A Bemerton Anthology
Our Price: $9.95

Eleven poems of George Herbert selected by Barbara Murray, and twenty-one poems by Barbara Murray. With drawings by Guy Ottewell of Bemerton near Salisbury in England, where George Herbert was parish priest from 1630 to 1633.
“Most of [Barbara Murray's] poems are, as true poetry is, driven by real feeling and crafted out of surprisingly found words. The first few . . . seem the most necessitated, meant, in any language; beside them, many other poems seem to be acts of play that could have been left undone.”

6 x 9 in., 43 pages, drawings, color cover. 2010. ISBN 978-0-934546-57-7.

Ten Minute History of the World
Ten Minute History of the World
Our Price: $7.95

These were originally talks given extemporaneously to human-rights groups. The Ten-Minute History is an attempt to answer the question as to whether things are really better or worse than in the past, whether they will ultimately get better, whether there is point in our struggle - what the curve of history is.
The Troy Town Tale
Our Price: $29.00
Sale Price: $16.95

Homer's Iliad (the fountainhead of European literature) recounts just a few days in the tenth year of the war of Troy. Later writers added other episodes - onward to the end of the siege and its aftermath, back many generations to its roots - until it became the collective dream of the Western world.

This novel for the first time weaves the great story mass into a unified whole. The famous characters teem (Helen, Hector, Paris, Achilles, Agamemnon, Ajax, Priam, Cassandra . . .) but the narrator is a surprising one, a female captive.
