Listen to Breakfast in Fur Part 2 >>

Sample ImagePoet, Publisher and Editor of Howling Dog Press , Michael Annis, discussed the life and times of the poet Gregory Greyhawk and the collection Wailing in Heaven/Whistling in Hell. I broadcast readings of Greyhawk's works by the master himself - preserved before his untimely death on March 25, 2011.


Listen to Tribute to Gregory Greyhawk >>

Wailing in Heaven/Whistling in Hell".... How estranged the human race is from itself, and how we pollute one another with easy conjecture, lazy attempts at self-realization, faulty philosophies and contrived self-importances are the recurring themes that conjoin the landscapes of Gregory Greyhawk's Wailing in Heaven, Whistling in Hell. Just perhaps the realms of Heaven and Hell, like the S-curve that separates light from dark in the Taoist yin-yang, are not so far removed from one another, in fact, like little eyes, may occasionally intrude into each other's territory. We are our own myths. We are our own iconoclasts. We are Vietnam and Iraq and Afghanistan, 20 years after the fact. Gregory Greyhawk thunders through our mental/emotional territory as if he had been handed its keys by Pancho Villa, Geronimo, or Charlemagne. Yet, his is a message which is neither bound by time and circumstance, nor the dictates of religion or politics, but which molds and clarifies destiny--his own, and that which is shared by a fractured and dissipated human race. In Greyhawk's world, we are the predators, we are the hunted, and now we may be honest about it. Wyandot/ Huron/ French-Canadian, hockey pro, Marine Corps sniper in Vietnam, rail jumper, 3rd mate on the Great Lakes and the high seas, Greyhawk strikes dead center with multi-lingual precision and profound intellectual veracity."

Check out some of Greyhawk's works in the Howling Dog Press Publication "From Hive This Mind" (see 118 - 123) >>
