We seek strong literary voices and bring them to light. Electronic publishing is an opportunity to turn back time to affordable distribution and open competition, for the writers’ benefits but, more importantly, for yours as readers. These are exciting literary times. We’re glad to have you along for the ride!

Max Jordan believes in dreams. Oh, not literally. He doesn’t think they can predict the future, for example; but, in some more subtle way, there is something more to them than most people realize. He says, they are like peripheral vision. And if we examine the incidental things in dreams, not those that seem to be the center of attention, they can offer some clues to truth below the surface, not of the dream, but below the surface of our lives. $2.99.
