Rogue Warrior: Seize the Day by Richard Marcinko
Review by Tracy Satterlee

"Temptation" by Glen Dakin
Reviewed by John Platt

On the surface "Temptation" seems simplistic. It features just two main characters: a hermit, living in the desert, and the devil who is trying to buy his soul. Each one-page strip (there are  about 75) features the hermit and the devil in a battle of wits.

"Fabulous Small Jews" by Joseph Epstein
Reviewed by Andrea Speed

These stories have a unique common theme--middle-aged, mostly male, Jews in Chicago, all facing a turning point in their lives. It sounds narrow, so it's all the more amazing that Epstein manages to make this volume as engaging as it is.
