James Campion has a new book -'Trailing Jesus'
All of us here at The
Desk, and key members of the troop at Fort
Vernon, are pleased, and little relieved - because there is nothing more
annoying than an author in the final stages of completing a book - to
announce that the final manuscript for jcs third book is whisking
to print this week. The six-year odyssey to be titled, "Trailing
is due for release by Christmas.
Compiled using the original journal entries made when jc spent the spring
of 1996 in Israel walking mystical landscapes draped in the pall of cultural
and religious violence, it is a true story of two thousand years of spiritual
revolution and an inspired dissection of western civilizations most
Whether you hail from the Judeo-Christian ethic, have a working
knowledge of Biblical history or are fascinated by the blind aggression
currently being perpetuated by nations in the Middle East, you will enjoy
"Trailing Jesus", which, much like jcs first two books,
Jersey" and "Fear No Art" exudes an irreverent honesty
and ferocity that has

locations to be announced soon. If you are interested in pre-ordering

published by MW Enterprises is currently available in paperback. The complete
essay entitled, "Resurrections in Babes Clothing" appears in
this collection of fine poetry, asides and essays from members of the

was corruptible and nothing could be considered sacred as a result. This
gave us a false sense of freedom as American kids. We loved the protection
of slipping the noose and pointing fingers at the fallen hippies, the
nouveau riche and the bohemian madness that rendered the playing field

conventional sense. After all, there was too much dawn left to go."
