Trina Carter in Foreword Reviews says of Miguel Ortiz's new Hamilton Stone novel Parental Sins,"Drawing on folkloric traditions, Miguel Antonio Ortiz explores themes of sin and salvation, guilt and atonement, betrayal and forgiveness....By turns philosophical and metaphorical, he manages to poke fun at 'the viability of sin' while considering what it means to have inherited from our original parents 'the guilt that requires having to expiate timeand again the crime of having eaten the apple.'"

James Cervantes's Sleepwalker's Songs seems so sane, its light so much that of the quotidian, that it is only with a certain shock (like that produced by a dream remembered) that one realizes what one has really experienced
