Glossy News Contributor Book Showcase Starts Tomorrow!


For the next three days, we will be showcasing three ebooks. Each one is written by a Glossy News contributor. This is the first time we have tried such a showcase; needless to say, more will follow in the near future.

But from tomorrow onwards, enjoy the introductions to these humorous books by Swan Morrison, Rfreed and Jonathan Mitchell!

Ebook Update 1/2: Wallace Runnymede Satire Catastrophes


My revision of #1 and #2 of Wallace Runnymede Satire Catastrophes (I Shouldn’t Do God & Football Frikkups) are now through on all outlets! In addition, volumes #3 and #4 (I Still Shouldn’t Do God & Differently Humored) are now available too!

All four ebooks are free, and #4 is fairly timely for Autism Month, April 2016. It is disability-themed. #1 & #3 are religious satire, and #2 is football/soccer themed.

These ebooks are all available on Barnes & Noble, Apple iBooks, Kobo, Scribd, Page Foundry, Tolino, & 24 Symbols. Sadly not Amazon; but visit this very same site, Glossy News, in an hour from now; and you will see information about my recent range of Amazon ebooks!

Amazon Ebooks: Dark & Surreal Poetry Out Already… Intriguing Fiction to Follow, April 11!


I just mentioned an hour ago that I was branching out into publishing on Amazon. I am still publishing the Wallace Runnymede Satire Catastrophe free ebook series via Draft2Digital (Tolino, iBooks, Kobo, 24 Symbols, Nook, Page Foundry, Scribd); and I am still serializing these ebooks at the Satire Catastrophes site. But what about my Amazon ebooks?

Here is the first ebook I have ever released on Amazon.

Foaming the Optics: Poems Against Patriarchy, Poems Against Neuriarchy

If you think this is a very PC concept for a poetry ebook, you are wildly mistaken.

And I, by fairly obvious contrast, am wildly correct.

Or, at least, wildly contrarian... Read the full story

Ebook News: New Satire Compilation, Two Ebooks Temporarily Withdrawn, And… What?! (2/2)


Yesterday, I said that I’ve recently decided to temporarily withdraw The Great Flâneur Massacre from the market, as well as Reflections In and Out of Season. I will reintroduce them later. I gave my reasons for doing so… Always important to strategize carefully!

And I also said:

I need to think about accessibility: particularly because this is my first ever piece of extended fiction! I don’t want to give an unnecessarily negative impression.

I also said:

So what am I going to do?

Well, that would be telling! Find out tomorrow…

Here’s my plan going forward. Read the full story

Ebook News: New Satire Compilation, Two Ebooks Temporarily Withdrawn, And… What? (1/2)


For some time, I’ve had three self-published ebooks available on a number of outlets:

1. My novella, The Great Flâneur Massacre.

2. The non-fiction accompanying volume, Wallace Runnymede and The Great Flâneur Massacre: Reflections In and Out of Season.

3.  The fake news satire collection I Shouldn’t Do God (first volume of the anticipated series Wallace Runnymede Satire Catastrophes).

Here, I’m going to discuss my strategy for the next while: not only to keep you informed, or to maintain interest in my ebooks, but also to provide some reflections that might be of use for some people who either have self-published in the past, or are contemplating doing so in future.

Expanded Release of Free Religious Satire Compilation: ‘I Shouldn’t Do God!’ (2/2)


6. A Z GRIMSBY SLAYS THE DRAGON

Ain’t no atheist like a disenchantment-community atheist…? Well,  an outraged A Z Grimsby does indeed insist on holding forth on the purely irrational and frivolously superstitious basis of children’s toys, especially cuddly fictive animals.

I mean take dragons for example, they may be cuddly and funny and comfy and gloriously colored, flamboyantly patterned, and so on.

But they have absolutely nothing whatsoever, nothing IN THE LEAST to do with science as we now understand it.

Yes, well, if you tell your children that there MIGHT JUST be such a thing as a dragon, even leaving the question slightly open, you are giving the irrationalists an inch…

And they will undoubtedly take a mile. Or indeed ten!

Expanded Release of Free Religious Satire Compilation: ‘I Shouldn’t Do God!’ (1/2)


I’ve recently re-released the first volume of my fake news satire compilation series, Wallace Runnymede Satire Catastrophes. More Wallace Runnymede Satire Catastrophes volumes will follow from Spring 2016 onwards. But for now, volume 1, I Shouldn’t Do God, is a somewhat expanded one in comparison to the earlier version of this same first volume of this exciting ongoing series. And it’s free too!

Also, I have recently managed to get Reflections In & Out of Season, the accompanying volume to The Great Flâneur Massacre, brought down to free again too. And as for The Great Flâneur Massacre, this is still 99 cents, or similar in other currencies, depending on the location of the vendor! These latter two books are also available from the same ebook outlets as below. See more information at: http://wallacerunnymede.com/category/ebooks-2/

1. WHY SHOULDN’T I DO GOD?

My recent tribute essay to Charlie Hebdo, serialised on Glossy News. Links to Glossy News originals for each of the instalments here, and links to the Wallace Runnymede republication of the essay here.

2. UNPRECEDENTED VATICAN SCANDAL: GERMAN INFIDEL CANONIZED

The Vatican, like the Pope, should be infallible, but what happens when even infallible institutions slip up the odd time, and canonize people who have no right in hell to such an accolade?

If this is to stand, we might have to canonize other great, virtuous and saintly figures such as:

Buddha, Quetzalcoatl, Sri Krishna, Mungai, Amaterasu, Laozi, Adi Shankara, Hercules, Guru Nanak, the Dalai Lama, Elmer Gantry, Arius, Sabellius, Basilides, Valentinus, Simon Magus, Martin Luther…

3. DALAI LAMA SUES CANON WELBY
