"A rollicking, thought-provoking, roller-coaster of a novel. It's time traveling on steroids, but it asks big questions. Bravo."
- Ken Burns, filmmaker
"An extravagantly imaginative writer…It's amazing to read something so fresh and vivid tying us back into the roots of this land and the people who knew it first."
- Orson Scott Card, author of 'Ender's Game'
"Sacred Mounds draws you right into the action with high energy prose, strands of mystery floating in the wind, and lively characters. A great read, with Metzner's usual deep insights into the amazing workings of the natural world seeping into you while you are caught up in the flow. Enjoy!"
- Robert Thurman, President, Tibet House U.S.

"Violent, surreal, and dripped in suspense and intrigue, reading Ryan A. Kovacs' poetic thriller feels like watching a movie directed by Nicholas Winding Refn."
- Pikasho Deka, READERS' FAVORITE
"Audiences who study the epic poem structure typically receive little modern renditions in this style. The N.M.E. is such a creation and resides in a class of its own...a thought-provoking psychological and social examination of pain and redemption on different levels."
- Diane Donovan, Editor, MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW
"A high-stakes, darkly intriguing work of verse fiction…."
- THE PRAIRIES BOOK REVIEW
Co-authored by Doug Campbell & John Casey
At the behest of his brother John, Keith Conway returns home to New England after a long absence. Their mother's health is in decline, and she may not have much time left. A cryptic message from her leaves them wondering if their grandfather's death decades ago was in fact a freak accident, or if there may have been foul play. Though John puts up with Keith's attempt to discover the truth, he ultimately sours on it. Keith presses on, all the time unsure if he's helping or hurting his family. He wonders as well if the truth is as sinister as it seems, and whether it might be best for all involved to leave it buried...

Meridian: A Raw Thoughts Book is John Casey's follow-up to the National Book Award and Griffin Poetry Prize-nominated RAW THOUGHTS: A Mindful Fusion of Poetic and Photographic Art. Photography by Scott Hussey. Available everywhere books are sold.
“In Meridian, John Casey and Scott Hussey tap into the depths of untempered emotions while challenging our conceptions of reality. The reader is drawn in, voyeuristically, to an entire spectrum of life’s untamed circumstances.”
- RITA BAKER, Poet and Author of Born Of Love, Of Breeding And Birth, My Dear Cousin Sadie, and Victim of Circumstances
“Meridian triumphs in its ability to capture the human experience with perfect balance of image and written word, heart and mind, shadow and light, vice and virtue, despair and resilience. I did not expect to be so emotionally impacted by its seamless photo-poetic dance, all the while challenged to reflect on what it means to be truly alive.”
- KEVIN BASIK, PhD, Leadership and Character Development Speaker & Sherpa
