The President's Parasite and Other Stories (Book) - 1/25/2007 9:14:46 AM
Weird but wonderful. Almost makes me wish I had a tapeworm.

Russian Wolves (Book) - 12/11/2005 9:22:25 AM
This novel sounds amazing and extremely intense.

Lucifer's Wedding (Book) - 11/10/2001 2:00:40 AM
“Unless we learn about the true power of darkness, none of us shall be spared.” -James Musgrave, Lucifer’s Wedding Evil is not cured, only held at bay. The devil has found his bride in Miriam Weinstein, a detective with psychic powers working in the paranormal psychology department of the San Diego Police Department. Miriam becomes an unwitting accomplice in her own demise as she is pursued by the forces of evil. Miriam is the chosen bride of the devil himself! She is quickly drawn into a dark world of evil from which escape is only an illusion. Miriam’s only salvation (and the world’s too) comes with the aid of a rabbi. Jim Musgrave’s novel Lucifer’s Wedding is a scary and at times disturbing portrait of the darker sides of all of us. Filled with the sights and characters of an author well acquainted with the city of San Diego, the reader traverses through a maze of evil surrounding Miriam as she attempts (with help from a few friends) to save herself. Mr. Musgrave has written a frightening, complex and disturbing book of the darker sides of life, the occult and the unknown recesses of our minds. Miriam becomes involved in the play of good and evil, experiencing first hand the powers of evil. This fast paced novel is packed with multiple characters moving in and out, making it challenging to keep up with. But anyone who wants a look into how evil is cunning, and waits for its chosen moments, taking advantage of the weak and disheartened, only to once again be held at bay by forces willing to do what they must, relying on their faith to survive, will enjoy this tale.

Sins of Darkness (Book) - 6/22/2001 3:10:16 PM
Seems like a long time ago that I read this. Great psychological thriller where fact and fiction are twisting throughout.

Russian Wolves (Book) - 6/18/2001 6:25:20 PM
Ah yes, the bloodlust that hides within! Incredible writing! RD

The President's Parasite (Short Story) - 10/12/2007 10:27:44 AM
Wow! Original, to say the least. I'll remember this tale for a long time. You sure gave Kafka a run for his money!

A Betting Man (Short Story) - 1/31/2007 2:14:20 PM
Great story! Very well written with good characterization and subtle anticipation built in that is rewarded nicely with a satisfying conclusion. Thank you. Carrol Fix

MacArthur's Last Stand (Short Story) - 4/24/2006 8:56:03 AM
This composition held my attention on to the end, and took me on a flight to the clouds of imagination of the second reading. "MacArthur's Last Stand" brings a sample of many creative minds ~ from Herodotus to Freud, and all concerning with life-living atmosphere ~ giving the reader full imagery and motion. It is a work of art, whose contents inspire, instruct and stimulate the creative mind. In gratitude and reverent admiration. Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

The President's Parasite (Short Story) - 4/20/2006 1:56:13 PM
"The President's Parasite" This is an outstanding literary jewel; it is symbololistical, impressionistic, wit, surreal, romantic, poetic-social and scientific-philosophical. The author did present an intellectual banquet to be digested by any political reality’s seeker and hungry guests. As I was reading "The President's Parasite" for the third time the turbine of my imagination was ignited and a vision showed me – Marcus Tullius Cicero reading "The President's Parasite" before a large audience in which I saw Ivan Petrovich Pavlov, Karl Marx, Louis Pasteur, Franz Kafka, Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche and Niccolo Machiavelli, among many minds’ titans and their peers of yesteryears. Yes, this composition made me take a cosmological trip through my psychobiological memory; and made me see clearly that we can count that we still have BRAINPOWER, – despite the fact that the Members of our Congress can’t read the CONSTITUTION; – the Legal Counsels of the Government can’t read the HOLY BOOK OF OUR COUNTRY, THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA either. If they could, the Congress wouldn’t ALLOW the Government to LEASE land in Communist Country to build and operate CONCENTRATION CAMP. I thank the author of "The President's Parasite" for adding value to the JUSTICE’S VOICE, and for being a FIREFLY in the Darkness of our POLITICAL ERA. In gratitude and reverent admiration, Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

Writing with the Inner Camera (Article) - 4/24/2006 8:19:05 AM
Time is proving that there is an inner artistic creative magic in Your penpower, and a didactical aroma in the breath of Your words. Reading Your works, short stories, poems and articles is like attending to a motion-picture review. I have enjoyed the reading of "Writing with the Inner Camera", which adds a new chapter of true creative prose to the literary history of the twenty-first century. Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

Writing with the Inner Camera (Article) - 8/19/2001 9:34:03 PM
WOW! It is most unusual to find another writer who perceives the written word as function of the camera within the mind. I rated this a 10 because it provides just that perspective from which all art must flow or else it falls to the paper as only another alphabet. Cheers and chow, Vicki

Gothic Gunshots (Poetry) - 1/2/2008 9:47:11 AM

Wonderful verses. Thank you, DL Mullan

Fixed Income (Poetry) - 4/25/2006 8:23:08 AM
Such marvelous stanzas, that are so excellently expressed! They are all wonderful, but the following expecially touched me! "All that matters is today; and the scream of birth and the gasp of death. And in between, the honey-edged fixed income" "I imagine them kneeling together in a sun that streams through a painted saint, in a multi-colored window," "but it is not you— it is only a saint, and I am kneeling in broken glass." This "Fixed Income" poem is a winner, and a keeper! Thank you!

Sailor Boy (Poetry) - 4/20/2006 2:18:53 PM
SIX DAYS TO BE SIXTY MONTHS - and the memory of the sailor is making foam from waves of humanity on the sea of eternity. I have read the "Sailor Boy" and enjoyed the reading. Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

When a dew of love fell on the tree of wisdom, the bird of grace sung, and this magnificent sample of a true poetic heart was composed...

Sailor Boy (Poetry) - 5/15/2003 4:32:14 PM
"Conincidences? There are none. Only connections." Love your words. The circle and everything having to do with it are my favorite. Circle, zero, nothing, begining, the end, birth, death; everthing is connected. EVERYTHING! Nice poem, Prof. Musgrave!

Sailor Boy (Poetry) - 10/16/2001 6:08:57 PM
