R L Raymond, BA'94, MA'95, is pleased to announce the publication of his third poetry collection Half Myths & Quarter Legends (Epic Rites Press, Canada, 2012). The collection offers a retelling, reinvention, and recreation of myths from around the world and legends in everyday life. Having appeared in prestigious Canadian Literature Magazines such as Carousel, Existere and Descant, with one of his poems currently riding the bus around his home town of London, Ontario*, Raymond just wants to keep telling his stories to everyone.

In Half Myths & Quarter Legends, Raymond draws upon all five senses to explore unsettling situations, real and imagined, to create an atmosphere of horror -- where the threat of being ripped asunder by sharp teeth becomes as terrifying as the act itself.

Half Myths & Quarter Legends will tease your psyche in the way that scary movies frighten children. Don't be surprised if this new work by R.L. Raymond has you looking under your bed before you turn out the lights.
