About the Book

Disturbing, challenging, surrealist, controversial are but a few words that reel around in my mind about this book... which will shock and stretch the reader's mind in many directions... not a light-hearted pick-and-choose collection of poems... if it's something mind-stretching and challenging you are looking for, then this book achieves that on several levels.

– David Taub

Rick Smith explores, confronts and questions the unexplained with pained honesty... expresses with his poetry profound lessons and insights with multidimensional metaphors. His candor shows true courage.

– Joan Carra

Like passing through all the heights and depths of a great mountain range at lightspeed... it hits the reader like a machine gun blasting bullets of blood and guts observation and relentless social commentary through the writer's experience... it reads like a versified new gospel for the 21st century.

– Ruth Solomon

A scintilating wake-up call!!! This remarkable book is both complex and simple, direct and subtle, and always thought-provoking. Dip into this and take away what you choose... you WILL go away enriched by the experience... fun, terrifying, funny, sweet, and heart-touching... Rick Smith deserves a much wider audience.

About the Author

Since 1991, Rick has been ‘downloading’ extraterrestrial information, turning it into visual and literary expressions throughout his work as an artist, poet and lecturer. His exploration into this realm began with acrylics. As time went on, the natural evolution of this exploration led him down the path of a mixed-media artist, writer and lecturer. In Legions Of Light / Armies Of Darkness he exposes his own intimate, enlightening and horrific experiences, scenarios and confrontations for the first time. As a teacher of the masses and a relentless truth machine, Rick Smith knows his calling in life as he redeems the Abduction Phenomenon away from falsehood, delivering unto the viewer a message of catalystic knowledge. Ranging in areas of politics, religion, domestic violence and sociological evolution, the far reaching implications set forth by the artist’s work become startling and hard hitting.
