Side Effects

Side Effects

Chapbook by Patricia Wixon

"These poems emanate compassion and enhance the way." ~Lawson Fusao Inada, former Oregon Poet Laureate

"In reading Side Effects, I found what I always look for: something unexpected and delightful. As a translator, I am intrigued when poets take chances and risks by diving into exotic languages to make their poetry. For example, in the masterful poem, 'Small Words,' where Wixon writes the lyrical lines, 'Romany glides out like prayers, English falls cold, terse.' This collection is rich in history, both familial and regional. The duty of the poet is to make us look more closely at the familiar world around us, to look at it with a new light. With these poems Patty Wixon has succeeded admirably." ~ arlos Reyes, author of Pomegranate, Sister of the Heart: Poems and Poemas de amor y locura / Poems of Love and Madness: Selected Translations

"In Side Effects, Patricia Wixon quietly weaves sounds and images together, like the Nez Perce woman described in "Stitches at the Museum" whose trade beads are 'secured at intervals with carefully hidden thread.' We find endings in origins and rebirth in endings, as Wixon details the human and natural world around her "to keep the story whole." And the world of the poems in this fine collection is made whole, because observed by a keen eye, with a delicately rendered respect for what is, was, or might have been." ~Lisa M. Steinman, author of six volumes of poetry, most recently Absence & Presence and Carslaw's Sequences

Unbound: Alaska Poems

Unbound: Alaska Poems

Chapbook by Katie Eberhart

Katie Eberhart and her husband Chuck Logsdon lived in Anchorage for a few years; then in 1983 they moved into a Matanuska Colony house, a log cabin built in 1935 near Palmer, Alaska. The house and ten acres became a roll-up-your-sleeves project that lasted for decades. Improving, expanding and renovating the house. Growing vegetables, fruit, and berries. Building fences, and later a ski trail that circled the ten acres of woods. Over the years, Katie worked as a researcher, economist, and data consultant but also kept writing. In 2010, she earned an MFA from the Rainier Writing Workshop at Pacific Lutheran University. Katie's poems and essays have appeared in Cirque Journal, Sand Journal, Elohi Gadugi Journal and other places. In 2011, Katie and Chuck moved to Bend, Oregon where Katie blogs about nature and literature and has realized how much of Alaska and the north she carries with her.

Into the Owl Dream Night

Chapbook by Charles F. Thielman

Raised in Charleston, SC, and Chicago, educated at red-bricked colleges and on Chicago's streets, Charles has worked as a youth counselor, truck driver, city bus driver and enthused bookstore clerk. Having learned much via his travels, Charles now calls Eugene, Oregon home.

Recently married on a Kauai beach, and a grandfather to five joys, Charles continues his inspired work as a poet and active shareholder in an independent bookstore. He also organizes readings at the store. On the boards of the county and state writers organizations, Charles is one in a circle of poets promoting the Poem-Caching/Poetry Box Project. The boxes are like curbside realtor's boxes, but with copies of poems inside for unsuspecting passersby. His poems have appeared in a myriad of national and international literary journals such as The Pedestal, The Oyez Review, Poetry Kanto and uphook press.

The Quizzical Chair

Anthology edited by Laura LeHew

When I decided to do an anthology I wanted a theme, but one that hadn't been done before, one that would stretch us as writers. This is a collection of poems that represent our yearnings and experiences. We have looked inside for inspiration and outside at nature and everywhere in between; the church, the train, declining parents, art, history, design, and card games.

Enough of Daylight by Colette Jonopulos

Enough of Daylight

Chapbook by Colette Jonopulos

What can I say, I like vampire books. I've read them all, Tanya Huff, Charlene Harris, Laurel K. Hamilton, Mary Janice Davidson, and Stephenie Meyer (to name but a few). So when I read Colette's manuscript how could I not publish Enough of Daylight? Deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful, Enough of Daylight captures the struggle between defying our instincts and satisfying our desires. This is a love story with bite.
