In creating the second anthology of 2015, Twice Upon a Time (244 pages), Kind of a Hurricane Press asked our authors to let their imaginations run wild with childhood memories, delve into the depths of, and if necessary, even re-create fairytales. As always, our authors pulled out all the stops, and created, what we believe is one of our finest, and most universally appealing anthologies to date. Twice Upon a Time has something for everyone. Enjoy.

Petals in the Pan is Now Available!
In creating the first anthology of 2015, Petals in the Pan (266 pages), Kind of a Hurricane Press asked our authors to let travel the lines of the blossoming and the discarded, by exploring the themes of flowers and dust. As always, our authors dug deep into the crevices and soared straight into the sun to find a way to present us with amazing work that married these two emblems of life. Petals in the Pan has something for everyone. Enjoy.

A.J. Huffman and April Salzano have created a satirical and humorous chapbook that turns the elements of a "Happily Ever After" life on its ear. They have merged their unique voices to create one vision of that blurry, blurry line that divides love and hate.

In creating the fifth anthology of 2014, Switch (the Difference) (244 pages), Kind of a Hurricane Press asked our authors to let their minds and muses delve into the shadows and soar for the light. As always, our authors dug deep into the corners, floated free in the glare and warmth, and, most importantly, found a way to present us with amazing work that juxtaposed these extremes. So whether you prefer to sit quietly and reflect in the darkness of your room, or to stand center stage in the spotlight, this collection has something for everyone. Enjoy.

Neil Ellman specializes in ekphrastic poetry written in response to works of modern and contemporary art. While never merely describing and mirroring these works, Ellman reacts to them based on his own sensibilities and perspectives. Included in the collection are twenty poems based on works by such surrealists as Max Ernst and Salvador Dali, and such abstractionists as Jackson Pollock and Robert Motherwell.
