new releases
This anthology of erasure poetry is a collection based on a social media response to a call to erase Dead Girl Running by best-selling author Christina Dodd. Pages were mailed around the world for poets, writers, and artists to create their own response to the words on the page they were provided.

Don’t let her age fool you. La Santa Madre Tamalera is cooking up trouble. This graphic comic is based on a 666 line epic poem that is anything but ordinary. The first half is all comic. The second half is the poem itself. Perez has created a new horror masterpiece.

Shared Blood centers on the author’s fascination with and ultimate estrangement from his own father as he becomes a father himself. It navigates this space through surreal renderings of lived experience, fabulist narrative, and sometimes litanies of pure language.
