Remember New World Bookshop? A small, privately-owned bookstore in the heart of the Gaslight District, that was an integral part of the neighborhood for thirty-three years? New World was owned by Ed Kluska, who along with running a bookstore offered astrological readings, taught meditation, and helped develop the local New Age community.
The bookstore is no longer, but everything else Ed Kluska did before it closed he continues to do from his home in Clifton – and that includes writing. This week Ed published a book entitled Mayan Calendar Ends, Fiscal Cliff Begins: There’s Hope for 2013.
I don’t want to give too much away, but Ed does not think the world is going to end on December 21. Okay, I’ll say just a little bit more: he does, however, see evidence that something significant is happening, and we should know about it.
If you’re interested in Ed’s new book, you can call him at 513.861.6100 to arrange a payment, or you can simply mail him $18 ($15 plus $3 postage). The mailing address: Ed Kluska / 545 Ludlow Ave. / Cincinnati, OH / 45220.
I should also mention that, along with publishing a website, Ed writes a newsletter that you can subscribe to. To do so, visit his website at edkluska.com.
And now to editorialize, briefly: this is an exciting event. New World Bookshop helped make the Gaslight District such a unique and desirable neighborhood. New World’s spirit lives on in the work Ed has done since then and in his new book. I’m sure that many people reading this blog entry will have fond memories of that store, and you should be aware that Ed is available for consultations on relationships, children, business, etc. (check his website for more information).
