Sean Gets Lost in the Jungle

By: Sean Butler

A few words from Sean’s Grandma, Debbie Caterson: “I began to tell Sean stories at bedtime. He so enjoyed them, he wanted me to tell them over and over again. Since I made them up, I did not always get them right each time, and he would correct me. “Wait Grandma, ” then he would correct me because he has memorized the stories from when I first told them! An amazing child to say the least. Then he decided that he had an “imagination” and started to tell his own stories. “Sean Gets Lost in the Jungle” is the first one.”

Setting them Free

by Roger Simpson

This book is about Respect for education and therefore respect for the only reason we have classrooms, the students.

My purpose is for you read and think about this series of vignettes because they have a direct but subtle relationship to why we are destroying the last of our planetary resources out of greed and ignorance and  by continuing to send our youth off to die in battle, giving these actions the delusional names, “profit and patriotism.”

The vignettes help expose these illusions and others, because they reveal in true story form how respecting our young and hearing their voices opens the way for them to become thoughtful  student-citizens ready to take on the world of our reality, not our long standing and destructive illusions.

In the tradition of Plato, education means to “lead out,” to open young thoughtful minds from so much of the ignorance we see in history and thus, to “set them free.”

Skinning Rope

By Roger Simpson

These stories about San Francisco in the 60’s speak of that memorable time when the voices of hope and possibilities competed with the sinister drumbeat of the Vietnam War.

The characters struggle, succeed and sometimes fail, but in the end they courageously follow their choices. We see young men who stoically face the inevitability of the draft as well as those senior “pioneers” who endure daily lives of quiet resignation. Each story begins with a new opening; each story ends too soon.

Take your time. The essence of these stories comes to us slowly. The sensual side of this charismatic city seduces with scents, sounds, flavors and panoramic vistas. Step on to that iconic cable car that tenaciously follows the arterial network of its roadways.

Remember, “it’s all about the ride.”

Strings

By Roger Simpson

When do you know that something has been the right deed, but for the wrong reason?  The novel Strings answers that question. It leads from police harassment of a working class San Francisco neighborhood to a distant, mysterious city beneath the Sahara desert.

It connects the strings between many unique characters: a powerful San Francisco politician, an ex-cop-turned-reporter and his ex-partner (a police lieutenant and Master of Zahu, the most ancient of the martial arts), and Esse, a man who comes from his desert city where advanced experimentation has evolved a science and technology far beyond the West to supposedly create a plan for world peace.

The reporter and detective are both disillusioned with day-to-day life, but their investigation of the harassment problem suddenly opens a direct line to Esse’s city.

His “right deed” for world peace may be for the wrong reason which might evolve in an attack against the West, city by city. They join with a brilliant renegade scientist and Esse’s only beloved daughter in a race against time to unravel the strings of power.

How they get there and what they must do brings the novel into the hands of a terrorist who sees peace as the end of the West.

The Thing Is…

by Patsy Garlan

An anxious writer braves the verdict of an austere IRS auditor. A corpse reveals our common humanity. A lonely old lady shares her bittersweet last hours. Fall leaves fall, dogs bound, cats stroll through these lively selections from Patsy Garlan’s 60-year writing career.

In pithy poems, evocative stories, and telling essays, Garlan’s light touch draws the reader of The Thing Is into the world all human beings share and together create.

Love, loss, birth, death and the hereafter, are among her wide-ranging themes. She writes of coming to terms with the daunting computer, of succumbing to the charms of the ever-present cellphone, of reveling in the joys and challenges of the natural world. And on every page of The Thing Is, what shines through is the celebration of life.

From Reviews of the Author’s Novel Sea Change:
“Patsy Garlan’s flowing literary style hooks us readers immediately.”

“I’ve just finished reading Sea Change and I think it is spectacular.“

“The dialogue is funny and clever and very revealing of the characters.”

“All in all a wonderful story.”
