I've had three poems in the latest, winter 2022, edition of Door is a Jar magazine.
You can either get it from the website or pick it up at the nearest Barnes and Noble.
My short story, "Messages from Paradise," has been published over at Expat Press. It's a surreal horror piece written as a series of text messages. Thank you very much to the kind folks at the press for publishing this on their site.
PLAYS/hauntologies is out now from Madness Heart Press. You can get the ebook directly from the Madness Heart website, or from Godless. Physical copies are available from the Madness Heart website and Amazon. You can also get the ebook on Kindle.
You can watch the book trailer for it here on YouTube.
Christina Pfeiffer of the Mothers of Mayhem podcast had this to say about the book: ""Every play is stunning, beautiful, and forces the reader to question things. But 'An American Demon' is, by far, one of the most beautiful works I have read this year. Just... this is going to live rent free in my head until I die."
If you enjoy the book, please consider giving it a review on Goodreads.
Thank you everyone for your support.
Coming September 18th from Madness Heart Press
"Having dabbled in texts for performances in his prior books, PLAYS/hauntologies sees Ben Arzate’s first full-length foray into works for the stage. Combining the absurdity of Samuel Beckett, the cruelty of Antonin Artaud, the postdramatic vision of Heiner Muller, and a wide mix of inspirations from genre fiction, these pieces are a deeply eclectic mix.
From the surreal science fiction of “The Doomed Flight of the Taurus-19” to the pitch-black humor of “The Confessor” to the searing anti-war monologue “An American Demon,” these plays are guaranteed to entertain, horrify, and bring the minds of readers to new and strange places."
Read, read, read.
