Anthology: Kale is a Four Letter Word
Publisher: Artemesia Publishing, LLC (September 1, 2020)

“The Ultimate Vegetable – Part 1” ♦ with Jasmine Tritten
“The Ultimate Vegetable – Part 2” ♦ with Jasmine Tritten
“The Ultimate Vegetable – Part 3” ♦ with Jasmine Tritten
“Kale des Ordures – a ‘Down the Hatch” Kale Recipe”

Kale has invaded our culture as the go-to food for healthy living, appearing everywhere on restaurant menus, in grocery stores, and beauty products like soaps and scrubs. It’s in salads and sandwiches, on pizzas, in soups and stews, and even salted as chips. For many, it shouts, “Eat me. I’m good for you.” For others, the vitamin load and beneficial fiber cannot outweigh the bitterness and texture of this member of the cabbage family. For those people, kale has ignited a passionate response, often reflected in internet memes and T-shirt slogans. This collection of short stories shows kale in a new light. Some stories present the perspective of those who introduce kale to their spouses and the reaction of those who are so targeted. A couple of tales are horror stories about kale’s effect on a life; another one describes a speculative history of kale; one is a murder mystery where kale plays an unusual role; and one is a fantasy about kale’s rivalry with another popular, competing vegetable, cauliflower. This book also has delicious recipes that feature kale as the primary ingredient. A word of caution, though. One recipe was written by someone with a novel approach to cooking kale.

Anthology: Anthology Askew Volume 007: Askew Thrills
Publisher: RhetAskew Publishing (December 1, 2019)

“Again for the First Time” ♦ with Sandi Hoover [pp. 173-193]

For this seventh Anthology Askew volume, we asked our authors to thrill us, and they didn’t disappoint. Thrills can mean different things to different folks, and when you are Askew, you never know what you will discover when you look. In these pages, you will find action, adventure, romance, fear, and a host of writing that spans genres and styles. From hard-hitting fantasy with a half-dragon hero, to diabolical science fiction, where the plot twists will grab you and never let go. The ride includes a little of everything, from the thrills of a rediscovered lost love, to the chills of scientific experiment gone horribly awry. I think it is only fair to let it be known that there ARE some very strong and explicitly narrated stories inside. If you are easily frightened, or squeamish, you may want to find a hand to hold when you read it.

Anthology: SouthWest Writers 2019 Winners Anthology: Annual Writing Contest
Publisher: Independently published (September 4, 2019)

“But What If the Buddhists Got it Wrong” [pp. 88-93]

The 2019 SouthWest Writers Annual Writing Contest Winners Anthology. The motto of SouthWest Writers is “Writers Helping Writers.” We do this through classes, conferences, workshops and a membership of more than 370 people―many of whom are published, well-known authors. Twice monthly meetings offer insights and opportunities for networking. The Annual Writing Contest offers an important step in an author’s development. It focuses on short pieces of poetry, non-fiction essays and genre-driven short prose―less than 3,500 words. The contest allows both budding authors and seasoned writers to sharpen their skills. Sixteen categories were offered, and awards were given for First, Second, and Third place in each. Many new authors need a challenge in a supportive environment where they can feel comfortable discussing their work. A true success story begins with being courageous enough to put your skills in front of others. Our words are our children, so we need to understand that constructive criticism does not condemn, it helps us mold and grow out talents. Seasoned published writers can fall into a rut. Contests such as this one divert their minds and talents in different directions, freshening their skills and pushing their boundaries. Here you will enjoy winning entries in each category. At the time of the contest these stories had not been previously published, however, the author had the right to pull their work from this anthology if they chose to retain first publishing rights for use elsewhere. These stories are fun, or sad, or factual, or surprising―many of them are all these things. The genres are randomly mixed through the book. Pay attention to the names of the authors―you will probably see them again!

Title: Electronic Aggressors
Sub-title: US Navy Electronic Threat Environment Squadrons – Part One 1949-1977
Editor: Angelo Romano
Publisher: Ginter Books (August 27, 2019)

“Get-Home-Itis” [pp. 144-146]

The first book in a two-book series, this volume covers Fleet Electronic Warfare Support Group’s (FEWSG’s) activities, vital to fleet training, but still unknown to many. Angelo Romano has done a superb job of writing the complete history of FEWSG, its units and their histories. In particular, Part One covers the history of VAQ-33 through its previous designations, VC-33, VA(AW)-33 and VAW-33, from 1949 to 1969, when the squadron mission ranged from Day & Night Attack with conventional weapons, Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW), Electronic (or Electro-magnetic) Counter Measures (ECM), Target Towing, All-Weather Fighter and, when assigned to CVBs, Nuclear Weapons Delivery. With the establishment of FEWSG in 1969, VAQ-33 changed its mission to Electronic Warfare (EW) training. Plenty of historical photos illustrate in detail the Squadron activities both at sea and ashore. These two books are dedicated to the women and men of the Electronic Aggressors.

