Erik Richardson’s chapbook, a berserker stuck in traffic, now available

PicturePebblebrook Press, an imprint of Stoneboat Literary Journal, is proud to announce the release of its third publication, a berserker stuck in traffic. Authored by poet Erik Richardson, a past contributor to Stoneboat, this chapbook intelligently reflects upon the lunacy of mundane existence through introspection and exploration of an eclectic past.

B.J. Best, Assistant Professor of English at Carroll University and author of several poetry chapbooks and collections, writes:

...Richardson is a modern mythmaker. From his cauldron of history, science, philosophy, and mathematics bubble lives we’d forgotten we lived, or those we thought—until now—were impossible. [This collection] asks us to recall the wilderness, wonder, and even violence of our collective past and return to it in our times, chained to cubicles though we may be. Richardson’s poems remind us of our latent powers, and offer the hope that one day we will tell stories where we are not workaday dullards, but demigods.

Erik Richardson lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, with his family and assorted pets. In addition to teaching, he attends grad school in psychology, coaches several award-winning robotics teams, and runs a small communications firm. He is a three-time winner of the Gahagan Prize at the world’s largest Irish festival, received honorable mention for the Hixson Award, and is a regular contributor to Centrifugal Eye. His work has appeared in Nerve Cowboy, Verse Wisconsin, and Chiron Review among others.

It has been a pleasure collaborating with Erik to bring his first chapbook to life.
