Review of "The End of the World" in Guru Magazine, Friday supplement of the Bangkok Post

Dear Friends! "The End of the World" is now published through Sansar Media.Here is a great review of "The End of the World" by Guru Magazine, the Friday supplement of the Bangkok Post.

"The Best Sand Painting of the Century" is now printed in Emanations

Our expectations descend through chasms of arcane wonder, where the Internet shapes marvelous new communities, even as the Academy breaks the chains of worn convention and formal discipline, sending forth a new class of scholars to explore the frontiers of unique realms. Amidst this progress, strangely enough and yet quite appropriately, consciousness rebels. In these pages are stories, poems, and essays that are exuberant, eloquent, and original—where expression and intelligence commingle in a flash of awakening. Whether this new consciousness is human or perhaps something greater remains to be seen, but by looking into our emanations we might find an answer. The first anthology to be released by International Authors, Emanations showcases the work of sixteen writers from around the world. With illustrations by Kai Robb, Dario Rivarossa and Vitasta Raina. Find it in Amazon.
