Steven R. Drennon was born in Lawton, OK, where he first started writing poetry at the age of 15. Since then he has collected nearly one thousand poems that he has written over the years. Those poems have recently been released as six separate volumes of poetry. He has also added two collections which include additional poems that had never been previously published, resulting in all of his poetry being available to the public for the first time ever.

In addition to this, Steven published an epic fantasy novel titled "Rise of the Raven" in the spring of 2011. Another fantasy novel titled "Three for Avadar" was released in early summer of 2011. Steven more recently released two suspense novellas titled "Desperate Love" and "Shattered Vows" in 2012, and he expects to release another in 2013.

Currently Steven lives in San Antonio, TX.

comment What does it mean that the early supreme court “gave themselves” the power of judicial review?
This question is being locked temporarily. Vector and Semaphore, you guys have turned the comments into a discussion. Take it up in chat, but don't use the comments.

comment How was the first official geographical border established in Europe?
In its current form, this question is not appropriate for this site. It is basically asking for a list of sources, which is taboo. I believe this has the potential to be a good question, so if someone would like to try to edit it, we can consider reopening.

comment What was the fate of most SS members after World War II?
But this site is not a forum for discussing or debating historical matters or topics. It is a question and answer site: period. If the comments start devolving into discussion or debate again, then they will be deleted and if necessary, so will the question.

comment Iranian casualties during the first world war (1917-1919)?
I deleted a number of comments because they pertained to the question before it was edited or to other matters, such as whether or not to reopen the question.

comment What was the fate of most SS members after World War II?
I have deleted all the comments from the question as well as the answer because there was too much discussion centered around the way the question was originally posted. I believe the new wording for the question makes it much more suitable and have therefore decided not to close it. If the rest of the community disagrees then you may continue with the vote to close.

comment Historically, have African nations had a higher proportion of coups than nations on other continents?
This wasn't my question. I only edited the title to make it fit the question better.

comment What role did the Eastern Roman Empire play in the fall of the Western Roman Empire?
@Sally, I believe that your original question was worded in such a way as to invite speculation and opinion, and that contributed to it being closed. I like your follow-up: "Was the Eastern Roman Empire able to help the Western Roman Empire around the time of their collapse (they were definitely wealthier and more populated, but did they have enough manpower and resources to significantly make a difference)?" This is a question that can definitely be answered objectively.

comment How independent were the Eastern European countries from the Soviet Union?
Actually, it might be better to split this up into multiple questions. As it stands right now, it is simply too broad in scope.

comment Where can I find financial data for the first world war?
In its current form, this question is not a good fit for this site. Any question that solicits the creation of a list of source is unacceptable. The individual questions you gave as examples, on the other hand, would be a perfect fit. I have to close this question, but I would strongly suggest you ask the other questions separately.

comment Could Columbus have suspected the New World lay on his path to India?
Sorry, but I don't see any way that this question could be answered without speculating. I agree that it would be a better fit for Skeptics.SE.

comment In the US Civil War, what factors contributed to the Union having such a numerical advantage over the Confederacy?
@Tom Au - My concern now is that the change has made the question one that is more likely to be answered subjectively. The only way I can see it being answered is with specualtion, rather than facts. It's almost like saying "If the south had tanks and bazookas, could they have won?" I'm osrry, but I still don't see it as a good fit.

comment What options India had other than getting its independence from Britain?
I'm trying to see how the edits have made it any better, but I'm still having a difficult time seeing any answer as anything but subjective. The question itself poses several suggesting on what could have happened, which still seems a little leading. In the end, I just don't feel confident that the question truly has an objective answer that isn't driven from speculation. Convince me otherwise and I'll gladly change it. !

comment Recommended order for reading Horatio Hornblower series?
Sorry, but your question does not really fit here. I am going to have to close it, but if you decide to modify it so that it fits our format better, I will consider reopening it.

comment How many non-partisan (independent) legislature members were in the USA compared to the USSR?
This question is being locked because of the excessive number of comments. If you guys want to have a discussion, take it to the chat room. I have also deleted some of the more volatile comments that had devolved into personal attacks. Future comments of that nature will result in the individuals being blocked or accounts suspended.

comment Does (or did) any monarchy have a limited length of tenure?
Guys, if you are going to carry on a debate or discussion, then you need to take it to the chat room. You can leave a message there and then the other person can respond at their convenience, just as you have been doing here. The comments section is not intended for this use. All other comments were deleted, and if you start it up again, future comments will also be deleted.

comment What kind of armor did the soldiers use in pre-gunpowder Southeast Asia?
From what I read, it appears to be a lack of materials and expertise more than anything else. They didn't appear to have much expertise in metalworking, and I would assume that their exposure to European style armor was very limited.

comment When did people start caring for the handicapped?
The question itself seems fine, but the commentary in the body of the message seems to be a problem. It really needs to be cleaned up and edited in the form of a true question.

comment How did Israel win the Six-Day War?
I'm sure that the Egyptians and the Syrians were under the impression that the Israelis were getting the same political pressure and as a result wouldn't attack. From what I remember of that period, I also don't think the Egyptians or Syrians had much respect for or fear of the Israeli military at that time.
