Author Alan Gann

We Americans sure do love our entertainment. Summer is the season of blockbuster movies, concerts, and binge-watching our favorite television series. And what’s the harm in a little distraction, right? Alan Gann’s poetry collection, That’s Entertainment, examines American culture, both past and present, and entertainment’s influence on our everyday lives.

The Shoeshine Boy by Melvin Sterne

Melvin Sterne writes ‘The Shoeshine Boy,’  a literary science fiction novel set in the Texas borderlands

Review by Katherine Hoerth

When you first open The Shoeshine Boy, you’ll be pulled into the Texas/Mexico borderlands in the 1920s, a world of cartels, violence and poverty. The Shoeshine Boy will keep you questioning what’s real, what’s imagined, and ultimately, what it means to be human.
