SYNOPSIS

Through shear dint of effort, Ronald Lump the third, now in his fourth and last term as president, had with tireless campaigning and unprecedented cooperation in both the House and the Senate, been able to whittle away at the 3% who controlled 97% of the wealth. He got it down to 1%. Worse yet, of the 47 candidates who intend to run for office to replace him none are qualified.

America was in trouble. Again.

However it is in Central Middleville, Ohio, a place where everyday life is abnormally normal, there resides a real hero. A human cog in a soulless system whose only dream is to get out of the dingy one room apartment he's lived in all his life. A savior that can possibly deliver the American people from the shackles of the two party system and the havoc it has reeked on the American landscape for so long.

Thaddeus Enoch Pervers, a lowly assembly line worker unintentionally sets out on a political adventure the likes of which could only happen in the U.S. With political absurdities unimagined in Swift’s time Thaddeus, after accidently filing out the wrong form at his local Department of Motor Vehicles, mistakenly winds up sucked up into the convoluted American political system.

Politics was never in Thaddeus' plans, but it was in his destiny. Inadvertently tossed into the political arena due to the misfiled form, Pervers is discovered by a devious group of supercentenarians who promise to buy him a senate seat if he'll act as their front man for their political interests.

The novel American Rhetoric, a dark parody of the two party system, offers a glimpse of one possible future for The United States of America.

*Politics. From the Greek 'poly' meaning many and 'tics' meaning a parasitic, blood sucking leech who lives off others.

*(Translation approximate)

Remember, remember the Fifth of November/Gunpowder, Treason and Plot
but do we really know the truth behind that most famous of attempts to blow up the Houses of Parliament? Is Guy Fawkes the evil fiend we have been led to believe he is?

In this book, dictated by Guy Fawkes himself, the reader is shown a different person, a devout, almost monkish young man who was drawn into the conspiracy through his own fanatical faith. Here is the true story of the so-called plot, Guy's unfortunate part in it, the truth about his torture and trial, and his execution.

History is about to be rewritten!

      • From jbgarner58.wordpress.com:
        
        Happy coincidence has brought a recently-released dish onto this
        reviewer’s plate today.  The chef, Michelle Knight (interviewed here),
        was already in my review queue for some time now with an older recipe
        but, as her newest book came up for sale, I decided to take up this
        newest dish instead.  So is this near-future military sci-fi with a
        side of wit and comedy make for a fabulous meal or some bland tinned
        biscuits?
        
        Before we cut open the MRE package, let us recite the Starving Review
        creed:
        
        I attempt to rate every book from the perspective of a fan of the
        genre
        I attempt to make every review as spoiler-free as possible.
        
        Here’s the rub, my literary foodies, there’s a fine line between using
        humor to flavor a serious dish and overseasoning with humor to ruin a
        dish.  Comedy, especially dark comedy, is hard.  Good comedy is even
        harder.  So, let me put this particular dog to bed and say that the
        sugary sprinkles of comedy are properly used in this piece.  There is
        a certain Doctor Strangelove sort of feel to the comedic elements, as
        well as that dry British wit to the whole affair, and it sits well in
        this Reviewer’s stomach.
        
        With that clear, let’s attack the rest of the components of this meal.
         Check Mate presents a diverse cast of characters and handles those
        characters quite well.  Even the occasional stock minor characters is
        gifted with a particular spark of flavor that makes them just a bit
        more three-dimensional.  There was obviously care taken by the chef to
        make the characters more than the title of their jobs, no matter how
        stereotypical they may seem at first blush, and that defiance of
        stereotype is appreciated.
        
        The plot takes some interesting turns in the classic recipe of
        ‘military-killer-robot-goes-haywire’ (and yes, that IS a classic by
        this point!) while keeping its feet grounded in the realm of
        near-future technology.  The initial start is a bit more mellow than I
        expected it would be.  In fact, it veers dangerously close to an
        extended info-dump, yet it wasn’t to the point of off-putting.  It was
        a thick crust of necessary exposition but, past that initial bit, the
        pacing turns into a even and consistent flow of action and events,
        leading to a rather enjoyable final course.
        
