More about the readers
Roy Mash's first full-length book of poems is Buyer's Remorse. Charles Harper Webb says, "Roy Mash's insightful, touching, and wholly delightful Buyer's Remorse is a celebration of the non-epic and unheroic, the bad decision, the finish out-of-the-money, the cannonball we do to spite the back flip that eludes us, the inglorious lives we seem to have wound up with by mistake.…" Widely published in such journals as Agni, Barrow Street, Nimrod, and River Styx, he is a long time board member of Marin Poetry Center.
Robert Sward's latest book is New and Selected Poems 1957-2011. Jack Foley says, "Robert Sward's poems are the result of a plunge into a never fully ironized, often hilarious sense of mysticism: they are the product of a restless, spiritually adventuresome sensibility masking itself as a stand-up comedian." Among his thirty books are Four Incarnations, Heavenly Sex, God is in the Cracks, and Rosicrucian in the Basement. He's served in the navy in the combat zone during the Korean War, worked for CBC radio, and been a book reviewer and a feature writer for The Toronto Star and the Globe & Mail among other exploits in his long and eventful life.
