I’m happy to announce that FREAKCIDENTS is officially a finalist for the 2005 Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in a Poetry Collection!
FREAKCIDENTS (think “freak+accidents”) is a series of character studies of wild mutants and crazy sideshow attractions. This title has always been one of my personal favorites. You can still read some excellent reviews and sharp literary criticism about the book online in Sidereality, Strange Horizons, FeoAmante.com, and Chiaroscuro.
Shocklines Press still has copies of this limited edition book available in an affordable trade paperback and a short run of very special signed/lettered hardcovers. UPDATE, 4/14: Shocklines is offering 30% off the softcover for a limited time!
Congratulations to all the Bram Stoker Award Nominees, especially my fellow poet nominees: Gary Crawford, Dan Shields, and Charlee Jacob.
