Canada Died? By Piso Mojado

One day in late 2012 I was reading the coins in my pocket, something I have hardly ever done, when I noticed something that was the size and color of an American nickel but which had the inscription,... More > "Canada, 1867-2008". Honestly, this was the first notice I had gotten about the death of Canada, since our American news media pays so little attention to our northern neighbor. I was shocked and depressed by the news. It was days later before I became frightened. If a nation such as Canada--reasonable, good-natured, never threatening other countries--had passed away, what chance is there for America and for civilization itself? At that time I wrote this obituary for a friend I hardly knew. And I added a plea for change. Can we discipline ourselves before America and the rest of the world share poor Canada's fate?< Less

Written in 1995, this archaic novel was distributed, unpublished, to many "public" figures, so called. Silence ensued. But so did alluding. Here, for example, is Harold Bloom in "How... More > to Read and Why" quoting as central to Faulkner's "As I Lay Dying" the passage thought by Darl, emphasis on "I" and "nothing" : "And since sleep is is-not and rain and wind are 'was,' it is not. Yet the wagon 'is,' because when the wagon is 'was', Addie Bundren will not be. And Jewel 'is,' so Addie Bundren must be. And I must be, or I could not empty myself for sleep in a strange room. And so if I am not emptied yet, I am 'is.'" I am and I am nothing, ephemerally there in Faulkner is central to "I" the novel, and so this quote, just as Cormac McCarthy is quoted from in the book by this scholar and critic, brave beyond words, to climax in this quotation from "Blood Meridian" with the quote ending on the same note, "As war becomes dishonored etc. You ain't nothing." The I or self may be nothing. I need not prove anything, right?< Less

The City That Waits To Die is a historic fiction account of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and its impact on to intertwined fictional families, the McCurrens and the Pritchards. Since the... More > California Gold Rush, they have shared a bond begun by the fellowship of their patriarchs, Finney McCurren and Lucas Pritchard. The story tells of the McCurren and Pritchard actions and impressions of their ravaged world during a twenty-four hour period centered upon the 1906 earthquake. There is fire, peril, and missing family and friends, a train depot explosion and a hurried trek to San Francisco on stolen horseback. I was hungry for authentic detail and poured over as many resources as I could find, attempting to make The City That Waits To Die richer, to make it real. In addition to residing in San Francisco for ten years and still visiting regularly, I spent two years researching the 1906 details of San Francisco.< Less

Helen and Richard Green were looking forward to having their family and friends back together. It's been a long time since they all died. And Helen was going to enjoy saying ‘I told you... More > so’ to all the doubters who’d said their idea of being frozen and revived in the future, was mad. Of course they’d get here in a different way. They were going to be retrieved from the past, at the very point they died! iSys, the descendant of a long forgotten Internet, had developed the ability to enter the timestream, and map the atomic structure of people’s brains, and replicate them in artificial bodies. It was providing immortality to all humans (who iSys deemed fit) without impacting time. People still died, so nothing changed. They just found themselves waking in a heaven we’d created for ourselves. But some of these ‘retrievees’ are being snatched by a mysterious black form, and iSys discovers the disturbing truth that links the victims together. And the consequences could mean the end of the universe itself!< Less
