BWW Reviews: ALICE'S ANTHEM Gets Wonderland Even More Drugged UpBWW Reviews: ALICE'S ANTHEM Gets Wonderland Even More Drugged Up
by Jay Irwin - Sep 28, 2014

I'm all for taking classic stories and turning them on their head as long as you have something interesting to say about them. A new twist on the mythology can be quite fun. And Copious Love's "Alice in Wonderland" musical retelling, "Alice's Anthem", certainly has that with their dark and macabre modern thrill ride through Wonderland. But as much as it has going for it, it has almost as much going against it (which is not difficult in its three hour run time) as many of the scenes, like Alice, tend to lose their way and go beyond what the story wants to tell and into what felt like insider jokes and self indulgences.

Andrew Shecktor Releases 'Centralia PA, Devils Fire' Historical Fiction NovelAndrew Shecktor Releases 'Centralia PA, Devils Fire' Historical Fiction Novel
by BWW News Desk - Aug 25, 2014

Andrew Shecktor, Berwick, PA resident and author and former creative writing instructor, is proud to announce the final release of his first novel 'Centralia PA, Devils Fire,' published by and available at Amazon.com. Visit the website at www.centraliapadevilsfire.com. It all began with a preacher scorned, beat down by a band of brutal, ruthless Mollie Maguires in 1869. The town - Centralia, PA. Just the previous year the town founder, Alexander Rae, was brutally murdered by the same gang. With nothing but time on his hands while recovering from his injuries, he conjured a scheme to exact revenge, and placed a curse on the town that one day none shall remain but the St. Ignatius Roman Catholic Church. Inspired by previous visits to the town and ultimately by a trip to the now deserted town, bought out by the state following an unstoppable mine fire that began in 1962, the author decided to write a fitting eulogy to the town. The novel is a fictional accounting based on fact and metaphorically presents the mine owners and industrialists as Satanical manifestations in need of exorcism. A cross between the style of 'The Wizard of Oz' and 'Alice in Wonderland' the short novel is fun to read and also educational. General historical facts have been added to set the tone for each chapter, and great attention has been given to historical accuracy of things such as weather conditions, dates, astronomical data and historical figures. The author comments, 'In then end it will leave you wondering if there was indeed a conspiracy by the mine companies to take over the town by eminent domain.' Today, only a few residents remain, having won an uphill legal battle to remain in the town. The town zip code has been retired, and when the remaining residents move or die, the town will be turned over to the state. And then... there is the old man with the pipe... but you will have to read the book to learn more about him. (more...)
