GAHA NOAS ZORGE: a selection
Babes of the Abyss Become Friendly by Jesse Glass
New Sins Press, 2010
"What I really enjoy is Jesse's individual fix on things-the 'strange and wonderful world of Jesse Glass'-there are not enough
poets who have 'strange and wonderful worlds' or if they dothey are not brave enough to display it. There are far too many who
give anecdotal stories in short lines or conversely they are in thrall of the latest theory-bod lauded by academe. It is a breath
of fresh air to hear someone who is a real exployer."

Dancing At Funerals/Selected Plays by Rane Arroyo
ahadada books, 2010
Rane Arroyo began his writing career as a performance artist in Chicago in the 1980's. Seeking collaborations, he became
a playwright and his work has been internationally valued. He is the author of ten books of poems and one book of short
fiction. When asked to describe his plays, he insists that "it's chaos theory falling in love with soap operas." Rane is gay,
Puerto Rican and a Midwestern writer who seeks inclusion in his work and his activism. He works and writes in Toledo, Ohio, with his
partner and many cats. Dancing At Funerals: Selected Plays invites readers to a world of violence, passion, and comedy.
Rane creates characters and plots that capture the hard work that is required to understand tenderness.
