January 5, 2017: After the Invocation  Poems by John N. Miller
“John N. Miller joins seamlessly his boyhood in Hawai’i, adulthood in central Ohio, and World War II in Pacific and European theaters. His often caustic voice has embedded in it gentleness and empathy, as grain in wood. Full of surprises, delight, and wisdom, John Miller is a “connoisseur of the old art of survival,” a vital presence in American poetry.”—Dabney Stuart
November 17, 2016, Hampshire Gazette Review:“Miller, an ex-Marine who’s now in his 80s, writes both of the shadow of death and of signs of continued life, especially in the natural world; of some memories that have become sharper as he ages; and of a sustained love with a longtime partner.” Read the Review
July 28, 2016, A Word’s Worth Review: “At every turn, the reader joins in an exploration of undisguised reality, revealing Miller’s sensitivity and awareness of the human condition.” Read the Review
“I read Michael Miller’s poems with great pleasure in their accurate seeing, their assured phrasing, their true and proportionate feeling.”—Richard Wilbur

Stone's Throw
January 11, 2017, Able Muse Review: “The use of enjambment, the variations in the length of the sentences, the apparent inevitability of the rhymes all bespeak of a high level of craft..” Read the Review by Brooke Clark
December 23, 2016, Hampshire Gazette Review: “Writing primarily in free verse, with the occasional prose poem and sometimes in rhyming meter, Shaw recalls memories like the wonder he felt for his grandfather’s tool collection, the marks his father left on the kitchen chair he used for years, and the feel of crossing a farm field in summer when the heat seems to conjure an ‘uncanny emanation like / a sigh up from the blistering soil’” Read the Review
September 2 2016, A Word’s Worth Review: “Poetry moving between past and present, life and death, to arrive at four cogent lines: “I’d say this landscape frames / hints of how best to go. / Others may crash in flames. / My goal is afterglow.” .” Read the Review
“Time and again, Shaw brings his subjects to life. Handles of tools look “like lemon jelly petrified.” Plants and animals, youth and age, private life and public history—everything is here in glorious enchantment and detail.”—Timothy Steele
April 17, 2017: First and Last Words
Memoir & Stories by Stuart Friebert
Friebert’s stories glide between first and last person, as memoir in 1949, a student in Germany. To ancestors: Eddie and spunky fiancé Gertie. To stories of campus life, fishing, and translations in Czechoslovakia. Stuart’s book echoes the early James Joyce and reminds us that war and intelligence continue.
