Simpson is more than a poet writing about sports. He is in passionate form. Gurley was a poet and a playwright, and his ability with words is clear. --Bill McClellan, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Sports enthusiasts will enjoy the myriad references to baseball and other sports; those who are more reflective will be taken by profiles of varying kinds of people--some you would rather meet on paper than in person. --St. Louis Journalism Review
Simpson lived in St. Louis, Missouri, and published two books of poetry: Keeping Open and Stealing Home, both through BkMk Press, prior to his death. George Gurley was book review editor and columnist for The Kansas City Star for many years. A resident of Lawrence, Kansas, he is also the author of Fugues in the Plumbing (BkMk Press).
