DEMONSTRA 30% off at Innsmouth Free Press until August 31st

My 2013 collection of poetry, DEMONSTRA is a nominee for the Elgin Award of the Science Fiction Poetry Association.

To celebrate, my publisher, Innsmouth Free Press is reducing the cost of DEMONSTRA until the end of the month if you go here and buy it directly from them.

DEMONSTRA features all-new poems as well as work that has appeared in Lakeside Circus, Strange Horizons, Innsmouth Magazine, G-Fan Magazine, Expanded Horizons, Angry Asian Man, Lontar, The Missing Slate, Buddhist Poetry Review, and Kartika Review. Two poems were nominated for a Rhysling Award while the poem, "Full Metal Hanuman" won the 2014 Readers Choice Award from Strange Horizons.

DEMONSTRA features several original illustrations by Lao American visual artist Vongduane Manivong.

"In the depths, half-hidden under still waters, await strange and vicious creatures …. Cthulhu, Godzilla and nagas mingle in DEMONSTRA, a speculative poem collection which assembles 20 years of work by Bryan Thao Worra. DEMONSTRA is a book of things glimpsed out of the corner of the eye. It is about a reality that can never fully be demonstrated, authenticated, dissected, for certain visions always remain in shadows."

"Bryan Thao Worra is the first Laotian American to receive a Fellowship in Literature from the United States Government’s National Endowment for the Arts. He received the Asian Pacific Leadership Award from the State Council on Asian Pacific Minnesotans for Leadership in the Arts in 2009. His previous books include On The Other Side Of The Eye and Touching Detonations. He was a Cultural Olympian during the 2012 London Summer Games representing Laos. He’s a professional member of the Horror Writer Association and a regular contributor to Innsmouth Magazine."
