I am beyond honored to have a poem included in this beautiful 48 page, perfect bound, 5.5 x 8.5 chapbook celebrating my friend & fellow Colorado author Mike Adams. From the Lummox Press website – “Unchainable Spirit is a tribute chapbook about Mike, filled with poems by some of his poetic best friends, all of whom are master poets themselves & all paying homage to their fallen friend. Their poems reflect the respect that Mike deserved; they don’t stray into emotive, confessional poetry but speak to the heart of the matter including the devastation left in the wake of his passing.” Copies are $10 plus shipping & the poetry, photography & genuine love that breathes, cries & laughs on every page are worth every penny!

Thank you to Bud Smith, host of The Unknown Show on The Literary Underground Radio Network, for having me on & putting me in the hot seat! Bud is the author of Or Something Like That (CreateSpace) and Tollbooth (Piscataway House), as well as a contributing editor for the literary arts magazines JMWW and Uno Kudo. From the words “welcome to the show” to “it was nice having you on”, I did my best to answer his questions without too much booze-infused buffoonery and read poems from all corners of my catalog. Brew a cup of bold black coffee, sink back into your easy chair & get acquainted with Lawrence Gladeview on The Unknown Show!
Earlier this month I had the honor of being invited on to Frank Reardon’s radio show The Ogre’s Drum, a showcase program featured on the In The Soup Radio. Frank is the author of Interstate Chokehold (Neopoiesis), Nirvana Haymaker (Neopoiesis) & Blood Music (Punk Hostage). During the hour long show, I read poems from my just completed new collection, cracked jokes about family & friends, as well as debated the merits & pitfalls of online publishing among other raves & rants. Buckle up tight, white knuckle the volume knob & push play at your own risk!
It was a real pleasure to be a guest on the Shotgun Reading Radio Show hosted by the energetic editor of Epic Rites Press Wolfgang Carstens. The show is a showcase program on In The Soup Radio & is ninety minutes of raw airwave power featuring unfiltered poetry readings, uncensored interviews & good-natured stories that will leave your stomach in stitches! During the broadcast, I was joined by fellow literary madmen Frank Reardon & Rob Plath who squeezed blood from the alphabet with unrelenting fury. Pour a glass of your favorite poison, adjust your radio frequency & give your ears what the so desperately desire – poetry with a pulse delivered by unapologetic authors!
I am very proud & honored to have words featured in 12 Gauge Shotgun Blasts presented by Tree Killer Ink! From the website – “One of the great themes in poetry is “love,” and “love poetry” accounts for some of the best and the worst poetry written. The goal here was simple: gather 12 of the best and brightest authors currently working the marrow of contemporary poetry and ask them to write their best love poem.” The list of authors is John Macker, William Taylor Jr., RD Armstrong, Wolfgang Carstens, Zarina Zabrisky, John Yamrus, John Dorsey, Rob Plath, Jack Shaw, Tony Moffeit, Stephen T. Burg & this romantic sack of bones. The exterior features stellar design by Sammy!, the artwork of Elizabeth A. Soroka is scattered throughout & copies are just $5, cheap enough to buy one for you AND an enemy!
