These poems depict a journey through a dark landscape, where the political and personal are fused into a geography of disinformation, sex, betrayal and deadly technology. Phelan has produced verbal "snapshots" of a subterranean war-- with fronts in Los Angeles as well as Fallujah-- where the only defense is one's integrity and the stakes may be life itself.

Assisted Suicide: A Slippery Slope to Eugenics?
State courts in Montana and New Mexico have affirmed the rights to physician assisted suicide.
What’s wrong with that, you might well ask. If a person is terminally ill and wishes to end his or her suffering, why should this not be permitted?
In fact, this issue is not as clear cut as some might wish you to believe. The effect of such legal permissions, as seen in other countries which have historically permitted doctor- assisted suicide, is worth reviewing.
"Dr. Death" To Be Sentenced November 26

“Dr. Death” to Be Sentenced on November 26
Dr. Wouter Basson—dubbed by the media “Dr. Death”– will face sentencing by the Health Professions Council of South Africa on November 26-29, a sentencing that has now been delayed for nearly a year. In December of 2013, Basson was found guilty by the HPCSA for acting unprofessionally as a medical doctor during his tenure as Director of Project Coast, the chemical and biological weapons programme under the South African apartheid government.
The HPCSA found Basson guilty on four uncontested charges:
Basson has a long history of entanglements with the legal system and appears to be slathered in Teflon. He was first arrested in a “sting operation” in 1997 with over 1000 Ecstasy tablets in his possession. In a long running trial in Pretoria High Court, he was charged with 67 counts, including 229 murders, fraud, embezzlement, drug trafficking and possession. Over 150 witnesses testified for the prosecution. Basson was the sole witness in his defense.
In the year 2000, an out of work reporter is approached by a man who is not whom he appears to be. Lured into a romantic affair with him, the reporter is soon to lose everything—her family, her home, her country and nearly her life.
EXILE is the true story of Janet Phelan, who fled the US after the attempts to permanently silence her went awry. The lengths to which the intelligence community will go to cover their tracks is revealed in this memoir. The ultimate question—what is the meaning behind this grave assault on an American citizen—unfolds as the story is told.
