Publisher's Summary

Two visionary epics, one master storyteller! 

Recalling the great oral tradition of Homer and the ancient poets, this masterful performance by the author gazes from heaven to earth, from earth to heaven. 

Angels battle, politicians scheme, prophets conjure miracles among a rich and varied cast of characters, all rendered in exquisite verse and passion outpoured. 

Obama's Dream 

A brotherhood of angels prepares for battle, tears are shed in heaven, and fire leaps from the holy altar. 

Thus the stage is set, a showdown looming that will decide the course of a man's soul and with it, all of humanity. 

This visionary epic leaps through time and space and otherworldly encounter, even to the throne of God. Now, be swept up in its enchantments! 

Elijah 

Ancient Israel, ninth century BC. Jezebel has killed the true prophets of the Lord, and Elijah must flee her wrath. 

But he is not alone. Embraced by a shape-shifting goddess, counseled by a great angel, he is empowered to call down fire from heaven! In the spirit of Dante, Shakespeare, and Homer, this timeless tale takes wing in the poet's pen, the poet's voice! 

At times raunchy yet always reverent, this beautifully choreographed 12-book epic will embrace you in a timeless story of love and danger, wonder and prophecy!

Magnificent!!

I've read the prolific words of Leroy, and have now had the privilege to listen to the words spoken in those gloriously biblical stories. The Epics contains both Elijah and Obama's Dream, both stories that I've read the print and listened to the audio. Leroy brings his magnificent Epic poem to life as he narrates and tells the grand story. I thoroughly enjoyed Leroy's work, and will definitely read and listen to more of his work. He has a grand and unique perspective, and has accomplished a great task of writing an epic poem, which is no small feat. So, taking his narrative (remarkable and mesmerizing voice) and adding it to tell the story was just genius. For Elijah ... "Elijah lies beneath a tree in the desert, praying for death, then falls asleep. He is twice awoken and fed by an angel, who assumes a human form so as not to overwhelm the man of God." Absolutely wonderful and hypnotic narration. And for Obama's Dream ... He has a remarkable writing style and add to it his reading, no, narrative style, and it brings the reader in, as he paints with words, his voice flowing over gently with the narrative song of his words. "Close by Obama’s ear, there sits the fiend, Whispering foul thoughts of evil influence. 3 To overhear and learn what might be gleaned Of wicked schemes one angel’s preference." I look forward to reading (and listening) more by this poetic author.
