Poems by CASH COMPSON
“People Scare Me is a snow globe at rest on a Taco Bell wrapper. But the snow is crushed Ambien, the trees are the woods you smoked pot in back home, and the figurines are all bruised with blue jeans, wearing tacky makeup. There’s no money here, but there’s love. Cash Compson’s collection will leave you gutted but hopeful—it will make you go outside.”—SHY WATSON, author of Horror Vacui
A Novelty by BRIAN ALAN ELLIS
Serving as a somewhat companion piece to such literary classics as Letters to Wendy’s, Jack Handey’s Deep Thoughts and one of those books of Chuck Norris facts, Hobbies You Enjoy is a heartbreaking yet comical character study highlighting a person’s yearlong emotional unraveling through the work they resent, the family trauma they endure, the substances they abuse, the loneliness they embrace, and of course, the HOBBIES THEY ENJOY.
“Ellis knows exactly the right number of words he needs to make you feel something you didn’t feel before you read them…”—CHARLENE ELSBY, author of Violent Faculties

A Novel by JOSHUA MOHR
Hal, an Afghan war veteran, begins to hear a voice telling him to go “home”—to a castle, in Scotland. But Hal has never been to Scotland. So whose voice is it? What does it want? And why is it calling Hal “home”? What follows is a surrealist road trip story, part Heart of Darkness and part bipolar Guardians of the Galaxy. In Farsickness, Joshua Mohr spins a picaresque, hallucinatory yarn like only he can, as Hal and the reader journey deep into the human soul.
“This book is like driving a Ferrari through a funhouse and then smashing through the windshield into another realm of existence. In other words, it’s what a book should be.”—BEN LOORY, author of Tales of Falling and Flying
