“B. W. Powe’s The Charge is a much-needed intervention in our moment of cultural opening troubled by opposing forces seeking to halt the movement. Ranging from ancient literature and history to space travel, ecological crises, science fiction movies, and the current political turmoil around the globe, this powerful book discloses interconnections among all of these phenomena. Having drunk from the same visionary wells as William Blake, Simone Weil, Teilhard de Chardin, Bob Dylan, and the prophet Isaiah, Powe offers lightning flashes of insight into our disturbing and exhilarating times.”


Jerry Harp, author of Spirit Under Construction




“If Marshall McLuhan were to rejoin us today, he would be stunned at how much has changed so quickly. …Your Membrane text does the update exactly as he would. …The integration of text with art work made me think at first of (what is for me) the best of Arthur Kroker… The art work by Marshall Soules is nothing short of amazing. He’s a sort of Wyndham Lewis, Marc Chagall, and Picasso rolled into one. …The text is masterly, always marrying precision and elegance with phrases such as ‘ripples of sensibility,’ “global epic of extremism,” the notion of pattern recognition flipping into paranoia… Well done!”


W. Terrence Gordon, author of Marshall McLuhan: Escape into Understanding, dramatist and essayist




“It takes a visionary to be able to make sense of the blur of the world whirling ever faster around us. The drawn images add another dimension to the words. …It takes a non-linear poetic mind to describe the new normal of our existence. …Loved the way this tied in Rimbaud and the ‘cusp artists.’


Diane Keating, poet, novelist, author of The Crying Out




“This is a great piece of work: a really timely synthesis of much of B.W.P’s thinking over the years. And the Cuban street-art plays at so many levels (I particularly like the irony).”


Jim Berry, artist and entrepreneur



The Charge is by far the best thing Powe´s written since McLuhan and Frye, sweeping in scope, finely tuned, and appropriate in style, deeply provocative in thought."

Wilfred Cude, author of The PhD Trap and Weapons of Mass Disruption
