Ed Kuris

16 06 2011

A friend of mine has started a blog. Ed comes out of the fog of time via the coal fields of Nova Scotia and the mountains of Slovakia. He was the top student in advertising at the Ontario College of Art. For years he worked in the commercial art world but returned to his first love, painting. He is also a poet so his blog should be interesting. It would be well worth one’s time to check it out.

Day Shift

13 06 2011

On the edge of the universe awaits the parking lot. And the plaza. The peasants. The innocents. The cripples. The children’s games. And death. Where lives unwind in Bruegelish irony. Day Shift, the first in a series of three jazz novels.

End times

21 05 2011

If you want to read an interesting book about the ends of times try “The Pursuit of the Millenium”. Here is a quote about the book. “The end of the millennium has always held the world in fear of earthquakes, plague, and the catastrophic destruction of the world. At the dawn of the 21st millennium the world is still experiencing these anxieties, as seen by the onslaught of fantasies of renewal, doomsday predictions, and New Age prophecies.
This fascinating book explores the millenarianism that flourished in western Europe between the eleventh and sixteenth centuries. Covering the full range of revolutionary and anarchic sects and movements in medieval Europe, Cohn demonstrates how prophecies of a final struggle between the hosts of Christ and Antichrist melded with the rootless poor’s desire to improve their own material conditions, resulting in a flourishing of millenarian fantasies.”

I have written several fictional accounts of the end of time or at least its perceived end. Try reading The Death of Lou Grant. Or The Box by Matthew Chambers.
