A World In Edgewise: Thirteen Sidereal Journeys

If you prefer deeply realized, often troubled, but always interesting human characters to shiny spaceships and aliens with laser guns, this is the book for you." - Janet Erinda, On-line Book Review __________ "The stories in Jack Preston King's "A World In Edgewise" alternately disturb me, haunt me, make me think, and send sinfully titillating tingles of delight running up and down my spine, often delivering all of these sensations at once..." -- Vincent Casspriano, Jr., author of The Simplest Path to Personal and Planetary Transformation: FREE YOUR MIND< Less

"Good question, Jack. Say a person starts out a Methodist, and decides later to become a Presbyterian or a Baptist. That's okay, because we're all brothers in Christ..." He scanned the crowd of cowering middle school faces as if measuring our comprehension and blind acceptance of his statements. To my renewed horror, I felt my mouth opening again, heard words again splashing out like flat rocks breaking still water. "But like, okay, what if someone, as a grown-up maybe, wanted to become something like, say, a Buddhist ...?"< Less

Warriors, Peacemakers and the Embarrassing Question of Love: A Peacenik's Memoir of the 1991 Gulf War
I didn't have any other example by which to explain my belief that peace was not attained by stopping war, but by learning to love and value our fellow human beings. The 1960s dropout... More > Counter-culture was the only example I knew of a mass scale, American attempt to create communities of peace and love in the midst of war.Of this I was certain: To meet the violent hysteria of war with an equally hysterical peace movement could only stir the pot, could only create an irreconcilable Us-Them situation. As with the war, there would have to be winners and losers. It would be a political, ideological struggle that could only breed greater violence. But to meet a hysterical world with love, with an open heart and a willingness to understand and include, might eventually bring a lasting peace, an Us-Us situation in which everybody won.
And to be so idealistic, so Utopian, was embarrassing...< Less
Steal This Hero: An Abbie Hoffman Love Song In Two Verses, One Chorus and a Coda

Burning cheeks."I can't believe you," she said. "You sound like a Communist. You sound like that Abbie Hoffman."Really?, I thought. Like Abbie Hoffman? The guy too dangerous to read? I remind you of him? I had to know more about this Abbie Hoffman. By comparing me to Abbie, Mom had meant to insult me, to label me a full-fledged traitorous anarcho-Communist freak. For me, though, with no real information beyond the memory of the Steal This Book incident years before, what she'd done was hand me the keys to full membership in the Great Subversive WE. If I was to accept that membership, I reasoned, I'd better find out exactly who WE are... I stole the book…< Less
The Weight That Isn't There: Anxiety and Finding the Courage to Be

More > pending deadlines, the unmet expectations of others... The weight that isn't there makes everything light by comparison. The little joys in life stay small or vanish altogether in its shadow. The weight that isn't there outweighs them all.And one anxiety can flatten a whole world. Like a blackhole in space, it draws all light into itself. It makes the darkness darker, the blackness blacker, so black it can't be seen, but can be detected only by its gravitational pull on everything around it, by the gradual disappearance, one by one, of the shining stars and planets it consumes.But Michael also showed me, that night, anxiety's antidote -- the courage to be...< Less
