Somewhere Beneath the Stars – Alexandra Seidel. Click here to order.
“Alexandra Seidel’s poetry brims with intoxicating dreams. Nets capture stormclouds and stories, dances blur into woodland hunts, and shadows can be strung into jewelry. Powerful gods confess their troubles and magic whispers from every street corner. SOMEWHERE BENEATH THE STARS captures these cascades of beautiful words in a single vessel. Poetry lovers should drink deep.
Mike Allen, three-time Rhysling Award winner
“Seidel’s poems walk through worlds of epic myth and lush fairy tale, telling us truths both sweet and painful, but always suffused with wonder.”
Julia Rios, Hugo Award-winning editor
The Year of the Witch – Shannon Connor Winward. Click here to order.
With a structure that mimics a New Age guide to the lunar ritual calendar of modern witches, THE YEAR OF THE WITCH offers an eclectic mix of personal, myth-inspired and speculative poetry, woven around a seasonal axis.
“A good and witchy book.”
Cathy Lopez, editor, DEVILFISH REVIEW
“Much of what Winward writes witnesses to the resilience of the female spirit and, in a deep sense, is often an unspoken prayer… Her latest collection, THE YEAR OF THE WITCH, is structured as a ritual or journey into Year or Life. And like Year or Life the book can be begun at any juncture…beginnings become endings and endings infer beginnings. And threading close to the surface of these poems is, as in all art that channels memory and experience, a secret personal history…”
John W. Sexton, author of FUTURES PASS and THE OFFSPRING OF THE MOON
Dame Evergreen and Other Poems of Myth, Magic & Madness – Rebecca Buchanan. OUT OF PRINT
The Bone-Joiner – Sandi Leibowitz. Click here to order.
“Sandi Leibowitz’s poetry collection invites the reader to join lovers and witches, artists and mythical beasts in lands made of jewels and bones. Whether it’s an enchanted library, a ghost-ridden instrument, or the spells and incantations of the hopeful and the damned, it all comes together in a sensuous feast of words. Open this book, and fall headlong into a world more dangerous and beautiful than our mundane realm.”
Jennifer Crow, author of The First Bite of the Apple
“This collection should be part of any speculative poet’s library and I hope to see it nominated for an Elgin Book Award in the near future.”
John C. Mannone, poetry editor of Abyss & Apex, Silver Blade, and Liquid Imagination; author of Apocalypse; winner of the 2017 Horror Writers Association Scholarship
“Shudders of longing and fear reverberate through Sandi Leibowitz’s sumptuous debut collection of poetry. The Bone-Joiner swims deep into the riches of folklore, fairy tale, and myth and returns with haunted eyes, mesmerizing scars and a wry smile. Here you’ll learn the perils of loving a wild child who grows up more wolf than boy, hear the defiance of a man who rejoices in the impractical wing that supplants his arm, and swoon to the song of Old Bone, who knows you’ll be happiest once you’re submerged by his side in the crawfish-teeming river mud. Come join this bloody, enchanting, protean feast.”
Mike Allen, Shirley Jackson Award-nominated author of Unseaming; editor of Mythic Delirium and Clockwork Phoenix
