BRUTE SPHINX by SCOTT HAMMER
"In these spacious prose poems, Scott Hammer entangles the mythic with the banal to illustrate how we contend with the now. Part bone and part light, these poems explore what it means to live in a finite body with a want for eternity. They demand love."
Coming July 15th from Solar▲Luxuriance

OPEN READING PERIOD IS NOW CLOSED; THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUBMISSIONS.
Solar▲Luxuriance is accepting chapbook manuscripts & proposals for chapbooks during the month of may. Please email your manuscript in PDF format to info (at) solarluxuriance (dot) com. You’ll get a response by the end of June, if not before. Books chosen will be published before May of 2015, most likely in 2014.
If you’re unfamiliar with our catalog that’s fine, but there is a PDF of every out of print book I’ve released available for free online. In most instances it wouldn’t be a bad idea to check these out. For other benchmarks of what I’m interested in, here’s what I’ve read and thought about books so far in 2014 (listed on Goodreads). I’m obsessed with fragmentation, French écriture of the 60s through the 80s, transgressive narrative (transgressive in both form and content), and the idea of a chapbook conceived of as a book, and not just a collection.
Feel free to email any questions to the email address above. No reading fee, because Solar▲Luxuriance will never, ever charge a reading fee. I look forward to reading all future submissions.
A subscription package is now available.
Chris Moran’s GHOSTLORD is now available. Limited to 26 painstakingly handbound copies. http://solarluxuriance.com
Today in Seattle, S▲L authors Janice Lee & Leif Haven will be reading at this event for Birds of Lace / Spooky Girlfriend Press / Solar Luxuriance. I personally won’t be attending myself, but Leif took some S▲L titles with him if you want to purchase a book (including one copy of the new CHRIS MORAN - GHOSTLORD book which isn’t on the website yet), and a copy of Cassandra Troyan’s THRONE OF BLOOD will be (I think) raffled off!
