The books shown below (and others) are all available from me. They are collections of poetry, except for The Taste of Fog, which is a work of fiction departing from an actual murder case from near Vienna in 1961. I had cause to take an interest in the case, which was another in a long list worldwide of instances in which the wrong person was convicted despite what seemed clear evidence that they were innocent. My story is speculation, while the real life story concerned a member of the Viennese side of my family. Elsewhere, much of the desert and Arizona is in the books, with occasional departures in other directions. The newest of these books is Bird on a Wire.
