First a photo of me (left) my favorite African-American author Peter (BRM) Grant (right)

If you don’t plan to buy any of the books that I’m flogging (below) as Christmas gifts, you should consider Peter’s books. He has a number of skillfully crafted tomes for sale. Check them out here at his author’s page.

If neither of our work appeals, there is always the great Jim (Old NFO) Curtis.

There is roughly a month to Christmas and these books by Jules Smith and me are still for sale! Help Jules pay her electric bill in Old Blighty where the prices are insane.

Legends endure for a reason. Sometimes they survive to impel our cultural hubris. Occasionally they endure because they instill a sense of focus on what was and perhaps. a vision of what will be. They are always a reminder. When they come. back to haunt us, things start to get interesting.

A couple in Iceland, very much in love, visit a historic site and suddenly he throws himself into a volcano, burning to a crisp in front of her eyes, and thereafter, it’s always raining.

The dwindling North Sea Oil supply is suddenly rejuvenated with a new discovery, a huge oil field of light, sweet, crude worth billions. Exploration, drilling, and pumping begin to breathe life into a faltering industry, and just as things seem to be going well, the oil is polluted with radioactive thorium.

US Army Special Forces operators in Iceland on an exercise are drawn into a crisis and as NASA withdraws, they boldly face the challenge. All but one are rendered insane and the memory of Red Mist turns into a quest for answers–that the CIA already has.

In Texas, a political fixer is called on to deal with a situation and finds himself completely out of his depth.

In England, a psychologist’s life is turned upside down as a skald makes a disturbing prophecy.

In China, aggressive experiments into neutrino research create a completely unforeseen disaster and portend a global cataclysm of Biblical proportions.

Just when you’re sure that you have all the answers and are confident that the science is settled, it isn’t.


Red Mist and Loki’s Fire (sequel) are available in print and digital formats.



OR,  if you’re looking for something a little different with no science fiction embedded…


Exiles from Eden, which is more truth than fiction – based on actual people and events, set in the early 1990s, is told from different first-person perspectives. In a sense, it is a coming-of-age story wherein the principal characters, Sean O’Bryan and Jessica Baker are joined in a backdrop of intrigue as they simply attempt to live life.

Sean, on a journey to be his own man, joins Satan’s Legion, a motorcycle gang in Southern California. Jessica, adrift as a stranger in a strange land, joins him in the gang as they try to work out who they are as individuals and as a couple.

As their need to join the criminal world completely becomes more pressing, things for Sean and Jess don’t realize that what they say is being recorded and what they plan to do is part of a larger net that is dropping over them. While justice is about to be served, compassion by the undercover police officer in their midst sets the wheels in motion for their escape.

Jessica is wanted in England for a crime that she did not fully commit and their involvement with Satan’s Legion culminates in a flight to the Boneyard, in the most unlikely place.


White Powder

There is something intoxicating about a secret. There’s something terrifying about a shadow war. You may not know much about Laos or the world of WHITE POWDER. You aren’t supposed to. Drugs, sex, and murder combined with personal and national agendas to create the hidden world of heroin where governments and drug empires collide.

WHITE POWDER is the story of US Army officer, Craig Burton, who became something else. Burton’s metamorphosis can’t be explained except within the context of others whose roles played a part in the outcome.

It’s a story of spies from various nations with both personal and national agendas who congregated in Laos and were willing to do ANYTHING to meet their objectives. The end inevitably justified the means.

Lastly, it’s also the story of Charlotte Sabon, who met Craig Burton, fell in love, and was willing to commit murder to keep him. In the end, she got both what she wanted and what she deserved.


    • Have you e-mailed BRM? He may drift by this blog today and I’m sure that when he reads this, he will be disturbed. If you’re having problems, there will be others who have the same issues.

  1. Excellent reads…I still have a stack to get through (some recommended by you), then I can restock with some of Peter’s.

    Speaking of Volcano’s…this from the AZ Election cycle (Prop 308):

    “Christian Penichet-Paul, director of the Higher Ed Immigration Portal and State Policy, called its approval “a historic achievement that expands access to equal tuition rates to the state’s undocumented students.” “Arizonans have delivered a resounding message to the nation: undocumented students are and should continue to be integral parts of our communities,” Penichet-Paul said.”

