Fish in Exile – Vi Khi Nao
A brilliantly written cross-genre. Compelling story. Poetically metered. Theater-like scenes.
The Philosopher Savant – Rustin Larson
Larson’s writing style is multifarious. In the great library of the universe, this book would be there on the top shelf.
WHEREAS – Layli Long Soldier
Lucky Girl – Mei-Lin Hopgod
Hopgood The book is, for the reader, an education in mores, socialization, and the resiliency of the human soul. Whatever crisis befalls the narrator, whatever ugly secret she unearths, whatever tragedies happen to her families’ members, the book remains a spiritually uplifting read.
The Gospel of Barbecue – Honoree Fanonne Jeffers
Unique and imbued with ethos, the collection takes the reader into the souls of the repressed to look out upon the world with hope and tenacity. Jeffers’ voice and style are exemplary.
