  • AWAY FROM HOME SEASON (Huy, a soldier of one of the best Vietnamese divisions joined the 1984-1985 dry season campaign – the most exciting and bloodiest period during the ‘80s – when the war between Vietnamese Army and the Khmer Rouge and its coalitions came to its peak. The borderline then was turbulent with the K5 Plan and many greatest battles of the ten years of war.
After the great battles at the front line, Huy and his comrades returned their base where they stationed near a phum in Phnom Srok District, Battambang and where he experienced new, alien things in his relationship with Khmer people. He got intimate relationships with many Khmer people and fell in love with a young girl who was killed by mine later. Everything seemed to him slowly changed through the bitter love stories of Quan, his superior, with a very beautiful girl, and of his own; through the big and small battles and the death of his comrades and beloved people. Harsh reality soon erased all his illusions, and turned him from a naive idealist into a nihilist. Yet that appeared only on the surface, deep down his heart, there were always very complex feelings and unanswerable questions.
With the main characters just within a 12.7mm machine gun platoon and some Khmer people and just within four-year time, yet Away From Home Season doesn’t only tell you just about the surface of the war but deep down feelings and insights of the soldiers and Khmer people. It deals with the core of the war - the unconsciousness where dreams rise like bubbles from fish in a dark pond where lotus flowers bloom. In the book, War and Love, Atrocity and Humanity, Animosity and Compassion, Gain and Loss, all are presented in their most truthfulness and purity.)[1]Tieusu (talk) 18:27, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

Extended content

grew up connected to her spiritual world through dreams and visions. Her first experience hearing the words, “I love you” was at the age of seven years old through a vision; this left a profound imprint in her soul. She expresses this given love through her creativity - she has written two books. The first book is called, "The Me I Never Was" - a designed matrix of the mind, soul, and spirit embarking on the journey into “Oneness.” Using the creative flow of words through different genres of writing, the pages become alive; the words reaching into your quiet hours, speaking only to you and gently guiding you to a place of peace and acceptance of the innate seed planted into you before your earthly birth. The images on the pages are artistically created to give you vision of the mind and to see beyond the box we have been put in. "The Me I Never Was" is a given gift to all who seeks to live in Truth! It has come to the aid of the seeker in stripping the bandages of bondage! It has come to unchain the lies that have kept your spirit imprisoned to the soul's experiences! “The Me I Never Was” has come through the creative world of writing and art to bring you… Freedom! It strips the garments that have been placed upon you and standing before yourself in the Pure Love of Acceptance!

Francine's second book is a children's book called, "A Girl Named Charity." Young Charity Still has one wish. She longs to be free, just like the guinea hen from her ancestral land of West Africa. She wants to be strong and free to roam the land. Instead, she is a slave, one of many on the Steele plantation in Maryland. It’s the only life she’s ever known.

Growing up before the Emancipation Proclamation becomes law, her world consists of picking cotton, beans, and corn in the hot fields and slopping the pigs. She mourns the death of her mother, survives the influenza running rampant through the slave quarters, endures beatings for her mistakes, and experiences being sold to a new owner. Through it all, Charity dreams of freedom and what it might mean.

"A Girl Named Charity" is based on a true story, this picture book for young children puts a personal face on the history of slavery. It teaches that whatever the circumstances in life—good or bad, joyful or painful—they can be overcome. It’s important to have, hope, faith, and belief in yourself that the spirit within will provide the strength to overcome any obstacle.

Born in Camden, New Jersey and a lifelong resident of New Jersey, Francine has dedicated her life to the world of fine arts, writing and music.

In 2005, she began The Legacy Of Promise program, consisting of an art exhibit, books, music and historical - inspirational speaking. Her passion and promise to her sister Bonita Jean Still Austin - who passed away at the age of 36 years old became her inspiration. As she went around giving presentations she heard the cries of people - "Who will carry our legacy? Where are the young people in all of this? How can we get the next generation involved?" This deeply disturbed her and her creative mind began to flow and she thought, "I wouldn't have to go far to find the answers - we must live by example." Some years back prior to "The Legacy Of Promise" program she asked her sons Bryant and Brandon, "Sons... would you continue your legacy with the gifts and talents you have if anything were to happen to me? And would you like to join me in the message of The Legacy Of Promise?" They found it an honor to support her in their historical legacy with their musical gifts. They have seen and heard about her struggles in life - and along the way they have experienced some of the pain with her. So, they came on board contributing with their musical gifts and became a part of the great tapestry. At this point she felt the strong presence of her forefathers and the grace of Providence instructing her to combine all of their creative gifts together; giving the program a total completion.

Francine says, "We all take part in the great tapestry of life, whether we recognize it or not. As I grow in life I'm finding that we all are struggling in one way or another. Our struggles aren't much different from the days of old - our clothing and technology have evolved, but our desire to live a rich and fulfilled life is the same."

