CARCASS Front Cover Bleed

Mark Ward’s Carcass is the second of four chapbooks we’re releasing in May. Number 10 in Volume 4 of our Editor’s Series. Seth Pennington writes that these poems create “a kind of erotic violence that takes the experience of reading and makes it something like edging . . .”  Eric Norris calls it “a spooky book that takes place in a weird landscape of horror and strange humanity.” Liz Quirke says Carcass is ” a collection humming with moments of quiet fury.” And D.A. Powell calls these poems  “Exciting, mysterious, seductive, frightening.” Available now.
