Milkman Days #3: Spike Marlowe

Spike Marlowe is a superhero. Literally, she wears a mask and everything.

She’s my editor at Eraserhead Press, taking over since Kevin Shamel stepped down.

Spike is the author of Placenta of Love, which was part of the 2011/12 NBAS. It’s a fantastic bizarre love story, and it is touching and bold and bright. Robot pirates, anyone? Spike can make magic happen. That’s her superpower.

She’s an awesome author, editor, and friend. She also writes the Tea House column at Bizarro Central.

Make sure to keep your eyes out for forthcoming works from Spike, including the wonderful chapbook project spearheaded by Constance Ann Fitzgerald: Ladybox.

For always listening to me and helping me talk things through, for being a great editor and friend, Spike Marlowe is an honorary milkman (milkwoman?).

“Lyrical, haunting, beautiful. Look out world—S.T. Cartledge has leveled up!”
