A vivid work based on a lifetime of learning about a remote mining area east of the Colorado River, Pioneer Women, Miners and Thieves is a collection of portraits of enterprising people whose stories... More > have never been told. In the late 1800s, prospectors and pioneers poured into this part of the Arizona Territory. When the ore was gone, the mining camps faded into ghost towns. All that remained was the exquisite desert and a handful of intractable people determined to live audacious lives in splendid isolation. Long before HBO’s Deadwood became America’s most popular mining camp, Cactus Kelli wrote about mining towns Harrisburg and Harqua Hala. With personal experience as her guide, she writes of people she knew or heard tales about while she was growing up in the McMullen Valley. Ms. Kelly has informed her work with extensive research. A poet at heart, she writes with an awareness that, sculpting memories is a natural phenomenon used to soften the realities that can sear our souls.< Less

More > Victor through a real-life science fiction adventure, unrequited love, unwholesome ruminations on death, a cross-country trek as a fugitive from the rich & powerful, the search for and discovery of a literary hero/ghost, and strange encounters with the insect kingdom. Elizabeth Ruiz, author of the acclaimed play, "Death By Survival" writes, "We are all misfits-but not all misfits are the same. Some, like Victor in Sanity's Bane, help us to fall in love with life despite the hardships. Sanity's Bane is both highbrow and down-to-earth, dark yet full of hope. It paints poetic pictures, waxes philosophical, and tells a story which is both moving and hilarious. 'Sanity's Bane' is a reminder that the love we feel is ours forever."< Less

Lucid Moments Fischerhude 2003 - 2013 By Gerhard Raase & Floy Dy Ra
eBook (PDF): $4.80

"Lucid Moments" are these very short blink of an eye moments which become aware only for an "en plein air" painter. The perfect picture touches the observer, it allows his mind... More > to wander to a different world for the briefest of moments. For a painter they are fixed immediately on canvas or taken by quick sketch back home to do the work, if the weather don´t allow to paint outside. Like the inspiration of a poem comes & goes these moments are very rare. For example: only a few see these moments in nature like the "water-ghost" image appearing only one day a year if the morning in February has no clouds or rising moon breaking through the clouds when the painter is just ready to finish the clouds of a sunset. All paintings are done within the last 10 years in "Fischerhude", near Bremen, Germany. Gerhard Raase lives for over 6 years besides the "Old Watermill of Fischerhude" directly at the small river "Wümme" 48 paintings & 1st biography of the autodidact artist and short story included.< Less
