Atom, proton and electron... the incessant turning of the galaxy... the constant turning of the Earth around the sun... this big glob of dirt and water and wind and fire... polarity and duality... thesis, antithesis and synthesis... murder and sexual intercourse... truth and mendacity... female and male... penis and vagina... I write because I breathe... Why this collection? Because life is absurd, and because all living breathing beings must punch their way out of this suffocating repressive bag called "existence." Art is the great liberator of the soul. Art purifies and quenches. It promotes sweat. It increases the heart beat; it neutralizes the solar plexus. It is the electrical connection between the creature and the creator...
Stark Hunter is my pen name. I was born in Whittier, California in 1952. I have written stories and poems since my teenage years in the 1960's.

All of the above works are available at Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com. I am also an English teacher and a published photographer. I am married with two daughters.
