I had the pleasure of writing the foreword to Athena Departs: Gospel of a Man Apart, a new poetry collection by my friend Clifford Brooks, who was a Georgia Author of the Year nominee for his previous collection. This new book, in my opinion, creates and explores a new Southern Mythology through poetics, fire, lightning, and as Zeppelin put it, a whole lotta love. Check it out at Amazon. It's available in print and digital versions. Thanks.
