Yahoo! News - Franco-German 'War Bastards' Speak Out: "PARIS (Reuters) - As a boy Daniel Rouxel slept locked in a chicken coop because his grandmother was so ashamed of his origins -- the love affair of her French daughter with a German army officer in occupied France during World War II.

Like Rouxel, tens of thousands of these half-German children in post-war France were bullied and humiliated by their families, neighbors and teachers. Their mothers faced public abuse as punishment for sleeping with the enemy.
As France gears up to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the June 6 D-Day landings that freed it from the Nazis, a book 'Enfants maudits' ('Cursed Children') confronts it with an unsavoury chapter of its history. "

So Long Been Dreaming: Postcolonial Science Fiction & Fantasy is an anthology of original new stories by leading African, Asian, South Asian, and Aboriginal authors, as well as North American and British writers of colour.

Stories of imagined futures abound in Western writing. Writer and editor Nalo Hopkinson notes that the science fiction/fantasy genre “speaks so much about the experience of being alienated, but contains so little writing by alienated people themselves.” It’s an oversight that Hopkinson and Mehan aim to correct with this anthology.

as submitted by Jeff Brechlin, Potomac Falls

O proud left foot, that ventures quick within
Then soon upon a backward journey lithe.
Anon, once more the gesture, then begin:
Command sinistral pedestal to writhe.

Commence thou then the fervid Hokey-Poke,
A mad gyration, hips in wanton swirl.
To spin! A wilde release from Heavens yoke.
Blessed dervish! Surely canst go, girl.

The Hoke, the poke--banish now thy doubt
Verily, I say, 'tis what it's all about"
