IndieReader has stamped Love Hurts, IndieReader Approved with a 4.5 star review! So you can understand why this mob of Meerkats is doing a happy dance that might even impress Sam Rockwell. We hope you’ll take a moment and read the Full Review.

For fans of weird and beautifully written genre fiction, LOVE HURTS is a work that delivers 26 distinct emotional roller coaster rides, each as different from one another as they are from any other story you’ve probably ever read.

It’s true, the mother of invention might scoff at this delightful collection as being wholly unnecessary, but the rest of us will only marvel at the sixty-two poems focused on inventors and inventions . . .

My Cruel Invention named Best Anthology

Published by:

My Cruel Invention was named Best Anthology by Grace Cavalieri, in her “December Exemplars” feature for Washington Independent Review of Books.

 

50 poets interpret what “invention” means to them, Editor Geyer compares the word to the notion of great possibilities—with language this time. This is a wonderful array of imaginers telling their wild secrets and what they believe possible. There’s “The Happy Marriage Machine” by Gwen Hart; and Joan Bonin’s “Inventing the Clock;” Jo Angela Edwin’s “The Inventors of Pantyhose; “A Physics Haiku” by Keith Stevenson; a magical piece by Laura Shovan: “Eyes on the Back of My Head;” and so much more, telling you what you could not possibly know, or have invented yourself.  — Grace Cavalieri
