It was Ian Boyden’s idea. Ian named the book, provided a striking cover and with Cate Gable’s writing and photographs, and his feedback, and Lyn Coffin’s expert proof-reading skills, the Samthology: A Tribute to Sam Hamill is ready to be launched at the Cascadia Poetry Festival-Anacortes 2019, which is also a tribute to Sam Hamill. You can purchase a copy by clicking on the image below:
