Press copies available for review on .pdf, details available on the press release

Retail copies available on AMAZON and elsewhere


Now in its fourth year, this annual anthology of poetry from new media, social and professional networking, is mainly garnered from the professional networking website, LinkedIn, but also has contributions via poetry groups, performance and word of mouth. The submission process is unique in that choices for inclusion are made on the basis of emergent themes and congruency in the pool of work submitted; it is therefore also a snapshot of the poetry of NOW, seeking to capture the zeitgeist of the moment.

Keep on Keepin' On

From a biscuit crumb on your lover’s lips, to the death of a Princess, to the formation of galaxies far, far away, human is our condition, life is our journey, and come agony, joy, or even world-weariness, life is for living, keep on keepin’ on.

A new edition of

Love, Death and The War on Terror 

will be released   in March 2015, and will include five new poems.

Love, Death, and The War On Terror

We, the people, still meet each other, fall in love, and generate enough good in the world to counter and hopefully, in the end, overhaul the evil. The terrorists may murder, the soldier may die, but in the end, humanity has love, and love will conquer all.

This edition will include the "Obama" Trilogy.
