Fractured Fairy Tales - by William Merricle (CC#79)

Crisis Chronicles Press gleefully announces the publication of Fractured Fairy Tales, a new chapbook by William Merricle, on 26 February 2016.  Merricle has long been one of my favorite writers, with incomparable wit, wordplay, dark humor and insight. And this collection of 29 poem tales showcases his work at its finest. 

Fractured Fairy Tales is 34 pages, hand assembled and saddle stapled, with red card stock cover, black card stock end papers and white pages. Laser printed. 8.5 x 5.5". ISBN 978-1-940996-31-8. Limited first edition of 99 copies. Nominated for a 2018 Ohioana Book Award.

The chapbook is currently out of print, but all of its poems (in some cases, slightly revised) appear in Merricle's Contempt of Gravity: The Complete Published Poems, 1981–2020.
