One of the bright lights of the recent Bikolnon writing renaissance, Kristian Cordero presents in his poetry intimate sketches and portraits of the people and land of his birth. He does this with a confident hand, cool detachment and, very often, with tongue-in-cheek humor.
Fully in command of his material, Cordero's poetic diction deftly fuses real and surreal elements to elicit from the thoughtful reader not only high amusement but also deep understanding.--Luis Cabalquinto

1978-79. Il Tour di Fabrizio De André e PFM rompe più di un tabù. Rivoluziona i rapporti tra parola cantata e musica con una profonda quanto azzardata operazione di rinnovamento, che investe non solo i due artisti ma l'intera musica italiana. Ecco per la prima volta il racconto, per parole e immagini, di un'avventura senza precedenti, fuori dalle logiche del business, dal settarismo dei media e dai pregiudizi del pubblico. Questa è la storia di una sfida, di una nuova iniziazione. È il viaggio di una tribù, tra forti tensioni sociali e frequenti contestazioni, qui ricostruito tappa per tappa attraverso le parole di Franz Di Cioccio, frontman e batterista della PFM, che di quel tour ebbe la folgorante idea, e le fotografie di Guido Harari, che di quella avventura volle a tutti i costi essere il fotografo ufficiale. A loro si unisce un nutrito coro di testimonianze rilasciate dai protagonisti di allora e da alcuni artisti amici.
The hunt for a killer leads to a battle between justice and desire… For U.S. marshal Rourke Kincaid, there's the law…and then there's his law. When the two don't agree, he always trusts his instincts. A killing spree has gripped the Northwest, showing a strange connection that only he sees, and now the old rules of justice no longer apply. Forced to turn rogue, he goes deep undercover to track his mysterious female suspect to a quiet, unassuming café in the wild, isolated mountains of Beartooth, Montana. But encountering Callie Westfield complicates his mission in ways he never expected. As suspicious as she seems, her fragile beauty and sexy charm get to Rourke. Then the gory crimes begin anew. With his heart suddenly at war with his instincts, he has only two options. Either turn Callie over to the law, or put everything—including his badge and his life—on the line to protect her.
A young woman caught in the rivalry between Queen Mary and her half sister, Elizabeth, must find her true destiny amid treason, poisonous rivalries, loss of faith, and unrequited love. It is winter, 1553. Pursued by the Inquisition, Hannah Green, a fourteen-year-old Jewish girl, is forced to flee Spain with her father.
But Hannah is no ordinary refugee. Her gift of "Sight," the ability to foresee the future, is price in the troubled times of the Tudor court. Hannah is adopted by the glamorous Robert Dudley, the charismatic son of King Edward's protector, who brings her to court as a "holy fool" for Queen Mary and, ultimately, Queen Elizabeth.
Hired as a fool but working as a spy; promised in wedlock but in love with her master; endangered by the laws against heresy, treason, and witchcraft, Hannah must choose between the safe life of a commoner and the dangerous intrigues of the royal family that are inextricably bound up in her own yearnings and desires. Teeming with vibrant period detail and peopled by characters seamly woven into the sweeping tapestry of history, The Queen's Fool is another rich and emotionally resonant gem from this wonderful storyteller.

Sample Poems Dictionary As a small south american squirrel inhabiting mostly mountainous regions would feed on lizards half-way between poles of the tropics, I too would fall heartbreaked in the settlement of feuds of the fields of kentucky. When the moss grows high between the perennials and disordered mimmocks weep, these dainty fastidious gestating mammals break for leavened bread and sup between the rows of trees, lifting like friars some heavy books in the sunlight's morning windows where the mollusks row in scion's quadragesimal phyla.

The New Life I eat steak and live on the big neon avenue and fear strangers, admire my neighbors, the drug store, and the bus, I was an addict live addicted to the avenue, in the dark folds late at night, addicted to sleep and lavender, I went into the liquor store to buy a bottle of wine, loving you and the liquor store, the lavender bottles, the many directions.... PART TWO Today I am rivets of sails in a log cabin where Jack London lived in Alaska until they moved his cabin here where we collect the change to buy our drinks and eat the free hors d'oeuvres, where the neighbors are somewhat pleased beside the railroad trains, where the vague sense of the Union Pacific is with opssums of freeways and you, where the airplanes fill the plastic sky, where the fish are brightly colored on the lawn, where an underwater bird is pummeled on the sidestreet, where we take hallucinogens and wander through museums, where the people construct the atificial ponds, where