    Geez, another hyphenated soy-latte’ moron with misplaced sinful compassion. Shiveluch Volcano in Russia needs a sacrifice to keep it from erupting, and this guy is perfect for the job.

  2. I’ve read all your books except Exiles from Eden. It’s next on my list. They are all great reads! BTW are you working on a 3rd installment of Red Mist?
    I’m currently reading “How Not to Shoot Fish, and Other Deer that Got Away”.
    For those with an interest in history, may I recommend “Churchill’s Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare: The Mavericks Who Plotted Hitler’s Defeat” by Giles Milton.

    • Jules and I started on Red Mist 3 and got about 150 pages into it but the project stalled. Jules is buying a lighthouse in England – yes, a literal lighthouse. Maybe once she’s moved in there, we’ll kick that can again.

      I’m working on Broken Toys at the moment – a solo effort.

  3. So since this an open thread…..
    I’ve had this bouncing around in my head for a while and would love your opinion and that of others that lurk here:
    Everyone assumes that the PRC will invade Tiawan. What if they blockade it instead?
    Preceded by a grand announcement in the UN that it is time to bring this renegade providence back into the fold, that this is an internal matter and warn other Nations to not get involved.
    The US would most likely send a couple of destroyers on a FONE through the Tiawan Straight which result in a collision with one or two boats from their Maritime Milita with resulting loss of life.
    I don’t know, what do you guys think?

  4. I have all of Old NFO’s and BRM’s books and all but two of the books you have written. The will probably be purchased this year. I would say “write faster” but that seems a bit unfair so I will just sit back and wait, then enjoy the fruits of all of your labors.

    Had an interesting and fun conversation with my seatmate on a flight from Georgia to back home in eastern Washington. Wide ranging conversation about a range of subjects from solar power to Teslas to environmentalism to writing (she has written a couple of books) to music. Quite enjoyable and it made the flight time pass quickly. She gets ALL of her information from CNN and PBS and I hope at least that I opened her eyes to other information sources. Somewhere over Montana she asked if I had my COVID shots and mentioned that she and here husband had all 5 shots and boosters. I told her that I normally treated medical information as personal but I have not had any of the COVID nonsense shots and she could look at the CDC website and VAERS data to see why. It was hilarious as she scooted as far from me as she could (hard to do in airline seats)and took out sanitizing wipes to wipe down everything. After that the conversation stopped. The whole situation really peaked my off beat sense of humor.

    • I was in Portland, Oregon yesterday. Bought a cyclocross bicycle from a woman living in the Council Crest area (highest point in PDX, nice and wealthy neighborhood. No vagrants camped out there). She was a stereotypical moneyed PDX’er, or so I thought. About 5’6″, looked 115 lbs but probably 125 because of being lean and more muscular (I did mention the bicycle racer part, yeah?) than usual, collar-length honey blonde hair, dressed in the uniform of black tights under denim miniskirt, fleece top, down vest, wooly hat with a pompom on top, and fashionable rubber boots (I was shocked when the Pretty Korean Girl told me what that sort of boots cost). Her SUV had stickers such as “Free Britney Griner” and similar political causes.

      While I was trying to free the bike’s chain from where it was trapped between the crankarm and the bottom bracket, somehow she brought up the vaccination thing. I said, “I’ll admit to being totally non-vaxxed. Won’t do it. If you feel the need to throw me out of your garage, now’s the time.” She stared at me for what felt like a full three seconds then stuck her hand out and said, “Oh thank God. To finally meet someone who’s not crazy!” Then she went off on “mass formation pyschosis” and all that. NOT what I expected from a lefty PDXer.

      • RE “mass formation psychosis”

        The official framing of the mass formation (or mass psychosis) “phenomenon” is misleading and wrong in terms of what the whole true reality is. The false hope-addicted psychologists and their acolytes want you to believe this is “just some temporary occasional” madness by the masses when it is but a spike of a CHRONIC madness going on for aeons with “civilized” people — read “The 2 Married Pink Elephants In The Historical Room –The Holocaustal Covid-19 Coronavirus Madness: A Sociological Perspective & Historical Assessment Of The Covid “Phenomenon”” ….

