Chief Jay Strongbow is Real

Poems, 2017 BIG TABLE PUBLISHING



"Tim's work is the cool that doesn't know it's fire. And his poetry, dry ice, cold to a flame. And all that cool, fire, ice, vocabulary and metaphor make volcanoes out of sandboxes of life and experience."
-Harlym 1TWO5
A Poet Force to be reckoned with

$14.00

Grand Slams: a coming of eggs story

Novel, 2016 BIG TABLE PUBLISHING



Fast paced and lots of fun. With Grand Slams, Timothy Gager has served up enough pathos, wit and humanity to satisfy the healthiest of appetites. "
-Nadine Darling
AUTHOR of She Came From Beyond

$16.00

The Thursday Appointments of Bill Sloan

Novel, 2014 BIG TABLE PUBLISHING



"As the son of two psychoanalysts, I feel qualified in diagnosing Timothy Gager as a very sick human being and a fearless writer. His prose is odd, mordant, and disobedient. Read him at your peril."
-Steve Almond
AUTHOR of God Bless America

$16.00


The Shutting Door

Full-length, 2013 IBBETSON STREET PRESS



"Timothy Gager is a genius of the quotidian, keenly observing the details of our lives and rendering them so that we can hear the deep pulse of our identities, of our pure being, within them. The Shutting Door is a ravishing, wonderful, enlightening book."
-Robert Olen Butler
PULTIZER PRIZE WINNING AUTHOR

Anti-Social Network

29 Poems, 40 pages, 2013 RED NECK PRESS



Many of these poems deal with outsiders, drug abuse, bar stories, the mix one would expect with the word 'anti-social' in the title. Gager manages to travel this well-trod ground lightly, though, and brings a lot of humor and insight.
-CL Bledsoe
author of SUNLIGHT and NAMING THE ANIMALS

Treating A Sick Animal: Flash and Micro Fictions

46 stories, 140 pages, 2009 CERVENA BARVA PRESS



This book is a trip-- or actually it is 40-plus quick and vivid trips into Timothy Gager's untamed fictional terrain. Sometimes surreal, sometimes all-too-real, these Flash Fictions always surprise. Fasten your readerly seatbelt, choose your own adventure and enjoy the wild rides.
-Elizabeth Searle
author of CELEBRITIES IN DISGRACE and TONYA & NANCY: THE ROCK OPERA

These Poems are not Pink Clouds

Chapbook
48 pages, 2008 PROPAGANDA PRESS


It's a nice, friendly collection. The poems recount many of the author's experiences w/ women, in places as disparate as Chicago, NYC, Maine, Ohio, & lots of spots around Boston. Gager gives the reader a fine sense of life, of the feeling of being alive, of the strange significance of small moments.
-John Berbrich, Barbaric Yawp

this is where you go when you are gone

Chapbook
48 pages,2008 CERVENA BARVA PRESS


Tim Gager’s poems are poems of the regular guy, and in their own way Gager’s work is as American as apple pie. He is a man who is confused by and craves women, retains a childlike enthusiasm for Baseball into his middle age , downs the burger and brews, and pines for something that is always seems just out of his reach.
-Doug Holder, Small Press Review

$7.00


WE NEEDED A NIGHT OUT

Poetry, 2005, CYBERWIT PRESS
160 pages of poetry

Working class in perspective, the poet Timothy Gager does not linger endless in bars because ther are other events of import, like a child's birthday, divorce and the contemplation of life. Sensitive and pondering, the poet deals with these instances.
-Michael Basinski, The Hold, University of Buffalo

SHORT STREET

28 Short Stories, 2004 Zumaya Publications

"Come travel down Short Street, where junkies, drunks and losers live next door to unsung heroes and stubborn survivors". This quotation taken from the back cover of the book is right on the money. Gager manages quite successfully to entice his readers to fall under his spell as he weaves tales both dark and uplifting.
-Circle Magazine
