RUMI at the age of 37 meets SHAMS-E TABRIZI (the Sun of Tabriz) “a weird figure wrapped in coarse black felt, who flits across the stage for a moment and disappears tragically enough.” Shams has variously been described as: “being extremely ugly;” “a most disgusting cynic;” and having an “exceedingly aggressive and domineering manner.” Jalaluddin, who until then had no interest or liking for poetry “found in the stranger that perfect image of the Divine Beloved which he had long been seeking. He took him away to his house, and for a year or two they remained inseparable…Rumi’s pupils resented their teacher’s preoccupation with the eccentric stranger, and vilified and intrigued against him until Shams fled to Damascus. Rumi sent his son to bring him back; but the tongues of his jealous traducers soon wagged again, and…in 1247, the man of mystery vanished without leaving a trace behind.” These bilingual lyrical odes were all inspired by Shams of Tabriz.

Sammon gives Trump common sense advice on how he can become a more effective leader by becoming a human being instead of a jerk.
Trump doesn’t think he needs to be honorable. Sammon tells him different.
As in the first book Oh Don, installments of Oh Don, Once Again were posted weekly to Trump’s Facebook page where they were erased by someone 10 minutes after posting.
Trump or his cronies can erase the comments in Oh Don, Once Again, off of his website. But they can’t erase the difference between right and wrong. That’s what this book is all about.
Guns at the Abyss, a first edition political drama by novelist John Sammon, is being released on Web-e-Books® in support of world-wide, cross-platform distribution of his book on the origins of World War I, and one woman’s attempt to prevent it. The Tri-Screen Connection, LLC, publisher and distributor of the exclusive e-book, is providing the technology platform and online shopping website for Guns at the Abyss.
In the Story
It’s summer in the spectacular Bosnian city of Sarajevo. A lightning strike of terror is being clandestinely directed at the future king and his princess bride while the royals parade among welcoming crowds in an open touring car. In the midst of this diverse population of Balkan bystanders are Serbian assassins stalking the presumptive heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne. The killers attack twice, delivering injurious and fatal hits.
Outrage and bitterness from within the Austro-Hungarian government touch off a siren call for punishment of majestic proportion. The allied Central Powers of Austria-Hungary, including Germany, demand retribution by deliberately issuing an irreconcilable ultimatum; to be followed by a quick, decisive invasion to crush Serbian nationality.
At Berlin’s office of the Chancellor, a respectful clerk named Ernst Frieslaven is asked to comment on his country’s strategy. His answer foretells the brewing political conflict between ordained, old-world monarchies and emerging and open modern democracies.
Frieslaven loses his ideological balance, challenged for his patriotism by officials who learn of his romance with a charmingly seductive activist, Rosa Liber. While Frieslaven agonizes, his lover plots a dangerous version of civil disobedience influenced by an oppressive past of prejudice and torment. Shamelessly, she sets out on an assassination attempt of her own to prevent the German Empire’s fanatical expansion.
Blood of the Unknowns, a sequel to Guns at the Abyss, is the second of two novels of political intrigue and warfare that follow a woman’s attempt to prevent the spreading cataclysm of events that ignite World War I. In Blood of the Unknowns, we visit the outcome of her vain political activism, and the misfortunes of her husband, a former assistant to the German Chancellor, now consigned to the machine of war as a low-ranking army private fighting at the behest of militarist aristocrats supportive of the imperialist government’s expansionary view of a European continent.
Under the moonlight, he and a fellow German soldier, a dark-skinned Gypsy recruit, share the same crowded stand in a muddy, hand-shoveled trench on the deadly Western Front. As oddly paired as two men of different backgrounds and experience might be, Privates Frieslaven and Maruska hunker in protective friendship, a vital, cooperative defense against enemy sniper fire, bombs and bayonets, and the failures of German leadership that result in the sacrifice of tens of thousands of men pushed beyond human capacity.
The human toll of death and gruesome injury soars on a daily basis as constant waves of courageous soldiers snip through braced lines of rolling barbwire, crawl across pock-marked fields, and watch in war-weary horror as compatriots ordered to charge are felled by machine gun fire so thick that retreat is inevitable for those few left standing. Unilateral surrender is not a choice, however bloodied the troops.
An absolutely staggering account of soldiers at war. Makes you seem to be there, gasping with fright, sick to the stomach at the horror of war in having to kill and killing advancing ground troops. A must read for any soldier.
Wow! Powerful! Well written, scary, sad.
Brings the horror of trench warfare to“ life”; no pun intended.
