|New Literary Books Under Contract:
“Flailing the air with the sharp-wit of coconut machete words, Frank Abrams cuts the head square off Miami, nestles it under his arm, and boldly walks through the Headless City, talking to himself. Everywhere people stare, eyes dumbed down, as plaintiff cries, barking dogs, gunshots and real estate developers drown together in a sunburned stew of history gone awry."Peter B Gallagher , award winning writer and poet.
The Hoards of Torment
"Deeply felt and deftly written, The Hoards of Torment by debut novelist William R. Hincy chronicles a young man's painful journey to self-awareness. At thirty-two, and a father of two, Jack is stuck in an adolescent, destructive rut and old enough to know better. But a battle with his demons leaves him at the cusp of maturity and, just possibly, redemption. The story's hoarding theme, both literal and symbolic, provides a powerful and compelling motif throughout. William Hincy is an emerging writer of great promise. Keep an eye on him."
"After the Octopus continues the bizarre chronicle that is Mark Spitzer's
While attending the funerals for several family members lost in a fire, Sofia finds herself plagued with a bitter taste nothing can remove. A year later, she rescues a white snake trapped in her garden. The bitter taste disappears and Sofia discovers she has been given a gift: She can understand the speech of animals. This gift, however, comes with some heavy responsibilities. Three physical animal guides enter Sofia’s life to help release her from her grief. Her dog, Jet, is exuberant and joyful while Afra, the doe, is an empathic, grieving mother. Anat, the vulture, is a harsh, sometimes terrifying teacher. Cover Painting by Brian Mashburn.
"Joshua Kornreich writes like an autistic street preacher who is biblically bent on getting his version of the truth told and then retold until his story becomes gospel. His recursive swirl of sentences and pathological way of saying will seduce even the deafest ears into a new kind of listening." -Peter Markus, author of We Make Mud

Be the next to publish your literary work at the Black Mountain Press.
Established in 1994, the Black Mountain Press is dedicated to promoting work of emerging authors of literary poetry, novels and short stories. As cinema, art and story telling has plummeted in literary quality to appeal to the lowest common denominator in recent years, the Black Mountain Press strives to find and publish works that aspire to a higher ideal, many times written by unknown, first time authors, without agents representing them. All too often their works are ignored by the corporate publishers who are more interested in serving up their chain store consumables for a public lost in our mass produced fast-food induced art world.
