GCP Lifetime Member Larry Thomas announces the release of a revised and expanded print edition of my chapbook, The Circus, by Blue Horse Press (publisher of the San Pedro River Review).  Several of the twenty-two poems in the collection were first published by Right Hand Pointing in 2008 as an e-chapbook.  The book is available for purchase at Amazon.com:
 http://www.amazon.com/Circus-Larry-D-Thomas/dp/0692626409/ref=sr_1_3

Please find below some kind and most generous comments by Benjamin Myers, Oklahoma Poet Laureate, about the collection.

“For years, Larry D. Thomas has been a contemporary master of the precise image, but with this new collection, we discover that he is also ringmaster and clown, lion-tamer and lion. In poems as well-honed as the knife-thrower’s blade and as minutely accurate as his aim, this exceptional book honors well both its overt subject, the circus, and its implied subject, the making of art. These poems are infused with the high danger of artistic enterprise and should be approached with caution: their stark beauty cuts deep.”

Benjamin Myers, Oklahoma Poet Laureate

GCP Member Weasel Patterson writes: “I am happy to announce that my poetry collection, The Hell Inside Us, is now available! This collection was published through Earl of Plaid, and I can't thank them enough for taking on a project that's really personal to me.”

“The Hell Inside Us is a collection of poetry about the rough spots of life. It’s about the living through bullying experiences, through being discriminated against because you identity [sic] as a member of the LGBTQ community. This collection discusses and identifies issues that are still circulating much of society regarding these topics. The collection also focuses on other sucky aspects of life, such as getting your car repossessed, failed romances and the anxiety and addiction that comes from them. It’s a long story, but it’s one I’m happy to have out.”

Copies are available on Amazon and at my personal website. I’ll also be promoting the book through a few readings here and there. Grab your copy today and take one hell of a ride!
