Interview with Hitler: An Educational Parody

by M King

206 Pages / 500 Illustrations

The following “interview”, though obviously a fictional event, accurately portrays what the ghost of Adolf Hitler would say in his defense if he could be interviewed today. His “answers” to WCBC talk-show host Ogre Winfield’s questions are mostly based upon an extensive and careful reading of his writings and speeches from 1921-1945, as well as those of his inner circle and others who knew him and survived the war.

One is at liberty to reflexively dismiss the veracity or accuracy of Hitler’s version of events if one so chooses. However, what cannot be disputed is this: Hitler’s responses to Ogre’s questions truly represent what he would say if such an interview could take place. Indeed, some of Hitler’s answers are direct quotes taken from his own speeches and writings. So if Hitler’s account does not please you, take it up with him.

In regard to the fictional Ogre’s reaction, admittedly “artistic license” was taken there. But as for the portrayal of Hitler’s point of view, there can be no dispute. If such a made-for-TV event were possible, it would surely be the most watched show in broadcast history. You know you would watch it! Now, here is your chance.

Don’t let the whimsical setting of Interview with Hitler distract you too much, for this is utterly serious and scholarly history. For a more in-depth and fully sourced understanding of World War II, The Bad War (also by M S King) is recommended as a companion book to Interview with Hitler.

Enjoy the show.

Resurrection of Dead Presidents: A Monstrous Truth

by M. Glenn Baxter

A ghost story where dead Presidents and others meet in the Whitehouse Oval Office to discuss their demise, events from the past and present. Thomas Jefferson’ spirit speaks for the 56 founders and signors of The Declaration of Independence. President John F.Kennedy proceeds over the meeting with Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Jackson, Ronald Reagan, Woodrow Wilson and other distinguished spirits. The Archangel Angel crashes the meeting bringing 57 ghoulish bloody ghosts with bullets holes, stab wounds. decapitation and charred bodies to reveal their stories to the dead Presidents and other soul. The entire meeting brings forth monstrous truths that people will not believe. J. Edgar Hoover quote, “The individual comes face-to-face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exist. The American mind has not come to a realization of the evil which has been introduced into our midst. It rejects even the assumption that human creatures could expouse a philosophy which must ultimately destroy all that is good and decent.

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and the Cosmic Christ (A Handful of Catholics Book 1)

by Alex Terego

“Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.”
~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin was born into minor French nobility in the Château of Sarcenat at Orcines, close to Clermont-Ferrand in the Auvergne Region, in South Central France on May 15th 1881. He was the fourth of eleven children. His father was an avid amateur scientist and collected geological specimens and encouraged observation of the natural world in his son. From his mother Pierre inherited an intense, religious, even pious, nature. From his father he inherited a questioning inquisitive scientific mind that was to lead to trouble with his beloved Church.

About the Handful of Catholics series:

It is my intention in this series of books to do no more than introduce the reader to some Catholic thinkers, Catholic doers, those whose Catholic faith was a work in progress and mystics; both converts and cradle Catholics. Very little of this work is original; it is mostly a distillation of the work of others who have devoted years of their lives to the lives of these women and men. It is not meant to be hagiography or the last word on the subject. Rather its simple goal is to make you want to delve further.

Over the past six decades, ever since a Salesian priest told me that in order to make sense of history read about the actors, I have read the biographies of a large number of men and women, both secular and religious. The five potted biographies in this first volume are of people I consider to be somewhat overlooked in the annals of Catholic writings, and all of whom are compelling in different ways – as I hope you will see.

The Armadillo, the Pickaxe, and the Laundry Basket

by Lori Duff

Author’s Note: “The Armadillo, the Pickaxe, and the Laundry Basket” is not a work of fiction. Neither is it a work of fact, at least not entirely. It is mostly true, and mostly harmless. Most people named are who I say they are. Some names and situations have been slightly altered to protect the privacy of the people whose stories I have stolen, more or less always with permission. Some situations have been exaggerated for effect, or tweaked a little bit, if I thought they were funnier exaggerated or tweaked. No animals were harmed in the making of this book, except maybe the armadillo, who was mostly just terrified. But that’s ok – so was I.

