Latest release

rust is Elmedin Kadric’s third full-length collection. 

"Like a trickster, Kadric plays with subtle changes in language that almost hoodwink the eye and the mind and, at times—like a koan—make one ever so gently levitate.."
Scott Metz
second full-length collection

Elmedin Kadric’s second full-length collection for Red Moon Press is just as potent and ground-breaking as his award-winning first, buying time. Which is not surprising, given that (as Lee Gurga puts it), Kadric is “one of the most interesting minds writing haiku today.”

Cherie Hunter Day exhorts us to “Tear off the wrapping paper and get right down to it — these poems are gifts.” and John Stevenson adds ”light packing is a cover-to-cover pleasure; a sparsely populated planet on which nothing that is less than meaningful has evolved.”

maiden collection

buying time is Elmedin Kadric’s award-winning debut collection and it’s published by Red Moon Press. All of the poems in the book have been previously published and some have been included in anthologies promoting the best haiku in English.

"We would expect to see this on the lists of top collections this year."
