"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 Eyes of Texas are Upon Us.

The fine folks at Murder by the Book in Houston, Texas will carry copies of The Lineup: Poems on Crime. Once again, Texas leads the way (as Bill Crider might say); Muder by the Book is the first store to offer this cool anthology. We don't yet have a release date, but it should hit the streets and shelves soon.

The Lineup features hard-boiled poems by Ken Bruen, Robert Plath, Sandra Seamans, KC Trommer, Graham Everett, Daniel Thomas Moran, R. Narvaez, A.E. Roman, Gerald So, Daniel Hatadi, Sarah Cortez, Stephen D. Rogers, Misti Rainwater-Lites and some fat bastard from Maine.
