'Nolo Segundo is the pen name of retired teacher, L.J. Carber, 73, who in the past 4 years has

had poems published online/in print in over 30 literary magazines in the US, UK, Canada,

Romania, and India. A few months a trade publisher released a 118 pp. paperback book of 60 of

his poems under his pen name and the title, The Enormity of Existence-- a title chosen to reflect

his awareness for the past 50 years that he has a consciousness which predates birth and survives

death. He became aware of this, his immortal soul, when he had a near-death experience whilst

almost drowning in a Vermont river at 24. Before then he had been a nihilistic-materialist,

believing only matter is real in the Universe; now he knows the problem is not that life is

meaningless but that there is so much meaning that even at best we can only grasp a bit of the Great Mystery,

which some call God. Many of his poems seek out and try to express a sense of this endless 'More'.

A recovering economics professor, Steve Slavin earns a living writing math and economic books.

Five volumes of his short stories have been published over the last six years, but he expects that

the pace will slow.
