For Lack of Diamond Years

Caroline Beasley-Baker

An idiosyncratic collection of short poems - most under 20 lines - where questions lead the way. The poems are a mixed set of free verse, unabashed counting forms like the Hay(na)ku and the Elfchen, and a very minimalist version of John Cage's mesostic form, along with a small number of poems based on colors, and a few that steal freely from traditional American songs.

David Scott Ewers

Stevie Ludich stumbles upon an isolated, word-covered dry lake bed in this cerebral and adventurous novel. Petrichor is a well-paced black comedy with a paranoiac dose of science fiction washed over with ruminations on identity, language and the composition of reality.

Lift Your Right Arm

Peter Cherches

The five sequences in Lift Your Right Arm are minimalist novels of sorts – short prose that is mostly deadpan and often darkly humorous. The stars of these pieces are Peter Cherches' unique takes on Everyman and Everywoman—dead or alive—navigating a world in which very little is what it seems.
