By way of introduction: my first collection of poems, The Apparitioners, has been published by Three Rail Press, a new poetry publisher based in Seattle www.threerailpress.com. TRP is a small, two person outfit with limited time and resources, but they've done a careful job with the book cover and interior design. My lonely website would appreciate some visitors; it has a book description, sample poems, quotes and reviews, and information about readings: www.georgewitte.net

The Apparitioners is TRP's second book; the first, Plan B by Augustus Carleton, is a beguiling collection of "diverted sonnets," organized A-Z, which utilize language from the business, law, and tech worlds within an Ammons-like sensibility. These poems seem to proceed randomly but somehow find exactly the right landing point. Anyone who would like to see an expansion of the sonnet's possibilities should track down this book.