        Stylistically, Check Mate is solid.  Once it hits its stride, the
        courses come along well, properly seasoned, with dutiful wordsmithing.
         If I have any stylistic complaints, it’s the occasional slip of
        British turns-of-phrase in a distinctly American setting.  Naturally,
        most readers probably won’t catch these, as I barely did and I’m a bit
        of an Anglophile, so I don’t see this detracting from most people’s
        meals.
        
        My one real quibble with this particular meal is I wish there was a
        bit more done from the haywire military robot’s point-of-view.  Not
        much, but there were a few bits early on that gives the reader some
        flashes of what is going on and I found those particularly brilliant
        while not giving away the overarching plot.  Some more scenes like
        that I think would have added a bit of needed spice at points during
        the last half of the book (into which I can delve no deeper because
        SPOILERS!).
        
        To bring it all together, Check Mate is a tasty near-future military
        romp mixing some dark comedy with killer robots!  It’s not *quite*
        perfect, but it’s really quite good and I can gladly recommend this
        meal to any lover of science-fiction or enjoys a splash of distinctly
        British dark humor with their meals!  Remember, again, to check out
        the Starving Interview to get a glimpse into the mind behind the
        book.
        
        FINAL VERDICT: **** (A tasty near-future military romp mixing some
        dark comedy with killer robots!)  4 out of 5  (visitor)
 

SYNOPSIS

Life is a game of chess and we have been programming our computers to play it for generations; each time honing the programs to work smarter, faster, with more efficiency and higher accuracy than ever before.

A stroke of fate saw two memory cards being swapped. In a military laboratory, the most powerful game of chess ever written was accidentally loaded in to an experimental, highly agile, weaponised robot. From the moment they hit the run command, that robot had only one purpose ... to win the game...

Good Was The Day (Dorothy Davies)

The Life of John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Format: Paperback - Format B

Pages: 164

  • reviews
      • A fascinating book. If you do not already believe in channelled works
        then open your mind to the possibility and read this one!  5 out of 5 
        (Charles)

          Author reply: Thank you for your kind comment.
      • Intriging concept, well written and researched. I liked the way the
        author kept away from historical facts but presented the subjects
        thoughts & feelings on those events. Excellent read.  5 out of 5
 

SYNOPSIS

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, a man who held the ultimate powerful position and who paid the ultimate price, is still regarded as a hero by some and the last gunslinger in the west by others. Countless books, countless conspiracy theories, none of them from the man himself until now.

Good Was The Day is JFK's account of his life, leaving out the politics and concentrating, as far as possible, on his feelings about every aspect of his life - and death. It's an honest, open, totally frank look at the Kennedy experience of aiming for and then achieving the Presidency, the price paid in health, strained relationships, fraught days and nights and bright shining days and nights, when all went well and happiness was within his grasp.

Did JFK take with him one final secret to his grave or was it not such a secret and it led to that fateful day in Dallas?

Dorothy Davies has the unenviable task of channelling life stories from the great names in our history as the authors seek to put right the often-distorted history which time and bias has attached to their name. And names don't come bigger than JFK and histories don't come more fascinating than this charismatic and powerful man.

A note from Zadkiel Publishing: This is a compelling and fascinating story. There will be those who are sceptical of channelled stories such as this, and those who know they are for real – we are thrilled Dorothy chose us to publish this book and we invite you all to read it and make your own decision.

SYNOPSIS

Tidal Effects is the sequel to Gray Tide in the East, the popular alternate history of the First World War. In Gray Tide, the Germans cancel their planned invasion of Belgium in 1914, turning their armies eastward to crush Russia without interference from Great Britain or the United States. Tidal Effects picks up the story in 1923. In High Tide, the U.S. discovers that Germany is building a secret naval base on Martinique, which they acquired from France as part of the peace settlement in 1915. It is a clear challenge to U.S. control of the Western Hemisphere, but how will the isolationist, pacifism-minded American respond when the Kaiser escalates the situation to the brink of war?

