Summary

An anthology of essays and poetry exploring the Motor City’s hidden corners—from the people who live and work there. It seems like everybody in Detroit thinks they know the city’s neighborhoods, but because there are so many, their characteristics often become muddled and the stories that define them are often lost. Edited by Aaron Foley—author of How to Live in Detroit Without Being a Jackass—this intimate and wide-ranging collection offers revealing perspectives on a city that many people think they have figured out.  A homegrown portrait about the lesser-known parts of the city, The Detroit Neighborhood Guidebook showcases the voices and people who make up Cass Corridor, West Village, Minock Park, Warrendale, Hamtramck, and almost every other spot in the city. Contributors include Zoe Villegas, Drew Philip, Hakeem Weatherspoon, Marsha Music, Ian Thibodeau, and dozens of others.
Available since: 08/21/2017.
Print length: 153 pages.

    This is an audio journey through a collection of original Nature photography paired with original poetry & prose. Within you'll find lyrical audio descriptions of photos spanning the landscapes of my home state of Vermont, as well as a curated selection of photos from Virginia. This art is paired with whimsical & impactful poetry in themes of ecology, fantasy, social justice (BIPOC, LBGTQIA+ & Women's Rights, aging & disability), literature, conservation, history, family trauma, healing, & never forgetting pure Fascination with the Wonders of the Universe.This work is intended to create access to the wonders & benefits of Nature to those who may have mobility issues, disabilities (including visual impairment), or who otherwise lack access to the healing power of Nature due to financial hardship; racial, social, or fat-biased exclusion; or other circumstances.Art, Science, Magic, Nature, Truth, Justice, Love, & Creativity: through Astrobridge Artistry, I aim to Communicate the Magic & Wonder of Nature, hoping to make the beauty & healing powers of the natural world accessible & inviting to all. As someone with multiple disabilities & limited mobility myself, I pride myself on taking photos of, & being inspired by, beautiful & whimsical scenes in natural places that are easily accessible. Whether I'm on a dirt road 2 steps from my car door, on an accessible nature trail, or even right on my own balcony in Montpelier, VT in my Magic Garden in the Sky, illustrating that the beauty of Nature can be more accessible than you think, & that you don't need to have the ability to climb a rocky mountain trail to witness the majesty of Nature, is one of my main missions. It is important to me to share my photos & writing with a world with ever diminishing access to the truth & natural surroundings.2 photos are credited to my Mother, Diana Whittington (the Rainbow's Daughter & There & Back Again), & another is in Public Domain; the remainder of the photos were taken by me.

    Prime Minister Robert Saleh feels helpless as his economy stagnates year after year. When a representative of the shadowy organization known as Armageddon offers funding for several national-level infrastructure projects, he can’t resist signing an overly expansive contract. News of this secret agreement, which includes a level of mercenary support for national security, sparks international concern. 
    Saleh hopes to play Armageddon’s investments against those of Australia and the United States, who’d focused their interest and resources elsewhere. Unfortunately, the cash flowing into Saleh’s pockets blinds him to the devastating consequences he’d unilaterally set in motion. 
    Gar Randolph and his ever-changing team of technical experts receive the call to keep an eye on things. “Remain unseen and unnoticed. More importantly, neutralize anything that isn’t in the best interest of the Saintly Islands.”   
    Events escalate until Gar takes decisive action.
