Introducing a new chapbook, Lurking Exposure, by Sarah Ahmad.

Sarah Ahmad, 22, was born in India and now lives in Pakistan. She considers herself a struggling poet and artist as in her world where life is so fragile, not knowing if you will return alive every time you step out of the house, getting someone to acknowledge your art is a real struggle. Her work has appeared in various e-zines and magazines and that gives her a warm, fuzzy feeling inside. Her chapbooks are Unfulfilled Doubts (2010) from Artistically Declined Press and Chaotic Disillusion (2010) from Calliope Nerve Media.

Introducing a new chapbook, Zigeunertänze, by Adam Henry Carrière.

Adam Henry Carrière is a poet, teacher, and broadcaster who has crashed five states, committed radio in three, frolicked in some fifteen countries, and even played on three Navy ships before Rummy got wise. Recent publications include The Bicycle Review #1, The Smoking Book, The Mayo Review, Counterexample Poetics, Tonopah Review, Juked (2008 Poetry Prize Finalist), and Tattoo Highway.
Born on the South Side of Chicago, Adam now resides in Las Vegas, Nevada, where he has personally bankrolled the renovation and/or expansion of at least four neighborhood casinos, won the Nevada Arts Council Fellowship in Poetry, and publishes Danse Macabre, Nevada’s first online literary magazine. He’s also presented a wide range of papers at the Far West Popular Culture Association / American Culture Association’s annual Conference, and serves on the Editorial Board of Popular Culture Review.

Working on a doctorate (or, working on not being further impoverished and/or disassociated by said pursuit) has not dislodged from him the guilty pleasures of Ian Fleming, bella musica Wien, and Britain’s Hammer Films. His favorite poets are Hughes, Szymborska, and Mozart. Particularly, he aspires to follow on the imaginative trail blazed by the feuilleton of Joseph Roth.

Introducing a new chapbook, Elis Dances, by Hans Raimund.

A gifted translator as well as a writer, Raimund received the Austrian W.H. Auden Translation Prize for his translations of Italian, French, and English authors. In addition to the wide publications of his essays in literary publications and newspapers, Raimund is the author of eight books of poetry and four prose collections. In recognition of his oeuvre, Raimund was awarded Austria's prestigious Georg Trakl Prize in 1994 and the Anton Wildgans Prize in 2004, and he has also received literary prizes in Italy . His books are translated into Slovenian, Bulgarian, Albanian, Italian, and English, including: Hardly the blink of an eye, Words and Spaces, Phoenix, Arizona, 1993; Verses of a marriage, Event Horizon Press, Desert Hot Springs, California, 1996; and Viennese Ventriloquies, Event Horizon Press, Desert Hot Springs, California, 1998. His poetry has been described as "outstanding in its musical quality and its extremely successful blending of classical forms with modern elements."

Introducing a new chapbook, The Dreaming House, by David Chorlton.

David Chorlton was born in Austria and grew up in Manchester, England, home of rain and industry.
