Harpo Marx's pockets. The truth about crop circles. Bizarre job opportunities. A robot poet. A flashback to the Sixties. Within the cornucopia that is Strange Vegetables you will find these and other speculations on things scientific and fantastical, real and surreal, complete with a special garnish here and there to illuminate a poem.
Praise for Strange Vegetables:
"With brevity, wit, and a dash of the surreal, the poems in G.O. Clark's Strange Vegetables serve up snapshots of diverse speculative scenarios -- at times profound in their insight, often strange in their imagination, always entertaining!" - Bruce Boston, Bram Stoker Award author of Pitchblende and Shades Fantastic
"I've enjoyed Clark's amazing poetry for over a decade, and this collection holds some of my top favorites and many new ones. These poems are all Strange Vegetables, diverse morsels, dark and light from Clark's personal garden of verse." - Marge Simon, Bram Stoker Award winning poet, Vectors, A week in the Death of a Planet.
"Strange Vegetables is a wok full of steamed whimsy. Venerable poet G.O. Clark's playful verse induces a smile on every page, punctuated with the occasional shock of melancholy recognition or an urgent, earnest tug on the heartstrings." - Mike Allen, award winning author of The Journey to Kailash.
Trade Paperback: 5.5" x 9.5", 12 point full color cover, 60lb. natural vellum stock.
