Reviews for The Abyss Gazes Also by Wolfgang Carstens:

The Abyss Gazes Also is brutal—full of brutal honesty, beautiful brutality, and even brutally sentimental. No holds barred poetry about cancer, relationships, the masks we wear, and the children we raise. Wolf does not shy away from the truth, no matter how ugly, no matter how brutal.” —Mark Givens

The Abyss Gazes Also is a series of Zen parables, but not traditional Zen, this is Nietzschean Zen, Western Zen, existential Zen, Zen noir. These parables are Trickster Coyote howling from the dark side of the moon. These parables combine myth with everyday life. Carstens is a brilliant poet, master storyteller, and superb creator of myths.” —Tony Moffeit

    Some people are gifted with everything and do nothing. Deb has done so much with so many obstacles in her way. She is the definition of resilient. An inspiring read.

    I have known Deb for more than 30 years and she never ceased to inspire me. A talented writer, artist and photographer, and unrepentant animal lover, her story is stirring and motivating!

    Primal Power The Unripe Apple was given to me at my mother's memorial. I loved fantasy movies, but a book in that genre had never been my choice. Major changes were happening in my life and I needed an escape so I gave it a try. To my surprise I couldn't put it down! The book had mystery, magic, fear, love, friendship, joy, strength, courage, and I loved it! It seems laced with pearls of wisdom and I find myself rereading parts of it and always finding more insights. The characters within this book resonated with the strength within my own soul and have given me the courage to move forward, thank-you!

    I read the story with my 3 year old grand daughter and we both very much enjoyed it. Beautiful illustrations too. Review by Hannah (3 yrs)...."It was good. I liked the girl in the pink sweater."

    No one, especially a young child should have to deal with the consequences of an accidental gun shot. At nine years old, the author of this well written memoir was robbed of a youth, most of us take for granted.
    Hospitalized miles from family and their farm, she woke and was told because of a severed spinal cord she would never walk again.
    This is an inspiring story of determination and bravery, and how they shaped her as a person.
    How she never gave up on her dream to own horses, ride, and to live on a farm again. How her love and ability for training dogs enhanced her life with many special companions that also served a purpose.
    Reading this proves animals can make life worth living.
