WARRIORS BENEATH THE SEA, walks with a German submariner as he returns to his hometown after World War I is over. Rubble and strange faces are all he sees as his guilt at being on the vanquished side marches along with his deeper guilt caused by actions he and his fellow submariners took when confronted with the impossible. He needs to find his family and cannot even find himself. Walk with him and learn the never-ending horrors of war; learn of those horrors that remain with the fighters long after the combat is but a memory, and what are memories made of? Perhaps memories are real, or are they simply relived? Then again, how far ahead are memories formed? Sometimes, it is hard to tell.

About the Author
Gregory St. John Taylor is indescribable, but we will try. He is a 6-foot, 71-year old, white, male, American professional with a ponytail and a beard. Some say he is a left-over Hippie, and in many ways, he is. In order to give you a handle on Greg, we will start with literary accomplishments. He has 139 e-Works in the Internet marketplace, as well as on his nine websites, one of which is a complete, online novel, a free read at www.shoppolisislands.com. The breakdown includes: 14 novels, 11 novellas, 19 novelettes, 6 plays, 10 poetry works, 23 short novels, 11 flash fiction pieces, 7 enterprise books, 10 junior cookbooks, and in the sensual & erotic category, 5 novelettes, and 7 short novels. Add 5 cartooned e-Pieces, 1 English grammar book with his wife, Liz, 3 non-fiction textbooks, 1 diabetes case study, as well as his popular historical science fiction series “Valiant Scatter” involving the inanimate expressions of sunken navy ships, particularly those lost during World War II. At this juncture, there are 5 published. He believes his guardian angel is one of these ships, HMS Glowworm H92, a British destroyer lost in 1940. He writes drama, humor, mystery, poetics, and experiments with new forms of expression. When considering style, which normally eludes him, it is thought that he is a latter-day Modernist stuck in a stream-of-consciousness rut proposing stories in a slice-of-life sequence. He is a technical writer, illustrator, editor; sketch artist; fine artist; playwright; caricaturist; cartoonist; and graphics designer. “I have written over 3,000,000 words of fiction, and this number is only the beginning,” he says. He is an alumnus of the Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, a graduate of Penn State University and served in the United States Air Force, 1966-1970. He isn’t all business, and as a skier, was fortunate enough to ski the Alps while stationed in Wiesbaden, Germany, 1966-1969. Greg became an accomplished horseman (English) as well as a polo player. Because of attending Admiral Farragut Academy in his youth, he became a sailor of both sailing vessels and power. Greg has been a member of Kappa Sigma fraternity, Alpha Delta chapter, Penn State, since 1964, a husband since 1976, a father since 1980, and a grandfather since 2002. At 71, he thinks the flag is close to holy, that veterans should be cherished, and that war should be outlawed. This attitude is reflected in his work. As you can see, he is totally indescribable.