        One of these mainstream psychologists who have been spreading this whitewashed reality, Dr. Desmet, also fails to see that the PLANNED Covid Psyop is a TOTALLY deliberate ploy because he doesn’t think (after more than 1 year, even 2 years, into this total PLANNED scam!) it’s ALL intentionally sinister as he stated in a prior podcast (this makes him witting or unwitting controlled opposition). It should be apparent that Desmet’s lack of truth-telling is then also present in his largely plagiarized truth-distorting mass formation theory.

        In the May of 2022 podcast with James Corbett he stated that “some people tend to overestimate the degree of planning and intentions” (behind the COUNTLESS, VERIFIABLE, FULLY INTENTIONAL, FULLY PLANNED atrocities by the ruling tribe of psychopaths over the last century alone) and see all of it as being planned which Desmet called “an extreme position” … Sound logical thinking is “extreme” and therefore false and sick in his demented delusional view!

        In his overpriced misleading whitewashing old material regurgitated book the psychology of totalitarianism he too states that “There are countless … examples that seem to point in the direction of a plan being implemented, such as the fact that the definition of ‘pandemic’ was adjusted shortly before the coronavirus crisis; that the definition of ‘herd immunity’ was changed during the crisis, implying that only vaccines can achieve it … [he continuous with several other obvious facts of an ENTIRELY PLANNED event, especially discerned through the totality of all these facts].” “SEEM to point in the direction of a plan”??? No! They most evidently, clearly, and irrefutably DO demonstrate and prove it IS a COMPLETELY AND FULLY DELIBERATE PlanDemic! A big scam. An Entirely Planned Holocaust against the non-ruling herd of people (see cited link above). A coherent 12-year old kid can figure that out. But not Mr. I’m entitled to teach my deep wisdom to the world professor.

        It clearly shows Desmet’s own complete lunacy. But because almost everyone in the culture is a member of mass formation (madness), including the “woke” people of the alternative media domain, hardly anyone recognizes Desmet’s lunacy. Not surprising that he has even become some type of popular “guru” among the adherents of the alternative media landscape and his whitewashed fake narrative strongly resonates with both mainstream people and alternative mainstream folks.

        “All experts serve the state and the media and only in that way do they achieve their status. Every expert follows his master, for all former possibilities for independence have been gradually reduced to nil by present society’s mode of organization. The most useful expert, of course, is the one who can lie. With their different motives, those who need experts are falsifiers and fools. Whenever individuals lose the capacity to see things for themselves, the expert is there to offer an absolute reassurance.” —Guy Debord

        As expected, “useful expert” Desmet has been also advocating and pushing the false misleading dogma-based non-scientific holy mantra of trust the official science … “everything and everyone should follow the scientific consensus” [ ] — meaning trust and follow the fabricated fraudulent official consensus science behind the Covid jabs that the killing of millions of people around the world is based on(!!). Are you STILL wondering whom he’s wittingly or unwittingly serving? That’s why it’s no wonder he’s been heavily popularized globally by the dominant psychopathic world instead of censored and suppressed (as lots of truth-tellers have been), yet in his crafty stylish total hypocrisy and public misdirection ploy, he wants you to buy his belief that everyone should have a voice. Everyone BUT the true truth-tellers is what the reality is.

        With his SUPPORT of the Covid holocaust-driving official consensus science he OKAYS and PROMOTES the idiotic herd Covid mass formation (they way the masses “think” and act)! Yet in his absurdity, irrationality and lunacy, with his mass formation/mass psychosis notion he frames the problem as the public being a mere unaccountable non-culpable victim in this phenomenon (the gist of the circular argument is: the masses should change their thinking but they got brainwashed so they’re victims). Nothing could be further from the truth (see first referenced source above).

