Book Cover for "Aftermath: Reflections on Near-life Experiences" by Dr. Michael A. Roberts, HGTC Professor of English

Horry-Georgetown Technical College (HGTC) Professor of English, Dr. Michael Roberts, recently unveiled his latest creation, "Aftermath: Reflections on Near-life Experiences." This compelling collection of poetry delves into the chasm between our aspirations and the often-harsh realities of existence, offering profound insights into the human condition.

Debuting on Amazon at an impressive #34, based on pre-sale figures, "Aftermath" promises to captivate readers with its raw and introspective exploration of life's unfulfilled desires and missed opportunities. Dr. Roberts, a prolific author with this being his sixth book, has once again demonstrated his literary prowess and deep understanding of the human psyche.

Inspired by poignant encounters with old friends and acquaintances, "Aftermath" invites readers to reflect on their own life journeys, confronting the "what-if" and "if only" moments that punctuate our existence. Through a series of evocative poems, Dr. Roberts navigates themes of connection, spirituality, and self-fulfillment, offering solace and inspiration to those who grapple with the complexities of modern life.

In a generous gesture of philanthropy, Dr. Roberts has pledged to donate all author royalties from "Aftermath" to the Paralyzed Veterans of America, continuing his tradition of giving back to the community. Previous contributions from his book sales have supported the noble endeavors of St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.

Commenting on his latest work, Dr. Roberts shared, "My new book is a tribute to the resilience of the human spirit in the face of adversity. Through 'Aftermath,' I hope to spark meaningful conversations about the paths we choose and the roads left untraveled."

HGTC President, Dr. Marilyn Murphy Fore, commended Dr. Roberts for his literary achievements, stating, "We are immensely proud of Dr. Roberts and his contributions to both academia and the literary world. 'Aftermath' exemplifies the intellectual curiosity and compassion that define our institution's values."

"Aftermath: Reflections on Near-life Experiences" is now available at leading retailers including Barnes and Noble, Books-a-Million, Amazon, Bookzilla, Wal-Mart, and Target, inviting readers to embark on a profound journey of self-discovery and introspection.
