Starting a Second Promo Series: "Searching for Secrets" for Volume Two, part two

Starting a second sample series for Volume Two, part two, "Searching for Secrets"! Part one's sample series, "Brace for Impact," explored the usage of Gothic poetics (monsters, magic and myth) when making new proletarian histories; part two reverses the arrangement, examining the history of monstrous poetics in two basic modules that future workers can learn from. Volume Two, part one (the Poetry Module) is out now (5/1/2024)!  I wrote a preface for the module along with its debut announcement.  Give that a look; then,  go to my book's 1-page promo to download the latest version of the full module (which will contain additions/corrections the original blog posts will not have)!

"Medicine" is another piece of the module, "Brace for Impact" (2024),  the book sample for my upcoming monster volume (rough ETA, mid-2024) and  of which the  opening section  "Hugging the Alien" is already available on this blog.
