Featuring Poets James Dorr, Lavonne Jahan’Tigh, Nancy Chen Long, and Evelyn Reynolds

James Dorr writes horror and dark fantasy prose and poetry and enjoys October as shadows lengthen and days grow short approaching Halloween. His latest short fiction collection, THE TEARS OF ISIS, was released this May by Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing, while his all-poetry collection VAMPS (A RETROSPECTIVE) came out in August 2011 from Sam's Dot Publishing/White Cat Publications. His own cat, Wednesday, however (named for the daughter of THE ADDAMS FAMILY) is more a dark gray.

Lavonne Jahan’Tigh has authored a poetry thesis, A Body Fully, and a comprehensive study of American-Iranian relations since WWII. College began as a path towards medical school, but after years of biology and chemistry, she said, “Just one real writing class. A last fling so I know for sure.” Now, she holds poetry and philosophy degrees from the University of Houston, has won second for the Howard Moss Poetry Prize, has served as genre editor for UH’S Glass Mountain, and is earning her MFA from Indiana University. Like most-near-all Persian Americans, she is a lover of Texas.
