Belfast poet David Atkinson’s second collection of poetry, “Black Eyed Peace.” This collection includes the poem ‘Hunting for the Aurora,’ nominated for the 2015 Pushcart Prize.
In these poems David’s language is both simple and direct. He provides us with a map, with routes leading out into large and small histories, of family life, religion, war and Belfast. His evocations, at times sunny, shaded at others, conjure pictures that we recognise and believe in. Whether dealing with large or domestic themes these poems sparkle with wit, acute observation, truth and love.
“A cracking book once I started reading I couldn’t stop. Had me laughing out loud and welling up at times. This is such a mix of the wry, the affectionate and the hard-hit. David’s poetry is always gritty and poignant, measured and never preachy. Not a beat missed. An outstanding volume”
Black Eyed Peace is available as a free eBook from the author’s website.
Print copies, signed by the author, are also available by emailing the author directly – davidatkinsonblackeyedpeace at hotmail.com

“It’s Only a Bubble: Our Universe and All We Think We Have!” by Dr. Andreas Zachariou is a Philosophical Book that Devats Man’s Inherent Sin.
Strategic Book Publishing & Rights Agency is pleased to announce the release of its newest title It’s Only a Bubble: Our Universe and All We Think We Have! by author Dr. Andreas Zachariou.
Is man inherently sinful?
The new book It’s Only a Bubble says no. The traditional religious idea that man fell from a state of perfection is rejected.
Does God punish or reward humans on the basis of how pleased or angry He is with their degree of obedience?
This book says no. God is perfect and does not think, feel, or act like a man. The author theorizes that man was made by God perfect in the “core field” (the place of perfection), but was simultaneously placed in the realm of “dimensions” (artificial bubbles on the surface of the core field) in an imperfect state, so he must struggle for and earn perfection by his own free decisions and actions.
