Live Organ Transplants

 Live Organ Transplants is Akron, Ohio, indie author Gabe Gott's first collection of poetry. It was first published on Inauguration Day, as many of the poems were written in response to the anti-intellectual fervor and propaganda that made a conman the leader of the “free” world. Overall, it's an honest look into the present moment by an older millennial living in what has been described as the "Poetry Capital of the Midwest."

Escapes

In Gabe Gott’s first novel, Escapes, Lance Adamson lives with his mom and Grandpa Harry in the backwoods of Nodtown, Ohio. He spends most of his time out in the garage, playing drums, jamming with Grandpa Harry, who plays bass. Jazz is Grandpa Harry’s religion, and for the longest time, Lance has been his loyal disciple—but he is beginning to have his doubts. Abandoned by his father at a young age and outcast at school, Lance’s anger can only stay repressed for so long. As he looks to forge his own identity, life will only grow more complex, and he will seek shelter in all sorts of escapes.
