DeLana R.A. Dameron’s new book now available

More good publication news from previous contributors.  DéLana R.A. Dameron, whose poem “Oyster and Pearl” appeared in Inch #8, has a new book out from Red Hen Press. Selected by Elizabeth Alexander as the fourth annual winner of the South Carolina Poetry Book Prize, How God Ends Us is Dameron’s first book.

Word on the street is that you can buy the book from Amazon, which would be just OK, or you could buy the book from the author’s web site, which would mean that your copy would be signed.  Who doesn’t want signed books?  So head to her web site now.

New e-chapbook from Emily Kendal Frey

Emily Kendal Frey, whose gorgeous poem “Airport” graced the pages of Inch #9, has a new collection available from Blue Hour Press.  The e-chapbook, also entitled Airport, collects a series of poems, each entitled– you guessed it– “Airport.”

I would advise to run, not walk, and get a copy of this chapbook, but it’s just a few clicks away.  So get clicking– this is easily my favorite chapbook of the new year thus far.  Airport‘s poems are terse and economical, but build the ambiance of immense spaces, wide-open skies and high-arching airport architecture.

Blue Hour Press invites your comments on Frey’s chapbook, so head over here and let them know what you think.
