In Surrealities, SFPA Grandmaster Poet Bruce
Boston brings together 29 poems surreal and about
surrealism.  Along with seven poems appearing
here for the first time, this volume includes reprints
from leading genre and literary publications such as
Chiaroscuro, Dreams and Nightmares, Paper
Crow, The Pedestal Magazine,
and Strange
.  Also includes six original and
striking Rorschach illustrations Boston
has created specially for this collection.

“Here, the surreal beauty of a muscular mind,
poems like evil flowers, cachinnating snow
monkeys, blue-eyed chateaus, scarlet snails. Here,
all the boats are drunk, all the architecture soft and
hairy, all the nights lit by giraffe fire, butterfly
blaze. Here, Bruce Boston – investigating an
horizon first mapped by Celan and Eluard, Tanguy
and Tanning – rummages through each tree’s
drawer, behind perception’s door, to find
disturbing but strangely familiar shapes for
language, longing, and love.” --Bryan D. Dietrich,  
author of
Universal Monsters

“ introduction to the uninitiated, a handbook
for the journeyman seeking to gain mastery, and an
intoxication to those of us who fancy ourselves
connoisseurs of the strange.”–Lee Ballentine,
author of
Dream Protocols

“Reading these poems is like embarking upon a
trek through ‘the depths of dreams,’ the
‘infrastructure’ of the soul itself! I celebrate the
release of this work, a collection to which I shall,
no doubt, frequently return.”–John Amen,
author of
At the Threshold of Alchemy

“At times furious in its assault on the senses. At
times curious in its nonchalance. A master class on
the motive/emotive powers of language.”
–Robert Frazier, author of
The Daily Chernobyl

“I read this collection straight off and loved it. If
you like your poetry with a strong taste of the
weird, the unusual and over-the-edge bizarre, you
have to read this book.”–Alan Catlin,
author of
The Insomniac's Gift
