How God Punishes
Poetry by
Katerina Stoykova

One of our most popular authors, this always brilliant
and breathtaking Bulgarian-American poet returns
with this award-winning collection, now available in
Poetry by
Richard Carr

"In Richard Carr’s newest collection of poetry,
Fitzpatrick, Joyce’s Bloom—reincarnated as a
painter —is presented, for our amusement and,
perhaps, our edification, through the lens of his
bartender, his 'bastard' of a drinking buddy, his wife,
and, most clearly perhaps, his paintings themselves."
         —George Looney

In masterful narrative verse, Richard Carr uses
multiple voices and perspectives to portray his title
character, the artist Fitzpatrick, glimpsed here only
through others and his work.
The Day You Miss Your Exit
Poetry by
Jacqueline Berger

"Whatever light is shining, was shining, in our lives,
Jacqueline Berger preserves and cherishes in these
brilliant new poems.... Memory is the instrument and
these poems sing with detail and emotional truth and
save us all."
           —Christopher Buckley

These often elegiac poems offer a meditation on
what is past and what is potential.
Poems 2014—2017
Jonathan Greene

The latest collection from a master poet whose career
now spans six decades. Though each exquisitely well-
chosen word here bears the full weight of human
experience, Jonathan Greene's touch is so light and sure
that his poems float on the page, and in our minds upon
reading them.
Gists, Orts, Shards
A Commonplace Book
Enlarged & Revised
Jonathan Greene

"Greene's book is testimony to a mind ripened by a
lifetime of reading—but it's also a fascinating (and
sometimes startling) symposium open to all."
                     —Robert West

This latest addition to Greene's series collects his
previous two volumes and adds much new material.
Poems by
Vickie Cimprich

Contrary Creek runs through Eastern Kentucky and
through our imagination in this new collection from a poet
known for verse informed by scholarship and infused with
Hush Candy
A poetry chapbook by
Missy Browson

Hush, Candy is a marvelous collection, full of fun, sass,
and splendid rebellion.”
                     —Kathleen Driskell

“This is a gorgeous first collection for Missy Brownson—
one I will recommend often.”

                     —Kelly Moffett
prison recipes
A poetry chapbook by
Jeremy Paden

“These poems are urgent and unflinching as they
interrogate humanity in the face of horror.”
                  —Bianca Lynne Spriggs

Jeremy Paden takes us into the man-made darkness of
political oppression in Argentina and Chile, and through
poems describing the means by which bodies and souls
are sustained, he also celebrates the triumph of human
dignity in the face of brutality.
Lucky Talk
26 Short Poems by
Jeff Worley

The title is borrowed from William Stafford, who
described poems as “pieces of talk, savored and
sustained.”  These poems from award-winning author
Jeff Worley are just that, and his readers are in luck to
savor and be sustained by them.
No More Poems
Poetry by
F. Keith Wahle

“F. Keith Wahle’s No More Poems is an heroic
Whitmanesque exercise in celebration, as he looks at the
ranges of things poems can be about, present, future, and
past...”  — David Schloss

In this brilliantly satiric, breathlessly paced, often
hilarious enumeration of all the things about which poems
will no longer be written, the ultimate “list poem”
transforms into a litany of supplication for the sake of
poetry, of culture, and ultimately of life itself.
Reasons for the Long Tum
Poetry by
Sara Cahill Marron

“Sara Marron writes a startling poetry for our disjointed
times, one that moves beyond the clichéd and confining
limits of poetry, but also optimizing poetry’s virtues on
authentic voice, sound, and wisdom.”
            —Stephen Paul Miller

Like the Duchamp painting that inspired it, this is a work
that shatters conventions and defies definition.  That it
arrives from a first-time author is even more cause for
celebration, a hopeful sign of the enduring power and
potential of language in the service of humanity in dark
times and places.
The Bean Can: A Book
A Novella by
Steven R. Cope

“Cope has an affinity with Faulkner and Flannery O’
Connor, but his genius is all his own. Don’t miss this
                                          —George Ella Lyon

When Agile Hess goes missing, his mother asks his
childhood friend Hills to search for him. The ensuing
quest takes us through memory and myth, comedy and
tragedy, all against a backdrop of the land and people of
Eastern Kentucky, portrayed in lovingly lyrical language.
