by Larry Flewin
The Private Investigator, long hours, irregular pay, the only reward self-preservation. Hardly an incentive for the career minded. Which doesn’t explain Tony Ford, a long in the tooth PI, and survivor.
His lunch is liquid, his life is singular, and his attitude towards his fellow man is as grimy as the streets he prowls. He’s not rich but he’s not dead.
Second by second, clue by clue, on the trail and on the case right to the bitter end. Endings always seem to surprise, but then coincidence has a habit of being like that. Was the fortune the real goal?
by Martin Bueno
A wheelchair-bound politician Graham Walden, leader of the New World Society Party of Canada, and his assistant and friend Eva Trenholm are pulled into a world of magical practices when Graham sends Eva to attend a deep trance psychic session on his behalf.
Graham has been unable to walk his entire life — will a new drug or a magical cure allow him to walk again?
by Guinotte Wise
Scattered Cranes is a bit of an elegy to time spent rodeoing, roughnecking and doing construction work on bridges across bodies of water large and small in those areas of America that the coastal-bound fly over, barely registering the beauty of the farmland patterns and jungles below. Then clouds form a protective layer. There is no protective layer in Scattered Cranes. Some of it is down and dirty, while other passages are dreamlike and aspirational, with a thread of humour. And where there is humour, there is optimism. As the foreword says, it’s like rodeo, you’re out there with your try. Scattered Cranes is a bustling, dusty arena for Wise’s excellent try. Enjoy it.
“…a compelling and essential collection of bare-knuckle poetry.” — Ben Banyard, Editor/Publisher, Clear Poetry, UK
“Expect Wise’s world to stay inside you after you’ve read it, and roll to the surface for attention like a memory or a dream.” — Chelsea Laine Wells, Writer, Fiction Editor Hypertext, Hypernova, (b)Oink
“Wise’s collection is both hauntingly nostalgic and piercingly urgent . . .” — Jen Knox, Author of After the Gazebo and The Glass City
