Congratulations to Caleb Puckett on the great review of his Mammoth book Fate Lines / Desire Lines by Eileen Tabios for Galatea Resurrects. Her review begins: Caleb Puckett“Swerve! Cheerful swerve! Wow: I was not expecting so much pleasure in Caleb Puckett’s FATE LINES / DESIRE LINES which I picked up desultorily one afternoon (I’d already pushed away another award-winning poetry book for trying to force me into a premature siesta). Well, Puckett’s poems blew away the lethargy from the house and woke me up! And the poems did so with much fresh lines. The innovative diction makes it difficult for the eye to pass by. Instead, the reading slows so that one can see one of the collection’s strengths: imagery.” Read the entire Tabios review at  Order from or see the Caleb Puckett web page, under Authors M to Z.

Fate Lines/ Desire Lines, by Caleb Puckett, is a superb collection from a poet with an original voice and a daring approach to language. He speaks to all kinds of lines that define our lives, especially storylines about what our lives are and are not. Puckett inhabits the landscape of possibilities, designing his own poetic forms, re-inventing traditional forms, and giving new life to prose poems and free verse. Puckett prompts us to think through those lines we carry and carve across the earth. Fate Lines/ Desire Lines balances between choice and compulsion, nature and persuasion.

Originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, Caleb Puckett lives with his wife, sons, and dogs in Ottawa, Kansas, where he works as an academic librarian. He has two book-length collections from Otoliths, Tales from the Hinterland and Market Street Exit.  In addition to writing, Puckett serves as editor-in-chief for a library science journal, associate poetry editor for Nimrod International Journal, and editor for the online literary journal Futures Trading (
