Due to circumstances beyond control, Joshua Gage will not be able to feature at this coming Friday's Stardust Poetry show at Karma Café in Canton, OH. His feature appearance has been rescheduled for June 21st's show. Due to *other* circumstances not directly related to that, the release of Josh's Inhuman: Haiku from the Zombie Apocalypse has also been delayed. The official launch will now be at June 21st's show, but pre-ordered copies will ship before that date. I expect the book to be printed before the end of May.
May 17th's Stardust Poetry show will now feature storyteller and novelist Marcus V. Calvert and the poetry-and-music pairing of Ingrid Westberg and Emmanuel C. Bey! Marcus V. Calvert is a native of Detroit with a nigh-uncontrollable imagination. He's been writing science fiction since he was eight. Even when life often got in the way, he couldn't give up writing. In 2011, he released Unheroic, his first collection of short stories. Two additional short story collections followed, and now he's working on his fourth book, a novel, to be released in fall 2013. His goal is to make up for lost years and to put out as many books as possible before he leaves this Earth. For him, the name and the fame aren't important. Only the stories matter. Ingrid Westberg is an artist, poet, songwriter, and musician from Akron, Ohio, and Emmanuel C. Bey is the lead vocalist and songwriter of the the funk-rock band Full Effect.
