It breaks new ground by allowing the reader to engage with a dozen poems in alternative versions; in many other cases it provides significant variants, so that Yeats's struggle to revise his poetry can be experienced with unusual immediacy.

This innovative sci-fi novel explores the potential impact of alien infection on humankind as they traverse the stars and find themselves stranded on new and strange planets. Amid the Crowd of Stars is a grand scale science fiction novel examining the ethical implications of interstellar travel, a topic rarely addressed in science fiction novels. What responsibilities do we have to isolate ourselves from the bacteria, viruses, and other life of another world, and to prevent any of that alien biome from being brought back to Earth? What happens when a group of humans are stranded for centuries on another world with no choice but to expose themselves to that world? After such long exposure, are they still Homo sapiens or have they become another species entirely? These questions are at the heart of this intriguing novel, explored through the complicated lives and the viewpoints of the people who have come to rescue the stranded colony, the members of that colony, and the sentient alien life that dwells on the planet. Difficult life and death choices will be made by all involved.

A fictional love story set during and after the shocking reality of 9/11, this narrative parallels the plight of America as the characters search for solutions to a senseless and ill-conceived war during which a couple struggles to work through their own personal conflicts. A romance set against one of the greatest tragedies in U.S. history, Peace Amidst Conflict beautifully demonstrates how understanding the opposition is an essential step toward healing rifts between individuals as well as nations. Peace Amidst Conflict opens with the tragic scene of two airplanes flying into the World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001. Through two twin brothers, one the attorney general of California and the other a staff member in the office of the U.S. secretary of state in Washington, the narrative weaves together the ill-preparedness of the intelligence agencies before the attack on the World Trade Center; the determination of the Bush administration to rearrange the map of the Middle East; the manipulation of the CIA who were ordered to find a reason to go into Iraq; the op-ed article released by Ambassador Joseph Wilson attacking President Bush for using the infamous Niger Report as a justification; the retaliation of the administration by leaking the identity of Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame, as a CIA agent; and the inhumane treatment of the detainees in Abu Ghraib. Tying together these separate but related issues in a compelling narrative that offers a general understanding of what happened behind-the-scenes in the lead-up to the Iraqi war, the story is both compelling and informative. Ultimately, through interviews with international experts, the brothers create a new diplomatic foreign policy for the next presidential administration that will open the way to more peaceful solutions to world relations.
