Emanations 5

Emanations 2 + 2 = 5

Carter Kaplan has announced that, “Emanations: 2 + 2 = 5 is now in the final stages of production,” saying:

Here is a glimpse of the cover art by Ruud Antonius, taken from his painting The Fourth Plinth  (oil on panel, 100 x 80 cm).
Mr. Antonius is a Dutch painter who lives in the United Kingdom.  He has a large following in Europe where in the world of fine art surrealism enjoys greater support than it does in Britain and the United States.  Please click HERE to visit Mr. Antonius’s web site.

Carter Kaplan, whose blog and Facebook posts I always enjoy, has edited a book called Emanations: Second Sight, which is part of the required reading for a college course taught by Professor Donald Hassler at Kent State University. I’m looking forward to reading it myself.

The second anthology to be released by International Authors, Emanations: Second Sight showcases the work of thirty writers from around the world. With illustrations by Bienvenido Bañez, Jr., Troy C. Frantz, Terrance Lindall, Kai Robb, and Dario Rivarossa.

Reviewing the book on Amazon.com, Sue Hassler says, “The work of Marleen Barr in this collection of strange things is worth the price of admission alone. She has done some very respectable work in the mainstream of literary study but likes, also, to try her hand at experimental writing. Carter Kaplan’s brave and enterprising editing permits this for her in this context. Much else is attractive and brave in the pub. The collection should be very useful to many readers, and we have great hopes for its survival.”
