'Then: October, Friday () Stifel's solace, prison - protection from the outraged living.' -October 13th Art happens when another glimpses a sight so profound that his brush transfers the vision in an otherly dimension. And so it is with words-a poet wields nib and ink across papyrus canvas unleashes verse' kaleidoscopic magic. Such is the artistic literary gallery that is Kristie Betts Letter's unforgettably unique Under-Worldly. (Don't look back.)- J.L. Skirvin, editor of STARK poetry journal, award-winning author of FACE and Snow Sizzling in Soleil

I enjoyed Kristie Betts Letter’s technique in Under Worldly. It was powerful, the way she created full color, full imagined stories with the fewest of words. She does a masterful job of telling a story, which you may not fully appreciate until you reach the end. Letter’s poetry is clean and precise and very evocative. I lingered on within the pages, pausing over the lines of print and drawing a small set of words to a fully developed scene. “Brick House” took my again to my own childhood home, and it will probably take you to yours, too. While many of Letter’s poems were simple to process, others I read through several times, pausing and appreciating the rhythms caused by my voice rising
into the air, before the comprehension dawned and the fog shifted away. It’s a collection well worth recommendation.
