The Unsung Masters Series        

"Admirable!" —The New York Times

"Combines scholarly rigor with poetic chutzpah!"  —The Kenyon Review


The Unsung Masters Series seeks to bring great, out-of-print, little-known authors to the attention of new generations of readers.  Each volume includes a large selection of original poetry or fiction as well as photographs, essays by various hands, interviews, and ephemera.  The Unsung Masters Series is curated by Kevin Prufer & Wayne Miller and published annually in cooperation with Pleiades Press, Copper Nickel, and Gulf Coast. Paperback editions are available free to subscribers of Pleiades and Gulf Coast and are distributed to the trade by Small Press Distribution.  The Unsung Masters Series also sponsors periodic readings of the work of other great, but little known authors.
