Alabama Light & Power Co: The Chalice of Bedlam

Alabama Light & Power Co: The Chalice of Bedlam

By Lynn Strongin Most of the time, as a poet, Lynn Strongin is rather up in the abstract clouds as a poet. Magnificent, but off in the world of decipherable beauty that isn't all that easy to decipher. But here in Alabama Light & Power Co we have a totally different Strongin, accessible, emotional, touching, super-realistic, dealing with her own paralysis, with the world around her, all on an everyday basis so you really get inside the inside of everyone's feelings, pains, exaltations, ecstasies. You can't find anyone else on the writing scene today who can even come close to Strongin's...

Alberix the Celt Book 1: Weep the Long Sorrow

Alberix the Celt Book 1: Weep the Long Sorrow

By Albert Noyer In the spring of 58 BCE the Celtic tribe of Helvetii, then settled in present-day west -central Switzerland and pressured by Germanic tribes from across the Rhine River, voted to migrate to lands in Gaul near the Atlantic Ocean. Gaius Julius Caesar opposed their passage through a Roman province, subsequently defeating an army several times larger than his available legions. In eight campaign seasons, Caesar made Gaul part of Rome's growing empire: Roman institutions of government, law, and customs were veneered onto those of the Celts. The Gallo-Roman culture that prospered...

All Seeds Blended

All Seeds Blended

All Seeds Blended by Fania Kruger, Edited by Burt Kruger Smith We need the voices of the grandmothers, the elders. We need to listen to the ones who survived mass persecution.

Altars Of Ordinary Light

Altars Of Ordinary Light

Altars Of Ordinary Light June Sylvester Saraceno Altars of Ordinary Light, in part, revives powerful memories of a coastal childhood with imagery as sharp as the scent of low tide in a salt marsh. June Sylvester Saraceno focuses a subject, adjusts the light and angle until it reveals what we have been too busy to see—the eloquence and sanctity of the everyday. These poems nicely balance light and dark, humor and sorrow. In "Scars," she writes: "My body is a book / I reread the lines to find/ the fierce allegory of old adventures." Most of these poems have an urgency, and...

America Bound

America Bound

An Epic of Our Times By David Radavich In this richly polyphonic text, Radavich couples narrative verse with interlocking dramatic monologues to deliver a revisionist history of America since the second World War -- an account across generations so inclusive as to seem Whitmanesque -- encompassing personal and national identities, conscience and community. 'I hear the voices of America,' writes Radavich, and through them America Bound renders a cultural landscape altered in the wake of the Twentieth Century. By 'listening to the voices of those who lived simply for themselves and others in...

An Infinity of Days in the Psychotic Atomik Empire

An Infinity of Days in the Psychotic Atomik Empire

Greg Norton Norton flexes his literary muscles and takes on an impressive breadth of topics in these gritty, passionate tales. He turns genres inside out, has a hell of an ear for dialogue and knows how to tell a good story. Dean Monti , author of The Sweep of the Second Hand Greg Norton's stories resonate with the reader like the rumble of a glass-pack muffler off the hard Chicago streets many of his characters ply. Norton's alter ego, Peter MacNaughton, is one part Philip Marlowe and one part Joe Hill and real as the Hawk in January, no matter what situation he finds himself in. Guns,...
