8. Industrial Madness (2nd ed.)

Citation (Chicago): Miettunen, Ceramic, Charles Bukowski, Scott C. Holstad, and Mika MiettunenRendezvous: 1:93. Vanttaus On: Rendezvous, 1993. Print. (Original work published in 1991 by Sivullinen). [Note. This book would be considered an Omnibus as per general definition found in ISFDB because it is a publication containing multiple works, at least one of which had been previously published as a novel, anthology, collection or nonfiction. Technically not an anthology (they historically feature more writers and unpublished work), it usually features one or perhaps a few authors while containing some previously published independent work. The term is frankly more grey and fluid that those used for other types of publications. In this case, the journal Rendezvous (Rendezvous’ssa in Finnish) republished my small poetry collection Industrial Madness, originally published by Helsinki-based Sivullinen in 1991. My small collection was published in book form in 1993 with two other authors: the editor Mika Miettunen and the great Charles Bukowski.]

    1. Scott C. Holstad, the fortunate recipient of this esteemed honor, has found himself repeatedly listed in any number of annual Who’s Who-type reference/biographical books, throughout his life, most of which one is encouraged to purchase. However, said recipient, has historically been less impressed with many honors than some and has never been particularly interested in this kind of honor. To satisfy any curiosity, he did purchase one such book that may have been a Who’s Who of Writers during the late 1980s, saw the expected and was sufficiently satisfied to never feel compelled or obligated to purchase any more in the future. So too with this magnificent honor. Words escape me, but the recipient is almost embarrassed to post this honor on this webpage for fear readers/viewers will be impressed with the notion that Mr. Holstad’s ego may be in a state of disrepair if he feels the need to appear to “brag” about such a rare and impressive honor, yet the uniqueness of this particular titled honor and what it represents was too great to pass up, ultimately, so thus it is listed for all to see…

    1. Review by GP Lainsbury, VOX Issue 146, University of Calgary, April 1996.
      1. Excerpts: “Scott Holstad is a hardworking poet whose [new] book has just been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in poetry… Holstad’s poems are predominantly voice driven — and that voice is often filled with the anger of moral outrage. But Holstad’s poems are just plain angry… Places also announces some new directions for Holstad’s work — some poems reveal a quieter, more contemplative aspect of his voice… But this is not to say that Holstad has gone soft–not by any stretch of the imagination… Ultimately, for Holstad, as for Bukowski, “The poem is the / crutch, the gun, the / good drink.” Need I say more?
  11. Holstad’s poetry … has received much praise. His work is described by one critic as “brassy and strong.” According to The Hawaii Review, “Holstad’s poetry is reminiscent of the Beat Movement and has a Whitmanish-Ferlinghetti street feel… Michael Bugeja from Writer’s Digest Magazine wrote, ‘I enjoy Holstad’s poems and appreciate their style.’ A prolific poet, Holstad has also found the time to get married, hold down a job as editor of TSI Publications in Los Angeles and study computer engineering at UCLA. Also, he gives poetry readings in many states, especially in California.”

      1. “Why working so hard? A) I’m a very hard worker, highly motivated. B) I’ve been promoted three times so far and my pay HAS increased by about 40% since being here. C) My boss was fired and they gave me his job IN ADDITION to mine ‘temporarily‘ [approaching a year now] and the work had to be done. D) I haven’t yet learned to say ‘No.’… I’ve turned down so many other opportunities, I’m kicking myself in the rear right now. However, things look pretty good. I’ve got four or five good possibilities on the horizon over the next week or two. We’ll see… I’ve also wanted to stick around cause I’m spoiled here. I order library books for myself whenever I want, no questions asked, regardless of price. I get whatever hardware I want, software, etc. They send me to conferences, conventions, school. They pay all of my professional dues (and I think I belong to something like 15 professional associations), I get great benefits, comp time, 401K’s good, stock’s doing great, it’s close to where I live, I get to build my own department and shape it in my image (and I’d probably get to add 3 more within the next 6-9 months). I have major responsibilities. I interface with the CEO and SR VPs on a regular basis on large, enterprise-wide projects. I wouldn’t get that at a lot of other companies….”

  22. Unlikely Stories Presents Scott Holstad
    1. When poetry focuses on the more sinful, cruel, and pathological side of human nature, we typically refer to it as “dark.” I wouldn’t describe Scott Holstad’s poetry that way. His works are so violent, angry, and self-effacing that they seem to transcend darkness; they are so engorged with pain that questions of morality and immorality seem irrelevant. Despite his recent Pulitzer nomination, Scott remains active on the small press circuit, which is odd, because you’d think most small presses would be afraid to print this stuff.
      1. — Jonathan Penton, Unlikely Stories, circa 1998-1999.

