The DEMONSTRA Manifest

Today's the final presale for DEMONSTRA, a collection of Lao American speculative poetry including artwork by Vongduane Manivong coming out in December from Innsmouth Free Press.

In addition to the appendix, illustrations, and other extras, here's an overview of the poems that are included, drawing on over 40 years of the Lao Diaspora through the lens of the horrific, the fantastic and the imaginative, including the work of writer H.P. Lovecraft. Several of the poems have appeared internationally and in journals such as The Missing Slate, Strange Horizons, Asian Pacific American Jorunal, Expanded Horizons, Lakeside Circus, Bamboo Among the Oaks, G-Fan, and Innsmouth Magazine.
