Mammon: A Poem In Three Acts by John A. Mills
In this poem-play, four people come to terms with the reality of the
current economic crisis. Two are a working class couple trying to
make a family. The other two are financial workers living in the
flush of the recent economic boom. The poem-play unfolds as each
deals with the ubiquitous and universal greed manifested in today's
world. Their lives are shattered as the deep immorality of the
present global economic system grinds to a disaster. The play is in
rhymed iambic pentameter to raise readers above the current profane
and uncivil arguments of this day and encourage them to bear witness
to the brutal inhumanity of greed. Click here for more information

Karen is playing on the beach when she finds an ancient mirror buried
in the sand. She looks into it, and is transported back in time to
the Roman empire.... http://www.cnposnerbooks.co.uk