In the second story, Austria-Hungary is under the thumb of its powerful neighbor, and Emperor Charles would like to find new diplomatic partners and free his country from German domination. He calls in an American newspaperman to secretly sound out allies for a new treaty organization to meet the German threat. Meanwhile the Kaiser’s agent “Wolf” is working to undermine the Dual Monarchy, by encouraging a revolution in Hungarian that will allow Germany to gobble up the new territory won by Austria in the war. Tidal Effects offers two stories filled with action, political maneuvering, treachery, spies and surprises.

Gray Tide In The East (2nd Edition) (Andrew J. Heller)

An alternate history of the First World War 

Published by Fiction4All (2017)

ISBN: 9781786951205

Subject matter: Historical Fiction, General Fiction,

Format: Paperback - Format B

Pages: 228

Dimensions: 129 x 198

Tags: World War 1, alternate history, Adolf Hitler, Winston Churchill, Eastern Front, Western Front

NO REVIEWS

 

SYNOPSIS

August 1, 1914, Berlin: Kaiser Wilhelm II cancels the German invasion of Belgium over the objections of his generals, sending his armies East against Russia instead of West to France, and sets off a chain of events that will radically change the course of modern history.

Gray Tide in the East is the best-selling counterfactual history of the First World War, if the Germans had not invaded Belgium in 1914 and thereby brought Great Britain and, eventually, the United States into the war. The carefully researched story is told by a host of real historical figures both famous (William Jennings Bryan, Winston Churchill) and obscure (Albert Dawson, Joost van Vollenhoven) and spans the globe from Washington, D.C. to Hanoi, from bloody battlefields to the secret chambers of diplomats.


AMAZON reviews for the 1st Edition:

A superbly written alternate history without aimless fantasy, but rather a meticulously researched, and completely plausible chain of events.

Highly recommended to history lovers to exercise the mind.

A great work of counter factual history. The author knows how to tell a good story. Highly recommended.

This is a well written and believable alternate history book.

NO REVIEWS

 

SYNOPSIS

"28th June, 1491 was a momentous day for England. Sadly England did not realise it at the time. I came kicking and squalling into this world, full of vigour, full of strength and hearty of lungs. God be witness to this, what was the first thing they did? Put me to the breast. Now I ask you... what chance did a man have of growing up to be indifferent to women when they did that!"

With these words his Majesty King Henry VIII, arguably the most powerful English king, strides onto the pages of this remarkable book. In conversation with the woman he believes to be the reincarnation of katherine of Aragon, he recounts the real events surrounding his six wives; his regrets, his triumphs and his disasters. In coruscating detail he relives the moment he fell in love with his brother's wife and how all that befell him and his beloved England stemmed from that moment.

By turns acerbic, witty, brutal and sensitive, Henry VIII stands revealed at last - but beware, he is not happy with how history has treated him!

Kelly's Full House (Paddy Kelly)

Published by Fiction4All (2018)

ISBN: 9781786951472

Subject matter: Humour, Historical Fiction,

Format: Paperback - Format B

Pages: 180

Dimensions: 129 x 198

NO REVIEWS

 

SYNOPSIS

They say everything comes in threes. Here’s three rib tickling tales featuring three characters in three very different time periods and situations.

Kelly’s Full House is a great short story collection that will lift your spirits and help get you through your day by dealing with some of the most taboo subjects – The Press, death and politics.

1. 127 Alden Road

It’s July 1st, 2017 in Provincetown Massachusetts, original landing place of the Pilgrims. Abigail Helmsworth, town librarian and charter member of the Ladies of New England Social Organization for Massachusetts History, (LONESOME’s for short), is doing some spring cleaning in the Herman Melville Memorial Library when she comes across a document. A document from 1775. A document apparently signed by the Big Man himself – George Washington!

