Free: Rainbow Gardens

Rainbow Gardens

 

Japanese immigrant Harry Shikita has a dream: To become a successful businessman by building Rainbow Gardens, Minnesota’s first neon-lit motel. But the 1920s are a tough time to be an “Oriental” in America, and Harry must deal not only with prejudice, but also the trolls.

Yes, trolls. The kind that turn to stone. Cursed descendants of Cain, the trolls live all over the world and are trying to find their way back to God through their Redeemer.

The trolls think Harry’s their guy, but Harry’s on his own quest to be a pillar of the community, an “old boy.”

The fates of Harry and the trolls intertwine in a romp through history, providing a unique look into American life–from the sexual liberation of the Roaring 20’s to the violence of two world wars. Will Harry accept his calling and become the trolls’ bridge to God’s grace? The answer lies within the neon paradise of Rainbow Gardens. Free on Kindle.

Free: Walking with a Joystick: A Spiritual Adventure

Walking with a Joystick: A Spiritual Adventure
This book is a nonfiction wrapped in a fiction. In India, most of the ancient literature also used this kind of setting. A small entertaining story is weaved around the more important topics. The important part is always explaining some core issues of our existence. But they are always presented in a question-answer manner. So a need for this discussion is created in the story; and then instead of just giving a lecture, an entertaining dialogue ensues. The same tradition is followed in this book as well. The various topics of jealousy, ego, attachment, contentment, doubt, illusion, and happiness are raised as part of the story. Free on Kindle.

The Cause of Darkness – A Story of the Civil War

The Cause of Darkness- A Story of the Civil War

‘The Cause of Darkness’ is the story of a 16-year-old boy named Teddy Miller set during the last full-year of the American Civil War. Teddy lives with his father and brother in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. They lead more-or-less normal lives even while the War rages around them.

But everything changes when their farm is burned, and Teddy’s father is arrested and sentenced to hang for espionage. Teddy’s single-minded quest to save his father reads like a grand adventure, full of gunfights, horse chases and 19th-century justice. There is even a beautiful Pinkerton detective who plays a major role in Teddy’s exploits. But nearly all the adult characters act solely in their own self-interest and few have Teddy’s welfare at heart. Left without adult guidance, Teddy takes actions to save his father which have consequences that he cannot fully comprehend; and it is the consequences of these actions that drive the novel to its conclusion. $4.99 on Kindle.

Fargo Burns

Fargo Burns“Fargo Burns, the madly baffled, restless and beguiling subject of Kos Kostmayer’s compelling novel, bounces like a pinball between excell and sobriety-as do we, his unsettled readers. Kosymayer’s visceral account of one man’s quest for quiet normality is dark, tense, playful and deeply affecting.”-Jim Crace, author of Being Dead See price on Kindle.

Connection Lost – An Anthology of Zen Poetry in Urban Settings

Where are you right now? What surrounds you? How does it feel? We got used to looking at ourselves and other human and non-human things as functional objects which exist only as long as they fulfill a purpose. But what is it that lets us be? What is it that keeps us alive? A pun on technology and the true essence of being, Connection Lost is a sensory journey from a back yard in London to the Amazon jungle – a bunch of thoughts and written images that will keep you company in the city, in the woods, by the seashore, on the train. Written in English with Italian parallel text, 15 poems and a short essay will take you on a journey into awareness, oneness, through the city, the nature, around self, art and poetry, Covid-19 and isolation. With influences ranging from Heidegger to Timothy Morton, from Ezra Pound to Matsuo Bash?, with Douglas Wood in between, the author tries to carry out what appears to be the essential task of poetry: to let the world that’s already there emerge and become visible to the reader through language.

Available in Kindle and paperback edition. Please note, the Italian edition is written in English too, the text is bilingual. See price on Kindle.
