Xanath Caraza - Poet, Traveler, and Educator

Anyone interested and moved by incredible poetry? Would you love to hear it read by the poet herself? Listen to Xanath Caraza reading some of her poetry at the website: Phonodia. My personal favorite is Tormenta followed by Yanga - a close second. I've had the honor of reaching out to her and am happy to report she has been most amiable and gracious. Thank you so much Xanath, I wish you the best, and continued success.

If you enjoy her work as much as I do, look out for and pick up her latest work, Corazon Pintado: Ekphrastic Poems.

Book Review

Review of Frank Lechuga's novel, LOM

LOM is a refreshing rush of adrenaline. Bullets spray and radials peel-out as a disciplined warrior seeks justice. Go on the hunt with Pointe as he and his prototype metacar roam about the back-roads of humanity. Set in a future society that has been further segregated into what are called Brown and Green Zones, out-lands are splintered as the Tao of Hwarang is called upon to battle neo-warlords and their gang-banging minions. Lechuga delivers a dystopian world that hits the reader's senses with a vengeance. - Adrian Mendoza, author of The Kaleidoscope series.
