THE DIARY OF SNOW ARISEN available for sale

Dear Everyone: My latest poetry collection THE DIARY OF SNOW ARISEN is now available for sale through the BLURB bookstore.  This collection constitutes poems written up to the end of 2019, informed by the beauty of a natural world with recurring themes of foxes’ eyes, petals falling into pools, paintbrushes of wind and moonlight, and the storyteller who gathers the fallen feathers of life and weaves them into our winter food.  These poems are full of love’s migrations and harmonic explorations and the song-shadows of birds.

RETURNING TO THE WAVES

Dear Everyone: My futuristic novella RETURNING TO THE WAVES is now available for sale through the Blurb Bookstore.  It is about a group of people living on the beach after the rest of humanity has transformed themselves into all kinds of crazy other life-forms and took off into the cosmos basically abandoning their human bodies and even becoming new planets.  But these people decided that cooking wild food and dancing in the moonlight with giant toads (on earth) was just as peachy as turning into some vast nebulaeic consciousness or some new unheard-of aquatic entity on some other planet where the water’s purple.  But, of course, there’s two people, Anacropolis Copius and BT Abernathy, who are attempting to reinstate civilization even though there’s no one really to reinstate it onto.  Can these two groups get along even though they have vastly different ideas of what constitutes art and nutrition?  Find out what happens when you attend an out-of-body cooking class in this novella about star-crossed love and the end of the world. https://www.blurb.com/b/9997728-returning-to-the-waves
