Edward C. Patterson Releases The Road to Grafenwöhr

3/7/2011 9:29:00 AM

by Edward C. Patterson


PRESS RELEASE: Ed Patterson published his 1tth Book

Press Release: http://www.prlog.org/11356872-edward-patterson-releases-the-road-to-grafenwhr-cold-war-fantasy.html

On March 2nd, 2011, Edward C. Patterson, author, released his 17th published work — the novel, The Road to Grafenwöhr, a Cold War fantasy. (ISBN 1460973860) 372 pages

http://www.amazon.com/dp/1460973860 , also widely available in eBook for the Kindle http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004QGYBKE.

PFC Quincy Summerson begins his military adventure in 1968 in Bavaria realizing that his presence stirs the paradigm - the thin line between twilight and night. His hyperactive imagination gets the better of him, and soon the world enlists him for a predestined purpose - to travel on the road to Grafenwoehr, where the woods is alive with myth and folk lore.

Set in a tense Cold War atmosphere during both the invasion of Czechoslovakia and the Vietnam call to arms, The Road to Grafenwöhr is one man's emotional journey to square nature's justice with humankind's disregard for it. It’s a summons for a least likely and reluctant champion. But those called to service rarely choose where they serve. They just answer it, ripening to their purpose. For Quincy Summerson, a hero’s life is not his choice, but can he ignore the call? Can he stay off the road once the twilight snares him?

The authors states: "The Road of Grafenwöhr owes its existence principally to my own good fortune to be stationed in Germany and that bustling Bavarian town between 1967-68. Although the work is far from autobiographical, most of the events of a historic and pictorial nature (and even some used for the fantasy) are recounted from my direct experiences. Such is the web we weave. "

It is dedicated to the memory of his father, Donald P. Patterson of the USS Thomas Jefferson, a combat veteran of six WWII invasions — "and also to the memory  of all the brave heroes who — from Bastogne to Peleliu — have made our world possible through their sacrifice."

Edward C. Patterson has been writing novels, short fiction, poetry and drama his entire life, always seeking the emotional core of any story he tells. With his eighth novel, The Jade Owl, he combines an imaginative touch with his life long devotion to China and its history. He has earned an MA in Chinese History from Brooklyn College with further postgraduate work at Columbia University. A native of Brooklyn, NY, he has spent four decades as a soldier in the corporate world gaining insight into the human condition. He won the 2000 New Jersey Minority Achievement Award for his work in corporate diversity. Blending world travel experiences with a passion for story telling, his adventures continue as he works to permeate his reader's souls from an indelible wellspring.

His novel No Irish Need Apply was named Book of the Month for June 2009 by Booz Allen Hamilton’s Diversity Reading Organization. His Novel The Jade Owl was a finalist for The 2009 Rainbow Awards.

Published Novels by Edward C. Patterson include No Irish Need Apply, Bobby's Trace, Cutting the Cheese, Surviving an American Gulag, Turning Idolater, Look Away Silence, Oh, Dainty Triolet, The Road to Grafenwöhr, The Jade Owl (Jade Owl Legacy Series Book I), The Third Peregrination (Jade Owl Legacy Series Book II), The Dragon’s Pool (Jade Owl Legacy Series Book III), The People’s Treasure (Jade Owl Legacy Series Book IV)  and Southern Swallow Series (Book I – The Academician and Book II – The Nan Tu).

Coming soon: Southern Swallow Series (Book III – Swan Cloud; Book IV – The House of Green Waters; Book V — Vagrants Hollow), Belmundus and Green Folly.

Look also for In the Shadow of Her Hem (Jade Owl Legacy Series Book V) and A Reader’s Guide to Author’s Jargon and Other Ravings from the Blogosphere.
