At once epic and intimate, this volume of poetry manages to evoke a world of gentle lyricism, as well as more shocking visions.
There are tender, romantic poems, and darker, more haunting works, as well as introspective meditations.
It has the feel of a secret diary, and the scope of a prophetic hymn.
Having taken twenty years to complete, it is a testament of the author's feelings on life, and uses the striking metaphor and the powerful image to summon up a world of heightened sensation.
At once dark, and light, romantic and sceptical, humorous and grave, innocent and world-weary.
It is a dream.
It is waking next to the one you love.
It is a journey into the widest and loneliest deserts of a post-disaster landscape, and into the smallest corners of our hearts.
But most of all, it is a book that once you have read, you will never, ever be able to forget.

About the Author
Hello, and thank you for checking out my books! And thank you also to all of you who have already read and enjoyed my previous titles. So far, I have published two stories, the first being 'Panzerfaust: The Fall of Nazi Germany,' and then 'Blood of a Barbarian.' Both have sold more copies than I ever dreamed of, and I am very happy about that, and grateful. My plan is to write a whole series of books set in ancient Rome, ancient Egypt, WW2 and WW1. I am even thinking of a couple of stories set during the times of the Knights. Some of my titles will be stand alone books, while most will be part of an ongoing series. 'Blood of a Barbarian,' for example, is just the first in a series of five novellas. It usually takes me two to three months to complete a new work, so please bare with me while I work on the next installment. Next up, I have a tale set in the ancient lands of Egypt, and it will be out well before Christmas, 2016. After that, I have some more ideas for WW2 stories, and then back to my gladiator series. To tell you something about myself, I got interested in writing by reading a great deal of history when I was a child. I like the idea of stepping back into time, and living in the skin of a historical person, even if only one I have made up. After serving in the militia, I then took a degree in art at OCAD in Toronto, then spent the next decade travelling and mountaineering. These foreign excursions encouraged me all the more towards wanting to write, and I love to include things I've actually seen in real life, and experienced. I hope that you will enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them!
