The beginning of these present baleful times struck me with their resemblances to the world of the mad emperor Caligula. I began to retell his story using the phrasing of the news around us. Parallels to the modern ruling corruption threw themselves into the mix. Soon I had not a short poem but some 2400 words, and a title: Caligula Unbound. I sent the text to a dozen beta readers and their enthusiastic responses encouraged me. I thought to publish it as a paperback or as an e-book. But I dithered and some time has passed. I do want to make Caligula Unbound available to more readers. So I will soon be placing it on the WordPress Earth Tourist site at birdcreekblues.com.
Thank you, Weerwijzer!
Sounds good, Alan, will look out for it. You putting any links on here?
Cheers, Dave. When it arrives it will be here, on this site.
Sounds wonderful. I look forward to checking it out when it’s available.
Thanks, Elise :-)
