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?’

Psst! By the Way, the Flâneurs are Coming… ;)


Hm… I should probably be just that little bit sneaky and conveniently forget that I’ve already told you this, but:

I am setting the price of The Great Flâneur Massacre at $2.99. Hm…

Originally said ‘intended to set,’ but I’m trying to keep on your toes, like all good flâneur-professors say when their words are challenged 😉

I believe this is a fair price to pay for a first novella; particularly one which my esteemed colleagues at Glossy News weren’t prepared to turn their noses up at, when I published two samples!

I mean, these guys sure know their David Mitchell from their David Hassellhoff, or their Noel Gallagher from their… um, Gallagher. Read the full story
