The Party is Here

WORD: An Anthology by A Gathering of the Tribes

 

Mark and the Queen Fish

Buy your copy at Amazon.com or read it for free with Kindle Unlimited.

Mark and the Queen Fish is the first in The Magic Path series of fairy tales. Publication March, 2017.

Available for purchase in paperback ($6.95) or e-book ($2.99) format. You can read the e-book for free with Kindle Unlimited.

A long time ago the people of the seaside city of Mara had everything that they needed, and knew how to talk with the creatures of the sea. But times changed.

Mark only knows what it is like to serve the Inlanders who conquered Mara long before he was born. He is angry that his mother is disrespected, and doesn’t want her to have to work so hard.  Impatient for change, he decides to take action.

When the King sends Mark to jail, Mark dreams of a giant fish that speaks to him. He carves her picture on his cell wall and the Jailer punishes him for his handiwork. But a mysterious little girl with flowing green hair comes from the beach and gives him a blue stone to paint with.

Book Release Party for Word: An Anthology

Steve Cannon has been the engine behind A Gathering of the Tribes the magazine, gallery, performance series, community gathering that is Tribes, for decades. Word, An Anthology is a collection of works by some of the cast of characters who passed through and left something while they were there. It would probably be impossible to include everyone, but I am happy to say that I have a few of my note poems in there. I haven’t laid my hands on it or even seen the cover yet, but I can’t wait to read through every page.

I wish that I could be there for this event, which would be nostalgic for me if I did go. If you’re in the NYC area on April Fool’s day, please get to this HOWL!  Happening in Loisaida, a reading and book release party. While you’re there say hello to everyone for me and tell them I sent you!

Einstein’s Mind

Announcing the digital release of “Einstein’s Mind,” a story from the book Dreamscape, Real Dreams Really Make a Difference. Following the positive response to the release of the live recording on WBAI Radio, of “Mella and the Python Healer,” “Einstein’s Mind,” is from the same radio broadcast.

The eleven minute story describes Albert’s childhood, including that he hated school and renounced his German citizenship while still a minor. The high school dropout eventually found himself in the Swiss Alps where he theorized about relativity. Fact checked by Dr. Michio Kaku, the story illustrates the idea of relativity by taking listeners on a train ride.

Accompaniment on upright bass is by Bobby Vidal and a soundtrack created by Cooper-Moore.

You can listen to the entire story for free right here on this page, or purchase it now for $1.99 at cdbaby.com. You can also search for the title on Spotify, I-Heart, Pandora and other internet radio stations.

Cuntry Grab

in the mirror
made in China
what is behind me
is before me

i see

buffalo no roam
truces trails nooses nails

slaves paths paved
fathers founding free
ejacular college lock her rooms
dark sons dark daughters dark secrets
times three over five equals

ours tis of thee of me

steel bars
beer bars
code bars
prison bars
greasing grinding greed

far away from here
from there
from where

Protect Water Protectors

Will your children drink  when the supply
of plastic bottles runs dry
and floats in a dead sea,
devolved from you, me
and the idea of private property?

Proopcast

SMITW_new_logo_libsynMy daughter Crystal Clear Waters and my friend Charlotte Taylor went to the live recording of this podcast on Friday night in Brooklyn. They gave Greg Proops a copy of my book Dreamscape, which he read from during the show. It was fun to listen to someone else read from the book!

He already knew a lot about Boedicea, (and Hypatia too for that matter, who apparently he also wrote about.) My book is still available for your holiday gift giving pleasure.
