A year ago, during the Kickstarter campaign to create this magazine, I offered as a reward an omnibus collection of my poetry in ebook form. This week, what I’ve actually released is something better.
Hungry Constellations is my first poetry collection available in ebook format (and it is available in paperback too.) Dominik Parisien sorted through two decades of my poetry to curate the book, with selections from my collections Strange Wisdoms of the Dead and The Journey to Kailash as well as new works. Amal El-Mohtar graciously wrote a warning to readers about the contents — that is, a delightful introduction. Paula Arwen Friedlander created a stunning cover based on the Rhysling Award-nominated title poem, and Elizabeth Campbell of Antimatter Press spent countless tedious hours solving the problems of how to format my crazy concrete poems for iPad and Kindle. My thanks to all these wonderful folks for going above and beyond to make this a book worth giving; and my thanks to my Kickstarter supporters for making the book possible in the first place.
By the way, this is the last of the original rewards I pledged to make for the Mythic Delirium Kickstarter. I hope you’ll check it out.
More news about this and other books of mine to follow this weekend. Don’t touch that dial!
