Blackened White Brian W Foster makes his entrance into the literary world with Blackened White , a first person account of life, love, faith, and pain In this collection of poems, essays, and short stories, Foster offers a series of brutally honest, often humorous, and profoundly ironic writings chronicling a journey into his own human condition Using his unique style of prose and storytelling, we observe a young man wrestling with his faith in the midst of relationships, addictions, sexuality and the unending, relentless desire to be whole Author and Grammy award winning singer Kevin Max says Blackened White Prods the flesh with electrodes of hyper emotion, dangerous subtlety and purposefully mannered archaism Likening it to an Open House flier , Foster invites the reader along the

While I don t share most details in Brian s life that would have contributed to this work, I do feel like we share some barebones focal points I felt a kinship with Brian after reading this work Whether the poems and stories are autobiographical, or conjured from imagination and inspiration, they spoke to me at a deep level I highly recommend this book, and find myself wishing Brian wrote and publishedDon t mistake this as stalker talk it s simply high praise for a guy who deserves it, never seeks it, and often seems to feel like he s unworthy of it Don t forget to love each other Creepy

realize how short this book was until it arrived in the mail Oh well, I forgive you Brian I had been wanting to read this ever since I met Brian W Foster at Gen Con in 2017, and so I picked it up so I could read it before Gen Con 2018, just in case I ran into him, so I could maybe get him to sign it and be able to talk to him about it The book contains poetry prose essays and they were really

spelling and or grammar mistakes because he self published this and did not hire an editor The first third of the book has some pretty bad punctuation grammar fails, but the content of these entries had a way of drawing you in and then occasionally hitting you with a pretty deep couple of lines I read this quickly, and now I wonder why Foster has not released any other books It would be interesting to see how his style and content has changed in the past almost decade I was a fan of Brian and his wit and snarky attitude from Talks Machina but evenso now for his sincerity and vulnerability in this book And he s publishing another one pretty soon which I m really excited about The very first poem in the book Night Stand is probably my favorite, followed very closely by Spring and the last poem If The Medicine Fails.Brian really knows how to lay that last line.PS There s another Brian W Foster that s written some fantasy books and a Brian Foster I was a fan of Brian
