**One of my erotic poems, The newest -- workweek blue, was published in the Pink Litter e-zine

One of my erotic poems, The newest -- workweek blue, was published in the eighth issue of Pink Litter e-zine. It appears on page 35 (scroll down to read it).

This rock-sex-and-onanism versework sketches out the cop-a-hot-feel memories and solo desires of a young male wage slave who has little else going on his life. It is, as you probably guessed, a “for mature readers only” read.

(Again, big thanks to editor Misty Rampart for publishing the poem, which is set to appear in my 2016 follow-up book to Mondo febrifuge: omnibus poems.)

**One of my mainstream poems, Beyond a fearful door, was published on the Leaves of Ink site

Beyond a fearful door, one of my newer poems, was published on the Leaves of Ink site.

This verseworks charts the devastation -- and the beginnings of maturation -- that result from a California-themed romantic break-up. It is also a free-form piece that is loosely connected to two reworked (and soon to be published) poems The long-ago dreamt and Marker (asterisk edit), as well as the soon-to-be published story My First Love, in three confessional seasons.

(Again, many thanks to editor E.S. Wynn for publishing the poems, which are set to appear in my 2016 follow-up book to Mondo febrifuge: omnibus poems.)

**One of my mainstream poems, Disparate voices, was republished on the Leaves of Ink site

Disparate voices, one of my older and thematically cobbled-together poems, was republished on the Leaves of Ink site yesterday.

The poem, which shows four different viewpoints and time periods, centers around a mentally ill woman and how her erratic behavior affects those around her.

(Many thanks to editor E.S. Wynn for republishing the poem, which also appeared in my 2014 single-author poetry anthology Mondo febrifuge: omnibus poems.)

**My latest poetry anthology, Mondo febrifuge: omnibus poems, was published yesterday

I just published my second of two books this year - Mondo febrifuge: omnibus poems, which mixes older previous published (and reworked) mainstream verses with quite a few newer works penned within the past two years.

The poems are, per my usual style, rough and tumble free verse works that detail a tumultuous youth dealing with my own fictionalized dumbassery and growing up, a journey infused with the loving, often raw elements of familial discontent, religion, sex, horror films, heavy metal, nature (read: animals) and living in northern California and eastern Washington state.  While these poems are mainstream, many of them would sport hard R-ratings if they were films subjected to the MPAA film board.

Like Welcome to Horrorsex County: microstories, published earlier this autumn, it's a personal milestone book - a way for me to officially bid farewell to one phase of my writing and move onto the next, whatever its final form takes.

 Feel free to click on the above links if you (or anyone you know) would be interested in picking up the aforementioned books. They cost $9 or less (+s/h) apiece, and thanks for the support!

Peter Baltensperger, whose Nocturnal Tableaux* graced this site in October 2012, has had another microstory published: All For The Pain, on the Black Heart Magazine site.

Pain details the emotions and sensations of a writer (Silas Connor) in the future and his struggles to deal with the burdens technological improvement has wrought upon him and those around him. Fans of Baltensperger's past works and speculative fiction should check out this gem of a microstory.
