Selections by Poe Ballantine

Poe Ballantine has developed a new system of self-defense he calls “kiss fu,” which unlike its counterpart, kung fu, renders one’s opponent helpless through a series of wild moves and repeated kisses. He is the author of the memoir Love & Terror on the Howling Plains of Nowhere and lives in Chadron, Nebraska, with his wife, Cristina, his son, Tom, and his notoriously slow dog, Lightnin’.
