Congratulations to Caleb Puckett on the great review of his Mammoth book Fate Lines / Desire Lines by Eileen Tabios for Galatea Resurrects. Her review begins: Caleb Puckett“Swerve! Cheerful swerve! Wow: I was not expecting so much pleasure in Caleb Puckett’s FATE LINES / DESIRE LINES which I picked up desultorily one afternoon (I’d already pushed away another award-winning poetry book for trying to force me into a premature siesta). Well, Puckett’s poems blew away the lethargy from the house and woke me up! And the poems did so with much fresh lines. The innovative diction makes it difficult for the eye to pass by. Instead, the reading slows so that one can see one of the collection’s strengths: imagery.” Read the entire Tabios review at  Order from or see the Caleb Puckett web page, under Authors M to Z.
