Fomite Publishes Oregon Poet Scott T. Starbuck’s Industrial Oz:
Scott T. Starbuck has a new book, titled Industrial Oz, which Bill McKibben says is “rousing, needling, haunting” and Thomas Rain Crowe claims “just may be the most cogent and sustained collection of quality eco-activist poetry ever written in this culture, this country.” Industrial Oz is available at http://www.fomitepress.com/FOMITE/Industrial_Oz.html.
While the cover art was made by a child, the author warns that the language and themes make it suitable only for high school-age and older.

Around the World of Words
Theo Czuk, novelist, poet and songwriter, explores the craft of writing from the mountaintops of poetry to the lush valleys of the novel and the many inroads that connect the two. Survey the province of the unique tongues spoken by the novel, poetry, and songwriting that makes these disciplines similar, yet unique unto themselves.
Theo’s novel, Heart-Scarred, was written symbiotically with his music (every chapter title in Theo’s novel is a song title from Theo’s musical portfolio). Theo augments his presentation with songs from his critically acclaimed CD, Too Many Shadow, with full concert to follow.
Heart-Scarred has just won the 2014 LARAMIE Book Award for the Literary Western.
