The Horse (2024)
Willy Vlautin
"There's not another writer out there, living or dead, that I trust with my heart more than Willy Vlautin, and he breaks it every damn time. In Al Ward's love and loss, in his decency, his pathos, and his struggle to endure, Vlautin has gifted us a paean to the power of song. The Horse is another classic from one of America's greatest storytellers."

Crow Talk (2024)
Eileen Garvin
"This novel did more than just engage me as a reader, it completely transported me. Crow Talk is keenly observant, highly atmospheric, and full of hope. Garvin writes with great warmth and pathos about the majesty of the natural world, as well as the untamed wilds of the human heart."

Northward Dreams (2024)
Craig Lancaster
"Sheer reading pleasure; at turns funny, heartbreaking, suspenseful, and cathartic."
