E-Review of fiction, education, science,
current events, essays, book reviews, poetry and Anthroposophy

Number 26 - May 2003

Nevermore, Paul Gaugin

The subject of the war with Iraq continues this month in "Editor's Page" and "Current Events", the latter with articles by a Spanish journalist and Argentina's foremost living writer, Ernesto Sábato.

Interviews with Paul Bowles - by Gaither Stewart, whose book of stories, some of which originally appeared here, has just been published in print. To order: http://order.windriverpress.com Also the Joel Wendt interview continues, this time by SCR readers.

Rudolf Steiner's lecture cycle on Karma comes next, followed by essays by Steve Talbott and Joe Tyson.

A new serialized book appears this issue: The "Free World" Robert Zimmer imagines, one without money that is, could make us happy that we're broke. "Jack Robinson" gets more complicated.

Our discovery, Mike Ingles, contributes another story. This one is about some young American hunters who find themselves hunting different game in a country suspiciously like Iraq.   

We have often enjoyed Bobby Matherne's book reviews here under the Southern Cross - so we thought you might like what hehas to say about the movies - old and new - he recently saw. By the way, if you haven't seen "Chicago" yet, this review could make you change your mind about going.

We've been neglecting poetry lately, so to make up for it a little, there are two poems, one shorty by Alan Jackson and the famous "Kubla Khan" by S. T. Coleridge. More next issue.

If you would like to participate in the SCR Email discussion list, where readers freely comment on articles, essays and stories that have appeared in SCR, as well as the topics in general, just click on the link below and send a blank email to subscribe. The list has been very active lately, ranging over philosophy, politics, Iraq (of course) and other topics. And no one has walked out in a rage.

Until sometime in May, you can find us under the Southern Cross constellation in the Traslasierra Valley, Province of Córdoba, Argentina. Visitors always welcome. Just follow the sign that reads:
La Cruz del Sur.

Meanwhile, you may want to click on the "Support SRC"  link  below in the cellar to see how you can help us carry the  admitedly light but real burden of keeping Southern Cross Review afloat.
