From the publisher

LONG LIVE THE NEW FLESH moves through screens, monsters, memories, and bodies, in an act of cultural cruising. Through sources as diverse as Love IslandSailor Moon, and Hellraiser, these poems explore the endless acts of transformation that do so much to define queer life and identity. Looking at the past as well as the future, this is writing that reaches towards the possibility of liberation in unlikely places, offering a journey towards a new kind of trans future.

Each pamphlet is Singer-sewn bound in grey and red thread in a limited edition of 150.

“Hewn in the blood splattered celluloid of slasher flicks, Hammer horror and B-movies Long live the new flesh is a delicate and funny, searching and profound collection. Moore places their own relationship to writing, transness and the fandom on the butcher’s block with care and precision, tearing the reader a new one in the process.” D Mortimer, author of Last Night a Beef Jerk Saved My Life
