Son of Abel

By Sapha Burnell
Why is it, I wonder, that every tattoo place I send you to has an outrageous accident minutes before you arrive?
— Finnegan, Son of Abel

Finnegan was having the best day. His pub was lively, he had time for an extra pint and that ginger haired beauty who'd been giving him the eye. When Caleb Mauthisen called for an evac from the Outer Hebrides, what the heck, that would make for more entertainment! Caleb's adventures always came with a few good yarns. Right? Wrong. 

Caleb's obsession with a magical tattoo had the power to end a long-term truce. Who will save Caleb from the crimson claws of his ex, the gypsy enchantress Delilah? Will Caleb find the closure he seeks? Who will save Finnegan from the Vancouver Transit System?

Usurper Kings

By Sapha Burnell
The magic of the perpetual condition is not the animal in us, but our compulsion to be like God. It is creation. Not animalism. Every kiss has the possibility of creating a galaxy, a universe, a life. It is this act of creation which we are compelled to call blessed.
— Act IV

Usurper Kings is an inspection of the feminine through time. Sapha Burnell's debut on the surface, is a poetry collection in five Acts. Without each poem's strength and individual beauty at that exact place, the entire structure would fold in on itself. Move a piece, and the laws governing the works are turned on their heads. Usurper Kings is a treatise on cosmology and feminism throughout time and beyond our scope.

Chapbooks

She wears the title like shape-wear & rouge on a foreign model / Drained of homeland influence / Infused with coffee and vodka / doted on as the hip-bearing / Mother of cultured generations / She is taught the opposite of gravity.
— Angkor Wat, Eve and the Other