Anthology: Anthology Askew Volume 005: Fantastically Askew (February 1, 2018)

“No Longer in Service” ♦ with Sandi Hoover

This is the fifth installment of the Askew Anthology series, and this volume is about the worlds of fantasy. We challenged our writers to explore the realms of fantasy from new perspectives, such as magepunk (a blending of the steampunk genre with the magic elements of a fantasy) to other outside the box takes. We weren’t disappointed in the results. As usual, we found that sometimes, our askew authors and poets color far outside the lines, and that is a wonderful part of being askew as well. In these pages you will experience fantastic worlds where technology and magic coexist in harmony, and others where the two collide head-on, leaving a swath of pain and destruction in their wake. We have hidden worlds, journeys through time, and even a high-tech wizard or two. This volume also marks the appearance of some of our youngest askew talent yet. Short stories, flash stories and poetry by some of the brightest new teen stars on the askew horizon await you in this volume. Let go of your preconceived ideas about what fantasy means, come explore what being Fantastically Askew is all about, in both poetry and prose. We think you will find the journey one that you won’t soon forget.

“To Begin Again” ♦ with Chris Allen and Maureen Cooke

In this fourth journey into the hearts and minds of askew wordsmiths, we challenged our artists to explore the many facets of communication, in any of its forms. They didn’t let us down. In these pages, you will have a chance to experience some of these forms of communication, from letters and journals, to radio and video transmissions. We will explore both the fulfillment that comes from communicating successfully, and the remorse or despair that can arise when we try to do so and fail. There is perhaps no other group of people for whom the communication of ideas and stories means more, than the authors and poets who are compelled to share their visions and their imaginations with the world. We hope you have fun reading these many different views of what communication means. We have once again brought together some of the best writing talent to be found. Prepare to experience an array of perspectives that is truly like no other, and definitely askew.

“Kato’s Grand Adventure” ♦ Co-author: Jasmine Tritten

Nine lives, four paws and endless furry antics to entertain us. Cats are creatures of habit but what happens when those they love and trust cast them out? They end up in shelters or on the streets all across the world. Their habits become shaken and they must adapt. It is extremely difficult for them to learn to trust again. There are those that are willing to take the time however. Cats are calming, lovable animals that can purr their way into your heart without you even realizing it. If you take the chance to adopt or foster one of these incredible balls of fluff you will find yourself bending over backward just to hear their adorable meow and snuggle with them at night. They are work but they are worth it. It is too bad we don’t have nine lives as well. Perhaps then we would have enough time to repay all of the joy and love they bring into our lives.

Publisher: Museum of the American Military Family (December 2016)

“Two Old Soldiers”

Unlike World War II, when the war effort was shared by all, the role of the entire family in a military deployment has been overlooked. Yet moms and dads serve as well, as do husbands and wives, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, along with other loved ones. Military service is a family affair as the stories and poems in the volume testify.

Written by New Mexico veterans as well as family members and others with close connections to someone in uniform, each reflection contributes to a rich understanding of what it means to contribute to military life by those out of uniform as well as those who wear one.

Doctrine ReaderTitle: A Doctrine Reader
Sub-title: The Navies of the United States, Great Britain, France, Italy, and Spain
Publisher: Department of the Navy (2006)
Genre: Military Nonfiction

In March 1993, the United States Navy and Marine Corps established the Naval Doctrine Command as the primary authority for the development of naval concepts and integrated naval doctrine. Although this was the first time the sea services had established a formal command to prepare and publish multi-service naval doctrine, it was not the first time that either service, or navies in general, had formal written doctrine. In the minds of most serving officers, however, doctrine was something new for the fleet. The major message of A Doctrine Reader is that naval and navy doctrine is not new and there is value today in reviewing the lessons from of past doctrinal development experiences. Newport Paper #9 contains the results of research conducted on 5 navies. Each has a unique story to tell, and each story has value for us today. This paper concludes with an interpretive essay on the relationship of doctrine to technology and makes a strong case for the uniqueness of naval warfare.

Our New National Security Strategy jpegTitle: Reconstituting America’s Defense
Sub-title: The New U.S. National Security Strategy
Publisher: Praeger (1992)

Genre: Military Nonfiction

This book analyzes President Bush’s new Regional Defense Strategy–the master plan that will guide the transformation of U.S. defense policy for the post-Cold War era. Most recent books on defense prescribe how U.S. policy ought to change or critique past policies without taking Bush’s new strategy into account. This book takes a different approach, providing the first comprehensive assessment of the new Regional Defense Strategy, analyzing the consequences for U.S. forces and alliance relations, and examining the political difficulties of transforming President Bush’s vision into reality. It explains major changes in U.S. defense doctrine and strategy, force and command structure, future programming requirements, and the major question of how such a significant change was managed in the United States.

Publisher: Westview (1986)

Genre: Military Nonfiction

Based on formal content analysis of the writings of Admiral Gorshkov and past Soviet ministers of defense and heads of the Politburo, James Tritten interprets what the Soviets say they will do in the event of nuclear war. He then constructs a hardware and exercise analysis of the strategic employment of the Soviet Navy in a nuclear war, offering three possible cases–the “bolt from the blue,” with existing forces on patrol; full mobilization; and a plausible case of partial mobilization. In addition, Dr. Tritten examines, from a Soviet perspective, concepts of deterrence, the strategic goals and missions of the fleet, nuclear targeting policy, the Sea Lines of Communication disruption mission, and the potential for tactical nuclear warfare limited to the sea. The author concludes by assessing the implications of Soviet politico-military planning for Western defense strategy and arms control.
