Red Lipstick And Relationships

Red Lipstick And Revelations By Jan Moran Neil

If this book were a tango it would be Salvador Dali, (e.g., the poem 'Sealed in Table Bay', with its dreamlike word associations) dancing with L S Lowry (e.g., the nostalgic 'Bread Pudding Days'). Add to that a sprinkling of finger-snapping jazz memes, and you will have an idea of the lyricism and originality of … Continue reading Red Lipstick And Revelations By Jan Moran Neil

Quantum Fiction

New London Writers

To aficionados of sci-fi, Quantum Mechanics is a well-known idea, however shouldn’t we think about Quantum Fiction? Could this be the new sci-fi supra-type? In the sci-fi universe Quantum Mechanics (or Physics) clarifies everything from teleportation to psychic phenomena, though in the realm of material science, Quantum Mechanics is the investigation of matter in movement through time and space. This antiquated limb of science has created the most critical revelations in mankind’s history, it is still a work in progress though with serious limitations.

This is a German weekly, normally too heavy to lift with one hand - perhaps equivalent to The Observer, except it appears Thursdays for some obscure reason. The article was by Harald Martenstein, senior editor … Continue reading Self Publish! It Can’t Get Any Worse

Love At The End Of A Rope
