[image error]


From seaside resorts, cocktail parties and the hearthside comforts of domestic bliss to dive bars on the fringes of unemployment and the disreputable hinge-points where every universe is an alternate universe, Spokes of an Uneven Wheel is a compact, ambitious work of poetry. Due out from Main Street Rag Publishing this July, it’s the culmination of years of work, and decades of...

Watershed by Colin Dodds
"***Received via Goodreads Giveaway***

I thought it started with a bang, then got a little slow. But when it picked up again, I was racing thru it, wanting to see what came next.

Watershed by Colin Dodds
"Watershed by Colin Dodds could, on some levels, be considered a romance. Certainly there are some tender moments between Raquel and the book’s other main character (a snake breeder, luddite and sculptor named Norwood). The story of their burgeonin..." Read more of this review »

“it may sound strange, but I think atheists are the most religious people in the world.”
Colin Dodds, Windfall

“It’s the million-dollar question: How do you get between someone and their self-destruction?”
Colin Dodds, Another Broken Wizard

“Sometimes a streak of bad luck and bad decisions will persist mercilessly for years at a stretch. After a while, it all kind of bounces off you. It still hurts, but you don’t mind it. And you become so uninvested that you don’t even blink when things fall to pieces.”
Colin Dodds, The Last Bad Job
