Book Review – Operating Systems by Joe Pan

My review for Joe Pan’s poetry collection, Operating Systems (Spork Press, 2019) is up at Heavy Feather Review. I mostly focus on Pan’s long poem that ends the collection, “Ode to the MQ-9 Reaper,” which is awesome.

Book Review – Cold Water Canyon by Anne-Marie Kinney

The new print edition of Rain Taxi features my review of Anne-Marie Kinney‘s new novel, Coldwater Canyon. It’s kind of a Hollywood noir story told from the perspective of a stalker. Unsettling and compelling. As you can read in my review, I enjoyed it.

You can read the review from Rain Taxi. (You gotta buy it; it’s the print edition).

Book Review – Survival House by Wendell Mayo

A couple months ago, I reviewed Wendell Mayo’s new short fiction collection, Survival House, for Heavy Feather Review. Sadly, shortly after the review came out, Wendell passed away. He was the head of the Creative Writing program as Bowling Green State University and a great writer. I’m glad I had the chance to get to know him and his work. Survival House is a collection of satirical stories about our nuclear age. Definitely worth checking out.

You can read the review here on Heavy Feather Review.

I’ll have more book reviews with Heavy Feather in the near future, as well as a review with Rain Taxi.
