Slamma Lamma Ding Dong, an Anthology of Nebraska Slam Poetry, Winner of the 2006 Nebraska Book Award for Best Anthology!

features 35 writers who've been part of the slam community since 1999 when the first poetry slams happened in the state (first in Wayne, then the fabled Border's slam in Omaha). Edited by JM Huscher, Dan Leamen, and myself, it's an extremely cool collection. It's available through iUniverse (the link above gives us the most money back), Amazon, and other online sources as well as the Bookworm, Soul Desires, and The Reading Grounds bookstores in Omaha (and, of course, you can also get them straight from me). They cost $12 and EVERY penny goes to the Slam Team fund, helping send Nebraska poets to national slams as well as bringing touring poets through and getting local poets into the schools.

And see some poems of Matt and Sarah in the Summer 2006 issue of the Subterranean Quarterly.
