    It’s the year of 2020
    Which no one will forget,
    When we fought a lethal virus
    That posed a deadly threat.
    Mel rhymes her way through lockdown,
    It enables her to cope,
    And in her witty verses
    Spreads positivity and hope,

    Never before had the destruction of Richard Wentworih, alias the Spider, seemed so imminent. For El Crocodilo, mysterious crime king from the past, forestalled Dick’s every move — even influencing Nita van Sloan to lead the man she loved into the most perfect deathtrap ever set to catch the Master of Men! Harried on all sides, the target of Underworld assassins and police arrest warrants alike, the Spider gives no quarter as he races to bring another vicious supercriminal to justice. Follow the Spider, Master of Men, as he dodges gangland guns and police bullets in another roller coaster ride of an adventure! Dictator’s Death Merchants is torn from the pages of the July, 1940 issue of The Spider magazine.

    Amy Shimshon-Santo's EVEN THE MILKY WAY IS UNDOCUMENTED is a testament to the lost, the loved, the courageous. Each poem is the past and the future. Each page turns for those built by families that span political borders -- families that see borders as nothing more than lines drawn by an invisible hand that's long forgotten that we belong to the earth and not the other way around.

    With cameos by jackalopes, Glenn Gould, homemade spaceships and Carl Linnaeus, these poems are remarkable for their technical agility and their restless inventiveness. There's anelegance here that matches Dodds' impulse to challenge the reader with fresh metaphor and astonishing phrasing; the formal ambitions of many of the poems in  Crabwise to the Hounds  are balanced by an inclination towards wordplay and abright musicality. Humorous at times, yet always handled with consummate craft, these poems invoke historical figures like Hiram Bingham and Ho Chi Minh even as they traverse a poetic landscape that includes telephone-game-style translations, interpretive dance poems on historic paintings and carnivalesque jaunts into a natural world overrun with mules, Alsatians, lions, and motorcycle-sized-deer.
