Choices. We all make choices. Morgan discovered a bloodied bridge after making a choice to go there on a pre-dawn daily run. Blood dripping from a bridge over a rushing river told a story. Morgan... More > thought the odd combination made for a unique photo opportunity as well as a puzzling mystery. Morgan had tagged along on his wife’s business trip out of town. Lucy, his wife, had discouraged Morgan from running down the unknown path in the strange town before the light of day. She had, however, encouraged him to follow a path of his passions and begin a career as a freelance photographer. Morgan had recently found himself between jobs, and only the night before he had confided to his wife his dream of photographing nature. The Universe answered his desire the next day with an incredible scene to capture, but the mystery of the spilled blood threatened to alter his life in ways not necessarily related to publishing pictures into coffee table books.< Less

Lineland, Mortality and Mercy on the Internet's Pynchon-L@Waste Org Discussion List By Jules Siegel
eBook (PDF): $5.00
(1 Ratings)
Imagine Stuart Gilbert, Gertrude Stein, Hugh Kenner, Edmund Wilson, and a host of lesser lights chatting about the Aeolus chapter of Joyce's Ulysses on the Internet. Siegel attended Cornell with... More > Thomas Pynchon; before he moved to Mexico in the early '70s, he was a successful freelance writer, authoring four books and many magazine articles; most relevantly, a 1977 Playboy article titled "Who Is Thomas Pynchon . . . and Why Did He Take Off with My Wife?" [included in full] Siegel outlines his own history and the Internet's history (for unconnected readers), then explains his discovery that, on the Net, "I am a sub-set of the Thomas Pynchon industry," and gathers dozens of conversations and controversies within that "industry" in which he--and, ultimately, the Siegel ex-wife with whom Pynchon "took off"--participated. So Lineland at once adds facts and commentary to the sparse information about the reclusive Pynchon and demonstrates "virtual community" in action. --Mary Carroll, Booklist< Less

This is a rare collection of Song lyrics, Poems and Short Stories by Tony Stewart. Note from author: I began writing when I was about fourteen years of age, and have never really stopped. Many of... More > these pieces have been written mainly as a freelance writer. These are writings from the heart, mind, and soul of life's experiences. Today, I’m really lucky to be alive. As a naive teenager, I nearly overdosed on drugs at the California Jam concert in 1974 that accommodated over 300,000 people. Many of my closest friends from the L.A. days were not so lucky and have died prematurely from unnatural causes. In 1976, I was nearly killed by serial killer Patrick Wayne Kearney, also known as the Trash Bag Murderer. He killed an estimated 32 to 43 people. In 1978, I was shot “Point blank” in the stomach with a .22 caliber derringer, but survived to write this book. Good or bad, politically correct or not; it is all here.< Less
