“No Soap, Radio!” by Bruce Cohen is a carnival ride of poetry. This book is whipsmart and strange, unsettling and joyous.
Mutability may be the rightful subject of the twenty-first century, and if it is, Bruce Cohen’s No Soap, Radio! is its funny, wise, and cantankerous handbook. These poems, part Luddite, part intrepid time traveler, inspect, reject, and grumpily give in to the racket of change: the slippage of language from pun to insight, gender transition at the gym, the endless potential of marital argument late capitalism-style, and vacations on which picking out burial sites is every bit as much fun as finding real monsters under the motel room bed. The mission here is to “pinpoint where it all went chaotic,” and each poem charms us with oddly reassuring reminders of demolished places where, like Cohen’s displaced Tu Fu, we finally discovered we were supposed to be. —Lisa Lewis author of Vivisect
No Soap, Radio! is a carnival ride of poetry. This book is whipsmart and strange, unsettling and joyous. Bruce Cohen interweaves the comic and the absurd with heartstopping tenderness. Crackling with jubilant complexity, these poems whirl and gut punch through today’s weird living—where “most of us More >

Fantasy Novel Envisions a Visitor Who Can Transform the World in “Kamila’s Son” by Eric Ernstberger.
In the early 1900s, Lebanese-American poet and philosopher Kahlil Gibran published his visionary work The Prophet, celebrated for its powerful insights into human emotion as expressed through an epic poem.

“Remember Baby: An Audio-Visual ‘No Kid Left Behind’ System for Your Car” by Pastor Sandy Blake Toles
Book on Safety Alarm System Will Save Lives with “Remember Baby: An Audio-Visual ‘No Kid Left Behind’ System for Your Car” by Pastor Sandy Blake Toles.
The inspiration for writing Remember Baby came because both parents forgot that their six-month-old baby was left alone in a hot car. The setting was Las Vegas, Nevada, on June 29, 2001, the hottest day of the year so far.
The book raises the consciousness of hyperthermia deaths of children left in hot vehicles and promotes preventive safety measures so this will not happen again.
After reading about the baby’s death in the local paper, the author was overwhelmed with grief, and then anger. Pastor Sandra Blake Toles told her husband, “This has got to stop. Somebody has to do something.” A divine calling from within answered “You do it.”
But how could a pastor without degrees in engineering or automotive design a device that could save lives? In answer to her prayers, the director of automotive for Southern Nevada Community College agreed to build a prototype of a safety alarm system that would alert drivers before departing their vehicles about children More >

“The Bloody Planet” by Callista Buchen is a breathtaking tour of the solar system, detailing the violent surfaces and inhospitable climates of each planet and leaving us in humble awe of our own.
In The Bloody Planet, Callista Buchen calls out to the geographies of the solar system, considering the local and the grand, the Earth-bound and beyond.
Her speakers are searchers—through far-flung examinations and pursuits of strange landscapes, they bring us face to face with what it means to be human. On Mercury, “Scars gather flesh— / fall apart. The ground writes, rewrites.” The speaker asks again and again: “What does it matter?”
What matters is the gravity of place. What matters is what pulls us. In these twenty gorgeous, tensile poems, Buchen explores what connects and separates, culling from the planets a universe of language, color, work, art, even love.
Recent Praise for The Bloody Planet:
In The Bloody Planet, Callista Buchen takes us on a breathtaking tour of the solar system, detailing the violent surfaces and inhospitable climates of each planet and leaving us in humble awe of our own.
