'Of Creatures' Cover

Here is the cover for my poetry collection, Of Creatures, due out in January 2011 from Gold Wake Press:


The image is by none other than elimae editor Cooper Renner. I think it compliments the collection's contents nicely, poems which, to me, feel like an exercise in optimistic existentialism. Big thanks to Cooper, and big thanks to Jared for accepting and publishing this manuscript...

There are several new offerings from the Gold Wake online series, including e-chaps from Nicelle Davis, Counterexample Poetics editor Felino Soriano, Jennifer Greidus, some really amazing visual poems by j/j hastain, Medulla Review editor Jennifer Hollie Bowles, as well as a second installment of Chronology, exhibiting highlights from recent e-chaps.

Big thanks, Andreas. It'll at least be nice to look at if the poems within are awful. I read on your blog you rap? Check out some Failsafe-B, if you get a chance: http://failsafe-b-hip-hop.blogspot.com/
