Gemma Files' Invocabulary
I'm pleased to announce the release of Invocabulary, a collection of poetry by Gemma Files in both print and e-book editions. You can read a sample of purchase it at http://www.aqueductpress.com/books/978-1-61976-151-3.php.
Myths and fairytales, monsters and magic, dead gods and forgotten goddesses—these are the subjects that most often inspire Gemma Files' third collection of speculative poetry. By running folk horror symbolism through the filter of contemporary language, she maps the shadow-side of fiction out with spells, curses, confessions and prayers in an effort to show how the stories we tell ourselves pull us headlong forward through history, illuminating all the most unsolvable central mysteries of human existence in words of both faith and fear.
