From Neon Literary Magazine
'"Loons" by Michael Hettich is a haunting, quiet narrative poem in which the writer and his father swim out into the middle of a lake. This can be contrasted with the much more humorous "Robinson Crusoe" by Lockie Hunter, which takes the form of a list of song titles which, read in sequence, tell the story of the famous shipwreck novel. It's a credit to the anthology that having these two pieces printed together doesn't feel uneven or ill-planned.' — Read the entire review from Neon Literary Magazine.
