***100 Cassettes started life as 100 hand drawn/painted cassette covers for an installation at the dA Center for The Arts in Pomona, California. Six months after that installation, the book 100 Cassettes started being written in earnest. The book’s ninety nine chapters (two of the cassettes make up one chapter) delve into the possibility of each imagined release by a wealth of artists spanning over fifty years. Find early entries of abstraction on Ida Cox, Alice Cooper, Talk Talk, Earl Sweatshirt and Lord Invader to nonfiction-based entries on Tony Conrad, Korla Pandit, Jackie Moore and Black Sabbath. Featuring a foreword by Jonathan Lethem and an afterword by Allen Callaci, the book winds around autobiographical information, the rich culture of Southern California from 1969 to the present day, and all musical points in between. 296 page paperback book.   “In 100 Cassettes, music and whatever else there is to life try to drive through Dennis Callaci's brain, and continually get stuck in its fascinating detours and rest stops. Who knows which parts are fact and which are fiction, but it's definitely all true.”—Marc Masters, Washington Post, author of Now Wave.

Heart Like A Starfish

***ALLEN CALLACI (REFRIGERATOR) is a librarian, a rock and roll singer and heart transplant recipient. His memoir Heart Like A Starfish is the account of his death-defying journey and the healing that follows for both himself and those around him. With illustrations by the author and beautiful cover art by AMY MALOOF, this wonderfully chaotic tale is told in a non-linear style that manages to convey the frenetic events and emotions while still embracing the strength and care and security all around. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute, where the procedure was performed. 240 page paperback book. Includes a bookmark and a download of Callaci's 3-song EP featuring the songs "Heart Like a Starfish," "Lonesome Surprise" (featuring JOHN DARNIELLE of MOUNTAIN GOATS), and "Be Positive."   “A true hero’s journey, Callaci’s memoir is layered with symbols along the path to help guide the narrator and reader. A dry, Han Solo-like humor helps us get through the heartbreak. And like a Shakespearean dream, we awaken at the end with newfound joy, cherishing this wonderful life.”—Kevin Glavin, author of Rock Star's Rainblow And All The Things You'll Do!  “For any generation... An astonishing story about how close life is to death. Written in a relatable style...Existential...using street language...Callaci's true story is heartfelt!!”—Claudia Lennear (featured backup singer in the Academy Award wining documentary 20 Feet From Stardom).   “Allen shares his amazing story by locating his personal...