Francine continues to give inspirational lectures throughout the community libraries, schools, churches and senior citizen communities - in hope to bring enlightenment of history through inspirational speaking, books, music and art. The Legacy of Promise has come to fruition passed onto her through her ancestors and The Great Providence.

Her illustrative art work can be found on the cover/illustrations of author Charles L. Blockson book “The Ballad Of The Underground Railroad” - cover and illustrations for Dr. Jacqueline Leonard of Temple University "Culturally Specific Pedagogy in the Mathematics Classroom" - Renaissance oil painting for the dusk jacket of the 2005 revised edition, "The Underground Rail Road" by William Still published by Plexus Publishing and was critique by The Princeton Info., comparing the art work to the great master Diego Rivera's work. The most recent Renaissance oil was a portrait painting for Dr. Mike Murdock, founder of The Wisdom Center Fort Worth, Texas.]Malogical7 (talk) 03:14, 16 May 2015 (UTC)ref></ref> >>

- Simple Triple Standard ( - published 2015 under the "rp" imprint; sub titled: "The Real Official, Almost True Backstory for Modern Commercial Radio"; the novel is a nostalgic look back at radio in the 1970s, from the eyes of a young reporter who lives vicariously through stories in the news while searching for himself in reality

L*Seligmann - German-Jewish writer; author of Rubinstein's Auction







- combining up-and-coming publishers in literature with mainstream entertainers ([503]) musicians ([504]), television personalities and comedians from around the country offered their time to this one-of-a-kind event for the self-publishers who lacked mainstream marketing ([505]). It was branded "Come as stranger's ... leave as family!" The mantra was "Wagfest it baby!" Means to make it do what it do. No fear, no apologies, no excuses, no exceptions.
-Wagfest toured many states beginning in 2007 through 2010, twice a year; locations included New Jersey, Seattle (two times) ([506]), Cincinnati, Atlanta ([507]) and the last one in Shreveport, Lousiana
- all work done by volunteers who flew in from around the country ([508])
- The volunteers wanted to use Wagner's name on event; Wager was against it fearing it would make people concentrate more on his infamous name and checkered past than the purpose itself; he was out numbered and his colleague and poet Felecia Trotter of Indiana insisted it bear his name. They took on the publishing machines with their message of letting the little man eat per say. Wagfest did not survive the machine as a documentary is sleighted to shed light on its fast rise and its faster downfall
- Wagner is quoted as saying, "character, rapport in his working relationships were paramount. That is where you will find the best of efforts. You may not get your results but you will become better together because of it."
- Wagfest was the lifeline to the now countless self-publishers creating events in their own backyards and home towns in attempt to establish and build their own lanes, branding themselves as as aspiring independent entreprenuers and businessmen and women

NNDB names

Here is a list of people (mainly novelists) who have stub entries in (NNDB). The NNDB is of questionable reliability and should not be quoted as a source in Wikipedia and independent assessments will have to be made regarding notability:

Authors (other than poets, dramatists and fiction writers)[edit]

Fictional character[edit]

  • Billy Caspar - child character featured in Barry Hines' classic Angry Young Man novel, A Kestrel for a Knave. One of the most notable literary characters of the 1960s, I am shocked that there is not already a Wikipedia page. Should be created with all possible briskness.
  • Merricat Blackwood - a fictional adolescent featured in Shirley Jackson's masterpiece We Have Always Lived in the Castle. She has been listed as the third greatest literary adolescent of all time, only falling to Holden Caulfield and Esther Greenwood. She is known for her memorable yet peculiar branch of somewhat 'poetic' madness, and her strikingly loving relationship with her sister Constance, one of the two members in the family that she remains with after a famous literary poisoning at the dinner table of the rest of her family using amanita phalloides. The novel is best known for her, and includes many questions about who murdered the family: only at the end of Chapter Nine does she reveal that she was the killer. She has been noted for her taunting style of writing, her hidings from the reader, and her various ways of attempting to kill the family's visitor, the kleptomaniac Cousin Charles. The most obvious method is her burning down the house, in an attempt to kill Cousin Charles. This plan, however, does not succeed, much to the glee of the villagers, who are met earlier in the story, when Merricat visits the village to get groceries, and first hints at her homicidal tendencies in wishing that she could visit the store, whilst watching their bodies mangle in pain on the floor. Merricat then visits the nearly burnt up house with Constance, and they barricade the doors, and live without human companionship for the rest of their lives. This has been noted by literary critics as being a 'fairy tale' ending, a point which is furthered by the villagers' various attempts to 'make amends' for the taunting that they gave Merricat when she visited the village about her sister being a murderer, which was believed at that time, owing to Constance having been acquitted by the law court for the murder previously. Countless literary essays have been made on Constance, all of which give explanations for her behavior: particular study has been given to the first paragraph, which has been observed be one literary critic as having a magnetic field on the reader, so that we cannot let go, and to the rhyme created by the villagers to tease Merricat (' Merricat, said Connie, would you like a cup of tea? Oh no Connie, you'll poison me! Merricat said Connie, would you like to go to sleep? Down in the boneyard ten feet deep!) In several occasions, literary critics, such as Joyce Carol Oates and Paul Theroux have implied that she is the most emotionally complex and greatest of all literary teenagers, and, ultimately, all literary children.
  • Hamilton Berger should redirect to Hamilton Burger. Searching WP for Hamilton Berger returns nothing relevant, but it DOES prove that Berger is a fairly common surname, often pronounced in English exactly like Burger. Especially since Bergen is a much more common name than Burgen, searching for Hamilton Berger is a natural mistake that currently gets the reader nowhere.

