Tales from the Holograph Woods: Speculative Poems

Wattle and Daub Books, Fall 2009 ISBN 978-0-9810658-2-3 $9.95 trade paper 83 pages

This new collection revisits poems published over the last thirty-five years in magazines and anthologies ranging from PRISM international and The Antigonish Review to Weird Tales and Black Lotus. Kernaghan's themes, drawn from science fiction, myth and magic, dark fantasy and fairy tales, are reflected in the haunting cover art by Henri Rousseau.

"Poetry should always, to some degree, be about the uses (and misuses) of enchantment, and Kernaghan has touched something deep and visceral with these verses. You will read them once, then, in the middle of the night, wake suddenly, shivering, and need to read them again..." -Sandra Kasturi, author of The Animal Bridegroom

"Eileen Kernaghan creates worlds where magic and myth sing together in dreamlike harmony. There is madness here, mixed with insight, leaving the reader bewitched and transformed..." -- Marcie Tentchoff, author of Through the Window: a Journey to the Borderlands of Faerie
