New literary anthology takes readers to the far past, the insane present and the unusual future – PR Web


“People have been telling me since I was a little girl that I was supposed to write a book. With plenty of spare time during the pandemic, I took that leap of faith,” Minerva Noiropp states.

“Shifting Sands: ‘My Imagination is my Vibrator and Coffee is the Batteries’” (published by Balboa Press AU) is an anthology whose scope and breadth is as broad as the expanse of the cosmos. There are a variety of sexual encounters, liberally spruced with the magic of multiple dimensions. There are also stories of revenge that lead to liberation. Stories of ancient myths are retooled allowing readers to think that perhaps, the truth is not what they are led to believe.

An excerpt from the poem “The Devil Take Your Soul” reads:

The Devil take your soul.

Hey, the Devil take your soul.

Oh, that always was his goal.

Oh, the Devil take your soul.

“What does this anthology contain between the bindings? Fiction. As for the bindings, these could be virtual or literal in nature. It depends on your preference what format agrees best with your inner essence. Expect a dollop of poetry into my bountiful soup of prose,” Noiropp says. When asked what she wants readers to take away from the book, she answers,” It will take them to the far past, the insane present, the unusual future.”
