It's P'rea Press

My typoitis struck again, its P'rea Press.

I did get a pdf copy of the Richard Tierney poetry collection SAVAGE MENACE AND OTHER POEMS ( Sydney ; 2010, P'rea) ISBN 978-0-9804625-5-5 ,$32.50 .  It s a great collection of Tierney poems.  What is there not to like.  You don't have to be a Lovecraft fan to love his work.  Unlike many prose and poetry writers in the Lovecraft canon his poetry usually does not suffer from an overabundance of consonants.

Also in print from this imprint ( in fact its strives to be the Arkham House of dark fantasy and horror poetry)and of strong interest to sf/f/h poetry fans are these titles;

RICHARD L. TIERNEY A BIBLIOGRAPHICAL CHECKLIST (2008),ISBN 978-0-9840625-0-0  (2008) $13.50.  The title explains its all.

SPORES FROM SHARNOTH AND OTHER MADNESSES by Leigh Blackmore, (2008), ISBN 978-0-9804-625-2-4  $13.50.  Blackmore is an Australian dark fantasy poet but I am unfamiliar with his work.

EMPERORS OF DREAMS; SOME NOTES ON WEIRD POETRY by S. T. Joshi (2009) ISBN 978-0-9804-625-3-1  $46.50.  The title describes the book, a collection of essays on weird poetry  by the foremost Lovecraft scholar ever and I have not yet seen the work.

The imprint has one US outlet; Gavin Smith, 3408 Pleasant Run Rd, Irving TX 75062-3255,  .
