Howdy folks, Chris Morey here from Dark Regions Press.  I want to tell you about our latest poetry book (because this is truly a great one).  I present to you, Phantom Navigation by Robert Frazier:

23 chromosomes from one parent, 23 from the other. 46 inescapable parts to a recipe. In Robert Frazier's case, his father was a cryptographer at Bletchley Park during WWII, and his mother was a landscape painter who studied with Emile Albert Gruppé. Thus the mystical science of deciphering gibberish into plain text meshes with a penchant for impressionistic imagery in Phantom Navigation. Within his first poetry collection in ten years, Frazier maps half-a-hundred works collected from a long career in publishing. Join the 3-time Rhysling-award-winner as he explores the intersection of science and art with a vengeance.

"As honest as wheat, as spectacular and absorbing as a dream, Phantom Navigation is an explosion of creativity from one of America's finest poets. Robert Frazier's breadth of vision is extraordinary."
- Lucius Shepard, author of The Dragon Griaule

"A little Ginsberg, a little Eliot, a little Coleridge, and a lot of storytelling in the sfinal way, yet it is poetry, pure poetry, down to its pretty little ionized toes. How can anyone who loves poetry and sf/fantasy resist this new
collection by the master himself. That's it! Don't resist! Resistance is futile."
- Jane Yolen, author of Things to Say to a Dead Man

"Robert Frazier writes knowing, evocative, poignant, and allusive poetry. His images and metaphors, in addition to startling with their aptness, create clear pictures of alien situations and phenomena, a remarkable skill. Further, this book showcases Frazier's talents in nearly fifty disciplined individual performances."
- Michael Bishop, author of The Door Gunner, and Other Perilous Flights of Fancy
