    Three years of war. One hundred-fifty thousand dead. One million refugees. No end in sight. This is the grim reality of the conflict in Syria, one of the great tragedies of the modern era. Yet many people remain confused as to what the fighting is all about.

    The Plain Of Dead Cities makes sense of this complex scenario, by delving deep into the wells of Syrian history and examining the vital role that Syria has played in human development over the past 5000 years. Using a unique approach The Plain Of Dead Cities takes the reader of a virtual tour of Syria. The narrator carries you across the country, through the history books and archaeological sites, revealing the political, religious, social, geographical and historical complexities that have led to the current military conflagration.

    The Plain Of Dead Cities is as unconventional as the land it describes, part non-fictional memoir and part fiction. The Plain Of Dead Cities is an adventure and a tale, but above all is a tribute to Syria, that most mystical of lands.

    Stephen Fife’s powerful lens pinpoints daily drama and delusion in our Twenty-first Century mysterium. 
                —Jean-Claude van Itallie, author of America Hurrah and The Serpent 

    Stephen Fife’s poems crystallize those moments when one is walking through a great city—almost always New York—taking in faces, storefronts, the great bridges and skyscrapers, and the most minute details of everyday life. There are portraits and still-lifes, glancing observations and extended meditations—a vast web of human interactions that enable us to enter this world, with pathos and understanding, as both participants and observers. 
                —Nicholas Christopher

    Thirteen poems that "wrestle with the 'big things' . . . love, death, birth, war. Sean Bentley is the son of Nelson Bentley, the famed poet and revered teacher of poetry at the University of Washington in Seattle. The acclaimed poet, Beth Bentley (see "Little Fires" from Cune Press) is Sean's mother. Sean spent what should have been his dissolute and rebellious teenage years attending evening poetry workshops with his father. Later, in his 20s, Sean's delayed rebellious impulses emerged as he and some questionable friends started a raucous rock 'n roll band. Grace & Desolation channels the rebellion of Bentley's rock 'n roll inside the teenager's carefully honed craft. These poems were written from what was then the safe vantage point of the US as we, as a nation, slumbered in the aftermath of the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait and the First Gulf War that followed in 1991. Most of Bentley's poems are about the quiet personal dramas of ordinary life, local visits to overgrown bunkers from WWII, traveling in Italy, remembering the holocaust. A single poem recalls the Gulf War, just a few lines. Yet they have colored my memory of Bentley's book and made me think of the way that far removed foreign events are not really foreign, and not far removed.

    In the 1960s ago Tom Wolfe and John McPhee ushered in the era of New Journalism with reportage that had the color and drama of fiction. In Lost Arrow, a younger writer builds on their achievements and pushes the genre in a new direction. Rather than examining his subjects from the outside, Scott C. Davis reports from within - he really is a mountain climber, for example, and has worked as a carpenter for many years. Davis is engaged - a position that yields special insight and also allows him to turn the reportorial lense back on a skeptical society. Some of the stories in Lost Arrow are gripping, others are sweet. Several first appeared in the Christian Science Monitor's Home Forum - the last literary general store left from a simpler America where "reminds-me-when" stories provided insightful, sometimes withering, commentary.

    From MAKING SCHOOLS SAFE, an independent report on the Horace Mann Sex Scandal and on Sex Abuse in Private Schools in general:

    "One headmaster [at Horace Mann High School] said there were no records of known reports [of teachers molesting students], not seeming to grasp that the lack of written reports is itself an indictment, since we know that students complained to school authorities. In other words, the administrators who should have recorded all complaints instead dismissed them. 'There are no documents that an investigation would turn up,' [we were told]. Knowledge and awareness, however, are not so easily lost, along with the obligation to act and speak out."

    Now that the scope of abuse has been revealed to include 62 victims of 22 abusers over decades, it’s beyond incredible that Horace Mann would have no record of the largest concentration of child sexual abuse ever in one school -- particularly one of the most prestigious private prep schools in America. Concerned alumni who gathered to understand what happened have learned as well of more than 25 reports of abuse the school received and buried over thirty years.
