In My Own Words:
I've done a bunch of things in life to make a living, but my writing ambition is to complete a series of novels tracking several characters through the latter half of the twentieth century.

The first, "Wake of the Raven," is available on Amazon. It's set in the post-war world of 1951, and I hope to follow it with "Tiger's Tail" sometime in 2009.

As of this October 2009, I'm working on the cover… Read more

Paycheck To Paycheck -- It's Personal (My Life, My&hellip by Carsten Aretz
5.0 out of 5 stars Honest and Useful, 28 Sep 2012
The desires and agonies of real life stories often rival the inventions of fiction, and this author's account of struggle and drug addiction proves that soundly.
The quarrels of parents, so fearful to small children, listening through the wall; the agonies of teenagers struggling to find their way and be accepted, the temptations of sex and drugs, the daily grind of earning a living in an indifferent world... this is all too familiar to many of us, and brought back to me more than one wince-making memory. Like the author, would that I could go back and re-do many things.

The honesty and sincerity with which Carsten tells the true and gripping tale, of his struggle to find… Read more
Oyster Bay  and  Other Short Stories by Jules S. Damji
The good of this collection, its heart, lies in the rich subject matter, and the author's feel for it; the vanishing world of a long established, determined and enterprising Asian community in Tanzania and other parts of East Africa.

Those who have ever gazed at films on that exotic place, land of the red-clad Maasai, the roaming elephant, the towering giraffe, may also have wondered at the names of its great cities: Dar Es Salaam, Nairobi, Zanzibar. What was it like to live there in the turbulent era when British rule ended, and the swinging world of The West in the sixties beckoned? What opportunities beckoned, what miseries tormented, what dark secrets were hidden? How did the… Read more
Hell by John R. Lindensmith

Hell the town's called, and a hellish picture Lindensmith paints of its high school. It's not long since this young author was himself incarcerated in one of these Halls of Learning, and grim places they must be, if they at all resemble his fictional, small-town school, where all the cruelty and confusion of youth comes together in a satanic dance that culminates in nihilistic slaughter.

The outer hell of high school is mirrored by the fiery pits of anger and emptiness within each of Lindensmith's characters. Shallow, pointless sex, often between people who loath each other, the confusion of recreational drugs and quick-fix psychiatric medication, the jealousies of possession and… Read more
