Nicole Oquendo's chapbook The Antichrist and I is the first fiction title we're publishing at Bone & Ink Press, and I can't imagine a better start to our foray into fiction. The short fictions found here are both tender and violent, and will leave you with sympathy for the devil--and with empathy for those who, like the narrator, turn toward him in times of crisis.

Bodies, shivers of romance, promises that are all endings even if they feel like beginnings, Nicole Oquendo’s The Antichrist and I gives us those vital glimpses into the shaking that happens when we re-frame the intentionality of this world. The blood rises and falls with each breath we take, but to risk exposing that elemental plasma to our modern construction can only lead to the terrifying now, and “what it’s like to be found, here, when we are about to lose so much.” This book takes the fear of closeness and of sharing closeness with another, and elevates that tumbledown into an epic in such a short amount of time that it took a minute for my own skin to release that tightly-held pulse after I finished reading it.
—Darren C. Demaree, author of thirteen collections of poetry, most recently So Clearly Beautiful

Bone & Ink is an awesome, writer-centered small press. Love & care goes into their publications & every book from this press feels like a small, dark, dreamy treasure.

shortly after falling in love with ginsberg’s poetry, and delving more deeply into it, I became angry and sad over the lack of recognition for non-men writers of the beat generation. thank you for this beautifully written response.

I bought this on a whim because I love Hole and Courtney Love and poetry. I am not familiar with McMains’ work, so it was a total surprise to me. The writing felt fresh and McMains is clearly talented. As a Hole fan and as a poet I was satisfied. I got the annotated version and it was worth it— there are things I would have missed without it. I recommend this!
