DSC_0006Spacecraft Press is proud to announce the publication of Jonathan Ball’s Excerpts from Clockfire. A total of 30 copies were produced, 15 of which are for sale.

Jonathan Ball`s 2010 book of poetry Clockfire posits plays that defy expectation as often as they defy the laws of physics. The sun is queued out, the Earth cools free of life, and cosmic horrors haunt the edges of the stage. These five excerpted poems demonstrate Ball`s ability to provide stages for words.

Jonathan Ball, Ph.D., teaches English, Film, and Writing at the University of Manitoba and at the University of Winnipeg. He is an award-winning author of three books. Ex Machina considers the relationship between humans, books, and machines. Clockfire (which was shortlisted for a Manitoba Book Award) contains 77 plays that would be impossible to produce. The Politics of Knivesexplores the language of violence and the violence of language, narrative, and recording. These books were published under Creative Commons licences, so you can remix their contents.

Excerpts from Clockfire is available for $3.00 including domestic postage (+$1 non-Canadian postage). To order, please contact Ken Hunt at Paypal is preferred. Money orders in CAN dollars are also
