Book One of Metropolis Fallen

By 2088, genetic engineering and nanotechnology have merged to create a near Elysian existence. Mankind is on the brink of immortality — disease, famine and pollution have been eradicated using this new technology — with seemingly magical results. Behind this perfect mask, however, lurks a hidden threat — revealed by puzzling, apparently random tragedies.

Ex Machina by Jonathan Ball Ex Machina
By Jonathan Ball

A long poem at the fringes of the Canadian tradition, Ex Machina is a latticework of poetic and philosophical statements concerning the symbiosis of humans, books, and machines. A series of three intertwining sequences, the reader is encouraged to move back and forth from statement to statement, seeking development but meeting frustration. The reader thus becomes a larval stage in the poem’s development, forging connections between its disparate parts during the course of this mental processing, as the text evolves over multiple readings.
Clockfire by Jonathan Ball Clockfire
By Jonathan Ball

A suite of poetic blueprints for imaginary plays that would be impossible to produce – plays in which, for example, the director burns out the sun, actors murder their audience, and the laws of physics are flagrantly violated. The poems in one sense replace the need for drama, and are predicated on the idea that modern theater lacks both ‘clocks’ and ‘fire’ and thus fails to offer its audiences immediate, violent engagement. They sometimes resemble the scores for Fluxus ‘happenings,’ but they replace the casual aesthetic and DIY simplicity of Fluxus art with something more akin to the brutality of Artaud’s theater of cruelty. Italo Calvino as rewritten by H. P. Lovecraft, Ball’s ‘plays’ break free of the constraints of reality and artistic category to revel in their own dazzling, magnificent horror.

The Childe The Childe
By C.A. Kunz

Cat Colvin is pretty much your typical run-of-the-mill teenager growing up in in the small port town of Astoria. Sure, she is taller than average, has a mane of fiery red hair that is impossible to tame, is left handed, and has one eye that is sky blue and one that is amber, but that is where the differences end . . . unless you include the “minor” detail of her slow metamorphosis into the Childe.
The 2012 Black Hole Killer The 2012 Black Hole Killer
By Aurthur T. White

They are all inextricably linked to the universe’s fate. Follow the Hindu Goddess Kali as she follows her fate toward December 21, 2012 … the day the universe is scheduled to end.
Religion Versus Science Religion Versus Science
By Ron Frost

As commonly presented the great battle between science and religion over evolution is intractable. In his book, Frost maintains that the approaches both sides take in the debate drive most of the fury in it. Although the facts of evolution are beyond doubt, the big mistake that many scientists make is to present these facts using a materialistic premise that is not scientifically defendable. The resulting model for evolution implies that humans arose on this planet merely by chance, that the value of our lives is based only upon the genes that we carry within us, and that our lives are essentially meaningless. Naturally religious people recoil in horror at such a bleak view of human existence.
