More > real and unreal and relationships and family.It was an attempt to make sense of a life cut short by illness and mainly asks the question over and over again:"What is the point of life,is it worth living?"I have an answer to that question now,yes it is worth living because the alternative, a long drawn out slow death is not an option I wish to take.I have considered it but have decided "To choose life"-Eternal life as a Christian.< Less

This is Am Volume 4.It hardly mentions Am,but he haunts the tale.This is a horror story.Am is an alter ego of mine.And this volume is still about him although in this volume it is in the form of a... More > story about an imaginary wife of mine-Sarah, and her dysfunctional family,with husband John and children Mary and Paul.The book talks a lot about religion- AM speaks. He is, as described in other volumes through the monsters Jale, Beester and Crowndser a complete selfish monster!This is a book that lives a nightmare and exudes false religion.Maybe it is supernatural horror. St Paul's letter to the Romans Ch 4 v 18-25. Maybe this monster story will fulfill a dream I had many years ago of becoming a recognised artist.Abraham only believed and despite the apparent impossibity of the prophesy,his faith was "considered as justifying him" Amen< Less
Am By Simon Plant
Paperback: $8.55
Prints in 3-5 business days
Only upon publication do I realise this book's genre:Horror!The first part of this book Am is only a fragment of a book I wrote largely in the eighties about my search for my mind after a serious... More > mental breakdown after leaving Oxford University in 1976,my subsequent conversion to Christianity and the development of a personal relationship with Jesus.It also describes some of the relationships in my life,my mother,my father,my ex wife and my brothers and sisters,plus a few friends,and associates.Their names are disguised!It is written in broken language to evoke my mentality at the time.Please forgive some of the errors in text,because i haven't had the time or patience(!)to work any more on it because it belongs in the past.However some of the 'errors' are deliberate,I was thinking very much of James Joyce's style in Ulysses.The second half,Regime in the Head,written before AM,is about my life in the mental health system and the Church of England,and is largely a diary.< Less

Am Volume 5 By Simon Plant
Paperback: $12.16
Prints in 3-5 business days
This AM Volume 5 is largely diary.However the person that is speaking, although I wrote the words-that person is AM,not me,as I am now!The person on the cover is me, Simon Plant,I am not AM!Who is... More > AM?Its not me,but "I" wrote the words.The mystery deepens.These words were written in the 80's as a way of coping with mental illness.The sentiments expressed in these lines I don't really identify with anymore because,after I became a Catholic in 1986, AM was laid to rest i.e.I did no more work on the novel.The manuscript was forgotten by me for 20 years,to be quite frank I thought it was probably nonsense anyway.However I resolved to publish it as a duty to myself,thinking why do all that work and then leave it in a draw?And also these words may help someone.(I hope so)The words when printed do not have my voice anymore they are like the word,as expressed in the Bible,that does not come down from heaven without doing the will of the Father.< Less
