Gary Francisco Keller Editor- GOOD BANDIT, WARRIOR WOMEN, AND REVOLUTIONARIES IN HISPANIC CULTURE

GOOD BANDITS, WARRIOR WOMEN, AND REVOLUTIONARIES IN HISPANIC CULTURE

edited by Gary Francisco Keller

Part of the larger Bold caballeros and Noble Bandidas project at Arizona State University’s Hispanic Research Center, GOOD BANDITS, WARRIOR WOMEN, AND REVOLUTIONARIES IN HISPANIC CULTURE is the fruit of a grandbreaking conference that was held in Phoenix in 2009. Following an introduction by Gary Francisco Keller, the first section of this book contains articles dedicated to good, good-bad, and bad characters, both fictional and historical across Hispanic culture, among them gay caballeros, the heroes and villians of “Zapata” Westerns, and Don Quixote. The second section explores personages from popular culture and from novels set in the decades just before and during the Mexican revolution of 1910, such as Demetrio Macias in Azuela’s LOS DE ABAJO; Augustias Farrera, the title character of the novel and film LA NEGRA ANGUSTIAS; Sant Teresa de Cabora and her villainous sister Jovita; Pancho Villa’s transformation from bandit/revolutionary to popular saint and hero of the people; and Jesusa Palancares, the fictionalized soldadera of Poniatowska’s HASTA NO VERTE JESUS MIO.

The authors include Santiago Daydi-Tolson, David William Foster, Carlo Gaberseek, Robert McKee Irwin, Kristin Guorun Jonsdottir, Laura Kanost, Margarita Lopez Lopez, Gonzalo Sobejano, and Emil Volek.

Gary Francisco Keller is Director of the Hispanic Research Center at Arizona State University and coproducer with Melanie Magisos of the Bold Caballeros and Noble Bandidas Web site: http://noblebandits.asu.edu/.

Madeline Roux Author- ALLISON HEWITT IS TRAPPED

ALLISON HEWITT IS TRAPPED

by Madeline Roux

The Review was taken from THE PLOT TIMES, a publication of Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore

“Ok, are we burned out yet on zombie apocalypse stories? Well, my surprising answer is a hearty NO! Madeline Roux has written a unique, funny, and thrilling adventure with a twist. Her heroine, Allison is trapped, just like the title suggests, facing a zombie outbreak. She works in a chain bookstore, Brooks and Peabody, and is trapped along with her manager and four others in the break room. These back rooms, for those not in the know, are usually depressing enough already. But being trapped with nothing Mountain Dew and nacho flavored Doritos to consume is a real challenge. Allison turns to her laptop and uses the military emergency wireless network to start a blog. While she and her companions face orange lips and fingers, along with a caffeine high, Allison reaches out to others, finding comfort and much needed information about the world outside the stifling break room, which by the way, lacks adequate reading material for being in a bookstore. Allison is desperate to find information about her mother, and soon realizes that she and her companions will have to venture out to face the ravenous, but slow moving zombiies and the sometimes even more dangerous humans. Luckily Allison’s axe wielding skills improve with time and practice. I higly recommend this unique take on the popular zombie genre. St. Martin’s Griffin, tpo, $14.99”- LNT
