Week 24 UK Chapbook Chart 2017 – Tony Hoagland

Once again Hard Rain by Tony Hoagland graces the number 1 position on the UK Chapbook Chart. Hard Rain is consistently the most popular of chapbooks in the UK and remains a favourite amongst readers throughout the world.

Tony Hoagland is still little known in Europe and yet he made his way into the prestigious British encyclopaedia Contemporary Poets at a very early stage. Since then he has also published Donkey Gospel and What Narcissism Means to Me, books that have won him a swathe of awards in North America. As these titles suggest, Hoagland’s characteristic tone is marked by a deep devotion to hedonism in all its manifestations, humour being one of its mainstays

New entries – A Democrat’s Chapbook by A Quiet Woman at No.10.

Leading publishers –Holllyridge Press, Createspace and Pluto Press (2 entries each).

Leading author – Oscar Wilde (2 publications each)

Week 18 UK Chapbook Chart 2017 – Jeffrey Gilbert

Mystical Musings is a chapbook that contains the ruminations of a modern spirit. Jeffrey Gilbert has found his way to Love/Wisdom through binaural beats, plant medicines, meditation, Christian College where he got my Bachelors Degree in Bible/Philosophy, living in a Charismatic house church and holding “free healing” signs at the boardwalk where they lay on hands, travelling in a school bus to Costa Rica, ministering in the garbage dumps in the Phillipines, dancing at Electric Forest, being married twice, skating parking garages all night in San Diego, reading (and experiencing) A Course of Love, A Course in Miracles, Conversations with God, The Way of Mastery, etc. all of in which he could taste the words of divine flow down his spine. Gilbert has put together some of his poems here with an intergalactic portal at the end. So if you’re into feeling happy, while exploring the angst of losing your religion these are some reflections of being there in the corner.”
