    response to David DeVroey by Danny Beatty: Sir, you say it appears to be a great book of interesting poetry. Then you say it has too many pages, that the layout is not good and that the book is full of failures. Yes, it has a lot of pages, but you only viewed two pages and, again, found the poetry excellent. The supposed "failures" are what is called formatting. Perhaps you need to reset the parameters on your printer. You need to make sure that the formatting for the printer is the same as the book, but you should know that, shouldn't you. The purpose of the book is to instill in the modern poet a need to stop publishing small and tepid books, hence the many pages. Much of the poetry is hypermodern and you may never have seen it before but that is your problem and not mine. I seek to invent a new instrument. You may continue playing the old one if you want to. Thank you for visiting.

    Danny Beatty's poetry is nurtured in the womb of the Earth. It springs into the eye of the reader with metaphoric mushrooms, it comforts the trembling fern, it has no patience for the dark debris of humanity, the dark debris that causes the nocturnal owl to weep. So listen to the wooden flute of his voice, it is original and will not be tamed by concrete lilypads or the bloodless gnarled finger of academia. Marc Creamore, author of Bohemian Highway

    Danny Beatty is not just another “flavor of the day” poet, but a visionary, a reactionary, revolutionary weaver of words, a prestidigater, a painter of words, ideas, emotions, and vistas of language. As the poetic status-quo devolves into a group of sycophants of the “Dick and Jane” school of prosy, empty verse, ignoring the human condition with all its nuance, written by drones who are better at the academic politics of poetry than the written word itself, Danny stands out as a brave and talented wordsmith. When I read him, I think of groundbreaking poets like Coleridge, Whitman, Ginsberg; poets that refused to be confined to a mold. It should be no surprise that Mr. Beatty did not write a small polite volume, but a vast rollicking adventure of a book. He ventures where other writers fear to tread, to claim poetic high ground that the academics have deserted. In “Biking The Wings Of Giant Birds” Mr. Beatty will expose you to the outlands of human thought, to the very spark that... More > ignites curiosity and, indeed, wonder. In the words of Hunter S. Thompson, “Buy the ticket, take the ride”. You, dear reader, are in for a rare treat. Rob Ganson< Less

    Completing a book, it’s a little like having a baby. There’s a feeling of relief and satisfaction when you get to the end and to bring home your new almost-parents experience. So, take care of your child - book of poetry and enjoy despite some people do not see the results you want, because the action is tied to who we are as people, to our very core.

    From the first glance (I read it only from the preview) it looks like a great book of interesting poetry. Still, in my opinion it has too many pages. It's layout is not good. It is full of all kind of failures. Before the poetry author missed to add all things essential for the normal, good looking, quality book. If he want to sell it, it's layout urgently need to be redesigned. I gave up to spent money for this book.
