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.
