AOF Member Writings
Presented for your reading pleasure are the very words of members and friends of AOF -- essays, poetry, musings, protestations, idealized hopes and fervent dreams. Almost needless to say, these represent the opinions of the several writers, not of AOF. Individual authors retain copyright. Contact them, or in some cases their estates or assigns, if you wish to reproduce any of this material.
If you are a friend or member of AOF, and have writings of your own you would like to see posted here, contact the Webmistress via the Contact page.
Finally, this is a small archive. If you enjoy such creative work, please visit The Eloquent Atheist, where more awaits you.
John Hodges, born 1952, was raised Episcopalian, went nuts over Ayn Rand at age 17, received a B.A. in Economics, followed a Guru for five years, returned to atheism at age 30, and since then has read a lot of philosophy, mostly philosophy of ethics. He also reads about history, nature and science, but does not own a TV. That he grew up reading science fiction and fantasy, and watching "B" movies, may explain much. His topic is the attitudes of atheists toward religion.
"Honesty will give you all the truth there is," John writes, "and no more."
Stacy M. Reese writes under the pen-name Kindred. Her topics are bone marrow donation and a philosophical fantasy, "Thinker's Anonymous."
Liubov, in Ukranian, means love. During his time in Sacramento, the poems and character of Anatole Lubovich touched many of us deeply. His personal story came to a close in November 2005. Since then Do Gentry, Anatole's partner and administrator of his estate, has brught a number of his poems to local publications. With her permission, AOF presents a selection of Anatole's poems for our readership and the world at large. Enjoy his work, and remember.
