Hamilton Stone Review contributor Darren C. Demaree's poetry manuscript Two Towns Over had been selected by Campbell McGrath as the winner of the Louise Bogan Award from Trio House Press. "Darren is a dangerous dreamer, concocting love poems to his home state, and pastorals to his true love. But there's always something more beneath the surface: sex and violence, villainy, mutilation, uneasy redemption and troubled ecstasy. These poems are pins pressed deep in the disfigured heart of America. They work a dark magic on the reader — they're unsettling in necessary ways." Christopher Michel. Learn more at Darren Demaree's website.

Sleepwalker's Songs: New and Selected Poems by James Cervantes

James Cervantes's Sleepwalker's Songs seems so sane, its light so much that of the quotidian, that it is only with a certain shock (like that produced by a dream remembered) that one realizes what one has really experienced

                                                                           - T.R. Hummer


Cervantes, one can reasonably assume, believes longing is its own music.  Be forewarned. These are the poems of someone who knows the dangers in such music and has chosen to dance to it anyway.

Homeward Bound: Seeking Satisfaction in the Family by Howard Waskow.

"Readers are accompanied by a wise guide on a journey to understand more deeply the sources of disappointment in their family relationships and to discover potential paths to greater satisfaction in the family and in intimate relationships more generally.."
