As a co-editor for Fireside Press, M.C. works like a chimp to provide fine anthologies which delve into the odd and oblique for other writers who are ready to brave cult media waters.

He claims his heroes are Johnny Ryan, Ernest Borgnine and Soupy Sails.

Rate this book
Clear rating
Going to admit, I'm not a poet, but this collection of pieces by Philip LoPresti is nothing short of an assault. This book really works best when you read it aloud through clenched teeth while your voice is tempered by an RP-1 on heavy distortion.
