According to legend and Taoist practice, Liuhebafa is considered to be a recipe for internal alchemy and even immortality. In addition to poems, Ride Backwards on Dragon contains 30 pages of endnotes decoding the Taoist metaphysical symbolism of the 66 ancient titles – information never before published in English.  The book was a finalist for Canada’s Gerald Lampert Award.

    The date is past. Can I buy from you a copy of Kamesan’s World Haiku Anthology on War, Violence and Human Rights Violations? Please reply to

      Hi Bob. I emailed a reply to you. But just so others reading this will know as well… Yes, the indiegogo campaign for funding this book is over now. The book isn ‘t actually out yet. But it should be by April. When it is available, I will be able to direct you (and everyone) to the website where the book can be purchased. But the website isn’t up yet. I myself won’t have any extra copies for sale,. The publisher/editor/organizer, the poet named Kamesan, will be handling all of that via his website.

      kim 🙂