The possible implications of this document are not at all lost on the town’s 2,427 residents. In just under three days 60,000 tourists will invade this Mecca of U.S. history to celebrate the Fourth of July. The document, if certified to be authentic, could mean tens of thousands in revenue for the tiny hamlet.

2. Dr. Lindsay’s Christmas

At 87 years of age Dr. Jonathan Lindsay, a Dublin native, dedicated pediatrician and devout Catholic his entire life, has just lost his wife of over sixty years and, for the first time finds himself alone on Christmas Eve, 1987.

Reluctant to return to an empty house he takes a stroll up O’Connell Street to enjoy the gaily decorated holiday ornaments, lights and displays.

3. Luck & Fame Are Four Letter Words

A new president has taken the reins, the Space Race is in full swing and the economy is at its peak since end of the war. It’s 1961 and the future looks bright.

However the entire country is not running on greased groves. Rank Publishing Ltd., in New York City is hanging on by a thread. With the advent of automated printing, a television in nearly every home and newspaper circulation up almost tenfold since the end of the war, news stories are cheaper and more readily available. The new sensation is supermarket tabloids and magazine circulation is plummeting!

Luck & Fame examines the roll luck and hype play in achieving fame because, no matter how much talent you may have, Luck and Fame are Four Letter Words.

        "I have been a history enthusiast for many years, and was frankly
        bowled over by the historical accuracy of the novel, as well as the
        effectiveness of the device used to carry the story. Historical
        fiction so often tends to be either too dry to capture one's interest
        for long, or superficial fun to read, but at the expense of historical
        accuracy. With Operation Underworld, Mr. Kelly seems to have found the
        happy medium that balances both.   
        Now of course, we are all anxiously awaiting his next historical

SYNOPSIS

February, 1942. Free China is lost, the Battle of Britain has been fought and Hitler dines in Paris. World War II is nearly three years old, however the United States resists involvement. With an invitation from the Imperial Japanese Navy at Pearl Harbor everything changes.

In her first ten months of the war nearly 500 American ships are lost. The retooling of Her factories is estimated to take at least a year, and even before it is completed, the men who work in those factories must become Marines, sailors and soldiers.

The U.S. Navy is behind the eight ball, big time. They need help. To compound their problems, the most famous luxury liner in the world, T. L. S. Normandie, has just been set alight and burned to the water-line in New York Harbor initiating wide spread hysteria in fear of German saboteurs. All originating from a misguided sense of desperation, and a well planned feign.

Meanwhile, “The Boss of Bosses”, Lucky Luciano at age 45, is serving a thirty to fifty year sentence in a maximum security prison in upstate New York.

In one of the most ironic decisions of the war, the Federal Government requests the founder of organized crime, Lucky Luciano, to join forces with America’s most secret service, Naval Intelligence. Luciano, has been sentenced to life in prison for a crime that warrants ten years, and is concurrently fighting deportation to an enemy nation where he will certainly be put to death, when he is asked to help the government who condemned him. In addition, he is told he must remain in prison with no chance for compensation or parole.

Mike ’Doc’ McKeowen, a New York P. I., leads us through the story.

Doc just wants to get his life back on track after his business partner ran off with all the top clients, and a long and painful divorce drained him of his house, his family and his dignity. Fate may have a plan for Doc, but he can’t figure out what the hell it is.

Whether you believe the link between the Federal Government and organized crime is a slender thread, or as Mario Puzo wrote, ’. . . contemporary America, where law and organized crime are one and the same.’, you will learn how the foundation of the international drug cartel was laid. You will come to appreciate the saying, ‘Due Facce della stessa Medaliglia’. Crime and politics, two sides of the same coin.

Titanic was an act of carelessness.
Lusitania was an act of war.
Normandie was an act of genius.

SYNOPSIS

In 1971 there were only three ways out of the soul-crushing, abject poverty of the Jersey City shithole of a slum they called the Duncan Avenue Federal Housing Project; prison, the military or the likely end to both – death.

