Ramón García Is the author of two books of poetry, The Chronicles, Red Hen Press, and Other Countries, What Books Press, and a monograph on the artist Ricardo Valverde from the University of Minnesota Press. Yusef Komunyakaa says, "Ramón García's The Chronicles is wondrously deceptive. At first we may think we know the folkloric stuff dreams are made of, but soon one is inside a unique world where, through language and ritual, an edgy authority speaks through metaphor, chronicling the underbelly of the spoken and unspoken, and at times even the unspeakable. The Chronicles unearths things we didn't know we knew—surprising, new, clear-eyed twists and turns. This collection of urgent poems, partly woven from stories inherited, sings through the past to the present and future." García's poetry has appeared in a variety of journals and anthologies, including Springhouse Journal, Best American Poetry 1996, Ambit, The Floating Borderlands: Twenty-Five Years of US-Hispanic Literature, Poetry Salzburg Review, Los Angeles Review, Mandorla: New Writing from the Americas, and Plume. A chapbook is forthcoming from Foundlings Press in November. He teaches at California State University, Northridge and lives in downtown Los Angeles.

Karen Kevorkian's new book is Quivira, from Three: A Taos Press. Christopher Merrill says, "Karen Kevorkian's dazzling new collection of poems explores the ways in which time can be measured in movement—in her case through the vast, riveting, and often bewildering spaces of the American West. Voices, familiar and otherwise, inhabit these poems, which ceaselessly interrogate the land and its varieties of human and nonhuman experience: "what an idea trying to outrun / the fire," she writes, "in a moment / on you." No one escapes the fire in these poems, which will burn for a very long time to come." Karen Kevorkian is the author of two previous collections, White Stucco Black Wing, Red Hen Press, and Lizard Dream, What Books Press. Her work appears in The Antioch Review, Michigan Quarterly Review, Denver Quarterly, Colorado Review, Los Angeles Review of Books, and elsewhere. She received fellowships from the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation, MacDowell Colony, Millay Colony, Ucross Foundation, and Djerassi Foundation.
