His interdisciplinary approach to writing brings together several genres into one, as well as several historical eras.

His first book “The Tribe” is a powerful example of his symbolic and collaborative style. He draws upon the richness of both modern urban life and ancient culture within the context of an African centered perspective.

AWESOME!!! I read the Tribe and like most I am still waiting on the sequel, but this book sated my thirst until this October!!! Ezekiel is a young man who escaped the lunacy of his hometown only to be called back for the deaths of his brothers. The plot of this book is so outstanding that you won't be able to put it down!! If any of you know the bible and the book of Ezekiel you will wonder about the Wheel within a Wheel!! 5 STARS!!!! Mr. Townes has outdone himself with this one!!!!

Ezekiel Johnson lives in New York City. He is the youngest of seven and is originally from Cypress Point, a place he vowed never to return. He receives a telegram demanding him to come home. What will he do? “The Ides of March” is my first read by Gregory Townes. It started out slow for me. However, once Ezekiel returned to Cypress Point, things picked up. “The Ides of March” is full of twists and turns that makes for a definite page turner. Not everyone could enjoy this. I'd recommend to those who love sci-fi. Reviewed by: Jas
