One Day Deal!

Not strictly war related, but I will occasionally post an ebook deal of mine here. On 21 October, I have a periodic book deal for my anti UKIP satire: 'Tarquin Binnett's Sound Englishman's Common Sense Jamboree.'

For 24 hours (I repeat, Friday 21 October 2016), this ebook will be 100% free. After that, it will revert to 99p, 99 cents, and similar prices in other currencies.

This short story collection brings together some heartwarming and disrespectfully pointed satire stories about Baron Tarquin Binnett De Albion, Esquire. Tarquin Binnett is UKIP's most cuddly, genial and most crucially of all, stridently prejudiced representative. Little Winchester, Suffolk has never known such a fine, patriotic, sound Englishman's common sense gentleman-bigot! In this story compendium, there are also a couple of cameo appearances from the similarly genial (but rather more earthy) red-top moral panic hack, Jackie Smack. Fairest England has never known such dire times as these: but with well-meaning and bumbling hard-right populist buffoons like Tarquin and Jackie, Britain has never been in safer hands! (But then again, perhaps that is not saying much)...

Extremist Pinko Professor Vilifies Humanitarian Heroes

This story was first published quite a while back... but it's more relevant and consequential than William '20 Pints' Hague will ever be!


Some recent comments about humanitarian heroism have failed to satisfy the ever-impossible-to-please satire news fixture, Pre-Senior-Professor-Guru-Emeritus Angus Lenn(on/in)vedanta Smiggles from the Social Constructionist String Theory Department in Bushmills Metaphysical College.

Notable public figure and moderate political Tory-ist William Hague moans:

It is just so very, very unfair, how the Russian government are not letting young LGBT individuals learn to accept their own sexuality, and are persecuting people and causing them to live their lives in fear.
And then they have the brazen cheek to compare this draconian new law to Section 28? Oh, I am so distraught at this! This is clearly such a very, very unkind double standard, and the kind of utterly inexcusable special pleading that I would never have expected to come from the leaders of a prominent nation-state.

David Cameron Patronizes Disenfranchized 'International Community'

Notable-Public-Figure and Establishment-Career-Dynamic David Cameron has decided that the Tories have failed to successfully integrate enough marginalized communities, so that they will just shut the hell up and stop making trouble.

Admittedly, he put it rather more delicately like that, but (achingly-non-)arguably no less extravagantly:

Reminder about Satirical Anti-War Novel Serial, Honest Adolph!

Please don't forget about the ongoing novel serial at Neocon Surveillance.

Here's the link to the 'anti-war fiction serials' part of the site:

Here, you can find a new chapter per week. Every Monday, one or more instalments starting at 15.30 UK time. (Whenever there is more than one instalment to make up a chapter, each instalment appears ten minutes after the previous one: e.g. 15.30, 15.40, 15.50)

The link I just pointed you towards also includes a previous novel: Rfreed's alternate history work '9/12/01,' showing what might have happened if Cheney had been the president of the USA after 9/11.

Drone Address: Obama Condemns (-Ish) Suicide Bombers

President Obama has conclusively refuted all the unpatriotic pinkos who hate America so much, they want to maliciously and opportunistically hinder his drone campaign…

Which latter, as we all know and agree, exists purely in order for your safety alone.

Read it with an open mind.

Well, I mean, c'mon; at least he's not a neocon, right?


Now let me say this.
Well, why not? I mean, if I don't say it, who's gonna say it?
I, President Barack Obama, leader of the Free World…
And also of all the various integral synthetic components of the world that are not technically 'free' as such, but that we are hoping to assist with their rather unfortunate handicap very soon…
Well, I could perhaps say that I am kind of, as it were, a hundred million per cent convinced that I am no advocate of merely partisan politics…
Yes, I'm sort of leaning towards absolute, unqualified certainty on that point, if you will.
However, there are those in Our…
Sorry, My Nation (hah, look! No teleprompter!)…

CROSSPOST: New Novel Serial at Neocon Surveillance

New Novel: Honest Adolph.

The novel is set in the near future, leading up to a new Presidential election.

The warmongering Republican and Democratic establishment are expecting to sweep the board, and fortify the current neoconservative/liberal interventionist consensus.

Dissident Republican Senator Saul Friedman is one of the very last of a dying breed of libertarian Republicans.

Expelled from the party, Friedman implores his old friend Adolph Adams to run for the presidency. The plainspeaking and sober Adams is deemed a pitiful joke by the establishment, but he does have some success in garnering votes. However, it is simply impermissible that a non-interventionist could ever gain the Democratic ticket. Adams is no more welcome in the Democrats than Friedman was in the Republican Party.

Is there any hope at all that Adams can roll back the tide of interventionist barbarism?

Either way, he faces some truly formidable and cunning foes, who will not relinquish their privilege lightly. Caught between a rabble-rousing firebreather Republican Frontrunner, a hideously callous Democratic leader and various cynical, unprincipled, talented mediocrities, it is not only the career of Adolph Adams that is in peril.

If his enemies can only but once have their way, Adolph's defiance of the status quo will eventually cost him his life.

Can this sober and levelheaded man of principle manage to evade the devious plots and schemes of 'the great and the good?'

The only way to find out is to follow this serial.