In the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Billy Chance had a dream: to become a doctor.
All he’d have to do is finish high school, (something no one else in his family had ever done before), find a shit load of money, (something else no one else in his family had ever done), and get accepted to college, something no one . . . well you get the idea. After that of course he’d have to find a shit load more money, get accepted to med school and graduate.

Fortunately there was an answer to all his problems; sign up to be a Navy corpsman and volunteer for LBJ’s little party down in the South Pacific called the Viet Nam War.

Politically Erect is a novel dealing with the lighter side of mutilation, death, genocide, widespread political corruption, international conflict and potential global destruction. It’s a fiction based on actual experiences with fictionally informed political leaders who were artificially qualified to wage real war and features actual dead people.

You know, a comedy.


You can't fool all the people all of the time.
But if you do, it usually only lasts for four years.

SYNOPSIS

A four-year war has raged across the colonised worlds of The Extent. Nations reel from violence and betrayal and the Skean Republic stands alone. Despite fierce diplomatic negotiations, tensions rise while, bordering the huge region of empty space known as The Abyssal Void, the conflict threatens the nation of Akatsu.

A young, wealthy socialite and ex-assassin has grown up on Hiroshi and now lives in the famed floating city of Yori. Working for Akatsu's secretive science team, Kagaku-sha Chimu, she strives to save her planet from the hated United Colonial Systems. Accompanied by the loyal, catlike Jira, she plays a dangerous game in which her friends and her city are the potential collateral. The very future of her world is at stake.

In the middle of the Abyssal Void, at Port McKinley, Acting Captain Kurt Bergstrom is about to graduate. Young and inexperienced, he has little idea the Akatsu are preparing to strike or of the bitter price he, his friends and his family will have to pay. It will be a baptism of fire, engulfing the stars, destroying his humanity and forging him into a weapon his enemies will not soon forget.

The first of a trilogy, "Stars, Hide Your Fires" will take you to the stars: an alternate future, a galaxy collapsing into war and humans doing what humans do best.

SYNOPSIS

On January 12th, 1912 at 12 noon, 57,000 European immigrants comprised of 25 nationalities, 45 languages, (less than 10% of which spoke English), struck against one of the richest men in the world. To add to the drama, they faced a hostile governor and U. S. president, a racially motivated police force backed by the U. S. Army and the worst New England Winter on record.

Against a backdrop of wars raging in the Far East, The Balkans and North Africa, the most hotly contested U. S. election to date and unprecedented, government sponsored violence, a no-holds-barred industrial strike was launched.

In Book II of Paddy Kelly's series Building of Empire: Crime & Politics, the Cornerstone of America, the epic drama of a forgotten story in U. S. history, its Class Wars, is told through a neglected chapter, the Lawrence Mill Strike of 1912.

With the ambience and intensity of Reds and the spirit of Cabaret the story of the largest industrial action of its time, The American Way chronicles the drama of people swept up in events larger than themselves as they refused to capitulate to some of the most powerful men on the face of the planet.

The American Way is the true story of what European immigrants endured in burgeoning industrial America. Played out in seven weeks, in the dead of the worst New England winter in half a century, the story of this historic struggle invites you to come to America, land of the free. Home of the brave.

Where the streets are paved with blood.

      • Fascinating story. Some very different insights to other books I've
        read about this King. Will have to read more by this author to
        understand whether this is knowledge or a gift she has a Medium - on
        I'd like to believe the Queens have really been having their say on
        matters, at last!  5 out of 5  (Devlin)
 

SYNOPSIS

Channelling their own words through the author, each of Henry VIII’s Queens takes it in turn to portray the King in a somewhat different light to what you may have already heard or read.

From Katherine to Katherine – the ladies have their say about Henry: the lies, the facts, the reality of being Queen of England and consort to His Majesty King Henry VIII.

Author Dorothy Davies is a well-known and respected Medium, who has channelled the words of many characters – some famous, some not so. In this, her latest work, we garner refreshing insights into the life in the Court of King Henry VIII and the fates of those unlucky enough to have fallen in love (or into bed) with him!
