"The poetry of Horace Coleman is sharp and uncompromising--but invincibly warm, as well."

----Gwendolyn Brooks

"Horace Coleman's In The Grass is a book of darkness and revelation. Here are poems filled with ammunition that penetrate not flesh but soul. Coleman's memories of Vietnam are not war stories--instead they capture moments when blackness is the battlefield. This is a book for careful readers."
----E. Ethelbert Miller, Director, African-American Resource Center, Howard University

"If he weren't writing about war's everyday horrors, I might almost be tempted to say that Horace Coleman's poems are "refreshing." Where else would you find the 'Hood, the 'Nam, Star Trek, Shaka Zulu, Kipling's Tommy Atkins poems,and East Dante's Hell coexisting and cohabiting in a 'sturdy existential shipping carton'?"

----Vince Gotera, author of Radical Visions: Poetry by Vietnam Veterans
