I'm proud to say that my poem, “The many deaths of the wives,” about the 1800s actor M. B. Curtis and his wife Marie, was nominated for a Pushcart Prize by the editor of Likely Red, where the piece was first published. For the uninitiated, the Pushcart Prize is an annual anthology compiled by veteran editors who read and review thousands of pieces submitted from editors of other presses. Every press in the world is invited to submit their best pieces from the calendar year for consideration for the award, and Likely Red chose to nominate my poem. You can see the nomination announcement HERE: http://www.likelyred.com/awards.

Today at The Rumpus, I review author +Taylor Brown's FALLEN LAND and give a brief history of Sherman's March to the Sea and the Burning of Atlanta and how that all plays into the environment of Brown's book.

I don't usually get so fully behind other authors' books, but this one simply cannot be ignored.  Be sure to have Eric Shonkwiler's "Above All Men" on your 2014 book list, because you will seriously not want to miss this promising up-and-coming writer of post-collapse and ruination fiction, as stark, bare, and brutal as Cormac McCarthy, honest and full of depth as Faulkner.  Shonkwiler is a voice not to pass up, one that will last for decades to come and will feel as fresh and vital as it does right now.  You can pre-order this beautiful, unrelenting novel today for only $1 down, which earns you 20% off the cover price of any book/eBook format upon its March 2014 release.  I urge you to do so.  You will not be disappointed.
