*Subscriptions to our new season of books

*A $125 value for only $75—about $10 each.*

Ahsahta Press is publishing an unprecedented seven new books of poetry in our 2008–2009 season. Beginning in September, we’ll bring out two collections by poets at the peak of their powers: Stephanie Strickland, whose masterful Zone : Zero is accompanied by an interactive CD, and Charles O. Hartman, whose New & Selected Poems brings together three decades of jazzy innovation. In January, Kathleen Jesme‘s new book The Plum-Stone Game gives us work by a poet D.A. Powell calls “refreshingly unafraid of the sensual powers of poetry.” Also in January, we’ll publish our 2008 Sawtooth Poetry Prize–winning book, the whole Marie by Barbara Maloutas, whose work was chosen from 740 submissions by C.D. Wright. Subscribers will receive Ben Doller‘s FAQ: in March—a follow-up to his Walt Whitman Award–winning first book—as well as first-time author Carrie Olivia Adams‘ filmic Intervening Absence. At season’s end in May we publish Rachel Loden‘s Dick of the
Dead, in which Richard Nixon does his tragicomedic best to bring the world to rights.

If you’re a poetry reader, you can ask your bookstore to carry these books as they come out—but why not place a subscription order with us and find them in your mailbox as soon as they’re published? We’ll give you an amazing discount (40%) *and pick up the shipping*—and you’ll get everything we publish in our 2008–2009 season as they appear in September, January, March, and May.

This year’s subscription will bring you our entire season’s books ($125 if purchased separately) for only $75, including shipping, if you order before September 1, 2008. (Of course, you can order throughout the year, though our subscription price rises to $95 on September 1, 2008—still a great deal at about 25% off. We’ll ship already published books as soon as we receive your order.) Subscribing early helps the press function—so thanks!

Ahsahta Press poetry consistently surprises, delights, challenges, and stimulates the reader. Don’t miss any of it.
