Luther's Hammer By Jack Williamson

Prints in 3-5 business days
In the sixteenth century, one seemingly innocuous act of posting a notice on a community bulletin board with an old rusty hammer resulted in the shattering of the medieval Christian Church. It... More > wasn’t just a split into two parts like splitting a chunk of firewood with the swing of an ax. But it was the shattering of an institution that dominated Western Culture into hundreds, if not thousands, of pieces. Some of those pieces became well respected and established Protestant Christian denominations while others became off-beat and eerie cults and sects. This event is known as the Protestant Reformation, and it is a story that has all the elements of an epic tale handed down from sages and told in the rhyming songs of minstrels. It has bravery, heroes, villains, successes, failures, adventure, drama, romance, wars, betrayal, loyalty, conviction, hypocrisy, and even comedy. This book will tell you what happened, but more importantly, the reason it happened.< Less
The Tale of Charlemagne and Ralph the Collier By Jeff Sypeck

Charbonnier est maître chez soi: "The collier is master in his own house." This French saying finds its most literal expression in The Tale of Charlemagne and Ralph the Collier, a... More > 15th-century Middle Scots romance about the adventures that ensue when King Charlemagne, separated from his entourage by a blizzard, seeks refuge in the home of a proud and irascible collier. Combining folktale motifs with burlesque humor and elements of chansons and chivalric romances, The Tale of Charlemagne and Ralph the Collier is a lively but little-read story of medieval courtesy, hospitality, and knighthood. This translation, the first into modern English, emulates the 75 thirteen-line rhyming, alliterative stanzas of the original. Light annotations, a brief introduction, and a bibliography help introduce modern readers to this strange and entertaining romance that W.R.J. Barron dubbed "technically and creatively the best of the English texts on the Matter of France."< Less

More > poems I have composed since writing those first six chapbooks. Most of the poems are written in my typical “story telling”, Quatrain form of poetry.

Of great importance to me, are the poems written as tributes to some special people in my life.< Less
