writing night book – Tom Reed and others


“writing night book: a poetry and oddity anthologia” is an eclectic blend of poetry and prose. The majority of the words belong to Tom Reed, with contributions from Peter Barnfather, Laird Barron, Dominic DiCarlo, Alexi Garre, Josh MacLeod, Annie Tsotas, Michelle Tudor, and Tara Vanflower. The pieces are intermixed which can be a bit confusing. Reed explores different forms and textures throughout, but really hits his stride with A Conglomeration of Angels, Metallic. It is an engaging story told over several parts…it is part prose poetry, part speculative tale…using several different techniques and voices. Annie Tsotas and Michelle Tudor contributed four of the strongest poems in the collection, unfortunately they were the only pieces by those two.  – Jason Bates
