DUBROVNIK (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Aug 25, 2016 02:28PM
Description: The walled-in city of Dubrovnik is the rich paradise as the backdrop. This story spans friendships, love, lyrical images and palpable situations. Alexander Crown’s demeanor draws you in. He's challenging. His diplomacy is brutal. His hunger for Croatian independence is insatiable. Crown's partner Ivan Andric could help end tyranny in Croatia, even establish democracy in the country long ravaged by greed, deception and deadly obsessions. Dubrovnik is reality/fiction. Photos of the ancient city and surrounding areas are complementary visuals.
KISSING FREUD (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:35PM
Description: Psyche drama comedy.

Possibly this was not my kind of story, ah, but it was my kind of story. For me, there was too much contrived side-bar witty dialog. Some contrived wittiness is good, but Jr. Bender's waggish wit with every character he encountered, was met with jocu ...more
