About the Author
Nate Pritts is the Director and Founding Editor of H_NGM_N (2001), an independent publishing house that started as a mimeograph ‘zine. He is the author of eight books of poetry, including Revenant Tracer, which won the 42 Miles Press Poetry Award and will be published in the fall of 2017. His most recent collection is Post Human (2016) which Publishers Weekly says "leads readers through a poetic dystopia that reveals the fragility of the human relationship with technology. Weaving his poems together as a meditative critique of technology and its numbing effect on the everyday, Pritts asks readers to imagine other possibilities amid 'this daily flood/ of ephemera, this electronic life.'"
