Burning Number Five was one of two manuscripts selected for the 2014 Blue Horse Press Poetry Chapbook contest. Contest judge Larry D. Thomas, 2008 Texas Poet Laureate, writes:
Of the countless poetry collections I have been privileged to enjoy over the years, few indeed have been as startlingly original as Burning Number Five: Power Plant Poems….These poems … illuminate, with subtlety and consummate artistic skill, the broader concepts of human labor and the paradoxical relationship between humans and technology. Burning Number Five is a memorable, seamless merging of art and science.
