And so — in tune with the collaboration of review with review, myself as real-time reviewer in collaboration, as ever, with the book being reviewed, one poet (Mark Valentine) in collaboration with several other poets, and each of the other poets in synchronous collaboration with each other — this particular real-time review will now be continued and concluded HERE.
