POYER -- THE HOME PAGE
This site provides information on my books, bio data, and a small
archive of articles, interviews, and essays. Enjoy!
My fiction falls into four series - Dan Lenson, Tiller Galloway,
Hemlock County, and the Civil War at Sea - along with the
occasional one-off, such as GHOSTING and 2013's THE WHITENESS OF
THE WHALE. For details on each series, see below. All
independent or chain bookstores either stock my work or can get
copies quickly. To order from them, note down the title and
ISBN from here, then phone your local bookseller. Most stores can
get a volume for you in three or four days, even if they don't
have it on the shelf at the moment. Another choice, of
course, is one of the online booksellers.

I'm still on the faculty of Wilkes University, in Wilkes-Barre,
PA, teaching in the MA/MFA in Creative Writing program, with
residencies in January and June of each year. This is a
good, tough program. I mentor new novelists, one on one,
and some of my students are very promising indeed. For
