From the pen of KJ Hannah Greenberg comes this chapbook of new poetry. Fun, insightful, and lyrical, Fluid and Crystallized focuses primarily on challenging and, only secondarily, on pleasing.

Nathaniel S. Rounds’ newest chapbook by Fowlpox Press, And Your Dreams Will Be Made into Songs that Sell Burgers and Cars, starts full of the pleasure of watching a story, and its strife, unfold pell-mell (as if in a lunatic sidecar)as it draws you into the emotional complexity of the poet’s seemingly simple experimental style. --N. A’Yara Stein
Bread of Tears
By

“Bread of Tears” is at once engaging and unsettling. It’s not a “one read and done” collection. On my first pass through Nathaniel S. Rounds’ work, I found myself wondering just what had happened to Rounds to make him create such disjointed, almost crestfallen characters and imagery.--Patrick Stevens

A chapbook from Nathaniel S. Rounds. "If the world were a forgotten lunatic asylum, with electro-shock rooms that doubled as greasy diners, on the edge of the universe without much hope except for the ringmaster of the last circus… then Nathaniel S.

We are reminded of the philosophers' questioning if life is actually a dream or as Edgar Allen Poe has so beautifully written "a dream within a dream". My suggestion is that you walk and laugh with author down his bizarre path and see the world in all its strangeness. Reviewed by Joan McNerney
