THE BONE-JOINER (Sycorax Press). Click here to order.
“Sandi Leibowitz’s poetry collection invites the reader to join lovers and witches, artists and mythical beasts in lands made of jewels and bones. Whether it’s an enchanted library, a ghost-ridden instrument, or the spells and incantations of the hopeful and the damned, it all comes together in a sensuous feast of words. Open this book, and fall headlong into a world more dangerous and beautiful than our mundane realm.”
Jennifer Crow, author of The First Bite of the Apple
“This collection should be part of any speculative poet’s library and I hope to see it nominated for an Elgin Book Award in the near future.”
John C. Mannone, poetry editor of Abyss & Apex, Silver Blade, and Liquid Imagination; author of Apocalypse; winner of the 2017 Horror Writers Association Scholarship
“Shudders of longing and fear reverberate through Sandi Leibowitz’s sumptuous debut collection of poetry. THE BONE-JOINER swims deep into the riches of folklore, fairy tale, and myth and returns with haunted eyes, mesmerizing scars and a wry smile. Here you’ll learn the perils of loving a wild child who grows up more wolf than boy, hear the defiance of a man who rejoices in the impractical wing that supplants his arm, and swoon to the song of Old Bone, who knows you’ll be happiest once you’re submerged by his side in the crawfish-teeming river mud. Come join this bloody, enchanting, protean feast.”
Mike Allen, Shirley Jackson Award-nominated author of Unseaming; editor of Mythic Delirium and Clockwork Phoenix
EURYDICE SINGS (Flutter Press) To order, click here.
“Fairy tales and myths are not for children or the faint of heart. In EURYDICE SINGS, Leibowitz guides us across the threshold and into a realm of darkness, power, pain, and heart-aching beauty. Highly recommended… Leibowitz is skilled at taking familiar stories and pulling out unexpected elements or points of view, particularly in regards to the experiences and voices of women. … the result is a sumptuous feast for the imagination.”
Rebecca Buchanan, author of A With Among Wolves & Other Pagan Tales; editor of The Shining Cities: An Anthology of Pagan Science Fiction, Eternal Haunted Summer
“These beautifully wrought poems recast familiar tales in a different light. Highly recommended. Leibowitz’s skillful touch makes these a pleasure to read.
Rhonda Parrish, editor of Fae, Niteblade, Elemental Anthologies, Alphabet Anthologies, Metastasis; assistant editor, World Weaver Press
“From fox-skinned girls and feathered queens to enduring ghosts and goddesses, Sandi Leibowitz shows us the familiar in new and often uncomfortable ways. We see our sisters and ourselves here, and we wrestled with the need to speak (or sing, or scream) our truths. Deliciously transgressive, EURYDICE SINGS gives voice to the primal, the vengeful, and the hungry at the heart of our beloved stories.”
Shannon Connor Winward, author of Elgin-awarded winning chapbook Undoing Winter and To the Touch; editor Riddled With Arrows; winner of 2016 Dwarf Star Award, 2018 Delaware Division of the Arts Emerging Artist Fellowship in Fiction
