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 Are the Ramayana and Mahabharatha exaggerated stories or pure fiction?
Let's please try to focus the answers on the following question: "Do we have corroborative archaeological evidence to say that they are not pure fiction?" If this turns into a bunch of specualtion and opinion then we will have to close the question.

comment Has the accounting services industry ever been disrupted in the U.S.?
This question is only marginally related to history. On top of that, it seems to be soliciting lists, which is not what we try to do. On top of that, it's pretty broad overall. If you would like to try to modify it, we can keep it here. Otherwise I think I'd be inclined to go along with the votes to close it.

comment Is there any history magazine like “Foreign Policy” for politics?
While it is true that this question does not fit our format, it seems to me that it would be useful to have such information. Because of that, I am going to convert this to a community wiki, which means we can provide answers that are more of a list of recommendations. I also edited it to make it more of a History topic because I feel like that was the intention.

comment How do ideologies tend to fare after the regime upholding them falls apart?
Ros, your question here is way too broad and way too subjective. We strive to have questions that can be clearly answered without speculation, opinion, or discussion. If you can, please modify it to something that meets that criteria. Otherwise we may have to close it.

comment Was the US Navy larger in 1917, and if so, why?
I almost wish I could give you two votes. Very impressive answer!

comment What was the first spy agency?
If you could provide a more specific reference that would be more helpful. As it is, your answer is really too broad.

comment What is the purpose of the bridge to the Russkiy island?
The problem is that there is no way to provide a single, factual answer. One can only speculate on the reasons for why this was built, and that in turn would solicit discussion, opinion, or debate. This question does not fit the SE guidelines.

comment History of the Levant and Israel - 2000 BCE to the bronze age collapse - where to find info?
I am converting this to a community wikki. Since the question si really asking for a list of resources rather than an actual answer to a question, it will fit better as a wikki entry.

comment Has a country ever used an insurance company as a shield when the economy goes down?
If you would like to edit this to make it a more complete question, I will be happy to consider reopening it.

comment What options India had other than getting its independence from Britain?
I have looked at this several times, and I have decided to close this question. First of all, it is not a truly valid question as much as a solicitation of opinion. Any answer to this is going to be subjective in nature. Also, I agree with the comment that this appears to be an effort to "guide" the answer to a pre-determined conclusion. If you would like to edit it to make it a valid question, I will consider reopening.

comment What Factors Have Led to the Duration of US Copyrights Continuously Increasing?
Your description and definition of Copyright is completely and totally wrong, and this doesn't answer the question.

comment What Factors Have Led to the Duration of US Copyrights Continuously Increasing?
What you are missing is that you could never buy the book in the first place unless I, as the Copyright owner, granted permission for the book to be published. You now own the book, but NOT the Copyright. You can do what you want with the book, but NOT the content. You can't write your own books using my characters or set in my imaginary world unless I grant you permission or license those rights to you. This is a difference between proprietary and physical ownership, very different.

comment What Factors Have Led to the Duration of US Copyrights Continuously Increasing?
You are incorrect. A Copyright DOES give the creator exclusive rights in determining how their work is used and also guarantees they receive compensation, should they desire it. A Copyright IS recognized as a tangible property and CAN be assigned to heirs or others at the discretion of the creator. Anyone who inherits a Copyright is entitled to the exact same compensation and privileges as the original Copyright holder.

comment What Factors Have Led to the Duration of US Copyrights Continuously Increasing?
The example you gave is not at all correct. It describes the process by which corporations maintain ownership of a creative work through Trademarks. It is NOT Copyright privileges that allow them to maintain this control, it is Trademark ownership.

comment What Factors Have Led to the Duration of US Copyrights Continuously Increasing?
Sorry, but you have really blurred the lines between Copyright and Trademarks. A Copyright DOES identify ownersip in a tangible property. Also, I had to give a downvote because your answer crosses the line between answering and providing opinion.

comment Book on history of international trade
I am going to convert this to a community wiki. I can see some relevance in the request, but it doesn't truly fit our question/answer model. As Luke stated, asking for recommendations that result in a list or ongoing discussions doesn't really fit within our guidelines.

If you are going to downvote an answer, at least be kind enough to provide a justification for doing so.

comment Why did the United States enter World War I?
I downvoted this because it doesn't really gave a substantive answer. If you would care to provide some supporting information to further your case, I'll be happy to reverse it.

If you feel that an answer is WRONG or does not address the question, then vote it down and leave a comment. You guys need to STOP using these comments for personal attacks or discussions. If you feel the need to do this, then take it to the CHAT ROOM!
