Think you're living in an environmental dystopia?
Wait until we start thawing a frozen planet with pig farts.

That's where the story begins and it doesn't get any less wild. At once ridiculous and chilling, rising surrealist talent Freddy F. Fonseca explores the dark, porky underbelly beneath humanity's seemingly ever-more-virtuous race toward sustainability - and the genius puppet-masters who watch our feeble bamboo-straw-buying attempts and smile, while flattening another rainforest.

Oh yeah, and there's our hero. The last remaining pig on Earth just happened to be blessed with superpowers. Which he would use to avenge the extermination of his species, were he not to get tangled up in an all-too-human web of greed, lust, and indifference.

The anarchic and ambitious Heart of Swine has breath-taking scope and a wry, not totally resigned smile. It incautiously pulls away the covers to reveal how half-assed humanity's efforts to clean up after itself have been. It's funny and coarse, sure, but the writer is deadly serious. The epic failures we continue to see around the world on a personal and political level are taken to frightening lengths. And reading Heart of Swine is like a Rorschach test for one's outlook on the future - although it's hard to think, especially after finishing this book, that everything's going to be just fine.

Customer reviews

"Really enjoyed reading Heart of swine. It's an eye-opening experience towards our contemporary society. Written in a great literary work exposing our societies vices and follies." Amazon.com

"Exaggerated and yet so believable. Themes and characters are great and reflect much of the modern concerns. I particularly liked the commentary, so hard and honest. The narrative is fluid and makes me never want to stop reading it." Amazon.com

The safest way to view the Middle East in general and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, in particular, is from an airplane window during a landing approach.

Once out of the plane, you no longer have the confines of the cockpit to isolate your senses. Depending on the weather and time of the year, you immediately feel the searing heat on your skin, the blinding glare of the sun reflected from the ground hits your eyes, and the sweetish smell of petroleum permeating in the air greets your nose. But as soon as you overcome the initial shocks, you will begin to feast on the opulent sights in the modern miracle in the desert. Millions of international brain and brawn labored many years to build, develop, and maintain the multimillion-dollar modern structures and facilities in Saudi Arabia. When the Kingdom came into the windfall of petroleum dollars, its tiny population can never cope with the vast modernization plan of the government calling for super large building projects. The only solution is to import millions of brilliant minds and muscles to execute magnificent dreams into reality. The ultra-religious Kingdom has always maintained a preference for fellow Muslims like Egypt, Sudan, Syria, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Indonesia, and Bangladesh but also graciously opened its doors to hardworking non-Muslims. Workers from Europe, the USA, South Korea, Thailand, the Philippines, India, Japan, and China flooded the country. The multinational talents are a huge blessing to the Kingdom, spurring its development into dizzying heights. The whole situation has also developed into a mutually beneficial activity because the Kingdom has ultimately provided precious income to the millions of its workers. It has shared its blessings.

This book is only a microcosm of the much larger picture of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its heroic workers!

"Insightful. This is an honest description of the life of a Filipino worker as experienced by the author. It is insightful of the adversities that most Filipino workers have to overcome specially those on foreign assignments specifically in Saudi Arabia. The sacrifice needed in the noble pursuit of better wages to support their families is palpable. The book is a testament to the human spirit of perseverance and resilience.

Eddie Donnally has lived a most unusual life.

He is the only professional horse jockey to have won an Eclipse Award for Newspaper Writing and one who has been a television show producer, racing show host, certified fund raiser, ordained minister and hospital and hospice chaplain.

A jockey for 19-years, he rode in over 10,000 races at 54 tracks, winning an estimated 1,200.

He shares his life as a checkered jockey, his sibling sexual trauma and battles with a crack cocaine addiction and same sex promiscuity, and the supernatural jail cell miracle in 1996 that put him in full time ministry since.

Eddie Donnally is a frequent speaker in churches, recovery conferences, rehab centers, and prisons.

