A Zen Book of Hours
A Zen Book of Hours (August 2010)
Frederick Franck - Author

“When at seventeen I had become a medical student in Holland, my eye fell on a slim volume that carried in large yellow characters the title ZEN. This was in 1926, when Zen was still unknown in the West.

“Zen has been to me that which brings us into intimate contact with the world around us and, at the same time, with ourselves. This book, a revised edition of Echoes from the Bottomless Well,cam...(Read More)

Zen Echoes
David Rothenberg - Author
Sam Hamill - Foreword by

“It is astonishing how thousand-year-old riddles are brought here to evocative poetic life. David Rothenberg converts them into contemporary verbal music, an Arcanum, a profound secret, a mystery without intellectual solution.” — Frederick Franck, author of The Zen of Seeing and The Buddha Eye

Much as Coleman Barks breathed new life into the work of the great Sufi poet Rumi and r...(Read More)
Cathay (August 2010)
Translations and Transformations
Heinz Insu Fenkl - Author

Heinz Insu Fenkl’s Cathay is a complex interweaving of fiction, translation, scholarship, and transformative writing. It includes new translations of the three luminaries of Tang Dynasty poetry: Li Po, Tu Fu, and Wang Wei—but that is only to whet the appetite. The volume also features the opening of the seventeenth-century Korean Buddhist classic Nine Cloud Dream, by Kim Man-jung, an emulation of a horrific yet ...(Read More)
Charlie (August 2010)
Abraham Burickson - Author

Abraham Burickson’s chapbook Charlie is an exploration of what it means to find oneself living without an instruction manual in a world filled with strangers. The poems follow Charlie and Sal, two very particular Everymen, as they navigate the emotional and intellectual straits of their lives, seeking meaning, pleasure, and some sense of self. The road is treacherous: pronouns jumble, rhythms overwhelm, and the intensity of se...(Read More)
Diary of a Vagabond
Diary of a Vagabond (August 2010)
Song Yong - Author
Jason Park - Translated with an introduction and notes by

Song Yong is not one of the more celebrated writers in Korea but more of an outsider looking in on the mainstream writing establishment in Korea. His work has never seen commercial success, nor is it well known in Korea, although he is respected among prominent literary critics. The lack of interest in Korean literature in North America makes it difficult to find a publishing venue for “out-of-the ordinary” fiction such as Song Y...(Read More)
Enneagrammatic Improvisations
Enneagrammatic Improvisations (August 2010)
Frederick Bauman - Author

The poems in this volume are experimental in nature. They came out of a study of the enneagrama symbol best described in P. D. Ouspensky’s In Search of the Miraculous. While looking for a way to experience the laws expressed in the enneagram, Frederick Bauman devised a poetic form of nine verses of three lines each. The poems are presented in the order written and then the stanzas are rearranged in the order 9, ...(Read More)
Feral Idylls
Feral Idylls (August 2010)
Frederick Bauman - Author

In the face of suffering and death, what is life for? The poems in Feral Idylls attempt to confront this question through an exploration of the lives of animals that inhabit the natural environment in the area where the poet lives. The collection begins with a “Prelude” introducing the basic themes of the sequence. It is followed by twelve poems which use the lives of twelve animals to explore the various struggles which...(Read More)

Field Road Sky (August 2010)
Steve Clorfeine - Author

Praise for Steve Clorfeine’s work:

“I found myself carried by his words … often an unremarkable or extravagantly beautiful list of things and events was made brilliant by the attention paid to their existence.” — Parabola: Myth, Tradition and the Search for Meaning

“Clorfeine’s day-to-day experiences read like a series of...(Read More)
Fugitive (August 2010)
Dennis Doherty - Author

From “Design at Mahmoudiya”

At the crossroads of assault and proceed,

with the sweat dirty gun grease of law machines,

amid thrill and lull, faithless young gods

inured to guts swill black smoke, uniformed,

flag-fetishistic do-good recruits who

embrace for sanity&rsquo...(Read More)

The Poems of Kim Gwang-gyoon
Kim Gwang-gyoon - Author
Kyongjoo Hong Ryou - Translated with an introduction and notes by

“A Short Piece”

It must be that the azaleas

Bloom at dawn

And fall at dusk.

Over the low pine grove

Behind the rocks in Samchung Dong

They droop

Whenever the clouds pass.

All through April
