Ian Donnell Arbuckle

For Lack of Diamond Years
An idiosyncratic collection of short poems - most under 20 lines - where questions lead the way. The poems are a mixed set of free verse, unabashed counting forms like the Hay(na)ku and the Elfchen, and a very minimalist version of John Cage's mesostic form, along with a small number of poems based on colors, and a few that steal freely from traditional American songs.
David Scott Ewers
Stevie Ludich stumbles upon an isolated, word-covered dry lake bed in this cerebral and adventurous novel. Petrichor is a well-paced black comedy with a paranoiac dose of science fiction washed over with ruminations on identity, language and the composition of reality.

Lift Your Right Arm
The five sequences in Lift Your Right Arm are minimalist novels of sorts – short prose that is mostly deadpan and often darkly humorous. The stars of these pieces are Peter Cherches' unique takes on Everyman and Everywoman—dead or alive—navigating a world in which very little is what it seems.
Tales of a Minstrel
Follow the adventures of a minstrel named Finbar as he travels around the countryside telling his stories. Tala Bar tells this tale in nine vignettes, discrete stories that paint a vivid and compelling work.
Closing the Book: Travels in Life, Loss, and Literature
A collection that explores the intersection of literature and life in personal essays about traveling, teaching, reading, writing, living, and dying. Each essay's narrative arc is formed and informed by the act of reading literature that makes a reader feel like the book she's reading was somehow written specifically for her to read in that exact moment.
The Underwater Typewriter
'The Underwater Typewriter' immerses us in the ritual of finding and expressing voice, bestowed by grace, in the face of cruelty, chance, betrayal and loss. It arrives as a collection of weathered shards, gathered and turned, through which light and by implication love, bent and at times nearly occluded, passes kaleidoscopically. The Underwater Typewriter's shifting patterns reveal the variety and range demanded of a poet traversing brutal terrain, tempted by but refusing bitterness. Zegans' poetry inverts Browning, finding human possibility in the broken, and discovers life beyond Joseph Cornell's wistful memory compiled in the collage of remaindered things. Listen closely as you read, for sound travels great distances under water.
