EX LITEROTICA by Peter Magliocco:  Out of an imaginary hotel called Ex Literotica, located in the gambling mecca of Las Vegas, the author-in-residence presents ninety-eight poems dealing with life, love, art, and many other pivotal subjects that emanate from his experiences in Sin City, where the struggle to advance human values is, at times, threatened by a culture whose primary focus is the mighty dollar. There are also several other poems presenting different locales wherein diverse poetic techniques come into play that attempt to reveal for the reader the panoply of inner visions existing everywhere in our daily lives -- if only we'd stop and appreciate them, that is. Realizing that the quest for love and for proverbial meanings in life motivates many people, this book gives an artful blueprint for exploring the endangered and complex interior experiences of us all. (Binding: Trade paperback...Publisher: Publish America...Price: $19.95, plus $3.50 S & H from Publish America, P.O. Box 151, Frederick, MD 21705... ISBN-13: 9781424150060... ISBN: 142415006X... 142 p.)

 

HIAWATHA ROCKS by Peter Magliocco:  A novel of depth and passion set in the California-dreaming environs of the early 1970s, Hiawatha Jones begins: "Nem awoke in the hospital, thinking of himself as Hiawatha Jones and remembering medicine chants. Only recently he held great aspirations for becoming a great Rock & Roll musician; now, how could he have sunk to this?" His story is one shared by many young Americans during a Viet Nam war era dramatically affecting the lives of returning Vets and countercultural types against all wars as well ... (Binding: Trade paperback ... Publisher: Airleaf (www.airleaf.com)... ISBN: 159437976 ... Price: $12.95 plus S & H from Airleaf... 254 p.)
 
"This was the seventies:  the coming downside of the sixties, the cultural crash and with it came a time of considerable confusion, of misdirection, of upheaval and disillusion, the time of Hiawatha Rocks. Magliocco takes you there."
 
-- Alan Catlin, noted small press poet & author
