Book Review “In the Calyx”, Libre Paley 

“I want her to melt into me, like butter on toast. I want to absorb her and walk around for the rest of my days with her encased in my skin.” Sara Gruen 1. From Stefan (aka all male readers):  Wow, this story had me glued to my wife like never before! Wonderfully written storyline and very detailed characters! All sex scenes kept me totally engaged until the very last word… I loved this book so...

The taste of fear

Inspired by “The Coffin Path”, Katherine Clements I decided to skip ‘review’ for this book, because it is simply ‘not my cup of tea’ (maybe toooo many lambs and I can’t relate to the heroes), but very well written. This is my ‘reflection’ on the book. Chapter 1 No matter How many times I tell myself It was nothing Just fear… No matter How empty the road I search But don’t dare To look. Deep down...

Book Review “Small Town Kid” (memoir/poetry), Frank Prem

“The past beats inside me like a second heart.” John Banville From the dark, cold and tangled branches emerges a butterfly… called Ray. Where he’d go with a new set of wings? Haha To the book of inspiration, memories, radiating energy, harmony, joy of childhood, humour, change, ache and truth – “Small Town Kid” by Frank Prem. The book overflows with warm descriptions of mcalpine’s cherries, the laws of football, the dangerous mystery of night, the ideal...

Book Review “The Contract: between heaven and earth,” John W. Howell, Gwen M. Plano

“Like flowers we grow, bloom, and whither – each day and each life. But although we blossom more grandiose in each new life, all our lives are perfect in their own way.” Stefan Emunds Unpredictable Mysterious Intriguing On the surface it looks like the usual thriller, but if you look deeper inside, you’ll find a kick-ass paranormal fantasy. Just imagine how cool it would be to witness real incarnation, at the core of God’s house, while...

Book Review “Colder: A Collection of Poetry & Prose”, River Dixon

Winter. Somewhere in North Dakota. River: Do you know what I’d ask Santa if I’d ever met him? Dixon: Hot babe? River: I’d say “I want COLDER”… Dixon: Are you mad, it is already -16,6 F! Why do some young kids dislike poetry? Why do so many people unsatisfied with modern poetry? When Marianne Moore wrote a poem titled “Poetry,” she began it with the words: “I, too, dislike it.” Making a poem was never quite...

Book Review “The King of FU”, Benjamin Davis (illustration Nikita Klimov)

“Life is like a colonoscopy,” claims the author of the book ‘The King of FU’. What happens during colonoscopy, and how to prepare for the sacred action, are the main themes of this magical poem about the Kingdom in which we all live. It seems that Benjamin knows exactly what he is talking about. And Ray loves that. The honesty The openness The sincerity Two testicles + two hands + two horns = the imitation of birth....

Book Review “The Donkey King and Other Stories”, Christopher Lindsay

“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.” Neil Gaiman I love fairytales. And I still read them and probably, just like Audrey Hepburn, I like them best of all. Not because they are so fascinating and wizardly wonderful, but because they are teaching us: that good and evil is not ‘abstract concepts’ no magic can save you if you...
