Hi, folks.

If you're a fan of Crystal Lake Publishing and our authors, please take a moment to write a review of one of our titles, or even recommend it to your friends on Goodreads and in person. ;-)

People underestimate the value of a review, even a three star review, and we all know word-of-mouth will always be the best.

And for the authors out there, here are the submission guidelines for TALES FROM THE LAKE VOL.4: http://www.crystallakepub.com/submissions/

Brand new Sci-fi poetry collection by Crystal Lake Publishing and Bruce Boston (http://getbook.at/Encounters).

Brief Encounters with My Third Eye collects over one hundred of Boston’s best short poems (under fifty lines) from more than forty years of publishing, including fifteen award-winning poems. Boston’s poetry has received the Bram Stoker Award, the Asimov’s Readers Award, and the Rhysling and Grandmaster Awards of the Science Fiction Poetry Association.

“Boston forces us to make eye contact with alchemists, angels, ghosts, werewolves, demagogues, monsters, demons, spacers, robots, berserkers, their lovers, and their victims. Inventive, speculative to the point of skewering us with wonder, innovative, resonant with melody, this overview of Boston's work from the early 70's to the present dramatizes the development of one of America's most skilled and inspired poets.” – Mary Turzillo, Lovers & Killers, Mars Girls, Elgin and Nebula Award Winner.

“In these fleet, always musical poems, Boston spotlights not only infinite vistas of time and space but also the grottos of our most intransigent longings and fears. These same poems may move us to gasp or guffaw to the point of finding ourselves, to purloin a phrase of the poet's, ‘polymorphously pleasure-spent.’ Brief Encounters twinkles luminously and always delivers.” – Michael Bishop, Nebula Award Winner, author of Other Arms Reach Out to Me: Georgia Stories

“With Brief Encounters, Boston manages an amazing feat: he not only knocks it out of the park, but also shows us he's been doing it for decades. A great read for anyone who enjoys seeing what wonders words can work...and who isn't afraid to step into the dark from time to time.” – Michaelbrent Collings, multiple Bram Stoker Award Nominee and bestselling author of The Longest Con
