The book is comprised of twenty of my poems paired with the brilliant and colorful photographs of Jeffrey C. Alfier whose poetry and photography I have long admired. The settings range from far West Texas to the deserts of southern California.
Boiling It Down: the Electronic Chapbooks of Larry D. Thomas is a collection of all fifteen of my electronic chapbooks. Here is the book’s listing at Amazon:
Although the publisher is Blue Horse Press, it is available for order only at Amazon.
I am pleased to announce the publication of my new poetry collection, In a Field of Cotton: Mississippi River Delta Poems, by Blue Horse Press. My poems are beautifully illustrated by eleven photographs taken by master photographer/poet Jeff Alfier. The book is available for purchase at Amazon.com: https://www.amazon.com/dp/0578466201/ref=sr_1_6
Inasmuch as the first three of my eleven full-length poetry collections were largely set in West Texas where I was born and reared, my poetry became associated by many of my readers with the landscapes and people of West Texas and the Trans-Pecos region of the state. Although eleven of my print books, however, contain poems inspired by the Mississippi River Delta, In a Field of Cotton is my first poetry collection dedicated entirely to the Delta region and culture to which I am vitally connected in spirit, emotion and by bloodline.
