Locating Oneself in the Complex Continuum of Dana Ward’s This Can’t Be Life January 10, 2013: Joshua Ware reviews Dana Ward's This Can't Be Life, noting a certain "draining effect" and inscribing that with positive complexity.

“The Crisis of Infinite Worlds” July 19, 2012: Dana Ward on video at the Huffington Post! What's it all about?
