About Pancake Press
Pancake Press was founded in 1972 when a monthly series of poems called The Moon Books was begun. The series lasted for ten years, encompassing 120 manuscripts. About twenty have been published.
The Press at first published only the work of Patrick Smith, the publisher, but eventually enlarged its scope to include works by Jean Carr, David Derus, Stephen Dunning, John Logan, and David Ray. The last book published by the Press was a catalog of oil paintings by Patrick Smith entitled LIFEnearDEATH — Portraits from a Hospice.
The works published before 1990 have hand-sewn bindings, and all books published by Pancake Press are listed in Browker's Books in Print. The catalog and several of the poetry books are still in print and available for purchase, but the Press is not publishing new works at present.
