The October Country | Ray Bradbury
post image
Pickpick

Many of the stories in this collection are actually reworkings of stories from Dark Carnival. However, October Country is a more refined work than its predecessor: the revised stories are stronger, more mature, and more taut, and the later collection contains a lean nineteen stories, cut down from the twenty-seven originally published in Dark Carnival.

Nute Miss reading your posts, Cody. Hoping all is well with you!🙂 2mo

This was a somber, melancholic evocation of death and mortality. It also ended up being a beautiful homage to the French writer Jules Renard.

The book I helped edit and illustrate is available now from Outcast-Press! Check it out!!

This is a collection of short stories by Louise MacGregor. It‘s a provocative look at violence and hatred perpetrated on women and men.

(I also did the cover design)

Fight Club | Chuck Palahniuk
post image
Pickpick

Couldn‘t decide what to read next, so I decided to re-read this. Didn‘t quite pack the same punch (what the hell ever does?) and I found it extremely hard to read now without seeing it as a prophecy in which everything came true except the liberation.

All literature has the potential to burn us alive. And I was left with third degree burns after reading Child Locks by Leia John. She‘s the real fucking deal!

We all suffer. Not all of us, however, have the talent it takes to give meaning to that suffering, let alone the talent it takes to touch the keys the way HLR does here with these five beautifully crafted poems.

I challenge anyone to read these poems and have them not speak to you in profoundly powerful ways. Hoffman is an extraordinarily gifted poet.

I am forever chasing a pre-critical capacity for simple truths, the ability to be moved without thinking. This is why I loved Chere Taylor‘s piece. I am in awe of her talent in being able to deliver such an experience in so few words.

Just finished this wonderful memoir by Stephanie Land. A memoir that, as far as I‘m concerned, serves as a definitive argument that sometimes, a heavy-handed dose of Marxism is exactly what we need. It‘s hard to imagine a surer sign of this than this book.

britt_brooke Loved this one! 10mo
kspenmoll Loved this. When it was launched was able to see & hear her discuss her book with a journalist. Didn‘t I meet two Littens there? @CareBear @Ncostell ?! 10mo
CareBear Yes!! 10mo
Ncostell Yes @kspenmoll that is where we first met! That was a great event too hearing the author speak of her experience in person. 10mo

Today we feature a short piece of fiction from Jory Pomeranz in a story about a disease which uses sentiment in order to perpetuate itself, which in turn, can sometimes force us to abandon our humanity altogether.

New poetry today at A Thin Slice of Anxiety
For me, Wilson‘s poem is a classic example of the extreme exhaustion and weariness of life that echoes throughout human existence.

If you‘re someone who honestly has a hard time "getting " poetry, these poems should speak to you. They say disturbing and terrifying things. I absolutely love them.

My Reading Life is back today with guest Eric Garcia. I‘ve been a huge fan of his for awhile now, especially his book: The Repossession Mambo. I also really enjoyed the film adaptation starring Jude Law and Forest Whitaker.

These are poems which sidle right up beside the reader, pointing us to the things the poet considers most worthy of deep consideration. That the infinite is both nameless and nowhere and that there are vast multitudes that exist within each of us.

A Poverty of Words | Frederick Pollack

The thing I like most about this poem is that Pollack shows us how the refusal to take action, is perhaps the greatest sin a man can commit.

Zimmerman is that type of poet who calmly manages to evoke emotions that, while honest, are not so easily experienced.

As John Krieg says in this eye opening piece: “The motto, “To protect and serve,” is disingenuous at best and untrue at worst when the people they always strive to protect and serve the most are themselves.”
