E-book Publisher Releases a Timely Collection of Poetry

A Vietnam vet’s passionate and insightful expression of the tragedies experienced, the bonds forged, the horror of war, and the strength of the human heart, will be available in digital format on January 1, 2006 from DigitalPulp Publishing (www. dppstore. com).

Palm Springs, CA (PRWEB) December 10, 2005

DigitalPulp Publishing (www. digitalpulppublishing. com) is pleased to announce that it will publish author Patrick Stafford’s collection of 100 poems about the Vietnam War experience, “Asian Darkness”, under the Byte It Press imprint on March 31, 2006. The scheduled date of release will be January 1, 2006 under the ISBN number 0-9763083-1-2, and will be available for purchase at www. dppstore. com.

The eBook, “Asian Darkness,” portrays what Stafford calls a “seemingly endless war that dominated the American psyche and landscape during the nation’s most turbulent years.” The stark contrast between his elegant language and the dark subject matter brings into clear relief the horror of war and the humanity of those involved.

“This collection offers a multifaceted window on the political, social and personal changes brought about by the Vietnam War,” says Genene Miller Coté, CEO of DigitalPulp Publishing. “Enough time has passed for us to examine this period with all of its subtlety and complexity”

“If there is a thesis or overall theme to ‘Asian Darkness,’” Stafford says, “it is simply that war is hell, there is no substitute for victory and that those who gave in part or whole ‘the last full measure of devotion’ should not ever be forgotten’.”

Stafford served as a Marine in South Vietnam in the 1970s. He lives in Grants Pass, Oregon with his novelist father, Elsan Stafford. He is the author of two other published collections of poetry: “The Cycle of Life” and “Homage to a Princess.” During his 34 year career, Stafford’s poems and other works have appeared in more than 40 publications. These include: Healthcare Traveler Magazine, AccessLife. com, IQ Magazine and Neighborhood America.
