 Life and Death on the Bluffs
A Community Journal
Paul Druecke

"A journal, a novel, but mostly a journal: entries cryptic and profound looped to create a fabric with recurring characters and repeated themes, notably the precious eternal interplay between land and life realized in a luminous piece of real estate on Milwaukee's East Side."
-- John Gurda

Life and Death on the Bluffs offers a birds eye view of 12,000 years of history on the southwest corner of one of the Great Lakes. Written from multiple perspectives, and shifting eras of habitation, the book is an unflinching look at “community.”

The Sound and the Horn
by Nicholas Frank

Like many of its real-life counterparts throughout the post-industrial American Midwest, the fictional northwestern Wisconsin town of Eau Seche has seen better days. Its inhabitants vie over what’s left of their fading economic viability, dependent on a state university to bring annual rounds of new inhabitants and their pocket money. A central and singular event pulls together the town’s separate citizens and goals in a moment of ringing clarity. But the thing with events is that they can generate an almost endless number of viewpoints about what actually happened, along with the resultant competing agendas. In the novella The Sound of the Horn, author Nicholas Frank’s first published work of fiction, we witness a town momentarily awakened. Following the demands of the daily round, will it simply go back to sleep? Can transformation back into what something was before be considered change?

The Last Days of John Budgen Jr.
by Claire Readig and Paul Druecke

The Last Days of John Budgen Jr. transcribes the blog of the recently deceased John Budgen Jr. The story, told in five installments, was conceived as a printed publication, the first four sections of which were distributed free of charge in the midwest and beyond. Dr. Carol Sklenicka writes in praise of Chapter One, "And who but Druecke would unearth the speculation that James Joyce would have thrived as an author of spam?" Geri Mateceli writes, "The trajectory of the Last Days swerves around obvious questions. It meanders through doubts and certainties with the fickleness of a shadow at twilight." This book completes the project by including the fifth and final chapter along with an epilogue.
