The Vorthon Collection
by Peter J. Martin The Vorthon Collection offers a compilation of poetry that seeks to reach the extreme limits of the readers thoughts. The title combines the words vortex and marathon, invoking the image of the whirling inclusive function of a vortex and the long persistence necessary to complete a marathon. The variety of topics addressed will challenge readers of both liberal and conservative tendencies and will provide entertainment, information, and provocation. Realism and universal life experiences form the basis of the uniquely thought-provoking verses of The Vorthon Collection. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Peter J. Martin is a native of Seattle, Washington, and now resides in California. He is the father of six children and is active in the DAV, VFW Post 85, and AARP. Mr. Martins educational background includes technical studies in radar repair, an associate degree in the social sciences, and a bachelors degree in government and journalism. He has experience in a variety of fields, ranging from electronics and engineering to labor management, advertising, and auto sales. He has also served as a youth football and baseball coach. The author seeks to live his life "the old-fashioned way, while working toward maintaining those same values." (2004, paperback, 42 pages)
