Punk Hostage Press combines the experience that both writers have garnered from years of marginal living, punk rock music scenes, D.I.Y. publishing, editing underground lit/art zines, doing spoken word performances in local settings as well as on the road, living out vehicles and going homeless for the craft when the demand was too much over the years.

Punk Hostage Press is just getting off the ground with the first release in March, 2012, of [[Danny Baker]]'s FRACTURED. Danny's book is a visceral journey through the violence and upheaval he has walked through his whole life, going from one extreme to another and finally finding a voice recently as he has began to share his work with others with a craft that he developed over the years, pretty much in the dark, without much external input. It is a fresh and unencumbered accounting of all the emotional debris that has swept around a life that first found solace and acceptance in the streets of the Los Angeles punk scene in the 1980's and moved to the east coast to hustle on Wall Street to make a living, always keeping the spirit and sound of punk rock music alive in his mind and soul, only to finally find a way of reconciling the past in a lyrical style that is informed by all the struggle his life has seen up until now. The roller coaster ride of winning and losing and winning and losing over and over resonates with those who have faced similar struggles from all walks of life.

The book came about from a chapbook that was put together for Danny's first reading in December of 2011. [[Billy Burgos]] did the cover art and helped with the layout, with [[Melissa Alvarado]] and [[Rafael Alvarado]] helping as well. The chapbook was completed just in time for the reading that night at [[Beyond Baroque Literary Arts Center]] in Venice, CA, and [[Danny Baker]] made quite an impression on everyone in attendance as well as the other writers who were reading that night, [[A. Razor]], [[Iris Berry]], [[Annette Cruz]], [[Dennis Cruz]] with [[Richard Modiano]] hosting and [[S.A. Griffin]] reading in tribute to [[Scott Wannberg]] as well. The end result was that when Iris and Razor planned to start Punk Hostage Press, they felt that Danny's chapbook deserved to be expanded into a book, edited by [[[A. Razor]], keeping the original artwork and design by [[Billy Burgos]], and becoming the first book published by Punk Hostage Press.
