only two people

at our moon viewing party

and one at a time

—Sander Zulauf < p>

In Bashō in America, 17th century haiku master Matsuo Bashō leaves his Lake Biwa “abode of illusion” to visit an “abode of illusion” on Lake George.

“In this stunning collection Sander Zulauf makes a convincing bid to become our American Bashō. Poem after brief poem struck me right between the eyes, with shocks of recognized truth.”

—X.J. Kennedy

“This cruise didn’t begin well and it will not end well”, he told Keoke, Heavy and me. His distant mystical look sent shivers up our spines.

In the belly of a ship decades old, in the heat and the humidity and the rank stench of filthy men days unwashed, the crew of the ancient USS Topa rot.

They do their duty as slaves to the U.S. Navy, the supply lifeline of the fleet that hovers off of the coast of Vietnam in 1969, engaged in a never ending war. But to their commanders, as sailors, they are nothing. And as enlisted men, they are even less.

Strangers at first, the men of the USS Topa, a ragtag group from all walks of life, find themselves an ocean away from home, struggling together not against the communists their country is fighting, but against their own officers.

Slowly but surely, under the iron fist of the Navy, prejudice, hatred and fear run rampant among the crew. And amidst the long voyage, they are left to wonder if any of them will make it back to the states at all…

By Madonna Dries Christensen

A spare, elegantly simple exploration of father-son love and father-son hate. Equally strong passions, left unbridled, one can be harmful, the other deadly.

Based on a real event, Patricide begins with a brutal homicide on the Iowa prairie in 1920. Told by several observers, the subject is handled with the respect befitting these salt of the earth people bewildered by the horrifying act of fifteen-year-old Carl Jess.

What drove this boy to patricide? What was his motivation? Did he believe he had something to gain, or was he totally deranged?

While the community wrestles with these questions, attempting to sort fact from speculation, the five men closest to the case examine their relationship with their sons.

The killer, Carl Jess, has a point of view, too.

Stirring the pot is Augusta Duvall, the first female reporter for the Des Moines Register, who publishes a sensationalized and somewhat fictional portrayal of Carl Jess. She also stirs romantic feelings in John Glover, 50 years her senior; they become the target of gossip.

Patricide will have readers contemplating their life and family relationships.

Given circumstances similar to Carl Jess’s, who among us might commit murder?

Christensen’s authentic voice carries readers beyond the opening shock of patricide into the hearts and minds of a rich cast of characters who explore the complexities of the human condition that tie, bind, and wound families. Long after closing this thought-provoking novel readers will find themselves asking: Why?
— JB Hamilton Queen: author of Dagger in the Cup, NIEBA Award; Raincrow; Imminent Reprisal; Masters of the Breed; and Sweet Gums.

When tragedy strikes, I turn to a master storyteller for comfort and illumination. Madonna is one such light-bearer. In this beautifully and compassionately told tale, unfolding from multiple perspectives—the sheriff, the newspaper reporter, the reverend, the young killer himself—Madonna portrays a community struggling to live with incomprehensible evil. Once you’ve read this story, it will be a light for your journey for the rest of your life.
— Marshall J. Cook, professor emeritus of creative writing, University of Wisconsin, Madison, and author of the Monona Quinn mystery series.

When Texas Gov. Rick Perry signed a bill in May 2009 authorizing the Brazos River Authority to sell the entire inhabited shoreline of Possum Kingdom Lake, not many people questioned it. But the odd thing is that the property in question had been sold exactly one month earlier to a good ol’ boy that had earned the nickname “the River Card.”

While the Texas legislature had been busy considering the will of the people, the Brazos River Authority had been busy selling the land. The final sale price was fifty million dollars. The estimated value of the land was one billion dollars.

Playing Possum offers a detailed analysis of the most costly political scandal perpetrated in Texas since the Sharpstown Stock-Fraud scandal. It involved the state’s most powerful politicians—including the governor, the lieutenant governor, and the attorney general—but to this day very few people know what really happened.

It also involved the leading candidates for those same offices in 2014.

This true account reveals how the taxpayers of Texas were cheated out of approximately one billion dollars worth of prime Texas real estate in a story of high-stakes real estate poker.

With the extensive amount of information available online today, it is often difficult to determine the validity of facts presented and even more challenging to put them all into perspective. In Voyage without a Harbor, author David D. Peck seeks to provide both the validity and perspective from a historical standpoint. A professor of history at the college level for more than twenty years, Peck presents an accessible narrative overview of Western civilization from the Stone Age to the end of the Cold War in the late twentieth century. Voyage without a Harbor focuses primarily on providing fundamental guidance, information, and insight on how civilization developed, but also occasionally delves into deeper factual presentations combined with some examples drawn from the humanities. Geared toward high school seniors and college freshmen, this study offers a concise look into the history of Western civilization with lists of suggested resources and reading for those seeking more in-depth discussion. “…highly accessible and eminently readable.” ––John D. Young, PhD, Flagler College. “…well-balanced…with fascinating tidbits scattered throughout.”––Ryan Patrick Crisp, PhD, BYU-Idaho.

In the summer of 1940, the German Luftwaffe was preparing to destroy London by bombing it for fifty-six consecutive days and nights.

To spare British children from witnessing the carnage and from possible death, millions of youth were evacuated from their London homes and sent away to safe locations. For many boys and girls, their lives would start over in new towns and often with unknown families. Historically, the idea of evacuating an entire generation of children, separating them from their parents, was unprecedented.

This is the story of one of those evacuee children, Jayne Jaffe, who at age nine, began witnessing the best and worst of humanity: war, love, death, separation, tears, euphoria, destruction and rebuilding.

For the first time, Jayne’s remarkable journey is told with compelling narrative by author Jon Helminiak in This Token of Freedom.

This Token of Freedom is an extraordinarily well written and heartwarming story about family courage in a time of historic global strife. It’s important reminder of the upheavals wrought by WWII on British parents and their children.” The British Literary Society
