Los Angeles poet Michael C Ford wrote: “…I paged slowly thru Mas Tequila and assimilated what turned out to be total ambrosia… not a false note in these poems, practically seamless integrity of language… a lesson all who do indie publishing should learn: only print the words which have the ring of truth.”
Poet and retired UNM professor E.A. “Tony” Mares writes: "In the Malpaís Review, the words of poetry turn the badlands of the heart and of the disappearing natural landscape into fertile vistas for a better world, for the good lands we all desire."
