NOON: An Anthology of Short Poems now available
« on: May 09, 2019, 03:45:22 AM »
NOON: An Anthology of Short Poems, which consists of selections (with plenty of haiku) from the issues of NOON published between 2004 and 2017 (including the rare, early print issues), has just been published by Isobar Press. The link below leads to a book description, ordering information and an excerpt with my introduction to the book. Please take a look and consider supporting the press by buying a copy, and if you could spread the word or let me know if a publication you’re involved with might be interested in reviewing the book, that would be very helpful! https://isobarpress.com/titles/noon-an-anthology-of-short-poems/

The anthology is available, among several places, at Amazon US. Highly recommended, not only for the haiku (many names will be known to you, some may not be) but also as a wonderful demonstration  of the liveliness, poignancy, verve and variety of short poetry in general. It works (and plays) as  a model for how to take haiku out of its "ghetto" and place it in conversation with poems that may or may not have been influenced by it.
