Judson Hamilton's NO RAINBOW now available!



No Rainbow
Judson Hamilton

Chapbook

"Don't reckon this as Darger-inspired literature or Dahl-hued imaginings. This is Judson Hamilton's No Rainbow, a uniquely intrepid tale about a group of youngsters who seek to expand themselves in a world that is slowly shrinking 'one word, one creature, one color at a time.'"

excerpt:


    Soft thunder rolled outside the window and across the lawn as Miss de Mo began to read from the book:

    This is the tale of a
    Princess who insisted that a boy must exchange his head for another

    The children instinctively tightened their loose circle at this rather foreboding introduction

    stealing glances as if daring one another to show fear

    Violet silently putting her hand in Robert's

    to the quickening accompaniment of his heart

    Martin despite his chubby countenance and bookish leanings

    sat at rapt attention

    as did Maud - (both of them savored storytime with Miss de Mo).

    Wendy and Wanda instinctively moved closer together

    exchanging glances and inspecting one another's expressions for

    imperceptible differences


5.5" x 8.5" Chapbook with hand-pressed, black-inked covers and gray end paper & printed in an edition of 99. Click here for images of the cover.

Dan Boehl's Chapbook Now Available!



Les Miseres et les Mal-Heurs de la Guerre
Dan Boehl


Chapbook

"Dan Boehl's "Les Miseres..." isn't simply another retelling of the recalcitrant history of war - that's been done a thousand times. Instead, scenes of war are run through a cinema reel and played out on a canvas of seventeen poems. Told through every point of view, "Les Miseres..." is an intelligent and thought-provoking broomstick thrown into the spoke of a war debate."

excerpt:


    LA ROUE (The Helm)

    But behind the rich, almost cinematic
    certainties that history has given us
    about the war, concerning the people,
    the relationships, the materials, the
    time frame, the technology, lies an
    impenetrable area of shadow. No one
    has ever explained how a con-
    scientious public allowed this to happen,
    or why.


5.5" x 8.5" Chapbook with hand-pressed, blue-inked covers and decorative inlay paper & printed in an edition of 120. Click here for images of the cover.

$6.50 free shipping in USA/Canada.

Folded Into Your Midwestern Thunderstorm

Chapbook

Folded Into Your Midwestern Thunderstorm is a thunder-slap meant for your cheek. There is a ferocity and a bite to these poems as ripe as the 'Bells, bells, bells / resembling / the ferocity of print ribbon. Double / if you are the responder / my words gut.' Kristen Orser shall reckon!"
