Best of Meme

Among the authors of the poems and prose pieces assembled in this anthology are James Steerforth, Leonard Blumfeld, Niebla, Surendra Sparsh, Iself and Felix Morgenstern.

These miniatures, which range from humorous to deadpan, satirical to whimsical and spiritual to only beautiful,  are the result of the author's participation in various so-called memes – also referred to as writing or art prompts – in the English-language literary and art blog world in 2007 and 2008.

2008, paperback, 52 pages,
ISBN: 978-1-6048-1364-7. 
Out of print. A few remaining copies are available, for example from Amazon US, Amazon UK, Amazon Germany.
