Sun Ra’s “Lost Words” to Be Published

Kicks Books’ “Prophetika” is out on April 25

Prophetika, described as “a new collection of lost parables and polemics” by the late Sun Ra, will be published by Kicks Books on April 25. With a foreword by Charles Plymell and an introduction by Phast Phreddie Patterson, Prophetika is “the first of three books that will comprise the Prophetika, trilogy, a lost trove of unpublished end-times poetry and prose-hard-edged predictions and prognostications to mankind from the doomsday pen of visionary genius Sun Ra,” according to the publisher’s description.

A New York City book launch will take place at St Mark’s Church/Poetry Project on April 25. To order the book, go to Prophetika. Also available at that page are Sun Ra CDs and vinyl and two different Sun Ra fragrances. (Really!)
