You thought we were gone, didn't you?

We finally have a new chapbook up over at Revelator: The Bridge and the River by Timothy Carmody.

This is one that I've been looking forward to publishing since Revelator got going, not just because Tim is a good friend of mine, but because he's been one of the strongest and most interesting poets that I've been able to read and interact with over an extended period of time. The poems in The Bridge and the River have been favorites of mine for a long time, and should be read by as many people as possible. We offer links to our authors' e-mail addresses on the Revelator posts, and I want to make a personal plea to all of my readers that if you read and enjoy Carmody's work, please get in touch with him and let him know. This is a person who should be writing, and is worth encouraging.

(I would like to make explicit that his plea for support of Mr. Carmody is not meant to be in contrast to the other Revelator writers. In fact, one of our primary goals is to provide exposure and support to our writers in a way that will encourage them to continue writing, and to continue to develop as writers. If you find yourself with things to say to any of our writers, please, please do. It's just that Mr. Carmody is a special and particular project of mine.)
