New Anthology Publication: Against Agamemnon

Yesterday's postal mail brought, along with returned poems and nondescript items, my contributor's copy of Against Agamemnon: War Poetry 2009, edited by James Adams and published by Waterwood Press.

My poem "Questions on Recruitment" appears alongside work by poets from the United States and other countries including the following:

Alex Cigale
Cyrus Cassells
Jean Hollander
Fady Joudah
Nicholas Samaras
The latter two, Mr. Joudah and Mr. Samaras, are Yale Series of Younger Poets Prize winners.
The work in the volume approaches present and past wars from a wide range of perspectives, including those of combatant, victim and bystander, but any summary fails to due justice to the complexity and force of the poems included.
Should you have encounter any difficulties in finding a copy, the press can be contacted at waterwoodpress_at_gmail.com (substitute @ for word in address).
I am grateful to Mr. Adams for including me in this solemn and necessary collection.
