Come visit the Goth scene in this collection of short stories.
See how obsessions can lead to madness or even death; meet creatures from the other side on the waterfront of New Orleans or in an abandoned graveyard of dolls. Visit the clubs, studios, and band rooms of Goths as you follow a cast of characters, who despite tragic pasts still contain an innocence, which can be stolen or corrupted.
“...I’ve decided it was Gothic Godiva. I couldn’t stop myself from eating the whole box! I wanted to keep turning the pages.” — Blaire Johnson, author of Alice’s Adventures in Davey Jones’ Locker
Investigates the interconnections between quantum physics, philosophy, metaphysics, transcendence, the arts, purpose and the actualization of the authentic self. As a travelogue among incompatible tangents in a state of fluctuating paradox, Eye on the Universe exposes the miracle in everyday life, the realm layered behind what we perceive as “reality.” Both hidden and viewed in our inner and outer universes, that realm summons each individual, reminding them to forget their conditioning as they awaken to remember their true core.

Have you ever wondered what was real? Planetary Tensions - a heraldic call to the chymical wedding of physics and the innate spiritual seeking of collective humanity. A call to confront the inner self and awaken to the pivotal responsibility of creation in our lives, the planet and the universe. These poems examine how string theory, quantum physics, Jungian thought, ancient mysticism, alchemy and even chaotic activity in the universe echo the development of human conciseness and it’s amazing capabilities. We are only now remembering the power of our true natures.
The conceptual awareness of the poems represented here is stimulated from metaphysical observations, attempting to ascertain life’s realities, and find an existential truth within environmental mirages, hand-fed truths from those that are not qualified to assert such claims. The idea of feeling through these mirages is solely my own rendition of realities that encompass societal positing, vis-à-vis the speaking through specific vernacular, as well as physical actions delineating reality from the au courant movements that society makes without conscience.
The bard of Poznan takes the reader on a street tour of Europe, jazz, relationships, life, death, from the bars to the gutter. With his pinpoint imagery and apt observations on the human condition, A.J. snaps from pathos to snarl, charging the reader to live and think. Kaufmann is rapidly becoming one of the most soughtafter poets as his chapbooks are published all over the world. Beat, surreal, hard to pinpoint, he carves his own place in contemporary poetry. A.J. is prolific, awakening the minds of his readers, leaving sparks and cinders, and a trail of poetry addicts as readers clamor for more of his cut up viewpoints.
A series of poems on the synchronicities and dichotomies of nature, society, quantum physics and culture.

In New Orleans following Katrina all bets are of; all masks dissolved. "Don't forget the sham in shaman," Jacob Laguerre lies to his new apprentice, Alex Hampton. When Alex, a twenty-eight year-old anthropology professor goes on field-study to post-Katrina New Orleans, he enters a chaotic and altered landscape where he's psychologically, physically and spiritually challenged by the sarcastic mentoring of the mulatto, Laguerre, a current day voudou shaman. Both Laquerre's and Alex's psyches struggle through stages of transition and rebirth as their lives are enmeshed with a group of quirky fringe-dwellers, as colorful and eccentric as the New Orleans itself. They all follow a taut path between madness and redemption.
(2007 Poetry/art, 44 pages.)
A collection of poems addressing the role of the self, diminished by the constraints of society. Drawing upon Greek philosophers such as Heraclitus and Plato, to the discordians and Kierkegaard, John Fowles with his Aristos, quantum physics and string theory, Gray challenges us to confront our conditioning and assumptions, leaving a blank canvas or page upon which we must write out own life scripts.
“A.D. Hitchin’s work is visionary, highly original and striking. The stunning pieces with their complex thoughts immediately pierce through the readers, connecting them to and speaking vividly to their unconscious parts of psyches, breaking through the barriers and bringing the striking images & concepts to life within their consciousness. The work is pulsating, charged, thought provoking and unified by the theme of confronting their dualities and primal matrixes, seeking their resolution in - as the title suggests - Holy Hermaphrodite. The styles are varied, brilliantly crafted, show his uniqueness and distinctive voice and his fantastic range.
A consummate master of the metaphor, Wink has the ability to lead you through seaside towns and beaches and, in between seemingly innocent words, to enlighten you to the surreal nature of the human condition. Tongue firmly entrenched in his cheek, he whispers about the death of Goblins while real human-beings slip unnoticed beneath the waves and eulogies on a panic-stricken moth and the suspect seriousness of grieving kisses.

Sometimes mystical at others in your face, this collection of poem taps both the personal and universal in their blending of worlds. As a long-time fringe-dweller and sub-culture junkie, Gray portrays the complexities of people and worlds far from the mainstream and a student of Jung and Thomas Moore equally enthralled with the classic poets as well as Jim Morrison and Keith Flynn A collection of poetry related to the music scene, the goth world, alchemy, psychology, art and the frailties of human nature.
5/28/2010. Storms at the Edge by Gail Gray. The poetry of Gail Gray can best be described as contemporary cauterized with a mystic edge that lucidly delivers.” Michael Aaron Casares Virgogray Press, Austin TX.
