".each of Olga's cuentos stands out in bold testimony to our flourishing as a people in Urban América. These are puro chicano stories, tales of urban survival drawn from its most vulnerable and visionary inhabitants." -Cherríe Moraga, author of Loving in the War Years
".The women and men in these pages make us think, laugh, and feel proud; they are conocidos speaking in real speak. Without a doubt, this unique collection establishes Olga as a lengualistic code-switching queen!" -Elba R. Sánchez, escritora and editor

KOP, Ex-KOP reading in Denver
One of the best times I had at WorldCon this summer in Denver was spent with Kat Richardson author of Underground, Warren Hammond and Mario Acevedo whose latest book has just come out--The Undead Kama Sutra, the third in his Felix Gomez vampire series (reviewed by Michael Sedano on La Bloga on Sept. 16, last month). I only managed to partake of some Japanese cuisine and copious amounts of drinks with them, but hanging out with three published novelists whetted my appetite to be discovered.
Warren Hammond was the nicest guy, and if his writing is as good--which I can't yet attest to--you can check him out this weekend in Denver. Warren will discuss and sign his newest book, Ex-KOP, a futuristic thriller in the noir tradition, which brings heartbreak and redemption for the flawed hero of Warren’s first book, KOP. Copies of KOP, in both hardcover and mass market paperback will also be available. All at 10% off cover price.
