Pre-Dystopian America, Two Different Endings!


Thanks so much for following the Honest Adolph serial here at Glossy News. You can catch up on any updates about any future book release at Glossy News, as well as our Facebook page, which you can like right away! However, the easiest way might well be to follow my Patreon.
By the way, those subscribers who take the second-lowest patronage level or above (i.e. $3 + per month) will get access to the epilogue, which does NOT feature on the Glossy News serial!
Don’t worry… The novel ends perfectly well at the final chapter, which some of you will have read recently.
The epilogue is NOT AT ALL NECESSARY, because the novel finishes pretty well without it.
However, some of you may be itching to read more… Read more Pre-Dystopian America, Two Different Endings!

Chapter 32: It Depends on What “Democracy” Is (Honest Adolph, Volume III)


Some months later, it was the eve of the election. Pilder had already won the Democratic nomination by default. Meanwhile, Bubble had easily demolished the few remaining stragglers, who simply couldn’t compete with his relentless barrage of cruelty, crassness and viciousness.
The Presidential debates had turned out to be every bit as horrific (if horrifically entertaining also!) as expected.
And even the Machiavellian cunning of Pilder was at times lost for words; the Democratic candidate only had partial and half-hearted support from the party establishment, as he had never been supposed to win in the first place. Dark rumours persisted that the private view of the party hierarchy was that the Democrats would actually benefit if Pilder were to crash and burn; because it would kill off radical change in all forms, for a generation; if not ten, or twenty, or a hundred.
At the moment, it looked like Bubble was a shoe-in. This was not to say, of course, that support was universal. Some juvenile college students and professional grievance peddlers still doggedly clung to the corpse of Democratic progressivism; Bennie Pilder seemed to represent the dying scream, the final, desperate death throes of a doomed party. It was rumoured that the party might split completely if Pilder ended up suffering the commonly predicted electoral massacre. But nobody seriously thought that would make any difference, no matter what they said. Read more Chapter 32: It Depends on What “Democracy” Is (Honest Adolph, Volume III)

Chapter 30: Neurodiversity is Mighty (Honest Adolph, Volume III)


Saul pored through his transcript of this debate. He clumsily dragged a purple, jagged line with his marker pen; an unusual choice for a task like this, but so be it. As he stood up and moved towards the restroom, Deborah subtly inched over to have a look.
She was quite shocked to read the transcript, and she wondered if Saul was quite well. She found it hard to believe that what she was reading was a true and authentic transcript of the recent debate.
MARCUS CHARLIE-ASS BUBBLE:
Ha! Are you here to save the little guy?
HONEST ADOLPH
No, I am not here to save the little guy. And there is no little guy. Each one of us, I say yes, every one of us, we are all mighty giants! But we are ever under the boots of cringing dwarves.

Chapter 29: Conspiracy Corners (Honest Adolph, Volume III)

The media tore into Adams after the debate. In fact, if anything, the sensationalist conservative media outlets went easier on him than the more established, mainstream outlets. For quite some time, the latter had been devoted largely to secondary journalism, i.e. relying parasitically on the hard work of the largely vanishing indymedia market. Over time, the smaller and more agile outlets had found themselves increasingly unable to compete, as the mainstream outlets looted as much of their work as they possibly could, while cynically dismissing the rest of their work as ‘conspiracy theories.’

Chapter 28: Things Not Yet Seen (Honest Adolph, Volume III)

Senator Bubble was succeeding very well in picking off his opponents one by one. Although he was not himself a very intelligent or articulate person, he was certainly smart enough to flatter and bribe his way to what by now seemed a certain victory. The conservative media and much of the party machinery seemed to have realised that the only way to beat Benny Pilder would be to choose the most entertaining candidate. There was certainly a large field of candidates; but most of them were boring, plagued by scandals, or simply too ambitious.
WOW! SO WHAT ABOUT OUR HERO, HONEST ADOLPH? CAN HE MANAGE TO MAKE SOME HEADWAY AGAINST BUBBLE? CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT MORE!
