    1. I received A Guide for the Practical Abductee in a giveaway Thank you E Kristen Anderson for sending me a beautiful signed copy Let me first start out by saying poetry is not a genre I normally read My experience with poetry is limited to Shel Silverstein and whatever boring poems my English teachers have made me read That being said, I enjoyed A Guide for the Practical Abductee.A Guide for the Practical Abductee is a collection of 17 wonderfully written narrative poems that explore the magical, [...]

    2. This is a great short chapbook I saw one of these poems shared on Sundress Publications blog and wanted to read the whole collection Should I call this speculative poetry That always kind of seems to have a nasty ring to it, that if you write about iffy shit you probably won t be taken so seriously Leaving the stigma behind, these poems are great On a visual level they re arranged and put together really interestingly The enjambments and line breaks and spacing are all really well done they have [...]

    3. I won a copy of this very attractive chapbook from the Gooodreads Firstreads giveaway program It s a very slim volume of seventeen poems, printed on paper of excellent quality with a very nice folded cover on heavy stock stitched on, which illustrates a traditional UFO in the night sky The poems are all about topics on the fringe of accepted reality, and run the gamut from the Bermuda triangle to Sasquatch, Ouija boards to unicorns, and all stops in between They illustrate the importance of drea [...]

    4. This Elgin nominated chapbook contains seventeen poems of a paranormal persuasion ghosts, cryptids, the Bermuda Triangle Perhaps these would have appealed to me had I not read the book on the heels of Allie Marini s Southern Cryptozoology A Field Guide to Beasts of the Southern Wild Both chapbooks cover similar territory, but I found Allie Marini s poems moving and powerful That said, I liked several of the poems, my favorites being The Sasquatch and Upon Discovering Crop Circles in Iowa The [...]

    5. These lovely, haunting poems explore the nature of the paranormal, the unexplained questioning the fiction in the term science fiction Each supernatural voice from that of a poltergeist, to a spirit summoned by Ouija Board, to a unicorn is so visceral, so tangible, our hearts are pulled toward the humanness of what some might term monstrous Other poems, from the point of view of humans, search within after encountering these beings Are they real, the humans ask themselves, as real as me Is it an [...]

    6. I adore this little chapbook It s been nominated for the Elgin Award and I ll be reviewing it in Star Line and Amazing Stories in the fullness of time.

    7. In my copy Anderson inscribed I dare you to believe and indeed each poem is a dare to face our fears and to embrace our wonder, to believe in something than what we are told is real.

    8. Filled with oddities and mysteries, this collection craftily spills open with sensory images and intriguing structures So good.
