Crossroads and Other Talesby Gregory Bernard Banks
Gregory Banks uses both poetry and prose to delve into such wide-reaching topics as depression, domestic violence, suicide, and more. In several pieces, he explores the various facets of Alzheimer�s Disease, showing not only how it affects the individuals caring for those with the disease, but also his vision of the inner hell sufferers of the disease must go through. In the poem, �Surreality,� he expresses how he felt on September 11, 2001 as the sky seemed to fall, while in the short prose piece, �The Calling,� he gives a brief but powerful glimpse into the difficult moments while awaiting the death of a loved one. With simple yet poetic craft, Gregory Banks, himself a lifetime sufferer of Osteogenesis Imperfecta, often uses humor as well as surrealism to show his broad range of literary skills.
Gregory Banks previously worked as a moderator for the original Zoetrope All-Story Writers Workshop, as a site administrator for Scrawl: The Writer's Asylum, and as webmaster for the WRITER and MARKET Literary Search Engine. He's now co-Webmaster for the new Speculative Literature Foundation. His past credits include volumes 1 and 3 of the �A Generation X Anthology� poetry series, The Rose & Thorn - A Literary Ezine, Story House, StoneGarden.net,.Creative Brother's Sci-Fi Magazine, and will soon appear in the April issue of the soon to launch, Pittsburgh-based magazine, The Writers Post Journal.
