Set in the late Roman Republic, in the first century B.C.E., The Forgotten Legion is a tale of the greatest empire of the ancient world from the perspective of those on the lowest rungs of its society. Romulus and Fabiola are twins, born into slavery to a enslaved mother who is much beloved by them, and much abused by their owner. At 13 years old, they and their mother are sold: Romulus to gladiator school, Fabiola into prostitution, where she will catch the eye of one of the most powerful men in Rome, and their mother into obscurity and death in the salt mines. Tarquinius is an Etruscan, a warrior and soothsayer, born enemy of Rome and trained by the last haruspex in the forgotten arts of divination. A runaway slave, then an AWOL Legionaire, he has a long foretold destiny that will take him to the very ends of the known world. Brennus is a Gaul from the Allobreges tribe. In the battle against the Roman army, his entire family, perhaps his entire tribe, is slaughtered, and only he survives to be sold as a slave to be trained as a gladiator. He rises to become one of the most famous and feared gladiators of his day - and mentor to the boy slave, Romulus, who dreams night and day of escape and of revenge. The lives of these four characters are bound and interwoven in a marvellous story which begins in a Rome riven by corruption, violence and political enmities, but ends far away, where Romulus, Brennus and Tarquinius find themselves fighting against the Parthians and overwhelming odds - survivors of one of the most legendary battles in Roman military history and destined to become part of one of the most compelling, enduring legends: The Forgotten Legion.

Armed with speakers, turntables, light systems, and records, Filipino American mobile DJ crews, such as Ultimate Creations, Spintronix, and Images, Inc., rocked dance floors throughout the San Francisco Bay Area from the late 1970s through the mid-1990s. In Legions of Boom noted music and pop culture writer and scholar Oliver Wang chronicles this remarkable scene that eventually became the cradle for turntablism. These crews, which were instrumental in helping to create and unify the Bay Area's Filipino American community, gave young men opportunities to assert their masculinity and gain social status. While crews regularly spun records for school dances, weddings, birthdays, or garage parties, the scene's centerpieces were showcases—or multi-crew performances—which drew crowds of hundreds, or even thousands. By the mid-1990s the scene was in decline, as single DJs became popular, recruitment to crews fell off, and aspiring scratch DJs branched off into their own scene. As the training ground for a generation of DJs, including DJ Q-Bert, Shortkut, and Mix Master Mike, the mobile scene left an indelible mark on its community that eventually grew to have a global impact.

The untold stories from the individuals who've never had the opportunity to speak, whether they were too afraid to be judged, too scared to handle the consequences, too depressed to put in the effort, too shy to have the interaction, too tired to waste their energy, too busy trying to chase dreams, too lost in their lover's eyes to face reality, or just outright deceased. The reasons do not matter, only the situations, stories, and outcomes that each piece entails. Each individual is their own, but their lessons and advice come from a similar origin, their heart. There will be heartbreak, betrayal, success, struggles, death, fates worse than death, and lust because why not?"The Legion of the Forgotten" is a collection of poetry and prose formed around vast figurative concepts that repeatedly present themselves in everyday life. The most prominent themes are determination, love, lust, betrayal, and the varying consequences that are a result of those themes. The collection is written from varying points of view. For example, there are several pieces that are written from a fictional character's point of view, others that are written from a omniscient point of view, and even some written from my own point of view. There are several pieces that include references to great literary works or current day events and almost all of the pieces were influenced by real life people and situations. The most essential and unique aspect of "The Legion of the Forgotten" is the intriguing use of diction to formulate an emotional tale that all various types of readers can connect with because often, the most crucial lessons are the lessons that we all consciously knew existed, but could never fully understand to implement.
