Praise for Fierce Invalids:

"What a first-rate production and what a great line-up of authors. I am humbled and proud to be included." -- Corey Mesler

"Great cover.  Wonderful contributions between the pages. Honoured to be included. So pleased you put Rimbaud together!" 
- Lea Harper

"That cover is 'beautiful', simply beautiful - it speaks with an essence of Arthur - childlike in the plumpness of face and the innocent but 'knowing' expression. Amazing - a wonderful collaboration!!!"
- Valli Poole

"The high art of the short poem has no master more accomplished than Ronald Baatz. The places found in these poems impart a metaphysical geography amazing in scope and imaginative dimension,a sense of how the continents of conscious thought and feeling must have been experienced and known before they drifted apart. This book is stunning. Its visions redeem a world and a language we may have thought were lost. Think again."

Submissions for Fierce Invalids: A Tribute To Arthur Rimbaud will now close on January 31st, 2014, brought forward from May. This is due to the overwhelming number of submissions I have received. Better to just close them now and aim for a March release date. Apologies to anyone who was banking on the May deadline.
