Altadena Poetry Review: Anthology 2015
By Thelma T. Reyna, Editor

(Winner of 1 national book honor)

This is the fifth published book from national award-winning author, Thelma T. Reyna, and her first as the editor of an anthology. From over 200 poems submitted by 80 Southern California poets, Reyna – working closely with local poets in a selection committee – chose 105 poems by 60 poets, including 3 Poets Laureate and over a dozen award-winners. This is a distinguished group of writers representing diverse cultures, generations, life experiences, and poetic styles. Their voices are authentic, distinct, and focused on the things we as a society care deeply about: family, community, our environment, peace, war, love, art, loss, and hope.

By Thelma T. Reyna

She shows us the human side of everyone in vivid verbal snapshots that grab us and leave us thinking long afterward.

Black Widow Bitches  (2016)
By Victor Cass

(Winner of 4 national book awards)

In this gritty, heart-thumping war epic, Cass takes us into the deadly, blood-soaked world of the first all-female combat infantry division.

The current “War on Terrorism” spirals out of control and engulfs much of the globe. Iconic cities and countries have been reduced to smoldering ruins of hopelessness across Europe and much of the free world, as brutal, rampaging terrorists unite across national, ethnic, and political lines to establish a Caliphate and crush millions of innocent resisters.

Opposed to a draft, the U.S. President asks each American family to send one volunteer to fight. A daring woman Army general, Jennifer Reed, proposes a bold move: training women for full-fledged combat in elite, all-women military units. Despite tremendous odds, her plan is grudgingly accepted, and the history-shattering 135th Airborne Division – the “Black Widows” – are born.
