CONTINENT OF LIGHT edited by David Madgalene and featuring cover art by Christopher Luna available now

Available now. Please consider ordering a copy of this anthology containing poems which address the current state of affairs. I am proud to count myself among the contributors. I also created the cover for the book. I offer my congratulations to David Madgalene and David James Randolph on its publication, and my wishes for its success.

Christopher Luna
Continent of Light
Editor: David Madgalene

Featuring the work of 54 contemporary writers (the majority of contributors currently active in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area), “Continent of Light” (named after the poem by Katherine Hastings) embodies David James Randolph’s vision of a cutting-edge collection of post-9/11 poetry unafraid to face current urgent social and cultural issues head-on. These poems, truly ripped from today’s headlines, are of intrinsic interest not only to lovers of literature, but to anyone and everyone who
has a stake in the world in which they live.
