I became quite adventurous. During the next few weeks I want to publish my first book in English. It's going to be a small ebook containing a short essay. Don't be afraid, I worked together with a native translator.
The title is "Demeter and the Commons of Being". It is a speculative essay against the loss of ancestry and the arrogation of property. The essay describes how wild grasses became the first ancient cereals in a process which was triggered by the habits of stone aged man. It shows that progress is not only powered by invention but also by tradition. The conclusion is that we all stand on the shoulders of giants no matter what we do and that culture and what we simply call nature is a commons belonging to us all. The German version is available at https://www.amazon.de/dp/B008G4Z2I2.
I am looking
- - for bloggers who would like to write a review about the ebook,
- for forums, mailinglists, facebook groups about literature and/or philosophy where I can announce the book
- for online magazines which might publish a note about the book
- for any tips on how I can spread the news
