"You know what? The bastard blows me out of the water. This guy writes Maine like Ardai writes New York. If you're not reading him, you don't know what you're missing." --Chris F. Holm, author of The Big Reap, The Wrong Goodbye and Dead Harvest.

"Bagley's got the poet's eye, but that doesn't mean everything is prettier in his work. It means the ugly stuff is more vivid. More intense. Like a sudden switch from analog to HD. And that's a trait to very much admire in his work." --Anthony Neil Smith, author of Hogdoggin', Yellow Medicine, The Drummer and Psychosomatic.

The Lineup

Gerald So had a great idea: put together an anthology of poems about crime. He found willing accomplices in Richie Narvaez, Anthony Rainone and me. We've gathered some fine work from several crime writer/poets and the results will appear in a chapbook-sized print anthology called The Lineup: Poems on Crime. Look for it sometime this spring. You can get more details at our official blog.
