West of Love
by Francis Davis

ISBN 978-1-944467-07-4, $16.95

West of Love is a fierce and moving elegy to young love in a world that’s about to change, in essential ways, forever. The narrator of these linked stories tries to plumb his life and attachments in the ‘90s for clues to the man he is in middle age, and he does so in a pungent and obsessive voice that aches with yearning for the mysterious just-beyond.  A memorable debut collection by a writer who knows how to get to the heart of it.”—Deirdre McNamer, author of Red Rover

Mortal
by Thomas Dillon Redshaw

ISBN 978-1-944467-04-3

Elegant and lyrical and ranging in setting from Minnesota to Ireland, many of the poems in Mortal confront the issues of age and the end of life. But they also open our eyes to the overlooked wonders of the natural world. Mortal is a milestone collection by a poet at the top of his form, writing poems of deep sensibility, whimsy, and wonder.
