FOX FORCE FIVE. IT'S ALMOST TIME

FOX FORCE FIVE
CHAPBOOK COLLECTIVE
PAPER HERO PRESS
160 PGS.

FEATURING:

ELIZABETH ELLEN
ANDREA KNEELAND
BRANDI WELLS
SUZANNE BRUNS
LYDIA COPELAND

Here's what some folks already said:

"Moving from Elizabeth Ellen's aggressively sexual women to Andrea Kneeland's carefully enumerated tragedies, from Brandi Wells' non-realist replacement fathers to Suzanne Burns' witty fantasticism and Lydia Copeland's often second-person dreamings, this collection covers a swath of literary ground as broad and varied as the stylistic variances of its very talented writers. Fox Force 5 is a revelation, both sexy and funny, and from its pages leap forth these five great minds and hearts, shining out from underneath the gleaming surface of their suprising stories and their always inventive language."
--Matt Bell

"A joy to read. Each piece in this collection is its own world, beautifully wrought. Lydia Copeland's prose poetry shimmers off the page."
- Kathy Fish

"I'm drawn to the strong, sensual voice in these lovely, visceral pieces by Lydia Copeland, for the way she loads her prose with physical details that become much greater than their sum. Her unsentimental observations are to be savored - visions of family life, family solidarity, and unexpected violence. She shows us how the living go about the impossible through characters that are equally delicate and strong. The driving rhythm in these prose poems create the effect of music on the reader- the cumulative effect is stunning."
- Meg Pokrass

"If FOX FORCE 5 was a relationship Elizabeth Ellen would be the part where we are breaking, not yet broken but tearing apart, ripping; and Andrea Kneeland would be our aggressive sex, the angry rug-burned knees and all the yelling; Brandi Wells would be the place where we don’t know each other anymore but it seems like there is still something left, something shredded but worth saving; and Suzanne Burns would be that time when we still thought there was love, but it was a kind of beautiful, horrific, frightening love; and Lydia Copeland would then be, in our end and our beginning, coupling as a memory, the way back when our hands first met and there was no way of knowing what was ahead. How mesmerizing it is to live in this relationship, if only as we read it out."
- J. A. Tyler

Sorry I'm dragging my ass with this one folks, but these are the kind of ladies worth waiting for.


Also, less than 20 copies of the DOGZPLOT 2009 ANTHOLOGY are left. All contributors copies and orders have been sent out. If you ordered the book during the two free books promo, which I think there are six of you, only one person has reported receiving theirs, so something has gone wrong, I think. If you are one of them let me know and I'll resend ASAP.
