Emanations: Second Sight is now Available

The attempt itself reveals both the machinery and the resolve. Rising against the gravitational seductions of former disbelief, the unclosing eye is disabused of shadowy fear and caging illusion. In these pages of poetry, fiction, essays and art, spheres of an original geometry draw together and at long last illuminate that elusively crystalizing plane of second sight, angelic knowledge, and bright eternity. Here, should fortune favor our bold attempt, we might grasp the fires of joy, forge them into thunderbolts, and launch them high to ignite the stars of our most exalted and passionate emanations.

The second anthology to be released by International Authors, Emanations: Second Sight showcases the work of thirty writers from around the world. With illustrations by Bienvenido Bañez, Jr., Troy C. Frantz, Terrance Lindall, Kai Robb, and Dario Rivarossa.

New Illustrations for Hodges' Curious Tale

Here are studies for two new oil paintings that Terrance Lindall is preparing for Horace Jeffery Hodges' novella, The Bottomless Bottle of Beer.  These are not among the illustrations that will accompany the novella as it appears in Emanations: Second Sight, due out in a few days. Rather, these will be included in a profusely-illustrated edition of the novella Jeffery and Terrance are currently preparing, and which is to be released later in the year. With a bit of luck, these paintings will be on display in an Emanations art exhibit at the Williamsburg Art and Historical Center next fall in New York City. Naturally, I am happy that the International Authors publishing consortium has been the catalyst for this collaboration.
