Poetry. Elizabeth Soto's is a beautiful elegy to an artist who suffered schizophrenia, as well as an examination of mental illness and suicide. It is also a love poem. "What do I remember?" she asks; what she finds are pieces puzzled together in collage form to make, if not a whole, then an evocation of events and emotions associated with schizophrenia. "I remember he was terrified of everything," she answers. Once a student of archeology, Soto is able to peel back layers of feeling without flinching, offering the reader a poem that works both on the page and in performance.

The rogue has arrived. His army has taken Plattsville, and he knows where the ancients hide. He has come for them. He has come for the heir, and he has come for the ancient carriage that can redeem power. Yet, first, he has plans for Josh and his growing band of hunters and the refugees that they stole from his farm. They are cornered now, there in that deathtrap of a junkyard. Here, Josh will die. But the rogue does not know all. For instance, he does not know about the woman that Jasper keeps in his pocket nor her secrets in the shadows that you have seen, but he has not. Today, vengeance fights vengeance, and the piper must be paid. Tomorrow, there will be many graves.
