This book contains all my out of print chapbooks (mini-collections of an author’s work usually published by smaller presses.) I decided to put them into an e-book in one convenient volume at a low price so they can remain available to those interested in my work.
The chapbooks published within include:
Moon Canoes, published by Dark Regions Press, 1994
(Im)mortal, published by Shadowfire Press, 1996
Scrying The River Styx, published by Anamnesis Press, 1999
Autumn Phantoms, published by Flesh and Blood Press, 2000
Dreams of Decadence Presents, published by DNA Publications 2002
Dancing in the Haunted Woodlands, published by Yellow Bat Review, 2003
Vampyria, published by Eye Scry Publications, 2005
These books by no means cover all my published poetry, nor even half. But they contain some of my best from my most active publishing years.
I continue to write new poetry when the muse strikes. In fact, I am very prolific but not as keen on marketing it as I once was. The sheer volume of my handwritten chaos in stacks of journals utterly overwhelms me. Getting these out-of-print chapbooks altogether in one volume is a start in a process of endless re-organization.
One uncollected, unpublished poem, “The Moon’s Revenge,” stands as an epigraph at the beginning of this book, just a little bonus.
I heartily hope you enjoy this collection. There is a lot here in these pages. Hopefully something for everyone.
Best, Wendy Rathbone
Vampyria (an excerpt)
I have lived in the green moonlight
The capital of Vampyria is
CAUSES WE SUPPORT...
and hope you will, too.
