Observations Short of Reason
ISBN: 1413730353

PublishAmerica. 2004

The writings within, such as they are, are whimsical, sometimes naughty, often irreverent pieces formulated by Herr Irwin’s very own peculiar idiosyncracies. As such, they are meant only to amuse.Be that as it may, the author (in consideration of those who prefer a broader spectrum in subject matter and style) has intermixed among the more humorous poems a few rare bits of serious, morose musings for the enjoyment of the truly sick mind.The reader will find this book a true slice of life, although one wonders whose life and who’s doing the slicing.

The Adventures of Tylor Bear and Mana
ISBN: 1413755801

PublishAmerica. 2004
