It's a Philip K. Dick World!
“Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away.”
—Philip K. Dick
Government intrusion into our personal lives is increasing, the economy is shot and the media focus on hate and violence.
Philip K. Dick's fifth and last wife, Tessa Dick, talks about her husband. I have my own books and stories, as well.
A new literary journal recently launched their first quarterly issue. Trafika Europe showcases authors who might have been ignored, especially in English-language publications. This ground-breaking publication is well worth a visit to their web site at www.trafikaeurope.org
The journal is displayed as a flip-book.
The first issue, "Northern Idyll", focuses on
work from Europe's northern islands, with new poetry, stories and novel
excerpts translated from Gaelic and Shetland Scots, Faroese, Icelandic and
Norwegian, as well as new works from German, Russian, French, Slovenian and
One highlight, from the tiny culture of the Faroe
Islands, is a chapter translated from Jóanes Nielson's The Brahmadells – A North Atlantic Chronicle. This is the first
work from the Faroe Islands ever to receive a major international publishing
contract, so it is the most important news of Faroese literature in our times.
This work is receiving its English-language premiere in the pages of Trafika Europe.
This issue also features photos from across Europe
by US-based photographer Mark Chester.
