The newest issue of the Lummox journal landed in my mailbox this week, and it’s a big one. It offers poems from over 170 writers this time around, plus a slew of interviews and essays. I’ve barely made a dent in the thing myself, but so far it’s a great read. RD Armstrong, the editor, put a hell of a lot of work into this.
There’s stuff in there from favorites of mine like Frank Reardon, Alan Catlin, RL Raymond, April Michelle Bratten, Rob Plath… Oh, and I’m in there too, did you guess? My piece is called “You Remind Me of Philadelphia,” reminiscing about the day my car stereo got stolen (along with my copy of The Queen is Dead by The Smiths). That was a bummer.
Head on over to the Lummox Press website and order your copy now! And if you missed it, consider picking up a copy of #1, which came out last year. And maybe some of the other titles from Lummox Press. They’ve put out some good stuff–if you don’t like Henry Denander’s The Accidental Navigator, well, I’m not sure we can be best friends anymore.
