AVAILABLE NOW // THIS TITLE IS A LIMITED EDITION
The second title in Third Man Books' limited edition chapbook series, Dan Hoy’s most recent collection of poetry chronicles the last days of an expedition stranded on a desolate planet and beset by depression, sabotage, and failing equipment. In The Terraformers, human life is mediated by domes and pressure suits, and the history of human beings is buried in ecocide, oppression, and longing for the infinite, even if (or because) “the infinite / is death for us.”
DAN HOY is the author of The Deathbed Editions (Octopus Books, 2016) and several poetry chapbooks, including The Terraformers, (Third Man Books, 2017) The Tree (Solar Luxuriance, 2016), Omegachurch (Solar Luxuriance, 2010) and Glory Hole (Mal-O-Mar Editions, 2009). His work has appeared in The Best American Nonrequired Reading, Triple Canopy, Novembre, Elderly and other magazines and anthologies. He was a contributor to the collective blog Montevidayo (2010-2015), and was co-founder of the literary arts journal Soft Targets (2006-2007). He lives in Nashville.
