Whitegirl by Kate Manning

A good effort for a first novel, and one that shows promise for Manning's future endeavors.


That Takes Ovaries! Edited by Rivka Solomon

Empowerment is quite the prevalent theme in this book.


One More for the Road by Ray Bradbury

Mr. Bradbury can conjure up, in just a few deceptively throwaway sentences, more meaning and insight than most other authors could provide in many, many pages.


The Eye of Cybele by Daniel Chavarria (Translated by Carlos Lopez)

Akashic gives us 'The Eye of Cybele', a novel set as far away in space and time from his last as it is possible to be.


Chicken, Self-Portrait of a Young Man for Rent by David Henry Sterry

Sterry, a chicken no longer, brave enough to tell his tale, hoping it will do others some good.


Conversations with Richard Ford by Huey Guagliardo, Editor

Ford just may be the least catty writer in history. 'Other people's successes do not diminish you, your failures don't help others.'"


American Cultural Studies Edited by Catherine A. Warren and Mary Douglas Vavrus

'Are we, as intellectuals, really all that qualified to lead society?' she remarks, then later states succinctly, 'The public is us.'"

The Oprah Winfrey Show

Oprah Winfrey and her Ego live in a world of their own, her highly successful 'O' magazine further illustrates her epic distance from the reality of most Americans.


Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones

So in a post-September 11th world replete with conflicts from Afghanistan to continuous Palestinian-Israeli disputes, the lines between good and evil often seem blurry, and the cut-and-dry antics of galactic warriors instill a sense of hope, a realization of what morality should be. Who would've thought that the likes of Yoda, Obi Wan Kenobi and Chewbacca would serve as heroes for a celluloid generation whose sense of a world order would become crystal clear as a result of a few fictional characters?"
