ROCKFORD, Ill. - Dec. 14, 2016 - PRLog -- A new book called "Forest City Stories" has just been released. The book focuses on writers from the Rockford, Illinois area. Among those writers is Gary Hill. Hill has been publishing Music Street Journal since 1998. He has also authored several books including "The Strange Sound of Cthulhu: Music Inspired by the Writings of H.P. Lovecraft" (with a tenth anniversary hard cover edition recently released) and "Poetry of the Air: A Collection of Love Letters from Musicians to Music." Recently Hill has been compiling a series of books archiving all the articles ever published at Music Street Journal.

The description of "Forest City Stories" says, "Contributor Jenny Mathews once said that when everything else was lost, when all else was gone, that the makers would remain. Rockford does, indeed, possess an abundance of such individuals: the makers, the dreamers, the writers, the poets, the musicians, the artisans, the craftspeople, and the volunteers. It is through their generosity of spirit that this book came to be. A small group of Rockford's makers came together as one to share some of the city's historic tales, as well as some of their own stories, poems, art, and photography. All of this, in an effort to create a gestalt - an organized whole that is more profoundly compelling than its individual parts."

"Forest City Stories" comes from Heath D Alberts. Alberts has compiled and edited and published the book. He also contributed content to the collection. The author list beyond Alberts and Hill is Kathi Kresol, Ernie Fuhr Jr., Bart 'Zethen' Luhman and Karna Tecla. The aforementioned Mathews served as an illustrator on the project, while Jeremy Klonicki provided the cover photography.

"Forest City Stories" will be available in Rockford, Illinois at Phoenix Traders (215 7th Street). It is available world-wide at For more from Gary Hill, check out  Books from Gary Hill are available at