    1. Caffeine Magazine 1993-1998
  25. A cool, enjoyable, 10-ton light, flighty, dead-serious, humorous, sad collection of coffee-shop pennings and curt observations of humans dancing in their events, the raw, tired, hunkered-down spectacles of their existences – or is it a singular, shared endurance test the human race faces as a unified bundle of suction-cupped tentacles? Whores seen from a distance with a microscope, and wrestling with the bent-on-chaos landcapes of USA, Holstad’s language portrays the otherwise mundane with fresh and engaging word-plotting.
    1. Review of Scott C. Holstad‘s NEVER-ENDING CIGARETTES by Christopher M, First Class Magazine vol. 12, 1999, p. 46.
  26. Holstad’s work is brassy and strong.
    1. Laurel Speer, poet and author of 25 books, reacting to Never-Ending Cigarettes.
  27. Pay attention. Exactly this lesson Scott lays out line by insightful line in his newest chap. Beginning and ending in the confines of coffeehouses, he points out that caffeinated moments of conversation and meditation can only grow by feeding them with life experience. Scott then takes the rest of the book to describe and analyze life as he sees it in the big city… It all keeps him sane and able to sleep at night, making for a guy with something interesting to talk about.

  63. This anthology is a compendium of the best poetry published in those Little Red Books from 1998 to 2008 and, if you just simply happened upon THE LONG WAY HOME on a bookstore shelf and if you are like me, you’d be unable to resist reaching for this volume. It’s one of the most attractive anthologies of poetry I’ve seen in awhile. The cover is set off in a stark black at top and bottom with a fire engine red swath across the middle. This is the kind of anthology which appeals to the primal instincts beginning with cover design and following through with the contents. And, if you think this is an exaggeration, try this poem byScott Holstad.”

The Authors Guild on stance on COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT [as well as related instances of IP, IP theft, etc.]

The Authors Guild is the nation’s oldest and largest professional organization of writers.

The Guild defends and promotes the rights of all authors to write without interference or threat, and to receive fair compensation for that work. We advocate for authors on issues of copyright—a right enshrined in Article 1 of the Constitution, guaranteeing authors the right to own and profit from their work. We fight for fair contracts. We work with Congress to make sure authors are treated fairly in tax law. We fight piracy. We push back against the “information wants to be free philosophy” that would impoverish authors in the name of free digital content. The Guild vigorously represents authors’ concerns in Washington. We educate and advise Congress on legislation that would help—or harm—authors. We develop and shepherd legislation. When necessary, the Guild takes to court those corporations and other malefactors who have trampled on the rights of authors or taken their work without permission, winning millions in compensation.

Scott C. Holstad has been a professional member of The Authors Guild since 1993, nearly 29 years as of the date of this writing.

“Where We Stand:” The Authors Guild

  1. Copyright
    1. including“Fair Use”
  2. Piracy
  3. Controlled Digital Lending (CDL)
  4. An Open Letter to Internet Archive and Other Proponents of “Controlled Digital Lending
  5. Stance/Update on Open Library — [Guilty of “flagrant violation of copyright law.”]


Scott C. Holstad intends to start compiling and publishing lists and screenshots here of “Libraries” (generally online) that distribute any of Mr. Holstad’s works because, per the Authors’ Guild stance on such Libraries, as “legitimate” libraries will have purchased authorized electronic copies/formats in order to “loan” for a specified short duration before copies’ due date arrives and copies expire. Thus, “borrowing” or otherwise accessing any such work online to read “immediately” is likewise viewed as copyright infringement regardless of intent or any other variable. More information at the Authors Guild site.

Second, Scott C. Holstad intends to start compiling and publishing lists and screenshots here of “bookstores,” shops, stores, etc., offering any of Mr. Holstad’s work for sale or for download or access via a subscription business model or any other regardless of type. Another related list will include screenshots of pure “Pirate” sites where one can simply download anything of Mr. Holstad’s in a myriad of formats, often for free, all of it illegally, much of it sources outside the legal boundaries of the United States. Efforts will be made to shut these sites down while, at a minimum, get any mention of or access to any of Mr. Holstads’ works permanently eliminated.


COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT of Scott C Holstad‘s Work — Any and All for Which He Holds Copyright [Which should entail everything he has created, whether published, displayed., or not as Mr. Holstad will give or sell one-time publication rights and on occasion, reprint rights to the same publication/entity. Works published or appearing elsewhere online (or anywhere else) without his knowledge, permission and his retention of copyright do not have permission to publish such and are doing so illegally and subject to litigation. Those providing copies or versions of any of Holstad’s books, papers, poems, reviews and everything else of his creation regardless of whether work displays his name, for any reason or compensation (i.e., free (“loans,” give-aways) or financial compensation of any amount

  • Format. Only two items of Mr. Holstad’s books, booklets, chapbooks, research, scholarship, etc., was or has ever been published with Mr. Holstad’s documented agreement/permission, hence legally, online, in a digital format or any other format other than tactile, i.e., paper for book or journal, etc., These are:
    • Byron’s Biography: Don Juan and Byron’s Existential Angst. Published online in The Nieve Roja Review, vol. 5, 1999, produced by Colorado State University. The journal’s published guidelines state every author is providing one-time publishing rights and otherwise maintains their copyright, and in one or more locations on each publication, the bottom of the page will show the copyright symbol beside the authors’ name.
      • Despite the fact that no one except Scott C. Holstad may lawfully publish or distribute this paper elsewhere, version are found throughout various Internet sites, available for download in numerous digitial formats such as PDF, EPUB, txt, doc., etc. Aside from the fact that none of these entities have the legal right to provide copies at all, the paper was published in HTML format online, and any other format available for download or in any other form, never had permission to convert and provide said paper and are thus alleged guilty of copyright infringement against Scott C. Holstad and/or any variation of Mr. Holstad’s name.

COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT of Scott Holstad, Scott C Holstad. Scott Holstead, Scott C. Holstead or any other variation of the Scott C Holstad name, reputation, literary reputation, scholarship, research, published books, booklets, papers, articles and/or anything else that Scott C Holstad holds Copyright for and/or is Creator, etc., who was never consulted, informed, asked, requested, negotiated, etc., use of any of his work in any format…

[As there is so much present research going on in so many areas — I (Scott) have always had a bad tendency to spread myself too thin, so the research alluded to isn’t merely regarding this site or this topic, but many others as well — I have been gathering a number of different types of piracy, theft, copyright infringement, illegal online “library” loaning (as in the author was never compensated and some well known such libraries have violated one item loaned out at a time policies so that as many as want digital copies may have them with no control over what may be done with them, etc…). The point is I want to go ahead and post a couple of initial minor copyright infringement or just plain pirate sites, links, etc., involving several of my books and/or papers because I feel like I’ve been waiting too long. This is a long-term project, so I’d like to get underway before it’s complete, if that’ll ever even be possible.]

In No Particular Order…

I. Three (3) arbitrary pirate sites allowing two of my books to be downloaded in a number of formats — none ever legally created in such formats — by anyone, anywhere without my knowledge, consent or compensation. As quickly as these sites appear, they disappear, then reappear at a different URL within a day or two. The two books are Artifacts and The Napalmed Soul.

Three different literary “pirate” sites allowing anyone to download copies of two books by Scott C. Holstad: 1) The Napalmed Soul and 2) Artifacts

 

II. A pirate site apparently located — as a number seem to be — on a Google Sites website. This is offering downloads of my 208 page $20 book, Cells, in formats that the book was never legally created or licensed to modify. Naturally no knowledge, consent or certainly compensation/royalties. Nice… In my first two screenshots, this makes three of my books available illegally on four websites.

III. Mewsie.org. I’ve never heard of them, like most of the pirate sites and outfits, or copyright infringers or whatever the proper term is. I’ve been so busy researching in numerous areas outside of my writing career and literary presumed criminals that I only take screen shots when I run across illegal, illicit, bogus sites online giving away or selling my books, papers, research, etc., ALL without my knowledge or consent, none of whom ever contacted me, none of whom (of course) are compensating me. The lawyers WILL be hitting the touchable ones, including a major alleged legit company in the US which Wikipedia describes as legit while also including a section on “controversy” in which they’ve apparently been found to be offering (student) customers research papers by actual scholars like myself, presumably for pay from the customers, while claiming ignorance of any wrong doing. They demand proof of “alleged” copyright ownership and hence copyright infringement via their company. Well, currently they’re selling TWO of my published papers in peer reviewed scholarly journals, both published before this company existed, both with more evidence of legitimacy than this company could ever provide for itself. Indeed, I believe one of them has been used in a major textbook for years and both have been cited in other scholarship, again, before this company ever existed. I disagree I have to prove shit. The proof is out there in spades, taking 3-5 minutes to find ample examples, so I feel this company should prove to ME why they aren’t fucking criminals! I intend to be calling their general counsel in the new future and giving them an ultimatum, which they’ll probably ignore. Then I’ll contact the Authors Guild legal department for only the second time in 29 years and have them pursue this. This is one of the reasons the Authors Guild exists and their legal department has long had a great track record. This company is apparently quite big — over 1,000 employees — but I don’t care. While I obviously want the small sites shut down, they might be but they’ll pop up again elsewhere like cockroaches. This one? I’d love to sue them out of existence. Their website lists all of their major officers and I don’t know whether to let them know to prepare for a massive lawsuit or to just hit them with a surprise. I’ll be consulting the Authors Guild.

