I recently had the pleasure of interviewing for Fringe Magazine a fellow rocket kid and poet, Jeannine Hall Gailey. Her myth-based poetry collection She Returns to the Floating World was just published by Kitsune Books. In the interview, Gailey discusses her process and sources, including how she came to use fantasy, mythology, and comic book characters in poetry, and why she thinks poetry continues to dwell on the outskirts of our culture. She's a fascinating subject and the book is a terrific read, unlike any other book I've read. Grab a copy, you won't be sorry! And will learn a lot about Japanese mythology.
