These writers draw a bead on the most hypocritical behavior of our time. You will find them erudite and not afraid to speak the truth. It is hard to put this anthology down. The writers represent some of the top writing talent out there. Their awards and acknowledgements pile high. The words are powerful. The assessments real. The hopes sincere.— David Wagoner, Author of Scratches & ScrapsIf you feel things are worse than usual, if you are horrified by open racism, and if you are ready to hear something that makes sense instead of just doublespeak slogans, this is the book for you. These talented writers catch the issues of the day “In The Crosshairs.”— Sharon Wagoner, Author of The InheritanceIn the Crosshairs is a cry from the point of view of the downtrodden. It is a mirror held up to the face of society, a bellowing call to attention to everything that is wrong with our world today. It is a slap in the face for those who are still sleepwalking, and it’s timely at that.— Benoit Chartier, Author of Red Nexus and AfterdeathIt’s no secret that changing times, economic strife, political upheaval, and social problems both big and small (if there is such a thing) are invariably reflected in art, in particular the written word. It’s all part of the human condition; how we process and come to terms with what happens to and around us. We live in a challenging climate, and this anthology featuring some of the finest up-and-coming poets from around the world captures the very essence of what it means to be a citizen of the world. The conflict, the uncertainty, the greed, the soulnessness, the visceral urge to document the dark underbelly of society as mankind plots its own demise and through it all, that solitary undying flame of hope leading the way to a better future which could be our only salvation.—C.M. Saunders, Journalist and Author of Sker House, Dead of Night, X: Omnibus, and other work
