To the Dawn (英语) 平装 – 2005年7月7日
To the Dawn is a seven part epic poem about cosmology, myth, history, and the human adventure. Praise for To the Dawn: "A modern apocalypse. Alber boldly takes on world history interpreting the past and predicting the future." "A tour de force in dramatic robust poetry." "A bright light on the poetry horizon." The paperback edition also contains the first chapter of Alber's satirical novel Alien Sex in Silicon Valley.

Describing Paleolithic communities he writes:
Brothers and sisters, | The awkward grandchildren of long-faces, | Hold each other | In consolation against the thunder voice, | A brother too, | But of the world | Of dream walking solitary ones | Who are of the tribe, | Yet also outside | And even against it- | To be feared for sure. | "Aaaaaaaaaaaaaa!" | The cave bear screams in trance | And his flesh is eaten.
He describes the fast pace of atomic age civilization:
There's no time for that. | No time for a now anymore. | Or anywhere. | They're the same | In Einstein's head | And over Hiroshima. | The patent clerk | Is the butter-thief in disguise, after all. | He gives the | Ancienteternalatom | To small spectacled men | Who put it to plow. | The Japanese cities rose and fell | Like visionary beauty | Crumbling 'neath time's tromp | And the remnant of a reptile's mind.
A large epic with a small price. I have seen signed copies available at mythiceyepress.com. Also, they have links to other books such as Myth & Medium, the collection of Alber's art and essays.
