On My Mind by Circa24

Circa24 chose this pseudonym to isolate her creative works from her technical, writing in zoology.  The many losses experienced during the early days of the HIV pandemic inspired the first book of short stories, Thomas Hardy was an Optimist. Her most recent creative work, Silent Consent, looks at a potential future scenario—a scenario that could come to pass if we waste our one-time inheritance of resources.

A book of short stories focused on the first eras of the HIV pandemic, but not about the pandemic itself. Joe makes his living panhandling; Karen’s mother expects her to give up her life to help her. Jane fights to leave a legacy, and two women struggle between safety and duty as they hear a child abused in the next apartment. The fictional characters drive the story lines in the first collection of vignettes by this author.

There, women were used like horses, pulling heavy equipment. With sheer…

How many slaves do you have?

The first national remembrance of Juneteenth has come and gone in the United States. But, if you thought that slavery ended with the Emancipation Proclamation or with the condemnation of slavery by the United Nations, think again. Mauritania had legal slavery until 1981, and after its abolition, it imposed no penalties for it until 2007.…

Silent Consent (revised edition) retains all the flavor of the original with a a few errors and format and wording changes. The book sprung from the author’s years of teaching ecology and behavioral studies. It is a dystopic look into a world that could happen–a future devoid of high-grade energy, fertile land, and adequate resources to start over. It asks what might happen when we can no longer find enough energy to power our machinery, and it looks toward our past to understand how we might behave in the future. Now, more than ever, the material looms before us, relevant to our world.
