Philip Byron Oakes

Philip Byron Oakes lives in Austin, Texas. His work has appeared in numerous journals, including Otoliths, Switchback, Cricket Online Review, Sawbuck and Taiga. His first volume of poetry, Cactus Land (77 Rogue Letters), is forthcoming and should be out in early 2009. I hope that suffices. I generally don't like talking about myself unless I'm drunk, and you happened to have caught me at a bad time. But once again, thanks, I'm definitely looking forward to it.
