Frayed Edge Press is pleased to announce the publication of Bryant O'Hara's collection of speculative poetry, The Ghettobirds.
The thirty poems in this volume celebrate the ability of humanity to adapt to, surpass, and possibly transcend its environment and its origins. Sprinkled throughout this Afrofuturist collection are a series of recurring characters called the Ghettobirds, cybernetic beings created out of a technological singularity event that occurs in a slum. These beings exist to help humanity change itself so that, in time, it will have the capacity to leave its home world.
O’Hara works with a love of both the natural and the artificial world, and uses rhythm and cadence to compress thought into images of just how strange our experiences can become as we learn to shape—and be shaped by—both worlds.
