From A Great Writer And Humanitarian, Biola Olatunde

Blood Contract

Ken (Kenawari) left his village in the Niger Delta region many years ago, carrying with him emotional scars. However, he did make a life for himself in the city and built a reputation as a slick troubleshooter in inter-village disputes, of which there were many. He was one of the best operators on the books of the private security firm he worked for.

Then it happened. There was trouble in his tribal home. Reluctantly he agreed to return. Not only has he got to settle a dispute that resulted in kidnapping, and tread gingerly through the political minefield of the region - including local robber barons, but he also has to face the most fearsome obstacles of all - his past.

Blood Contract is not just an adventure set in the dangerous swamps of the Niger Delta, it is also the story of a man who is imperfect and must finally find some reconciliation with his past. Most of all, Biola Olatunde provides the reader with a vivid social commentary of the lives and challenges of those who live in this most neglected of corners of the earth.

fosebooks proudly presents the fantastic fosebook smokestack eBook. This is an exciting, thoughtful and dense book consisting of photography and poetry with an edge. A thin volume that weighs a ton. The focus is on the urban, the industrial, the bluesy and the beat-ish, with a variety of different styles. It's a free download!

There will hopefully also be a paperback version available at Lulu for $8.06. All revenues will go to WWF, which gives you yet another reason (among many) to buy it.

Included in fosebook smokestack is photography from J.B. Krost and poetry from Megan Duffy, Anders Enochsson, Jenny Enochsson, Peter Greene, Francis Scudellari and A’keith Walters.

Check out this brilliant book!

John Yamrus

For those of you who desire a break from the hum-drum drudgery of life, then I suggest you get yourself to:

and purchase DOING CARTWHEELS ON DOOMSDAY AFTERNOON by John Yamrus. It is a collection of delightful and refreshing, thought-provoking and sensual poems, employing an "everyday everyman's" motif of words. It is truly outstanding.
