My Cruel Invention - Available for purchase!

After many months of work and preparation, I am thrilled to finally announce the availability of My Cruel Invention: A Contemporary Poetry Anthology, edited by me and published by Meerkat Press.

From it's inception, I've been looking forward to getting this anthology out into the world, featuring poems about or inspired by inventors and inventions both real and fictional. From my introduction:

"I was awed by the seemingly endless number of ways that poets approached the subject. Naturally, there are poems about real inventions -- from clocks to pantyhose to chemotherapy drugs -- as well as poems that conjure fantastical inventions -- such as a contraption for kissing and a happy marriage machine ... Whether invoking humor, irony, historic research, or imagination, the poems in this anthology converse not only with each other, but also with their readers and the world at large, in service to the continued human drive to create solutions -- even to problems we didn't know we had."
