Book Review: Dan Ariely’s “Predictably Irrational”

Book Review: Dan Ariely’s “Predictably Irrational”

Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces that Shape Our Decisions is a book by academic Dan Ariely. There is so much good stuff in this book. Whether you are looking to understand humans, sell products, design a better society or merely learn some interesting stuff, this book is worth reading.

He begins by telling a story about The Economist. They offer free options: online only, print only, online and print. Print only and online and print are priced the same. Why would they do this? Because people compare things relatively. Continue Reading

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
