He is the author of five books; the co-editor of the magazine BafterC; and the proprietor of the online/itinerant bookstore Apollinaire's Bookshoppe.
> Mycological Studies, Jay Millar's second collection of poems, looks at the world of mushrooms through a kaleidoscope of perspectives and styles, ranging from innovative and constraint-based writing to visual and concrete poetry. This book [Click here for a link to his book] makes a unique contribution to the poetry of science and nature; if mushrooms have a language that is spoken to us or through us as hallucinogenic experiences, Millar has managed to tap into that language and refine it into potent poetic form.
