Winner of the Gival Press Novel Award
by Robert Schirmer
“There’s a serial killer on the loose, and in the fishbowl setting of Robert Schirmer’s Barrow’s Point, ‘shadow selves’ of fear overtake the town’s residents. No one can be trusted. Schirmer peoples his remarkable book with characters conflicted by their own discordant passions and prejudices. The writing is sensuous, the plot unpredictable, and the upshot brilliantly captures the unease of our times.”
—Ann Cummins, author of Red Ant House and Yellowcake

Abandoned Earth: poems
Winner of the Gival Press Poetry Award
by Linwood D. Rumney
“In Abandoned Earth, Linwood Rumney creates a world both menacing and comforting at once. While wide-eyed with wonder at life’s sorrows, joys and mysteries, he maintains an understated tone that enables him to relate even the strangest events with a measured and convincing voice. This beautifully written collection contains what few books of poetry manage: high spirits, a keen eye and, above all, span embracing wisdom.”
—John Skoyles, Ploughshares Poetry Editor and author of Suddenly Its Evening: Selected Poems

by Teri Ellen Cross Davis
Inaugural Publication in the Giron/Valdez Series for Unique Voices in Literature
“Teri Cross Davis has the courage to make this complex experience come to life, to address it, to let her readers know what it feels like, and to tell them she will go on, facing and giving life to a new level of understanding that is seldom addressed.”
—Myra Sklarew, author of Harmless
“Haint is a book of life. Not a book of survival, though the poet survives, not a book of reckoning, though the poet comes to terms with many things. Haint is a book of choices, and witnessing. A book of learning the bodies territories, pleasures and sorrows. A book that constructs the irrepressible center of a soul, page by page, plank by plank. A book a reader will put down after reading and mutter yes to themselves, haunted.”—Cornelius Eady
