A sad day.

 We here at Wild Shore Press have some sad news.  Brian C. Felder, the oft-published American Poet whose anthology "Plain Big Word" we only just released on Nov. 14 has passed away suddenly on December 3rd.  Mr. Felder apparently suffered a heart attack while at home and could not be revived.

Brian C. Felder

Brian was a talented poet, a scholar, and a good friend.  He is survived by his wife Marianne and his some fifty years of works.  He will be missed.  We'll be putting the Ebook of his works out for free this week in memoriam and to help make more people aware of his remarkable writings.

Plain Big Words


We here at Wild Shore are absolutely delighted to announce the release of Plain Big Words by Brian C. Felder.  Mr. Felder has the distinction of being one of the most published poets in America, with over 400 poems published in over 140 different publications. He has been a staple of the small press scene in this country for some 50 years.  Yet in all that time, despite having appeared in numerous poetry anthologies and being honered with his own archive at the University of Delaware, Felder has never published an anthology of his own works.

Until now.

Plain Big Words is a selection of 100 of the author's favorite pieces, complete with photographs of some of the places, people, and events that inspired them.  Felder's poetry is terse, muscular, and always affecting and thoughtful.  Chris Helvey, editor of  Trajectory magazine and a well known novelist and poet in his own right, said of Felder's Work:  

"PLAIN BIG WORDS is, to use plain big words, the best damn poetry book I have ever read!  Honest, open, and direct, Brian's poems form a mosaic of our collective lives.  What a wonderful collection.  Do not miss this book!"
