Twenty-four poets, including Charlie Mehrhoff; two fiction pieces, one by Sam Silva; reviews; and two artists, one of whom is premier folk-iconist Wayne Hogan. All this and more in a single publication--leaves me gasping. There's also a fictional account of of institutionalized schizophrenia, and an arresting article on Robert Bly's IRON JOHN. DOG RIVER is pleasant and metaphor rich, placing modern personifications in traditional free verse forms. A few of the poems are like haiku, others resemble dreams, abstracts having swift philosophical axes to swing.--R.R. Lee Etzwiler
