Upcoming Launch: Tales from the Holograph Woods by Eileen Kernaghan

in conjunction with fellow poet
Marcie Lynne Tentchoff
author of Aurora short-listed
Double-Edged Publishing

Tales from the Holograph Woods by Eileen Kernaghan:
Blake, Yeats, Thomas, Stevens and Plath – are echoed in her poems, as are the mythologies and philosophies to which she turns in her search for meaning not confined to the corners of present time and space.”
—Alexander M. Forbes, Canadian Literature
“Kernaghan has touched something deep and visceral with these verses. You will read them once, then, in the middle of the night, wake suddenly, shivering, and need to read them again. Eileen Kernaghan neither lights a single candle nor curses the darkness—she swallows it whole and then sets it on fire.”
—Sandra Kasturi, author of The Animal Bridegroom
the shadow is always there
dark subtext, dissonance: the mocking laughter
in the fairy wood, the scowling presence
at the birthday feast, the faint suggestion
of warts beneath the velvet coat
this is the page in the book you dare not turn to
the face you see in the mirror
when the light falls at the wrong angle
this is the sly poison under the apple’s
smooth red skin, the dark that is not
light’s absence, but its twin.
Eileen Kernaghan’s Wild Talent: A Novel of the Supernatural has been shortlisted for the 2009 Sunburst Award for Canadian Speculative Fiction.
Through the Window: A Journey to the Borderlands of Faerie by Marcie Tentchoff, illustrated by Michelle A. McIntyre:
“Tentchoff is known for her speculative poetry and she doesn’t disappoint, following the poetic traditions of Homer and Lewis Carroll, as she writes powerfully of mythical beasts and magical realms.”
—Deborah P Kolodji, President, Science Fiction Poetry Association
“Recommended for those who enjoy older poetry (Rennaisance, Romantic, Victorian Eras) and folklore. A beautifully illustrated fantasy poetry collection.”
Louise Bohmer, author of The Black Act
I used to leave my bed and fly
upon a white-winged zebra’s back -
we’d race the breezes in the sky.
I used to leave my bed and fly
but now I lie awake and cry,
and curse the dreams that I now lack -
I used leave my bed and fly
upon a white-winged zebra’s back
Through the Window: A Journey to the Borderlands of Faerie has been shortlisted for the 2009 Aurora Award.
