They know how to burn through the fat and get to the heart (and guts) of things, cooking down until only the real, strong stuff remains. Writers who work in both genres are especially adept at this condensing process. We see the results in this issue of The Lineup-an almost painful clarity, and an uncanny understanding of darkness and light, "fragile fiber sailboats on a chintz black sea". -Owen Hill, poet, bookseller, and author of the Clay Blackburn P.I. series< Less

More > Harvey, Janis Butler Holm, Jennifer L. Knox, Amy MacLennan, Carol Novack, Deshant Paul, Karen Petersen, Manuel Ramos, Stephen D. Rogers, and Christopher Watkins. // "Since poets are by definition metaphysical detectives, this collection makes brilliant sense. The poets never flinch nor do they romanticize. Rather they write tersely and deftly of violence large and small, motives confused and clear, endings bloody and mundane. Collectively, they show how poems are bullets of essence that can pierce some very dark shadows." --Baron Wormser, former Poet Laureate of Maine // ISSN 1945-7510 // For more information, visit http://poemsoncrime.blogspot.com< Less

Roman, Sandra Seamans, Gerald So, and KC Trommer. // "Like the best crime fiction, the best poetry concerns itself with mortality and anguish, and The Lineup explores this terrain with a candor and fearlessness that is sure to shake readers from their slumber. You can keep your 400-page tomes with their windy, discursive narrators -- this is the real stuff, as concentrated and corrosive as a shot of 190-proof Everclear." --Charles Ardai, award-winning author and co-founder of Hard Case Crime // ISSN 1945-7510 // For more information, visit http://poemsoncrime.blogspot.com< Less
