"We're on the Road to HUMATERNITY" is a fusion of story-telling, philosophical mini-essays, and poetry. From the innovative author of Weird Voyage Loveward, An Ode to Id and e-epic An Ode to Jack Kerouac: every piece is well-written, and much of it's profoundly controversial.

The book features stories like The Sparrows of Thailand, Remembrances of Sweden and Red Goblin Saves the World, a witty and brutal satire of the comics movie industry. It features poems like Atheistic Blossoms, A Few Highku, Francis Ford Coppola in the Jungle, and An Ode to HUMATERNITY (a term the author coined and a spirit he expresses eloquently.)

Also included are a number of philosophical and political mini-essays discussing subjects from the million Iraqis believed to have died in the last war to citizen rights to mind-alteration to patient rights to humane suicide. Diverse in form and subject, the book is tied together by a spirit of beat rebellion: a fierce insistence of placing experience and art over conformity and money-making.

Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady would have been proud.

Welcome back, Sean!
Dude! Where you been? Off writing books, obviously! Congrats on the publication!

Just a couple of eentsy tweentsy quibbles, just 'cuz I'm feelin' kinda quibbly today: You should unabashedly post this under Book Plugging, sez I, the universally-recognized Goddess of Shameless Self-Promotion. And for those of us too lazy to copy and paste that whole Borders URL, you can find the code for creating one o' them linky thingys here.

Bopped over to Amazon just because I shop there more than at Borders, and they had the "Humaternity" book listed but showing "temporarily out of stock." They DID, however, have "Road to Bohemia" available for Kindle, so I may just download that to the free Kindle app on my laptop. (So what's with all the "Road to..." stuff? Is this Hope, Crosby & Nelson "together again for the first time"?)

Plug away, dude! You go!
