Add to BookShelf


Fierce, bold, and self aware, Stocks’s debut poetry collection is steeped in the Gothic hauntings of Deep South life, like “Wasps, with their legs crossed [that] hover in the uppermost angles of gables like ghosts with terrible news they can’t wait to deliver”.

— Jenifer DeBellis, author of Blood Sisters and editor of Pink Panther Magazine

In Blameforest, Jason Stocks captures the rhythms of a vibrant vernacular that is original and authentic. He builds a distinctive world that often turns violent and lovelorn, his rendering clear-eyed and voiced like a blade — and does so while displaying the expansive range of a skilled craftsman. Far more than a sequence of individual poems, Blameforest is a layered and nuanced work of innovative literature to be read in one sitting, and then over and over again.

— Jacob M. Appel, author of The Cynic in Extremis

Jason Stocks lives and writes in Florida. His work has appeared in New Delta ReviewConfrontationExterminating Angel Press, and other fine journals. Blameforest is his first full-length poetry collection.

    One heck of a debut poetry book. Worth reading again and again until it all sinks in.