"Every grown woman, regardless of background or circumstance, can find some of her own stories within the pages of this book. This poetry is undeniably therapeutic for the woman who has seen a lot and done a lot." amazon.com

J. Autherine’s inaugural collection of poems and inspiration is a love offering to strong, vulnerable, badass women who lead with their hearts, love deeply and sometimes fall hard.  

Wild Heart, Peaceful Soul is a deep, gritty, raw look at the thrill of loving unconditionally, as well as the mental and physical toll that it takes when peace and harmony are lost in the process.   
The author draws inspirations from her own journey spanning 30 years, and also dives deeply into the vulnerable hearts of women globally, including her experience growing up in Jamaica. 
She captures the pain and struggle of women who love deeply and pour into others without first filling their own jars.   
A reoccurring theme is reclaiming your heart in order to live and love harmoniously.  
Chapter 1, Wild Heart, takes the reader on a journey of self discovery — being an empath in a sometimes harsh world, feeling broken after losing love, not feeling good enough to be loved, facing rejection and abandonment, and navigating life with a heart that just wants to love unconditionally. 
The second chapter, Peaceful Soul, is an empowering meditation on the peace that comes with reclaiming your heart — finding strength in the love and support of sister friends, practicing self-love while responsibly loving others, and finding joy in loving those that are worthy of our love. 

Wild Heart, Peaceful Soul is a patchwork of vulnerability, truth and empowerment for everyone who loves deeply.

"The book was well written and very enjoyable. You can learn a lot about Alaska Native cultures in Southeast Alaska from this book." amazon.com
"I bought this book because I know the author. I love to read about our history of the Tlingit people. Great book." amazon.com

Clayton’s biggest fear becomes his realty. He sees his culture fading like autumn leaves falling to the earth with no hope of rejuvenating itself like it does when spring arrives and everything starts its journey all over again.

Elizabeth, Clayton’s daughter and mother of Jonathon and Richard, is married to Sakarja Skovdahl, who drinks a lot and frequently beats her. She eventually leaves him and moves in with her parents. Clayton takes on the father role for the boys by teaching them how to fish, speak Tlingit, and sing and dance.

When Jonathon goes off to school, Clayton is proud because he knows an education will prove beneficial in addition to his time-honored teachings. Little does he know Jonathan will be punished for speaking the native tongue. When Jonathon returns for the summer to help his grandfather at fish camp, Clayton is surprised when Jonathan no longer has a desire to speak his own language. After explicit orders from his grandfather not to use the motors for fishing, Jonathon uses them anyway.

Cedric Moore moves to Dry Bay looking for work. He fights inner demons that haunt him because of his war experiences. Despite his inner battles, Cedric does good deeds and he likes the Tlingit culture and people. After helping one of her sons, he forms a relationship with Elizabeth, who he passionately loves

A Cobbler’s Tale is an adventure story about Pincus Potasznik, a second-generation Jewish cobbler, born in a small shtetl in the province of Galicia, part of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire. 

In 1910, at the historic height of the massive Eastern European immigration wave to the New World, Pincus decides to leave behind his pregnant wife, and three small children, in order to seek a new life for his family in the burgeoning Lower East Side of Manhattan. On his traumatic voyage across the Atlantic Ocean on the SS Amerika steamship, Pincus meets Jakob Adler, a young man running from an accidental murder of a notorious crime boss in Warsaw. 

The story also explores the challenges of pregnant Clara Potasznik as she does her best to protect her family, while the bloodiest battles of World War I explode within miles of her family home, a small village called Krzywcza. Moshe, the young son of Pincus and Clara Potasznik, discovers his divine ability to foretell dire events, and to offer real comfort those in pain, taking the reader into the wisdom and mystery surrounding the ancient Jewish mysticism, known as Kabbalah. 

A Cobbler’s Tale is a story of a family’s survival against tremendous odds.

The African Piper of Harlem involves a family of Nigerian descent and how they deal with living in Harlem, New York. 

