Better Cigarettes and Other Poems by Philip Vermaas was our first single author poetry collection as a small press. This book will always be important to the editors. We had a wonderful time pouring over the Manuscript and working across time zones with Philip. This book encompasses an important period of time in Philip’s life. You can see he made quite a journey through his poems. Now, we’re glad to say he’s still living happily with Abigail in South Africa.
We will always believe in the power of good words.
