As essence, literary critic Terry White concluding upon reviewing several Blum books:
The author is prolific in the sciences, literature and philosophy (and is) the most versatile of scholars and humanists writing today.
For Old Tom, Young Tom: selected by Biography (a learned journal)
among "the best biography published in 1984." (Nov. 1985).
Critic and English Professor Terry White says of Cornelius Bishop of Antioch, Roman Syria, 128
held me rapt an extraordinary gift for painting a tumultuous and chaotic era fascinating. making the reader be there alive in an era of momentous transition. Magnificently done(a) magnum opus.
He describe an earlier work as brilliant, witty, enlightening well crafted a writer prolific in the sciences, literature and philosophy concluding that the author is the most versatile of scholars and humanists writing today compares with Graham Greene. Prof. G Simson, founder and editor of Biography, the Journal, is, in Cornelius reminded of Umberto Eco in aesthetic and style evocative symbolism.
Of Cornelius, Bishop, Sweden's outstanding humanist, writer, professional serving advocate disadvantaged youth, winner of one of Sweden's oldest, most prestigious prizes, the Allmanna Barnhussets Stora Pris, S. Forsling writes, It is a novel written by a poet. Every word has its color. Every sentence has its rhythm. It is a beautiful book. I will read it as a poem. I will take my time, and it will be a time full of joy
Reviewers have spoken of echoes of Melville and Hawthorne, in this strikingly original author. Steinbeck authority Lazarus applauds the authors gifts of imagination, talent and style. Television and screen writer C. Larson, says of one novel, a beautiful, strong, poetic swing, The Times Literary Supplement, in a front page review of his book , Health and Healing in Rural Greece , states of it the best sociological investigation of Greek mores ever written clear, objective, insightful about the socio-religious.
He is co author of The Dangerous Hour, an internationally regarded work on Greek folklore . Its Foreword by Prince Peter of Greece and Denmark says (his) treatment of ...the irrational in the Greek psyche (is) thoroughmost important arresting. Respecting his The Medical School (under the pen name, G P (for Galen Paracelsus) Hosmer, one reviewer called it a new kind of science fiction by the Edgar Allen Poe of modern medicine whereas another reviewer, describing its focus on magical science, and technological black magic, said of it, the creation of a wonderfully witty, diabolically academic, deliciously nasty mind.

Old Man! (Sully, rightly forlorn, seeks to come to grips with old age, but the Devil himself must be joined to achieve good times . Poor devil, he's getting old too, facing his own demise. Aesops dog, Beazley plays the cynic as old men romp in cinematic fantasy. But it takes bits and pieces of lives shaped as tales retold at the neighborhood tavern (door to the cinema and whore house in the back room) to allow trust, joy in memories affirming the person integral heir to his own past, the "we have done this after all and therefore are, will be, and were" Even so, that his young wife has set in place Sully's tombstone makes a fellow uneasy; did she put both dates on it?
Executive Action (after many years held back, a tale of truth here strongly embelished with fiction, about an invitation to head an Executive assassination team, and warning of being "destroyed" be it told. The better story requires that fiction to entertain, and allow comforting distance, The art of it is in maintaining essences, We are left, as too often so, with history, surprise disbelief, uncertainty. Where oh where is trust?
scheduled: The Jealous Moon The Endymion legend realized in the ruins of modern Eraklion in Turkey. Endymion's burial place. A shipboard romance, but with two females are in love with him, Selene the more exciting and demandng. Even so, Cambridge vain, Endymion is unfaithful. Selene, is she yet a godess denied lasting mortal love? And so? .

- Comment on CVs
- We all know these are best, polished foot forward, documents used for job applications, or to give to folks introducing us for speeches. Knowing wives ho hum them.
- I suppose some of us hand them out to prospective in-laws or creditors. I have never seen an honest CV, defined as one which tells the less or fully unsuccessful events in lives, mine here no exception. We strive for greatness, if only on a paper which itself chronicles the illusions of those who have failed its achievement. A CV is an impersonal things. it does not reveal the misery side of professional life, nor does it touch on any reality of ones social, familial, emotional, health, spiritual experiences etc
- Upon request: positions offered and not taken, positions in hand but disappearing, bigger fish that got away, major firings etc .
Our CV s are shiny masks of the idealized vocational self. This one, true to that form, does not report on jobs applied for and not received, firings, books or grant applications submitted and rejected, book reviews adverse, etc etc. Perhaps in a competitive job world, we dare not expose the failure side. Or is it sheer ego we polish? Protection against the vulnerabilities so many conceal? We do not ordinarily talk about the might-have-been, those potentially life-changing chances that we missed or turned away from. CV s are probably not often just sheer fabrication, ID either stolen or invented, but are surely limited as to completeness. Respecting the limits of the conventional CV, worse if one professionally prepared, a life's cosmetologist doing that, the best foot forward does not show the other one, bruised if not bleeding, dragging behind. Understandably.
