A look at “Love, Loss and Cardiac Issues”

I am quite enjoying Love, Loss and Cardiac Issues, a 357-page tome of prose and poetry published by Impspired Magazine in the United Kingdom.  This is truly a special anthology that was undertaken by the publisher to benefit cardiac research — it features the work of writers whose lives have been affected in one way or another by loss connected with heart disease.

There are more than 70 contributors here (of whom I am one).  The authors I have enjoyed so far are too many to mention.  I can easily think of several early standouts, however — Rhona Stephens’ heartrending poem “Greeting” is one.  So, too, were Peter Magliocco’s “Gazing at the Vandalized Space” and Mark Blickley and Francesca Schwartz’ short story, “Pumped Up For Next Gig.”  I really am honored to see my work included alongside that of such talented creators.

This is a great book.  I highly recommend it.
