Lummox Press announces the publication of The Riddle of the Wooden Gun by Todd Moore. This 144 page chapter from his epic poem, Dillinger, explores the escape from Crown Point jail. The wooden gun used by Dillinger to gain his freedom… some say it was an inside job.
“I’ve been haunted for a long time by the dubious history and strange mythology of Dillinger’s wooden gun, the one he allegedly used in his escape from Crown Point jail.” – Todd Moore
Todd Moore’s poetry has appeared in more than a thousand literary journals in the last forty years. He has had more than a hundred books and chapbooks published since 1976. His work has been anthologized in THE OUTLAW BIBLE OF AMERICAN POETRY, DRINKING WITH BUKOWSKI, and LAST CALL. In 2004 Moore along with Tony Moffeit founded the Outlaw Poetry Movement. Presently, Moore co edits, along with his son Theron, ST. VITUS POETRY PRESS. A retired teacher, he lives in New Mexico with his wife and dog. His outlaw days are not yet behind him.
RD Armstrong aka Raindog writes poetry and fiction when he can find the time. Mostly, he’s either working on his many Lummox projects: the Lummox Journal, a bi-monthly magazine, the Little Red Book series (44 titles to date) which is published by the Lummox Press and the LSW Newsletter. RD has several books of his own in print, including The San Pedro Poems and Paper Heart #4. His most recent book, ROADKILL, is being hailed as the ultimate California road journal prose poem, gutsy and rhythmic. — Brian Morrisey

poem by Todd Moore
Our June show of The Treehouse was a success, with a hearty open mic followed by a robust reading from Jessica Lopez. Jessica regaled us with a poetry lush with textured imagery, a subtle feminism and powerful metaphorical girth. We are proud to give a slam poet the opportunity to expand beyond the confines of the competition, and prouder still to see what Jessica did with the opportunity. If you saw it, you know; if you missed it, we pity you. :-)
You might have noticed our custom posters around downtown Albuquerque. The illustration, by Adam’s friend Alexander Butterfield, has been drawing eyes for two months now, and we have started learning to screen print it. We hope that by next month’s show, we will have posters available at the Merch Table for purchase, to benefit the reading.
But none of that can prepare you for what’s coming July 12th, when we feature the legendary author of the Dillinger poems: Todd Moore! Todd has been writing “Dillinger” for over 30 years, often in small bursts of micro-poems, many reflecting an erotic treatment of early 20th Century guns. We can’t express how excited we are to get Todd in front of the Treehouse mic, and if you haven’t seen or heard of him yet, we recommend you park yourself for a remarkable ride into the surreal, virtuosic world Todd has crafted.
