What's their stuff like? Check out these comments:

“ George Wallace has managed to infuse the soul of music into a surreal trip through the heartland of America.”

“ Peter Carlaftes is a brilliant poetic voice, filled with drop-dead humor, searing insight and resilient originality, even while resonating with overtones of Bukowski, Baudelaire and Bogart.”

“ Kat Georges’ poems burst forth with fire and flare; their seeming simplicity belies a depth that rings the heart strings.”

It's going to be a ball--we'd love to see all our friends there! For details, email
