Well, speaking of 5th anniversaries, I didn't realize Meritage Press and Marsh Hawk Press were birthed in the same year! Which means, this one-person Meritage Press must now direct left hand to high-five the right hand for the following list, in chronological order, which shows that I bested my original goal of one book a year! With sore palms, I'm pleased to note:
