International Authors News

Horace Jeffery Hodges' novella The Bottomless Bottle of Beer is now available on Kindle.  Professor Hodges' novella was originally published in the International Authors anthology Emanations: Second Sight, and features illustrations by artist and philosopher Terrance Lindall. These illustrations (and many more) are in the new Kindle edition. A full announcement has been posted in Professor Hodges' blog, Gypsy Scholarship.

Italian artist, translator, critic, and poet Dario Rivarossa has been working steadily on his translation of Torquato Tasso's poems La Gerusalemme liberata (Jerusalem Delivered) and Gerusalemme Conquistata (Jerusalem Conquered).  Sections of the translation will appear soon in Emanations: Third Eye. This remarkable effort includes preparing illustrations rendered in a contemporary style that is influenced by Japanese anime. As he works on Tasso's poems, Mr. Rivarossa is documenting his engagement with the creative process in his blog Tassonomia.  Mr. Rivarossa is the author (and illustrator) of the book-length critical study Dante Was a Fantasy Writer.

Many thanks, Carter! Always too kind of you. Just a note: the text being translated and commented on in Tassonomia is not (only) "Gerusalemme Liberata" but Tasso's TRUE masterpiece, "Gerusalemme Conquistata" (Jerusalem Conquered). Odd as it may seem, the two poems have just few things in common, though dealing with the same subject.

Thanks, Dario. I have edited the post to reflect this correction.
