‘The Outcast’ A short story By Greg Hoey It is the year of 2014 and the Perth Arts Festival has just begun its annual Writers fest at the University of WA.

Letters to the Editor of Cthulhu Sex Magazine
Price: $4.99 USD. Words: 81,900. Language: English. Published: September 25, 2019 by Crossroad Press. Categories: Nonfiction » Literary criticism » Science Fiction & Fantasy
These various writings from both the virtual and material world seem to hint at a darkness that is more horrible than we can imagine. Perhaps it has already overtaken us, as some of the writings seem to suggest, and our minds are so clouded that we do not realize it for what it is. How did we let this accursed publishing house exist? There used to be a magazine called Cthulhu Sex. Or was there?
Soul Cries: In Black & White and Shades of Gray
Price: $10.00 USD. Words: 34,670. Language: English. Published: September 8, 2019. Categories: Nonfiction » Inspiration » Personal inspiration, Nonfiction » Literary criticism » American / African American
Soul Cries is a literary collection of one native son's reflections on living while black in America. A psalm of the afflictions endured by the black body, and of the resilience of black folks’ souls bathed in the blood, sweat and tears of their ancestors—and still tormented on this the quadricentennial of their arrival as slaves upon American shores. Timely. Poetic. Soul-stirring. Unforgettable.
診斷莎士比亞 李爾王 第一場
Price: $5.64 USD. Words: 3,480. Language: Chinese (traditional). Published: August 20, 2019. Categories: Nonfiction » Literary criticism » Shakespeare
精神科醫生的工作對醫生本身沒有益處。每天在分辨一個人究竟有精神病與否,但卻對生命的本質和價值無從稽考。以為一切也可以有診斷工具作為計算,但自己的生活可能還不夠病人幸福。 《李爾王》是莎士比亞四大悲劇之一。要知道悲劇有一個前設,就是主角的本身,是幸福而不是痛苦,是富裕而不是貧窮,是高貴而不是下賤。祇不過因為性格上的一些缺陷,或者生命上一些錯誤的抉擇,人生軌跡一直向下螺旋,拾級而下,成為警世的悲劇。 閱讀悲劇,可以參考主角的前驅之鑒。細讀悲劇,更可品味人生,學問人情世故。這是精神科的診斷指南之中尋找不到的。 《診斷莎士比亞——李爾王》於網上連載,現已來到第二場。雖然,小鳥醫生儘量把每一段獨立成章,讓最新加入的讀者能夠瞭解。但畢竟每一篇文章都是連貫,沒有前因,新讀者也難以投入。故此先把第一場39篇文章結集成書,讓新的讀者可以適應,舊的讀者可以回味。 希望大家喜歡《診斷莎士比亞——李爾王》
