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 Why did the US, Britain, France, Denmark and Sweden vote against the UN resolution that condemned Nazism and SS glorification?
We need to refrain from the ongoing discussions regarding the answers to this question. Please use the chat room for ongoing discussions. This question is only borderline in regards to the SE guidelines because it leaves open the possibility for opinion in giving an answer. If we get another answer that borders on opinion, I will have to lock or possibly even close this question.

comment literature about colonialism
I am converting this to a communit wiki. It has true historical merit, but it really doesn't ask a question that has one clearly defined answer.

comment Looking for a book about Haile Selassie's rise to power
Please modify this question to aske for something specific to be answered. Any question that solicits sources, lists, discussion, or opinion are not appropriate for this site. I don't disagree that this is a pertinent topic for history, but if you choose to leave this in its current form it will be converted to a community wiki.

comment Is there any documentation that indicates the Aztecs were as violent as they are made out?
I modified this question to make it more suitable for the site. The alternative, given the way it was worded, was to outright delete it, but I felt that the base question meritted consideration.

comment Explosive Ordinance Yield Over History
Could you please clarify your question? Are you asking about the yield of explosive devices over time, or the effectiveness of firearms in controlling crowds throughout time? Explosive ordnance would not be used for crowd control (normally), so the two seem to be at odds with one another. Please clean it up to be more specific or break it out into two separate questions.

comment Did any of the 50 Destroyers swapped for bases with Great Britain in 1940 sink any Axis military vessels?
Here is a link to another question which I just converted to a community wiki. Most of the answers provide links to openlibrary.org, which in turn provides links to a number of vendors. I think this is a better way of handling these types of situations. history.stackexchange.com/q/1623/85

comment Resources on the History of African Civilization
I appreciate the links to openlibrary.org rather than linking to a sepcific vendor. Also, I am converting this to a community wiki since it really doesn't fit our question guidelines. Since the information is relevant and of interest to the community, I feel the wiki would be a better fit.

@E1Suave - You make a good point, but SE is about providing information, not sales references. If someone refers to a specific book that might have newer revisions, then that should be included in the answer. This can be done without providing a link to purchase the book. The main point is that SE does not want to be seen promoting one vendor over another.

Just for future reference, if you actually own this book, it would be helpful if you could give a specific example from the book itself. This answer as it stands is not very complete and would benefit greatly from such an example.

I tend to agree that it isn't appropriate to link to a commercial vendor. While I can appreciate the intention to provide easier access to a more complete accounting of the information, I'm pretty confident that anyone could find the actual book themselves.

Sorry, but since this question was so easily answered on wikipedia, I am going to close it. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you'll consider posting other questions in the future.

This type of question doesn't really fit our format, but rather than close it, I am going to convert it to a community wikki entry. I think that this is something that may be helpful to others who might visit our site.

If you are going to give a posting a downvote, at least have the decency to explain why!

@zefciu - I am going to close this question for now because it is too broad and general. If you would like to reword it and give it a more narrow focus, I'll be happy to conisder reopening it.

@Tom Au, sorry I missed your question, but I don't really know the answer. I don't believe you lose the downvotes, which I agree is unfortunate! :)

I am going through our questions to make sure they are less subjective and fit more appropriately into our guidelines.

comment Please provide me an example of a religious violence that was rooted at ethnic conflict
I am going to close this question because the way it is worded is more likely to result in opinions and specualtion, which is not acceptable. The two actual questions could perhaps be posed separately as two different questions by asking what documentation exists to support the notion that either conflict happened because of religion or ethnicity. I would strongly suggest creating two new questions along those guidelines.

+1 for pointing out that at the time of the Civil War it was NOT illegal.
