5 Day Free Ebook Offer! Graveyard of the Pieties (Amazon)

5 Day Free Ebook Offer! Graveyard of the Pieties (Amazon)

From November 22 to November 26 2016 my ebook Graveyard of the Pieties is available 100% free on Amazon!

Three stories which are rather more ‘literary’ than many of my stories in fake news outlets. Lots of room for deep philosophical reflection on the part of thoughtful readers! However, the stories are very immediate and heartsome, and thus can be enjoyed merely as entertainment. Continue Reading

Honest Adolph Launch Day! Thanks for Your Support!

Honest Adolph Launch Day! Thanks for Your Support!

On this historically significant day, November 5…

The day of gunpowder, treason and plot…

The day of establishment intrigue and anti-establishment counter-intrigue…

I am pleased to announce that Vol I of my near-future speculative fiction novel, Honest Adolph, is finally on the shelves! The ebook is available at the links below.

For those unaware of this bittersweet satirical novel of mine, here is the blurb:

In the near future, the Presidential election stirs the hearts of many.
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?’

Swan Morrison Novel Excerpt (Deep Black): Russian Double Agent Conspiracy?

Swan Morrison Novel Excerpt (Deep Black): Russian Double Agent Conspiracy?

Written by Swan Morrison – the award winning author of Judgement Day Deep Black is yet another affectionate comic tribute to many classic storylines.

Deep Black is a true story. To preserve confidentiality, however, all the characters, facts and circumstances have been changed.

When retired accountant, detective fiction devotee and lifelong philanderer, Philip Ramsbottom, set up a private investigation agency, he had thought it wise to accept only straightforward surveillance tasks – after all, his entire experience of detective work had been gained from reading crime novels.

Philip had thus not expected his very first commission to draw him into the murky world of espionage, and he was definitely not prepared for the death-defying mission that was to follow. Continue Reading

Thanks for Following SIC October Surprise Data Dump! Next Stop: Blair Fawkes Night!

Thanks for Following SIC October Surprise Data Dump! Next Stop: Blair Fawkes Night!

Although the Peace Criminals Project (Wallace Runnymede) is separate from and indeed unaffiliated with Glossy News (Brian K. White), I play a substantial role in both of these separate projects. Recently here at Glossy News, I spoke of the Peace Criminals Project’s massive ‘October Surprise Data Dump’ at the Satirical-Industrial Complex (SIC) site.

What’s next? Well, November 5 is Guy Fawkes Night, here in the UK. So, in order to bestow a fitting tribute to the proverbial ‘only man to ever enter parliament with good intentions,’ I am running a ‘Blair Fawkes Night’ at SIC! Continue Reading

New Satirical Anti-War Novel ‘Honest Adolph!’ Bad Election Campaigns, Military-Industrial Complex

New Satirical Anti-War Novel ‘Honest Adolph!’ Bad Election Campaigns, Military-Industrial Complex

After Rfreed’s ‘9/12/01,’ a whole new novel serial is starting on Neocon Surveillance!

‘Honest Adolph’ will appeal to liberty lovers of the left and of the right. And it may be of particular interest either to those who are concerned by the recent foreign policy consensus among the USA and its allies, or to those who are appalled by the recent Donhilly Trumpary fun & games.

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, here:

http://neoconsurveillance.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/Anti-War%20Fiction%20Serials

NOTE: Despite the mildly confusing photo accompanying this article, the novel is actually set in the near future, and no Richard Nixons were butthurt in the making of this article and this novel.

Rfreed’s Novel 9/12/2001.

Rfreed’s Novel 9/12/2001.

This is a book review of Rfreed’s novel ‘9/12/2001.’ Full disclosure: Rfreed and I have both published prolifically here at Glossy News.

The novel has been serialized, whether as a whole or in part, at Glossy News AND Neocon Surveillance. Eventually, there will be two full serials of this interesting work.

Rfreed’s 9/12/2001, like so many speculative fiction and alternate history novels, can be boiled down to one clean and simple (if also staggeringly vast) question and thought experiment: Continue Reading

Ebook  Update: Ivory Tower Satire, & a Bit of Poetry!

Ebook Update: Ivory Tower Satire, & a Bit of Poetry!

Two more satire ebooks are coming out on May 31. Pre-order now!

Firstly:

Professor Smiggles & The New Intellectual Warfare (Gang of Sneers Volume 2)
https://www.amazon.com/Professor-Smiggles-Intellectual-Warfare-Sneers-ebook/dp/B01F6CEBI8/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1463842433&sr=8-4&keywords=wallace+runnymede
Yes, this is a series! For Gang of Sneers Volume 1, see our cuddly old UKIP ranter, Tarquin Binnett:
https://www.amazon.com/Tarquin-Binnetts-Englishmans-Common-Jamboree-ebook/dp/B01E4KJA5M

Professor Guru Angus Lenn(on/in)vedanta Smiggles of the Social Constructionist String Theory Department in Bushmills Metaphysical College cuts quite a dashing figure. This pompous intellectual knows well enough how to bamboozle myriad uneducated and uncultivated hoodlums: such as vicious Confederate collectivists, genially whimsical UKIP candidates, gutter tabloid hacks, and sexually frustrated campus liberation crusaders.

But after a few episodes of crisp and generous dismissal, the good Professor fades from view, and two rather disturbing fairy tales present a more disconcerting picture. London’s new addition to the crowded market of postmodern soap operas, and the unhappy tale of un-un-reconstructionism end the witty Parisian proceedings on a rather poignant and dispiriting note.

This second volume of Gang of Sneers also includes the book Wallace Runnymede & The Great Flâneur Massacre: Reflections In & Out of Season. The latter is a reflexive non-fiction work which was originally published separately as an accompaniment to my novella The Great Flâneur Massacre, which is now being re-released on May 31 2016, simultaneously with Professor Smiggles & the New Intellectual Warfare.

“Crypto-Leftie Tabloids” Conspiracy Theory: John Gray & Richard Dawkins Respond

“Crypto-Leftie Tabloids” Conspiracy Theory: John Gray & Richard Dawkins Respond

A year ago, Glossy News recently gave you The Absolute Truth on how tabloid journalism in the UK works.

That’s right: my recent article on how “right-wing moral panic journalism” is actually a Trojan horse for “far-left-radical-deep-cover-subversion.”

Still, I thought I should ask a couple of scholars, because as is well enough known: Continue Reading

Are You Boehmermann? Join The Spectator’s ‘Offensive Erdogan Poetry Competition!’

Are You Boehmermann? Join The Spectator’s ‘Offensive Erdogan Poetry Competition!’

The Spectator are holding an ‘Offensive Erdogan Poetry Competition!’ Douglas Murray aptly notes:

The very possibility of putting someone on trial for being rude about Erdogan is as illiberal or rather anti-liberal as these things come.  It will be hardly more of a relief if he is found ‘not guilty’ than if he is found ‘guilty’. Continue Reading
