Sideshow Small Books

Sideshow Media Group offers a series of small books of poetry that is a tribute partially to the Pocket Poets Series that featured Allen Ginsberg’s Howl and a host of others. Lawrence Ferlinghetti launched the series  in 1955 to be sold at his City Light’s Bookstore in San Francisco, and is still inspiring minds all over the planet.


These books are all available on Amazon and you can click on the links below to buy any of them.

Here is one poem featured in “Hollywood Boulevard” :

Block One 6901 Greta Garbo


Dark and mysterious, the beauty of Camille

out of the shadows and onto the reel

Flesh and the devil “I vant to be alone”

her star is silent, her fame has grown

Anna Christie, the Oscar was close

I walked by and heard her ghost

Never again was one so pure

Never again was one so sure

Days of the silents, she broke the hearts

Talking in pictures, Greta departs…


Dharma Angels

Sideshow Media Group has just released my latest work of poetry- DHARMA ANGELS


It is for sale on Amazon and I want to give you an idea what this book contains and what you could expect. 

“There is no single word in Western language for “dharma” and certainly not “dharma angels”, so I studied them all and came up with my own definintion: human behaviors, principles, or things that seem necessary for the order of nature, living creatures, religious beliefs, family structures, and music on an individual level to go forward. Without such things we shall all surely perish.”  – John K Bucher

The third book entitled “California Beat Poetry”, the poems highlight some of the people, places, things and ideas that fascinate me. I decided to ignore the weeds around me and pick the flowers I saw and now share them with you in this collection. Over the next few weeks I will share some of them on this blog. As personal appearance dates become firm I will post these as well. In those I do a live read of many of the poems and will autograph copies sold there. 

I dedicated this book to my mother.

“This little book of poems is dedicated to the memory of my mother-Muriel Joyce Bucher (1930-2016). She is one of those missing dharma angels who is not still among us yet is still very much loved.”
