Under the Devil's Thumb
In mid-2017, Nederland, Colorado editor and book publisher Janette Taylor decided that was once again time for local poets and writers to be in the limelight. Soliciting poems, short stories and essays from authors throughout the Peak-to-Peak region, she assembled an extraordinary editorial board to jury the submissions. The result is this volume: an example of Collective Consciousness, as common themes erupted and developed during the assembly of the anthology, themes including our relationship with The Wild, and the resulting personal transformation emerged in the process. "Under the Devil's Thumb" (the Devil's Thumb being a local geophysical landmark known to everyone who hikes the region) is not just for mountain denizens, but anyone who enjoys damn good storytelling and wordplay.
