John R. Gentile Author- SIREN’S SONG BOOK II OF THE SOFAR TRILOGY

SIREN’S SONG BOOK II OF THE SOFAR TRILOGY

by John R. Gentile

The cast of BLUE PLANETS and OFFWORLDER are reunited in SIREN’S SONG,the thrilling last book of the SOFAR Trilogy. Cooper Ridley returns to earth with a warning: Trochinilds are coming…and they’re hungry. Along with Azmoth-zin, Marra-jul and the Displaced Allen Workforce, Ridley must convince the nations of Earth to unite against the Swarm. Not to be denied again, Richard Jenks and the Phoenix Project are determined to obtain the alien technology they failed to acquire two years ago in the crater. Old friends Dutch, Darcy and Teresa join forces on the ocean floor in a desperate attempt to find a weakness in the alien physiology. As hope fades for Earth, Ridley and his group place all bets on a strange phenomenon in the SOFAR channel.

Trinity Review- Literary Magazine Reveals Creative Side of the Trinity University Community

Trinity Review

Literary Magazine Reveals Creative Side of the Trinity Community

A creative outlet for the Trinity community, the Trinity Review is a compilation of short stories, poems, photography, and visual art. It comes out the English department. Andrew Porter, associate professor of creative writing and adviser to the magazine, noted that its content and quality has improved in the seven years he has been at Trinity. The editors are Ashley Gabbert, senior English major with creative writing and music minors, and Layla Benitez-James, senior English major with minors in creative writing and Spanish. “This year, the feeling is more a marriage of beauty and the macabre, which I found awesome,” said Gabbert. While there is never a specific theme for the magazine, Gabbert said that when selecting submissions she and the committee tried to determine how they best complemented each other.

There were a total of 204 submissions this year, an increase of 21 submissions. Gabbert said she expects the number of submissions to continue to increase in future years due to rising interest and wider exposure of the magazine.
