Cynthia Joyce Clay was judged to be a computer program on Shakespeare at the First Loebner Prize Competition of The Turing Test-a truly science fictional experience. The Competition was filmed as part of a PBS Scientific Frontiers episode and aired internationally. In addition to living sf, Clay has experience with the thriller genre: she was invited to Russia to deliver her paper, The Application of Vector Theory to Literature and Drama at the international conference "Languages of Science, Languages of Art" and was chased by the KGB. She is an award winning author and her plays have been produced in Massachusetts, New Mexico, and Florida. Cynthia is a contributing editor of The Oestara Anthology of Pagan Poetry which won an Eppie, an international literary prize. Her sf novel, Zollocco, was an Eppie finalist. She likes to write sf and fantasy best.

Dealing with the theater and filmed versions of plays, it concentrates on finding the implied intention of each play, and how to design, direct and act that intent. Originally published by McGraw-Hill in 1967.
Written in two voices, his and hers, and echoing the divine compliment of the Lord and Lady, this book helps magickal practitioners advance in their magickal undertakings.

form of magick strength.
Winner of 2006 Eppie for Poetry
"As a collection, Pagan poetry can hardly get better than this. The contents are sensuous, moving, endearing, stark and intoxicating by turns: occasionally within the same poem!"
--Professor Ronald Hutton, author of The Triumph of the Moon
"Enjoy this collection. I did. And I hope there are more to follow." --Mike Gleason
This book examines what literary and dramatic plotting is--what plot is.
