Dan Baldwin Author- HERESY

HERESY

by Dan Baldwin

Dan Baldwin’s new book HERESY is available from Kindle Books as a download and as a paperback from CreatSpace.

Dr. Ashley “Ash” Hayes is driver to prove that America was explored by Europeans well before Columbus… a quest her superiors at a north west Louisiana college consider academic heresy. Her quest is interrupted by the disappearance of a friend who has headed into the far hills and deep swamps in search of ancient Native American treasure. She drops everything to help find her friend and is aided by the missing man’s brother, a tall and handsome transplanted Apache. The two find the brother, the killer and someone far more deadly. They also find the treasure and encounter a profound mystery. But will Ash survive the ordeal to tell the story.

Dan also had his photo in THE WRITER magazine along with a blurb on where he reads it.

Geronimo Author- FIRE AND FLAMES A HISTORY OF THE GERMAN AUTONOMIST MOVEMENT

Geronimo Author- FIRE AND FLAMES A HISTORY OF THE GERMAN AUTONOMIST MOVEMENT

Geronomo . Introduction by George Katsiaficas .    Afterword by Gabriel Kuhn

FIRE AND FLAMS was the first comprehensive study of the German autonomous movement ever published. Released in 1990, it reached its fifth edition by 1997, with the legendary Germn konkret journal concluding that “the movement had produced its own classic.” The author, writing under the pseudonym of Geronimo, has been an autonomous activist since the movement burst onto the scene in 1980-1981. In this book, he traces its origins in the Italian Autonomia project and the German social movements of the 1970’s, before describing the battles for squats, “free spaces,” and alternative forms of living that defined the first decade of the autonomous movement. Tactics of the “Autonome” were militant, including the construction of barricades or throwing Molotov cocktails at the police. Because of their outfit (heavy black clothing, ski masks, helmets), the Autonome were dubbed the “Black Bloc” by the German media, and the tactics have been successfully adopted and employed at anti-capitalist protest worldwide. FIRE AND FLAMES is no detached academic study, but a passionate, hands-on, and engaging account of the beginning of one Europe’s most intriquing protest movements of the last thirty years. An introduction by George Katsiaficas, author of THE SUBVERSION OF POLITICS and an afterword by Gabriel Kuhn, a long-time autonomous activist and author, add historical context and an update on the current state of the Autonomen.

Eleanor Lerman Poet- STRANGE LIFE

STRANGE LIFE
A new collection of poetry from Eleanor Lerman
Mysterious, metaphysical and definitely not mainstream

The arc of Lerman’s work can be traced from the “double-X” rating that The New York Times suggested for her 1974 National Book Award-nominated debut collection of poetry (for its early emphasis on sex, drugs and rock and roll) to meditations on infinity that now speak to an audience spanning the generations. In STRANGE LIFE, Lerman’s sixth volume of poems, she imagines surfing as a metaphor describing persistence in the face of relentlessly passing time and the company of dogs as an ancestral promise of faith in the strength of the human heart. In Lerman’s work, the mystery of what waits beyond the horizon is always present and we cannot help but move towards it, looking for that place where light and darkness are forever intertwined. “It’s a strange life,” Lerman writes, “but wait: it’s getting stranger still.”

STRANGE LIFE can be ordered now from Mayapple Press at a pre-publication discount.

Simon Morden Author- EQUATIONS OF LIFE

EQUATIONS OF LIFE

by Simon Morden

Galaxy Book Review

So my man Ozzie- good friend and regular Mysterious Galaxy customer … got me started on Simon Morden’s EQUATIONS OF LIFE.  It’s a thriller, set in a future London where Russian, Japanese, and local gangs duke it out and the police are powerless bystanders.  Life sucks, at least in the marginal areas, so, yes, this is a dystopia, but the people in the novel make up for this by their verve and their general bigheartedness.  The main guy is Petrovicvh, genius Russian physicist with a shady past.  The main girl is Sister Madeleine, a nun with a very big gun, who ditches her habit to help Petrovicyh rescue the other main girl, Sonya, the damsel in distress and daughter of the local Japanese crime lord.  Throw in a rogue Al and the scientific discovery of all time, and you’ve got a fast-pace, quick-witted, culturally savvy sf thriller of the highest caliber.  Enthusiastically recommended!- DJ
