I’ve made my latest poetry collection 242 Mirror Poems and Reflections, and the second of the greenYgrey fantasy rambles by www maps and info, a new concept for the modern digital age by a graduated Doctor of Philosophy (Britain’s best value, if not best overall), free to download in July on Smashwords, which provides a service for many e-readers, such as those provided by Barnes and Noble, Amazon and Apple.
My Sacrifice was Real, but not as Much as Soldiers etc
They represent about three years of hard thinking and editing work, finding time between working part-time and exercising for my marathons ambition. I probably would have earned about U.K. £100,000 – £150,000 / U.S. $150,000 – $225,000 more within academia.
As they’re free, I don’t have to sell them to you, but I know from my own experience, that now time is like a commodity, and you have so many options for how you spend your spare time; and if you do decide to read anything extensively, there are many, many choices too.

The initial reason for the decision to make them free to download is because it was suggested by Smashwords, but thinking about it, I dedicate it to a combination of the Somme remembrance; and as they are downloads, to this year’s good and nice Download attendees, including Rammstein, who have a song called Sonne, which is probably unrelated except in letters similarity; and those who wanted to attend but couldn’t. And all the great greenYgreyliens of course.