        With his false use of language Desmet also obscures or hides the true reality instead of directly and uncompromising exposing it — aiding the obfuscation of the vital reality of what the ruling authorities really are. He speaks of ‘the elite’ (as he does in a number of podcasts) when, in reality, they are THE SCUM OF HUMANS because they are REALITY-VERIFIED PSYCHOPATHS (see referenced source above). Yet in the Corbett podcast he “teaches” us that we, the masses, need to start thinking differently. Right… how about YOU start with sane instead of insane thinking/talking/”teaching”/etc, Dr. Desmet?

        How do self-styled “truth-tellers” wake up the masses to the so-called truth when they THEMSELVES use lies with their deceitful fake language???
        No one is “teaching” or “waking up” the ignorant masses to the CORE truths with lies, with the official “language of lies” (see first cited source above).

        This all means Desmet is ALSO a member of the masses of lunatics, an ACTIVE CARD-CARRYING MEMBER of mass formation!!! When, if at all, will he wake up from his state of mass psychosis, his “invisible” stupidity? When, if at all, will he face the TRUE and FULL reality instead of hiding behind fantasies such as his whitewashed “reality” of human civilization?

        It shows we live in a global mental asylum with criminal and/or delusional mainstream psychologists, scientists, and docs as the guards, “teachers” and “therapists” … The blind/criminal/mad leading the blind/criminal/mad; the blind/criminal/mad adhere to the blind/criminal/mad = the human madhouse.

        In October of 2022, once a few people caught onto his public-misdirecting game he took no responsibility for it but dishonestly and conveniently framed himself as the victim of frivolous attacks against him —

        Desmet is right in that truth-activists must fight against mass formation psychosis (human madness). That also means exposing HIS deeply destructive mad part of it. This comment serves, in part, that objective.

  5. The old newspaper axiom, “If it bleeds, it leads” is cast in concrete. “If it can be made to fit the approved narrative, make it happen” is the current axiom. Case in point, the Colorado Springs Alphabet Club shooting (LBQetc). Shout out to those patrons who quickly subdued the shooter. Gay doesn’t mean gutless. What the media maggots are doing is frantically looking for ways to make it a hate crime, a right wing conspiracy MAGA blah blah. Seems to be a LDS component in the shooters background. How long before the press dredges up the Mountain Meadows Massacre? Oh, the Focus on Family (Labeled as a “hate” group by the MSM) is just up the road.

    Will they even mention the December 2007 shootings the same day at the New Life Church in Colorado Springs and an affiliate in Aurora, CO?

    As the (P)regressives scream once again for “gun control” will they ignore the shooter first came to police attention for a bomb threat? A firearm is a tool and nut jobs will always find a tool (Boston Marathon, anyone)?

    Lastly, the American Mainstream Maggots (h/t BZ) will ignore recoil operated magazine fed rifles have been available to the public since 1903.

    • A tragedy and good on the people who stopped the perp. I kinda hate to say it but I am thankful that so far the idiots that do these mass killings just use firearms. There are a lot of ways to apply enough kinetic energy to kill someone that are a lot more efficient at causing mass casualties than using a firearm. Thankfully so far the crazys have not used them.

      • Ed+Campbell
        I am of the opinion that the reason those that commit mass homicide use firearms instead of more efficient methods that are much less expensive, easier to obtain, and, as I mentioned, more efficient, is because they want to see the fear they inflict on their victims.
        This is the reason instead of run, hide, fight, my thought-out default response is violence of action ASAP.
        This, because I think there will be at least a chance that the shooter will hesitate a split second prior to the first shot to enjoy the moment of power.
        I know that during the Ft Hood shooting that multiple good guys went down while attacking the shooter, but I think there is still the chance before the first shot is fired to take action and take the shooter out.
        That is all it is…a chance.
        Oh. And stay away from crowds.
        The first rule of self defense is don’t be there…in a multitude of ways.

        • Exactly. OODA Loop in operation…Run at them,p if possible, upset their game plan. Requires maintaining situational awareness when out and about.

    • We have reached that combination of Orwellian and dystopian status where being accused of a hate crime is worse than being accused of murder.

  6. Your books are damned good! And VERY realistic (well, with the exception of Red Mist and Loki). Highly recommend all of them and thanks for boosting Peter’s and my signal a bit!!!
