DSC_0003Spacecraft Press is proud to announce the publication of Amy Catanzano’s Let There Be Love. A total of 30 copies were produced, 15 of which are for sale.

Amy Catanzano’s Let There Be Love, excerpted from her book Starlight in Two Million: A Neo-Scientific Novella, is written after pataphysics pioneer Alfred Jarry’s 1899 novel L’Amour Absolu (Absolute Love). While Jarry’s text explores the inexplicable discovery that one’s mother is a virgin, Catanzano’s poem contemplates the origins of life via an otherworldly feminine lens. Let There Be Love flourishes in its rich yet deftly composed language, effortlessly fusing aquatic and cosmic imagery to create a tapestry for the reader to explore and become lost in.

Amy Catanzano is the author of three books:Starlight in Two Million: A Neo-Scientific Novella(Noemi Press, 2014), recipient of the Noemi Press Book Award for Fiction; Multiversal (Fordham University Press, 2009), selected by Michael Palmer for the Poets Out Loud Prize and recipient of the PEN USA Literary Award in Poetry; and iEpiphany (Erudite Fangs Editions, 2008).

SPACECRAFT PRESS O22: “a” BY ADAM PETRASH

DSC_0002Spacecraft Press is proud to announce the publication of Adam Petrash’s ‘a’. A total of 30 copies were produced, 15 of which are for sale.

Adam Petrash’s ‘a’ is appropriated and manipulated from the book A Study of Association in Insanity by Grace Helen Kent. The poem’s text is from the statistical treatment of results obtained from an association test. One thousand subjects were given one hundred spoken words (e.g. table, dark, music, sickness, man…), and then directed to react with the first word which he or she thought of. Results were then documented showing all the different reactions given in response to the stimulus word, and the numerical frequency with which each reaction had occurred. ‘a.’ alphabetizes and collates all the ‘a’ results from each of the one hundred stimulus words, and then strictly omits the letter in all its findings.

Adam Petrash is a writer, poet, journalist, and the author of the novella, The Ones to Make it Through (Phantom Paper Press 2015). He has written articles, book reviews, and interviews for Canstar Community News, Drums Etc. MagazineThe Uniter, The Winnipeg Free Press, and The Winnipeg Review. His fiction is forthcoming or has appeared in journals such as CHEAP POP, Luna Luna Magazine and WhiskeyPaper, and his poems inAfter the Pause and Lemon Hound. He lives and writes in Winnipeg.

‘a’ is available for $3.00. To order, please contact Ken Hunt at jkchunt@hotmail.com. Paypal is preferred. Money orders in CAN dollars are also accepted

The beings the traveller encounters are tragically unable to comprehend their isolation and fragility, and lash out against the traveller, frightened of relinquishing “the paradox of their biology”. The Things also appears online in Issue #40 of the Hugo Award-winning science fiction & fantasy magazine Clarkesworld.
