by Dan Hoy


about Abraham Smith:

Abraham Smith is the author of four poetry collections, all from Action Books: Ashagalomancy (2015), Only Jesus Could Icefish in Summer (2014), Hank (2010), and Whim Man Mammon (2007). Destruction of Man, his book-length poem about farming.


about The Terraformers:

The second title in Third Man Books "C" chapbook series, Dan Hoy's latest collection of poetry chronicles the last days of an expedition stranded on a desolate planet and beset by depression, sabotage and failing equipment. In The Terraformers, human life is mediated by domes and pressure suits, and the history of human beings is buried in ecocide, oppression and longing for the infinite, even if (or because) "the infinite / is death for us."
