The Spoils: February 2013

Five titles from Birds LLC, who published Partyknife by Dan Magers, one of my favorite books published 2012 (the other is Alien vs. Predator by Michael Robbins):

  1. The Trees Around by Chris Tonelli
  2. Goat in the Snow by Emily Pettit
  3. The French Exit by Eliza Gabbert
  4. Either Way I’m Celebrating, poems and comics by Sommer Browning
  5. Kings of the F**king Sea, poems by Dan Boehl, images by Jonathan Marshall

So far, the only Birds LLC title I don’t have is the just-released Rise in the Fall, with poems by Ana Božičević and art by Bianca Stone. I’ll most likely order that when they also release The First Four Books of Sampson Starkweather.
