My publisher, Fomite Press, asked me to provide for their website a recording of an excerpt from my work that relates to a particular calendar date or event.  I thought I might as well also post it here.  My trilogy, In Dante’s Wake, is a retelling of the Divine Comedy as if it were happening to me.  It takes place in August 2005, the time of Hurricane Katrina.  The first two volumes, To Join the Lost (corresponding to Dante’s Inferno) and Among the Lost (corresponding to Dante’s Purgatorio) have been published by Fomite.  You can purchase them here.  In this excerpt from Volume 3, presently a work in progress, I am standing with Dante and some others on a beach in paradise at dawn, looking out across the ocean.  Dante is talking.
