists have been published to date in the
      Birmingham Arts Journal," says editor Jim Reed, who reports that the
      diversity of artistic contributions is unusual for a "literary/art"
      publication. "The fact that the journal is an all-volunteer effort
      (no-one is paid--the editing, proofing, selection and distribution is
      conducted by the editorial board) makes it all the more exciting and

      "So far, the Journal has remained on course, carefully selecting works
      from the young (fifth graders to college students), the mature
      (middle-agers to octogenarians), the foreign (from Iran to Russia to
      North America), the highly experienced (from prize-winning to famous),
      from angry to sweet, from romantic to edgy, from fantasy to hard-core
      reality, from Black to White with every shade in between, from rich to
      poor...all with the idea in mind of sharing damned good stories and
      images with readers and viewers who are willing to be surprised,
      informed and stimulated," says Reed. "If it's a story that must be told,
      if it's an image that must be seen, it will eventually make its way into
      our pages."
