About WE WANT THEM INFECTED:
The book is a forensic analysis of the contrarians’ erroneous assumptions of safety and the damage done during a pandemic. Whilst spouting what should happen and what will happen, contrarians completely misinterpreted, downplayed, and distorted what was happening. They spouted frequent predictions of imminent herd immunity that never came. They forecasted underestimates of the mortality and from behind a desk suggested over intubation was an issue. These error-rich, self-promoting activists through their various platforms advocated that adults should be protected via an infect-the-children strategy. Unfortunately for both children and parents the hazards were real; they did get sick, they did spread the virus, and some are still paying the price. Howard kept the receipts. The distorted contrarians’ views of the situation are presented alongside the reality. The 27 reasons to not vaccinate children are scientifically dismantled. The consequences of this erroneous propagation on people compared to the contrarians is unjust.I thought the real pandemic error was getting the Mode of Transmission wrong. The evidence in this book is that the contrarians did as much damage with their erroneous assumptions of safety. Although they will never admit, apologise, nor remedy, one can only hope that registration authorities will consider action necessary.“This book is fundamentally about the obligations doctors [and nurses] have when communicating with the public [and colleagues] about a deadly virus.” I would also add and the obligations of these healthcare workers to correct erroneous statements.
Dr. Howard breaks down how certain medical community and public health professionals simply let the United States public down. Probably responsible for hundreds of thousands of Americans not making it through the pandemic.He tells the story, names the folks and brings the receipts with about 200 pages of footnotes.An amazing opportunity for readers to learn about vaccines and the price of disinformation.
Sam Barbee opens a portal on a world in tumult, storms inside and out, and invites us to “pet my feral dread.” Observation of daily life calls forth a maximalist esthetic, a riot in language, images detonating against each other. In poetry of paradox and opposition, Barbee seeks the balm of nature, but finds it lurking only at the edges of devastation, like a lone crayfish at a pool’s edge after the hurricane. Timely in its use of colloquial language and touchstones such as masks and ADHD, these poems warn “we have all given consent” to horror of the modern-day, yet in broken landscapes we can sometimes find ourselves in “a pleat of bliss.”
—Valerie Neiman author of In the Lonely Backwater and Leopard Lady: A Life in Verse
Sam Barbee’s Apertures of Voluptuous Force is a stunning collection of lush, unforgettable, and well-crafted poems. I often found myself re-reading a line or a whole stanza again simply for the sheer pleasure of the words Barbee chose and arranged so beautifully. The sonic typology alone of the poems is impressive, and his range of topics, expansive. Witness Barbee’s skill in a few lines from the poem Lumens: “Infused in owl’s/screech, midnight, explicit with stars,/clad in joules, blinks as it releases/comets and Aurora Borealis.Tinkling,/the tickled world stares back.” Barbee is all of this and a sense of humor, such as in the poem “Body Neutral” in which the speaker states, “My body:/the podgy regent.” Who could resist this book? I’ll be coming back for more as these poems deserve a third or fourth reading.

For years I have watched Sam Barbee’s progression as a poet as his lens widened, his sentences growing with vibrant imagery, each poem flashing open with a vital story only he can see. He writes like a director orchestrates a film; and I am always keen to see where he places his camera, what flushes up in his singular vision, what relationships he has discovered and sharpened by his engagement with the world. An aperture can be defined as the opening in a lens through which light passes to enter the camera. A poem’s power and motion are regulated by the amount of restraint allowed to pour the right words in the right order, lending light in its engagement with the reader. Barbee’s mastery as a poet is cinematic, his poems are indeed Apertures of Voluptuous Force, and as you make your way through their various musical frames you may also find they have opened new and unforgettable vistas in your imagination.
