A Showcase for Small Presses and New Writers & Poets
June Cover

Daniel Brenner
Fence Books
ISBN: 978-1-934200-43-8
[Work Description]

June takes up the whirlpooling, epic project of Brenner's prizewinning debut The Stupefying Flashbulbs. Narrative emerges despite the "pleasurable obstacles" (as one reviewer called them) of these poems, which, in hallucinatory, luminous, yet spare verbiage trace the obscure appearances of "perfumed people," pioneers all--including one Xi An, a "guardian of paradise"--as they weather a flood, butchery, and "blistering synthesis."
" [...]These poems are written from innocence, not experience. They do not mourn or try to recover a lost world; rather these are the ambivalent voices of pioneers who long for the excitement of life in a lawless country. The music and density of their language remind me of Ceravolo, and the happenings make me think of Cather, although many of the references seem to be Eastern rather than Western [...]"--Aaron Kunin.

Gauguin's Ghost Story

Tony Stowers
[Kindle Format]
[Work Description]

On 8th May 1903, French post-Impressionist painter Paul Gauguin died in a bamboo hut on a tiny volcanic island called Hiva Oa in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Or did he? Gauguin spent his last few days with a witch doctor called Tioka who blessed Gauguin with a protective "spell" but what sort of spell was it? On 3rd January 2008, Tony Stowers who trained at Central School of Speech and Drama, travelled to Pont-Aven, spiritual home of Impressionists in Brittany, France. His plan: to perform his one-man show "Gauguin’s Ghost". At an exhibition in Pont-Aven, Gauguin’s spirit again visits the Breton port and transfers into Stowers’ head. Through alternating first-person conversation techniques, they size each other up with garnish of wit and sarcasm. Slowly their fragile friendship strengthens and together they go about creating the show.
