Check out Nick Mansito’s new tattoo!


Check out Nick Mansito’s new tattoo! Yes indeed that is the BlazeVOX logo with a moving quote from Neruda. Now check out Nick’s new book, Miscellaneous Debris 

Nick Mansito is just a dude – a dude who writes poems every once in a while. He hopes you
enjoy them. His first book, 3rd & 7th, published by BlazeVox [books] in 2009, is a very weird
(in a good way he wants you to know) collection of poems produced through the interaction
of constraint writing and other influences neither he nor I are legally at liberty to discuss. To
pay his bills and save cash for surf trips (and other extracurricular activities like video games
and miscellaneous vices – he didn’t want me to tell you that), he robs banks and moonlights
as a covert CIA operative codenamed The Spulk. He’s mostly known by his birth name, Dick
Bandito. And he has recently secured the position of bass player for a band called Bring Your
Beats, though they are thinking about changing their name to Free Beer. If you are Charlize
Theron, he wants you to know he is single too and doesn’t mind that you have a baby.

Book Information:

· Paperback: 100 pages

· Binding: Perfect-Bound

· Publisher: BlazeVOX [books] 

· ISBN: 978-1-60964-128-3

A new server, a new home, a whole new outlook!!!

Hip Hip Hip!!!

Hurray! We are now working on a new server and able to post without worries. It is a good feeling to be able to bring you some good news and reviews that I could not post before. This is because our old server was run by a bunch of lunkheads. Now we are up and running as we should!

Not only have we moved to a new server, but we also moved house in January. For the year of the Snake, we shed a layer of skin and once again, we are shiny and new. Hurray!

Now with a new micro-review:
Travis Cebula’s Ithaca is a tableau vivant at once stark in its chromaticism and subtle in its narrative precision. One thinks of the Greek Anthology, and were it not for the colors it would seem all of a piece. But this is pure poetry. Cebula is possessed of the most delicate of poetic sensibilities, and of the Muses’ frenzy, ‘with all its most, / exceeding vision and velocity’.
-Gregory Vincent St. Thomasino
