  • Sommer und Mehr

    by Autoren_Netzwerk
    »Sommer und Mehr« - der Titel einmal ausgesprochen, bietet viel Platz für Phantasiereisen, einem jeden Einzelnen ganz nach seiner Facon. Für den Einen ist »Mehr« - DAS Meer, die Assoziation mit Meeresrauschen, sanften Wellenbewegungen und heißem Sand. Dem Anderen fallen hundert Dinge ein, die nahezu unlöslich mit dem Sommergedanken verknüpft sind, während einen Dritten Gerüche oder Geräusche inspirieren, die viel mehr vom »Mehr« als vom Sommer handeln. So unterschiedlich wie die eigenen Gedank... more

  • The Bloviator: Sex, Drugs, Fraud, Suicide, Murder, Scandal, Adultery, Quackery, Corruption, Superstition and President Warren G.

    by jim yoakum
    Sex, drugs, scandals, murder, suicides and President Warren G. Harding. THE BLOVIATOR is a satirical novel, "a fiction fueled by fact," based on the true, last (and unbelievably bizarre) 6 months in the life of America's 29th President. THE BLOVIATOR is an epic, a massive and sprawling work - it is history as absurdity, as if it were being filtered through a cracked prism - but the prism is not cracked as most of the story told is unbelievably, incredibly true.
