Dodie Bellamy's latest collection, Academonia, is forthcoming. Other books include Pink Steam (2004, Suspect Thoughts Press) and The Letters of Mina Harker (reprinted by the University of Wisconsin Press, 2004). Her book Cunt-Ups (Tender Buttons) won the 2002 Firecracker Alternative Book Award for poetry.

Rumored Place (Krupskaya, 2004) is Rob Halpern’s first book of poems. Recent work appears in Biting the Error: Writers Explore Narrative (Coach House Books), as well as Antennae, Chain, and Submodern Fiction. He’s currently translating a suite of essays by Georges Perec, the first of which, “For a Realist Literature,” he hopes will appear soon together with his own piece on the politics of Perec’s early work. With Kathleen Fraser, he is editing the poems of the late Frances Jaffer. His new project is called Music for Porn.

Laura Sims’s first book of poetry, Practice, Restraint, recipient of the 2005 Fence Books Alberta Prize, was published in November. She was recently awarded a JUSFC / NEA Creative Artist Exchange Fellowship to spend six months in Japan in 2006. She has published two chapbooks: Bank Book (Answer Tag Press) and Paperback Book (3rd Bed), and her poems have appeared in the journals First Intensity, 26, How2, 6X6, and 3rd Bed, among others. She lives in Madison, Wisconsin, where she teaches creative writing and composition.
