Reading The Sheltering Sky and am blown away again by its droll decadence from another age. Bowles' picturing of shabby, unsafe wanderings in places where maybe you shouldn't be is still alluring. Still what I do when I travel.
Bowles allows you to go to times that are gone and to feel all the wonderful places that are never to be the same. And it's all with people you've never known but recognize, and want to linger with for their failings.

There is new evidence to support reincarnation in an NPR interview and posted on FaceBook. It is similar to the concept I use in my Invisible Soft Return:\ as a theme. It is that consciousness can create matter (as Max Planck proposed). Instead of quantum physics I call it stepping into the same streams over and over.
Check out the NPR interview: http://www.npr.org/2014/01/05/2598860...

OK OK, so I've been remiss. Don't post, don't blog...good grief, can't take me anywhere!
I just get way wrapped up in writing, living...stuff. No excuse.
Anyway, I have new book out on amazon:
Invisible Soft Return:\
Yes, end punctuation is part of the title. It's sci-fi and a departure for me. It's my foray into quantum physics, sex and fear of death--or really, not dying.
What if the old adage is wrong: We do indeed step into the same streams more than once, and at the same time? What if identity is a crisscrossing melange of time, space and actions that stick to us with a retributional vengeance?
Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Invisible-Soft-...
Check it out. Paper & ebook available.

Listen to my interview on the Romance Radio Network by Desmond Haas.
We talk about my books, writing and Desmond does an excellent job in general of getting the word out on words...