Fictional locations[edit]

  • Teolan - fictional country in the Taulia universe
  • Pyrrhia - fictional continent in the Wings of Fire novels

Literature-related awards[edit]

  • Micro Award - annual juried award, not a contest; given to the best story of under 1,000 words published in English during a calendar year; private money funds the award; editors nominate work just as they do for the Pushcart Prize and similar honors

Literary movements and styles[edit]


  • agricultural theory
  • Bosnian Medieval literature - history of literature in the territory of today Bosnia and Herzegovina focusing on the medieval literature. There already exists such an article, but only in Bosnian and, apparently, Russian, but no translations to either English or any other languages. bs:Bosanska srednjovjekovna književnost
  • chi-chu - literary style mentioned in Wikipedia article about the Yellow Emperor involving assembling writing from fragments of various sources (I think) - unable to find any wiki or other search engine articles on it, nor any online books a bout it - even trying different spelling variants and combinations, though I realise this can subtly change meaning in the translation from Chinese to English.
  • childhood in literature, children in literature, childhood account - whatever the title of the article, I do think an article on depictions of childhood in literature is requestable; there is one on the Swedish-language Wikipedia (sv:Barndomsskildring)
  • combinatory literature - e.g., the Oulipo
  • culinary mystery -
  • dolphin and whale spot - term; (on the cranium) quoted by David Foster Wallace in Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip with David Foster Wallace by David Lipsky. Pg. 295. "'And she said that there were these various chakras and one of the big ones was what she called the spout hole, at the very top of your cranium' [He demonstrates where it is, the dolphin and whale spot.]".
  • E-fiction - relatively-recent phenomenon is the commercial (for-profit) "self-publication" of strictly- or primarily-electronic fiction under the banner of longtime "E-tailers" such as Amazon. This is NOT a vanity press as the author does not pay for the privilege of publication: they invest only their time and effort, and the "publisher" is merely a retailer who takes a percent-of-sale, not an up-front fee (in effect, the authors are paying for the publisher's "retail channel").
- It might be likened to an author mill in some ways, but due to the low costs all round (and the lack of any guaranteed "vanity market" of the authors friends/family), it appears to be a different phenomenon. This is LIKE Web fiction, but usually offered via Amazon, Lulu, or the like, typically for low entry price (e.g. 99¢ per chapter for a novel, etc). Authors who are popular on fiction forums sometimes make the jump to professional writers (albeit nontraditionally so) in this way. The topic is too-briefly mentioned as a minor element of the existing article Self-publishing#Electronic_.28E-book.29_Publishing, but appears to merit its own entry, as modern electronic means have enabled a sea-change in the older concept of "self-publishing." [564]; [565]; [566]; [567]
- The term "E-fiction" (that I've chosen) is perhaps overly-broad for the topic (the phrase connotes both commercial and free fiction) AND overly-narrow (the same model might apply to non-fiction); I note that "e-pub" is already in use, largely in the non-fiction realm. "E-fiction" might be useful as an umbrella for linking all these related topics. No other phrase has occured to me, that might concisely describe this phenomenon (and therefore be apt for titling an article).
  • epic tale - a type of a story along with tall tales, fables, fairy tales, etc.
  • faster-than-light travel in fiction - There should be a Wikipedia page on the many different speculations about faster-than-light travel in fiction. It is a plot item in countless books and movies, many enormously popular. The faster-than-light page on Wikipedia is mainly scientific (links to several works of fiction where faster-than-light is a plot point is functionally an afterthought and far from comprehensive). The interstellar travel in fiction Wikipedia page mentions faster-than-light tech lightly and has too few links. The term is mentioned on dozens of pages within Wikipedia, generally a discussion of a single body of work. There is substantial cross-pollination of ideas about FTL tech in fiction between authors, so the article should include both listings and abstractions of the speculated technologies of various authors in various works. It should include a sort-table allowing correlations for the different ways various authors address it.