"As always, Zeena Nackerdien brings her unique perspective on American life. Her penetrating yet gentle critique enables all readers, regardless of their background or experience, to empathize with her characters and the trials they face. An absorbing read and excellent way to spend an afternoon!" amazon.com
Read the full Readers' Favorite 5-star review here

Neither fish nor fowl, every immigrant threads the needle between being one of "us" versus one of "them." The plot is both a fantasy and an exercise in exploring ways in which recent African immigrants and African-Americans recognize and embrace each other's cultural differences.

In Harlem, the mecca of black America, immigrants of every complexion live side by side with the descendants of slaves. The story begins with a description of how bullies belittle the twins, Bilal and Nawaal, who are of Nigerian descent. Grandpa Abram and their mother, Ola, do not know how to help the children. 

Out of nowhere, a mysterious figure, Abekepi appears, and this fantastic piper offers to rid the neighborhood of bullies for a crazy reward. What follows is an intriguing, and sometimes unsettling, weaving of social themes, in which a supernatural being intervenes to turn the struggles of a single mother and her twins into triumph.

Everything that we hear surrounding motherhood portrays a beautiful, nurturing, and a powerful bond that cannot be broken by any human being, or length of time. Nonetheless, this idealism is not the case for all mothers.
From her earliest memories at four years old, Callie Flinn began to notice that her mother differed greatly from the others around her.
Callie’s school friends had mums who were kind, warm, and selfless in nature, whereas Callie’s mother, Donna Flinn, was only able to mimic this behaviour in public. In private, Donna’s true and sinister identity would regularly emerge. Instead of providing care and an abundance of love for her daughter, Donna began to carry out wilful acts of spite, which included using violence, severe neglect, and intolerance towards her preschool child. Callie is parentified; she is used by her own mother and heavily burdened by Donna’s erratic and volatile emotional outbursts. Callie is unable to process the world around her and therefore, she begins to feel unsafe on a daily basis; Callie lives, day to day; in flight mode. She does not receive comfort from her mother; however, the expectation is for her, a small child, to provide this for Donna. Slowly, Callie begins to hear the same message repeated loud and clear, that her feelings do not matter and that she is to put the needs of everyone else around her first.
The situation would only become worst for Callie, as her mother and father split and Donna begins a new relationship with Allan.

My Conception

True story
My grandmother sent my mother to buy a stick of butter. On her way some young boys were standing around, and one boy said I like you and started walking down the road. After that she returned home with the butter and in nine months I was born.
Back in the 40’s & 50’s, young girls had sex with a boy over and over without using condom and in nine months a baby is born. During that time, mothers’ were too young to take care of the baby and the family had to raise the baby, and this is the same thing that happened to my mother; she had two daughters before she got married. 
The same things are going on today with young people, and so many babies are in Foster homes.
I learned we don’t know how we came into this world, but I thank God I am here. What a blessing to feel so special; I thank God, my mother and that young black man who is my father. My mother had a second child by the same young man. What happen and the reason she was born into this world? I guess to have a play mate. I know my Mother and Father loved me and my sister. 
Years later my mother got married and had many other children. As time passed I had 7 brothers and one more sister. I know my real mother loved us both, and I know God loves us all.

This is the story of a young black girl who grew up in Savannah, Georgia at the time of segregation. She moved to California to make a better life for herself. She talks about her battle with cancer, abuse and her love for the Lord. Frances is eighty-one years young and loving it.

"This book was very well written. For those looking for historic/science fiction, Steve Sloane is an amazing writer. I highly recommend it." amazon.com

Late Victorian London, 1899. Seigfried Wallace, a lowly clerk at insurance company Radcliffe House, is invited by Mr. James Spall, a friend of his from upper management, to The Gaiety, a private gentlemen’s club in Knightsbridge for an evening’s social engagement. With reluctance, Seigfried accepts. Soon after, James disappears and Seigfried sets about trying to correlate the possibility of his friend’s absence, with the club. A second, and somewhat mysterious invite to a Christmas Eve gathering at the club draws Seigfried closer to the reasons for James’ disappearance, as well as engaging him in the club’s most secret purposes-those made privy to only its highest, distinguished members.
