As described by the American Academy of Poets, "The pantoum is a poem of any length, composed of four-line stanzas in which the second and fourth lines of each stanza serve as the first and third lines of the next stanza. The last line of a pantoum is often the same as the first."

In The Poet and The Architect, Christine Stewart Nunez provides a reflective, textured collection of poetry that seamlessly tells a story of contrasts. The masterful conceit of this book is the love story between opposites - a poet and an architect.

Available from Terrapin Books.

Bare Bones Anthology

This ghoulish collection of poetry and short stories is inspired by Halloween around the world. There are many celebrations world wide to honor the dead. Each putting their own spin on tradition. In the United States children dress in costumes and collect candy from neighbors. In Mexico they pay homage to deceased loved ones during Día de Los Muertos. In Ireland they celebrate Samhain. No matter how you celebrate, the day is charged with excitement and spooktacular fun. This anthology is full of accounts of tradition and how the human psyche processes life, death, and the spirit realm.

Featuring "Recipe for a Perfect Halloween Costume"
