Sacramento, CA, 2006) Craig Paulenich reveals a mythic world, the
world of the Goat-Man--who is part Ted Hughes, part Seamus Heaney, part
Phil Levine and James Wright, part Golem, part Grendel. Here is
exquisite, profound and cautionary poetry born of both romance and
earth, of dark magic and of even darker factories and mineshafts. These
poems will haunt you, deliciously, for a very long time."--Gail Wronsky.

the Best Books of 2005 by the Chicago Tribune and the Washington Post.

irresistible.…[Steinke] unflinchingly addresses the questions: How is

heart of feminism and modernity.” Look for her award-winning appearance

Ricki Thompson's young adult historical novel City of Cannibals is now released—and with a wonderful recommendation from Booklist.
One Amazon reviewer writes..."masterful storyteller Ricki Thompson
transforms a dangerous state of affairs into a rollicking adventure. She
balances the brutality of the medieval period with an innocent love
story. Vivid details combined with earthy vulgarity transport readers to
London's gritty streets. City of Cannibals is historical fiction with a
healthy dose of Shakespearean charm and wit."

The poetry of Ralph S. Carlson, Professor of English at Azusa Pacific University, has been widely published in poetry journals, reviews, and literary magazines. Now, he has put forth a collection through Lulu.com. The poems in Waiting To Say Amen “explore both the joy of community and the dark side of religious ardor and rote worship…and stretch to include compassionate meditations on aging, the sadness of a mother in a nursing home, a devastating journey through a cancer diagnosis, and what runs like a river throughout the poems, found most movingly in the title poem, the struggle between devotion and doubt” (from Florence Weinberger’s review on Lulu.com: 25 July 2010).
say of Susanna Childress, “Though the subject matter of Childress’
poetry is familiar—spurned love, abuse, infertility, dealing with cancer
and the abduction of a young girl—by portraying these issues with care,
she provokes the reader to consider the complexity of human love: how
selfishness, fear, lust and even brutality might coincide with
tenderness and loyalty.” Her debut volume of poems, Jagged with Love, was selected by former US poet laureate Billy
Collins for the 2005 Brittingham Prize.

His publisher says of Cording’s work, “These poems ask us to attend,
with devotion and care, to a world which will always remain a mystery,
but a mystery in which love calls us to the things of this world where
we may become most fully human. Walking with Ruskin looks at the
difficulty of perception, of just how hard it is to simply "see" without
asserting our own self-importance, self-needs, and
self-justifications.”Cording has published five collections of poems, including Life-List (1987), which won the Ohio State University Press/Journal Award, Against Consolation (2002), and Common Life (2006).

say it flat out: From her hiding place in Fogelsville, Pennsylvania,
Barbara Crooker has been writing--one by one--some of the finest poems
in America. More contains
many of these poems. It is a book of longing and praise ('Anchor me to
this world, God of spindrift, / God of spume and salt spray, God of
sand'), of whimsy and humor ('What you want comes in five flavors, / and
all of them are chocolate: / milk, mocha, alpine white, semi-,
bittersweet'), of happiness ('Every dog within fifty miles is off-leash,
running for the sheer dopey joy of it')..."--author Dick Allen on Barbara Crooker's new collection, More.
Dalglish’s poetry collection, Humming the Blues (Calyx, 2008), is an improvised interpretation—with a jazzy flair—of Sumerian
cuneiform signs in Enheduanna’s Song to Inanna, (ancient Iraq, 2350
BCE). Dalglish, adept at crafting modern poetry from this ancient text,
invites the reader to a land far away and long ago through her writings.
Jill Alexander Essbaum, a Christian erotic poet, claims she has
three main obsessions: God, sex, and death. Her poetry has been
compared to "a cross between Dorothy Parker and a lap dance" and "John
Donne in sexy underwear." Her most recent publication
is a single-poem chapbook, The Devastation. Famous for her wordplay and puns,
Essbaum always provides an interesting and entertaining read. G.M. Palmer wrote this recently Essbaum: "No poet today dares
play with such spiritual fire like Jill Alexander Essbaum dares. Her
poems skirt the edge of blasphemy and pray for re-readings and a
spiritual embrace. Dancing on the edge of her words one finds despair
and salvation, often in the same word." We couldn't agree more. No library today should be without one--or more--of her books. Jill is presently working on a novel and finishing a new book of poetry.

It’s hard for this to sound like good news, but Augsburg Fortress announced that they will focus on its "two most important callings"-- group-use materials for congregations,
such as faith formation and worship materials, and textbooks and monographs for higher education,
said Beth A. Lewis, Augsburg Fortress president and chief executive
officer. This means that Augsburg will not accept or sell new titles in
its consumer-oriented book line, though it will continue to market
stocks on hand; it will close nine bookstores; it will no longer provide
bookstore operations at synod assemblies and most large ELCA churchwide
events. Tough times, we’re sure. But for writers, and readers, this
means a narrowing of the ministry—one that will hard to rebuild.
