Innsmouth Free Press has announced that my new book DEMONSTRA, "a collection of Weird poetry," will be joining the slate of releases scheduled for next year.
DEMONSTRA, containing poems spanning 20 years, looks at the Lao diaspora through a speculative lens.
As I told them, the framing concept is a meditation on the notion of what an incomplete demonstration – hence the title Demonstra – shows us in a world so often unknowable. Some of you may also see what else I'm doing here.
My Lovecraftian stories and poems have previously appeared on the Innsmouth Free Press website and anthologies, including most recently in Future Lovecraft. Look for DEMONSTRA in the spring of 2013, in fact, specifically around April, to close out the Year of the Nak.
As you know, On The Other Side Of The Eye came out in the year of the Fire Pig/Elephant, in the month of the Metal Monkey. It celebrates its 5th anniversary on Year of the Water Dragon/Nak and 10 on the Year of the Monkey.
DEMONSTRA, now, will come out in the Year of the Water Snake in the month of the Earth Dragon/Nak and celebrate its 5th anniversary during Earth Dog and 10th during the Water Rabbit. This will all come into play later.
Other Innsmouth Free Press titles slated for a 2013 release include Sword and Mythos, Confraternitas and Jazz Age Cthulhu.
