An Ongoing Lack of Spontaneous Combustion
An Ongoing Lack of Spontaneous Combustion is is a collection of poems with a menagerie of sidekicks, hippos and ladybugs, centipedes and giraffes, all on the same sometimes senseless, sometimes surreal, sometimes ecstatic journey.
In Brady Tighe‘s debut chapbook, a young poet ventures to Seattle to see a legendary folk-rock band. Bottling the Lead Singer of the Mountain Goats is a collection of 13 poems about great cities, great bands, and the eternal question of whether or not your ex needs a postcard, or whether or not you should bottle the lead singer of a band just because he reminds you of someone you want to hit with a beer bottle.
Bodies vs., is Adam Zachary‘s debut chapbook, a collection of essays and stories that details experiences of human bodies as insufficient avatars for our souls. Of bodies demanding too much space between ourselves and things that we long to interact with more intimately; including friends, lovers, and their bodies, too. Of our limited senses, of eyes and nerve endings as ineffective conduits of information. Of bodies subjected to injuries or disabilities that interrupt or permanently impede perception. Of bodies too weak to serve as weapons, no matter how willing is the spirit to fight.
