Ava’s poetry publications include the chapbook, Triangle Squared (Bootstrap Press, Letterpress Editions #1, 2014)
and the book Death Under Construction (Ugly Duckling Presse / Bird & Beckett Ensemble Edition, 2019).
Andrew Joron will also be introducing his novel O0 (Black Square Editions, 2022),
a work of speculation, probing the unknowable.
“In Andrew Joron’s O0, two novellas brilliantly intersect. Through a unique reworking of various New Wave sci-fi tropes, space-time is transmuted into ‘reshuffled narrative pathways, a collage of illogical facades and stairways that end in mid-air,’ leaving readers in the midst of a kaleidoscopic zone of meaning more typical of Borges and Calvino than of Stanislaw Lem or William Gibson. O0 is as intellectually challenging as any of the great works of post-modern fiction. It is a book that only Andrew Joron could have written.”
— Stephen Paul Martin, author of The Ace of Lightning
