It Lives: Carter Kaplan’s Emanations: Second Sight Now Available on Amazon.com

Carter Kaplan has now published the second fantastically wonderful and weird Emanations anthology: Second Sight. It is available for purchase on Amazon.com here.

Sue Hassler has already written a review of the new book on Amazon, in which she says,  “The work of Marleen Barr in this collection of strange things is worth the price of admission alone.”

Horace Jeffrey Hodges has more to say about the new collection on his blog here.

I highly recommend the original Emanations, too. Check out both titles for your daily dose of the unknown!

The Williamsburg Circle of International Arts and Letters

Carter Kaplan, who recently joined the Williamsburg Circle of International Arts and Letters, circulated the group’s first press release, which you can find here or quoted below. I mentioned these new connections previously on dynamicsubspace.net here.

As Carter says on his website, good things should come of the collaboration between the Williamsburg Circle and International Authors. I wholeheartedly agree.

THE WILLIAMSBURG CIRCLE OF INTERNATIONAL ARTS AND LETTERS

For Immediate Release

February 1, 2012

In January 2012 the WAH Center created a new program called the Williamsburg Circle of International Arts and Letters. It is composed of twelve outstanding scholars, publishers, collectors, artists and innovators (see complete member list).

We believe that a strong education in the classical humanities is a fundamental prerequisite for good citizenship in every country in the world today. What is Classical Humanities? It is nothing less than the spiritual, ethical and intellectual foundation for Western culture. Classics is a vibrant, interdisciplinary field that lies at the heart of the liberal arts. It is the lack of a common heritage and common values that gives rise to basic conflicts among peoples. A broad education in the classical humanities can bring about a common understanding and a common set of values.

As many of you know, the WAH Center’s motto is “Peace, Harmony and Unity,” as Yuko Nii, the Founder, has written in the Bridge Concept upon which she founded the institution.

Invitation: We also welcome you to the very first of Our Events on April 14th, 2012 where you can meet our chairman Dr. Robert J. Wickenheiser, 19th President of St. Bonaventure University, and learn more about our goals and projects.

If you would like to contribute to our worthy goals, we would very much appreciate your support at our inception. If you are a scholar or artist and contribute $50 yearly as a supporting member, we will list your name with your discipline and contact information (and web-site, if you have one) on a special supporting member page. Click here for benefits.

We would very much like to get your feedback on our project!

International Authors Builds New Connections to the Williamsburg Art and Historical Center in Brooklyn, NY

Carter Kaplan tells me that exciting things are afoot with International Authors. He reports by email that:
International Authors is building connections with the Williamsburg Art and Historical Center in Brooklyn, NY.  Three IA board members joined the Williamsburg Circle of International Arts and Letters, and the WAH Center is interested in carrying IA publications in their bookstore.
If you are not familiar with IA, its website describes it as: “A consortium of writers, artists, architects, filmmakers and critics, International Authors publishes work of outstanding literary merit. Dedicated to the advancement of an international culture in literature, primarily in English, the group seeks new members with an enthusiasm for creating unique artistic expressions.”
I am a proud member of the IA Board of Advisors, and I am glad to hear about the growth of these rhizomic networks!