The point of that long paragraph is that company is really the only one I’ve researched, and I’ve researched it quite extensively. So the ones I’ve been putting up and will for a bit until I get time to research and some of these get much more complicated, will be largely unknown to me. Ah, just took a quick peek. There are a number of review for this Mewsie.org site, most of them with the question of are they a scam in the titles. Some give it good marks but those are solely because they detect no malware and those reviews have nothing to do with this site providing essentially stolen material for profit, as in criminals. Other reviews I found did say it was a scam site, included the decent malware bit but also brought up the trust element, as in they’re not trustworthy.

I have other things to do, so I’ve got to upload this screenshot and move on, but I want to mention one interesting — and personally infuriating thing. This is the only site I’ve ever seen in my life offering “endless cry of the dead and dying,” attributed to me, published in 1992, as you’ll see on the screenshot, along with the opportunity to get the book in many different digital formats. The question I have is how/where did they get this, because I don’t believe they actually have it — they must be creating fakes. Why? I not only do not have a copy myself, but I NEVER have! Moreover, I do not believe this is something that was EVER published, because I know the publisher — they published a legit book of mine about the same time and there was never any discussion about others, nor any mention of this title or name. Additionally, no contracts, marketing, reading tours, personal copies given to me and I ONLY FOUND OUT ABOUT THIS ALLEGED BOOK THIS YEAR — 2021 — BY FINDING IT LISTED ON WORLDCAT UNDER MY NAME and I have no damn clue how or why, but I assert most ardently this was never published legitimately as a book or anything of that nature, I’ve never owned a copy, and have never SEEN a copy and never even HEARD of this alleged 1992 book until 2021! So how did this outfit get a copy of a nonexistent book the author never wrote, never submitted, was never published by the published it’s attributed to, no one has ever mentioned it, had a copy, and the author (me) has remained completely ignorant of its existence for roughly 30 years. Thus, in my opinion, not only is this outfit potentially guilty of alleged copyright infringement but of damn forgery and who knows what else. And when we’re talking forgery, that’s a crime that the feds prosecute, as opposed to civil litigation for copyright infringement. I also happen to know over 100 US Department of Justice professionals, including directors, C-level executives, the senior investigator in the country, and the temporary top two in charge during the administration transition — both of whom are still there. In other words, prison seems like a good option to me for this outfit. However, that’ll have to wait and in the meantime I’ll post this very unique screenshot of something I’ve never seen before. I’m almost tempted to “buy” a copy to see what the hell they’re selling in my name. Here it is…

The alleged book as found in numerous catalogs around the world, titled endless cry of the dead and dying by Scott C. Holstad and according to the library catalog entries, published by Big Head Press in 1992. A book/document/etc. that I, the “author” have never seen, never had a copy of, nor ever heard of for close to 30 years after its alleged publication — not until 2021. I’m anxious for this outfit allegedly providing it to experience some legal action and hope to pursue such when I finally find the time.

IV. Another pirate site that looks pretty identical to the first one(s) I posted. These seem to breed like rabbits. This one is offering downloads of Never-Ending Cigarettes, my 5th book/work that I’ve displayed here of pirates, thieves and “copyright infringers” illegally and unethically making money off my back and my work and screwing me in the process.
A fraudulent ad for one of my books, Never-Ending Cigarettes. Whoever they are, they never sought permission, don’t have permission, are stealing from me by selling my work while giving me nothing, and they’re guilty of copyright infringement since I hold the copyright, it literally cannot be in the public domain, thus essentially meaning they can reasonably be called criminals by those who wish to do so. This is from January 2022.
