Praise for Watching the Perseids: The Backwaters Press Twentieth Anniversary Anthology

” This anthology is written by an eclectic group of seekers, who search through the mornings when all is fresh and bright and new and beautiful, to the darknesses of loss and despair, and find many occasions between those poles to recognize and celebrate the bright moments to which they are often treated as they search, and to come to some understanding or acceptance of their losses and griefs.”

— Greg Kosmicki, Founding Editor of The Backwaters Press