Author Pretending to be a Publicist’s Note: Lori B. Duff has been hailed as the funniest woman to ever put pen to paper, sometimes even by people who aren’t her Mom. Her work has been compared (again, not by her Mom) to Erma Bombeck and David Sedaris. This book is her second collection of humorous essays.

La maleta del emigrante (Spanish Edition)

by Carmen Graña Barreiro

“(â?¦) Quizá sean ideas mías, abuelo, pero siento que este diciembre de aquí no es totalmente mío como el de allá. Aquí nada es mío, como si estuviera siempre de visita. Doña Francisquita dice que eso es así al principio pero después echamos raíces y ya nos sentimos como en casa. ¿Después cuándo, abuelo? ¿Después de qué? (â?¦)”.
Así le escribía una niña de diez años al abuelo que la despidiera en la aldea. Es que los sueños de los pequeños emigrantes no estaban adelante, como los de sus padres. Quedaban atrás, desdibujándose, muriendo en el adiós. Al llegar al nuevo mundo tenían que reinventarse, y no estaban preparados.
“(â?¦) ¿Se acuerda cuando usted me decía que yo siempre andaba papando moscas, y yo le contestaba que no era eso sino que estaba buscando sueños, como hacía el niño de aquel libro que me regalara el tío Juan? Bueno, pues ahora sí que ando papando moscas porque los sueños no los encuentro (â?¦)”.
En el poso de la memoria de América quedarán para siempre recuerdos y leyendas ancestrales escuchadas al calor del lar en las cocinas gallegas.
Quedarán, también, las maletas que subyacen en el alma de cada emigrante.

Silent Drums: Adapt, Improvise, Overcome!

by Pam Daniels

“Silent Drums: Adapt, Improvise, Overcome!” tells the true 73 yearlong (so far) life struggle of a loving husband who also happens to be a decorated gay Vietnam War combat Marine afflicted with terminal cancer caused by his exposure to “Agent Orange.” My good friend Bob LeBlanc’s life as told in my non-fiction account, which reads like a novel, personalizes the fight for full LGBT equality as it informs, enlightens and entertains by taking you inside the extreme injustice that all of us in my LGBT community are forced to endure.

Bob’s personal journey spans the entire length of today’s LGBT civil rights movement and directly involves U. S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, first in 1975 as a judge on the 9th circuit court of appeals when Kennedy intervened in Bob’s case against the Marine Corps then again in Kennedy’s SCOTUS decisions in 2013 and 2015 on marriage equality.

“Silent Drums” is not a war story as the book also chronicles the challenges faced by Bob’s partner, now husband, Julio, who only recently was granted legal immigration status, a process that is considerably less complicated for heterosexual couples.

The final chapter of “Silent Drums” seeks a presidential pardon for Bob’s conviction in a case brought by a bigoted commanding officer who was upset with Judge Kennedy’s issuance of the above mentioned restraining order. The Judge in this case refused to punish Bob and the Prosecutor offered to sign Bob’s reenlistment papers when the bigoted CO refused his signature.

I hope you purchase “Silent Drums” but if you don’t, please sign this online petition supporting my request for a presidential pardon?

by Kevin Armstrong

Young Timothy is devastated when he is given the sack from the Silver Dollar Restaurant where he has been happily working as a waiter. How will he pay his rent? If he can’t come up with the money he faces a grim choice – give Marty his repulsive landlord sexual favours or be tossed out in the street by hired thugs.

Whilst working at the restaurant Timothy found that he was falling on love with his boss’s son, the stunningly beautiful Francisco. However he’s realized it is all to no avail because the boy is straight – or is he?

Tim is perplexed when one night Francisco turns up on his doorstep wearing a backpack and asks he can move in. He is even more amazed when the boy, without further ado, starts to masturbate in the living room whilst watching a soapie on television.

â??The Rent Boy’ is number eight in the GAY MOMENTS series. It may be read as a stand-alone story.

When he is not working he loves to spend time in Malaysia or Myanmar with his Burmese boy.

â??The Rent Boy’ contains episodes of steamy gay sex. It is not for the faint-hearted.

Approximately 23,000 words.
