Speculative Journeys: An Anthology of Scifi, Fantasy and other Strange Tales

explore the strange and endless possibilities of the future. how desperate will humans become? where will exploration, science and politics lead us? what will be the warning signs of the end. regardless of where you go to seek answers-a distant moon, the back streets of a dystopian society, a grave-the stories within these pages will keep you…

A narrative poem in traditional forms, Manhattan tells the archetypal New York story of a stranger arriving on shores of a new world. A book twenty-one years in the making, this tale of loss and wonder takes place over four days in 1995/96 just before Disney took over Times Square, five years before 9/11, and ten years before we began staring at smart phones. Today, Manhattan's sidewalks are being turned into aisles of a corporate mall as book shops, record stores, and taverns are replaced by banks, high-end clothing, and yogurt.

Take a walk back to a time when turnstiles took tokens, you didn't know when the next train was arriving, and the unseen voice in subway speakers wasn't a machine. Come along down the old side streets and, as the song says, "We won't be back til morning 'cause we're gonna take a walk/ On the sidewalks of New York."
