De Natura Melanoma by Sharad P. Paul (Published by Middle Island Press)

Sharad - De Natura Melanoma Cover JpegDe Natura Melanoma (ISBN 978-0-6923-0827-1) is unlike any poetry collection that we have published to date. De Natura Melanoma (on the nature of melanoma) is a collection of poetry by internationally respected cutaneous oncologist and skin cancer surgeon, Dr. Sharad P. Paul. It ends up a short, sumptuous and beautifully written chapbook of a medical doctor and established writer’s literary foray into the world of melanoma, the tumor of melanocytes – which are the cells that make up skin color. It ends up a memoir about life, narrative medicine and battling cancer. 53 pages.

Copies may be purchased through the Middle Island Press website, Amazon.com and other places (links forthcoming).

A Kindle-downloadable version is also available.

Middle Island Press Release: Felton Prairie by Rodney Nelson

Nelson - Felton Prairie Cover JPEGAs we at Middle Island Press delve into the world of perfect-bound book-publishing, it’s with a glowing sense of accomplishment that we present North Dakota poet Rodney Nelson’s fourth Middle Island Press title, Felton Prairie.

Nelson’s home region, the Red River prairie, has been called a valley but is in fact a seabed with hidden beaches rimming it. The native and restored grassland of Felton Prairie is up on one of these. Nelson walks there often and has borrowed its name for this 105-page collection of poems which is available through the Middle Island Press website, and also through Amazon.com and elsewhere online.

A Kindle version will soon be available for download.
