In the August 8, 2012, edition of The Monitor, an article on Mexican Bestiary was featured: http://www.themonitor.com/entertainment/local-62832-bowles-brujas.html
Authors have already begun to express their delight at Mexican Bestiary. Here are a few quotes:
“It ranks right up there with Stories That Must Not Die by Juan Sauvageau. Puro Cucuys!”
-Xavier Garza (Award-winning author of Creepy Creatures and Other Cucuys & Maximilian and the Mystery of the Guardian Angel)
“What a fantastic resource! I love the content and the many, many creatures included here.”
-Guadalupe Garcia McCall (author of Under the Mesquite, winner of the Pura Belpré Author Medal and William C Morris 2012 Finalist)
“For me, books like this are a necessity. I mine them for new ideas. But I recommend this one because of its particular regional flair. It speaks to me of the Rio Grande Valley and Mexico, of dust and sun and cool nights and demons that walk the earth. Feathered coyotes and devils at the dance, chupacabras and horsemen that warn of impending plague. I really recommend Mexican Bestiary and hope you pick it up.”
-Jason Henderson (author of the Alex Van Helsing series): http://blogofdracula.blogspot.com/2012/07/review-mexican-bestiary.html
In the Sunday, August 7, 2011 edition of The Monitor an article discussing VAO Publishing and the 2011 anthology was printed by Crystal Olvera. Along with the report, Olvera excerpted “Lord Tlacuache Brings Fire to Man,” the story contributed by editor David Bowles.
Leviathan Wakes is the first novel in The Expanse, a science-fiction series penned by James S.A. Corey (a pseudonym for authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck). Evenly split between the points-of-view of Joe Miller (an aging, has-been police detective on the asteroid Ceres) and Jim Holden (a handsome and “righteous” former navy officer now serving as XO of an ice-mining vessel), Leviathan Wakes is a riveting book, the sort of adrenaline-charged, politically savvy, intensely human tale that I love to stumble across.
