new chapbooks from todd moore and lawrence welsh

hey folks they have been a long time in the works, and i'm happy to announce the arrival of 2 new chapbooks from a couple of america's finest poets.

the first:
love & death & teeth in the blood
by todd moore

todd moore has had more than a hundred books and chapbooks published since 1976. his work has appeared in more than a thousand zines since 1970. his style is unmistakably minimal and noir. he is best known for his long poem DILLINGER, based on the life and times of the legendary depression era bank robber john dillinger. hypnotic when read, cinematic in scope, DILLINGER has been compared to tom mcgrath's letters to an imaginary friend, john steinbeck's the grapes of wrath, and cormac mccarthy's blood meridian. he is one of the major voices of the outlaw poet generation.
love & death & teeth in the blood is his largest poetry collection since DILLINGER.

the second:
walking backwards to santa fe
by lawrence welsh

lawrence welsh was born and raised in south central los angeles but has called el paso texas home since 1994.he is the former lead singer of seminal l.a punk band- the alcoholics.
he is the author of five collections of poetry, including believing in bonfires which i also published by hey sorry folks-it's all sold out. this is his best collection yet.
