Winter Flowers
Book #2 of 4 of the poetry book series:
Season of Fours

Romantic naive ignorance. This is the book that finds you eating ice cream or chugging beers trying not to cry over the relationship that just broke up. You can't believe it. You dated, slept together, went to restaurants and movies. Had sex. Went to concerts together. Had sex. You enjoyed watching television shows together--then he/she dumped you. It was perfect... but it only lasted 3 weeks.

History of Zen from A to Z
Including the Meaning of Life, Creation of Heaven, Hell, Humans and Earth...

Co-written by Satan? Richard says he'll be glad to take full credit. Either way, it is a new view of human history and the history of our entire universe.

This unusual version of history starts with God alone, and ends with the creation of Zen Buddhism by Bodhidharma, with Satan alongside. The Garden of Eden, creation of Heaven, and the Tower of Babel are included in Saten's stories.

The AntiChrist
A poetic novel by Richard Del Connor

The book, History of Zen from A to Z, provided Coyote new information about these biblical stories from a different perspective provided by Archangel Saten. (He told Coyote to spell his name differently since he was not the true author of the works attributed to "Satan," which were written by mortals--not him.) This new information made Coyote's prior knowledge obsolete, or different. Rather than rewrite this book to match up with his new understandings of Heaven, Hell, Adam, Eve, and the Garden Of Eden, he left this book the way it was originally written.
