The Only Dead Elephant in the Fair
by Jordan Cox
Foreword by Ricardo Cortez Cruz

“Jordan Cox is a beast…I wouldn’t be surprised if Cox, like Bigfoot, becomes a worldwide phenomenon.”

—Ricardo Cortez Cruz, author of Straight Outta Compton

Inspired by Anne Carson’s Nox and other visual fictions, Jordan Cox’s The Only Dead Elephant in the Fair is a compelling work that masterfully blends visual and textual artifacts, pushing the limits of graphic narrative and fiction. Weaving together several threads of story, Cox crafts a loosely composed metanarrative that provides an unflinching look at the fragmented nature of a family living with the specter of abuse. The Only Dead Elephant in the Fair is a richly innovative text worthy of multiple reads.

Thoughts Like:
by Evan Nave
Outtro by Ricardo Cortez Cruz

“Evan Nave cuts and pastes potentially joyful and traumatic experiences like it is nothing…He’ll be one tough act to follow.”

—Ricardo Cortez Cruz, author of Straight Outta Compton

The poems of Evan Nave’s Thoughts Like: explore the experiences and mental deliberations of a person discovering and coping with the effects of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Blending humor with a meditative stance, Nave creates subtle poems and introspective thought catalogs that will invite readers to examine their own productions of childhood, cognition, and obsession through the fleeting images that comprise our most essential memories. If every line of poetry is a neural pathway, then Nave’s Thoughts Like: establishes a network connecting author with reader through the synaptic interplay of language.
