Vertigo Xi'an Xavier received his parcel of Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbooks! The new "Fuck Cancer Poems" by Michael Grover, and some older Blood Pudding chapbooks too...
Growling Softly - a multi-writer chapbook (sort of like a onetime extra-special print lit mag) containing the work of 28 different poets, published 10 years ago!
Three of Blood Pudding Press editor and poet Juliet Cook's own older chapbooks - Planchette (2008) - Soft Foam (2010) - and POST-STROKE (2011).
Letters From Room 27 of the Grand Midway Hotel by Margaret Bashaar (2011).
All of these chapbooks are still available from the Blood Pudding Press shop, linked to below

Happy Friday the 13th! The new Halloween Issue 105 of Red Fez is now live!

The new Halloween Issue 105 of Red Fez is now live, with lots of creepy goodies, including my angry horrific contradictory poem, "Unfriend Everyone"!

"If you're an Independent free thinker
whose liberal ideas slightly diverge from my liberal ideas,
then just unfriend me you clueless prick. How dare you
not fit in to the specific details of my own unique group."

NEW in Philosophical Idiot - Dementia Is a Raptor!

"I try to get away but
I try to take care of her broken parts but
what is the point of trying
when all she wants to do is poison me,
then suck my blood and watch us die together?"

from the poem "Dementia is a Raptor" by Juliet Cook,  up at Philosophical Idiot today

The New September Flock of Thirteen Myna Birds has Arrived!

The NEW September flock of Thirteen Myna Birds is HERE: https://13myna.blogspot.com/

It starts with three sampler poems from the new Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbook, "Fuck Cancer Poems" by Michael Grover.

It includes new poetry by Heikki Huotari, Daniel G. Snethen, M.Stone, Steve Sibra, Eileen Murphy, Dan Flore III, and Leona Vander Molen.

"Watching myself die - Mauve spidery velvet - Rotting wild cherries dropped like marbles in the soil - tangled up in our own seaweed - Pain has worked grooves into your face like bone - Everyone has their own sickness to feed - the stag’s spirit easily hopped into Father’s open mouth - panic for A sting never intended - Whenever I am in a plastic bag you can't decide - I drown in the tub while You go back to bed - The moon is melted, all but shelled - in one of those collages they put together for viewings and funerals"

NEW from Blood Pudding Press - "Fuck Cancer Poems" by Michael Grover now available for pre-order!





















"All of these things mean nothing anymore
The places you've lived
The crazy places
The things you've seen
The crazy stories
Burned like photographs in the mind
Burn it all down
It has made you what you are
It seems so few people understand
That it doesn't matter anymore
We've all lost our minds down here
A long time ago
We are all lost in our own delusion
We are all lost in our own minds
We are all lost"

from the poem "All These Things Mean Nothing Anymore", within the poetry chapbook Fuck Cancer Poems by Michael Grover, now available for pre-order within the Blood Pudding Press, HERE: https://www.etsy.com/listing/560564955/pre-order-fuck-cancer-poems-by-michael?ref=shop_home_feat_4

The chapbook includes 22 poems by Michael Grover.

The cover art was created by Craig Firsdon.
