April 28, 2014, Now Available: In Passing by John N. Miller
Fine, poignant poems easy to read quickly but with the depth to encourage our return time and time again. John N. Miller’s meditations on family, childhood love, grief, mortality, history, and place take us deep into the heart of lives acutely observed. Whether he’s writing about war veterans coming home, fishing with his father, or old friends passed on, his voice is calm and clear, with hope and acknowledgment of what it means to be a thoughtful human being.

April 22, 2014, Now Available:
We see the Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression through the eyes of a child in an Ohio steel mill town: splashing in a laundry tub to the rhythm of Mother's piano music; large red quarantine signs on neighborhood doors; no longer the glow from the blast furnaces with the mills shut down; and still Tarzan, Fred and Ginger at weekly matinées.

Into This World


By Michael Miller

February 16, 2015, Now Available:
Cordera’s lyric and prose poems are complemented by David Burton’s illustrations to create an imaginative world of animal lore. Through the eyes of the muse, Urania, and the creatures of the air embodied within the constellations—dove, owl, dragon, thunderbird, phoenix, and others—each poem relates stories and invokes the wisdom of our mythological pasts. The animals in Cordera’s constellations share the wonders, frailties, and concerns of humans, as in the title poem:
“… Unhurried / wings understand; waiting is letting / world's lost answers come to you.”
