Buy My Books...

... put food on my table... send them as gifts!

"Tell Me Your Story" (Paperback)
"A slight change of circumstance led to the Nazis winning the war and eventually ruling the world. One result was the firm institutionalization of experimentation on 'subhumans'. Now, people who oppose this government-sponsored science are labeled enemies of the State."

Monsters and Pygmies (Paperback)
"Children imagine that monsters lurk under the bed or in the closet. We keep the nightlight burning because we know instinctually that monsters are afraid of the light. But real monsters are all around us, snatching up the weak and powerless, children and animals, torturing them, killing them. But we were right: monsters are afraid of the light. In the case of real monsters, it is the light of public scrutiny that they fear. They can be defeated; public education is a stake that can be driven into their cruel hearts. Learning the details of what goes on in the animal labs, on the farms, in the slaughterhouses, and telling others about it, shines a light on the dirty deeds being performed out of sight. The people doing these things don't want to discuss the details in public. But we can shine a light so bright that everyone will have to look. Monsters and Pygmies might be the spark that will light your torch."

Vegan Nation (Paperback)
"President Abraham Lincoln believed that slavery would not end for at least a century. Abolitionist John Brown's campaign of terrorism against the South shortened this to seven years. Brown began his campaign in 1856, was caught and hanged in 1859, and the Emancipation Proclamation was signed in 1863. John Brown has been called 'The man who killed slavery, sparked the Civil War, and seeded civil rights.' Today, when people lawfully protest against cruelty they are characterized as terrorists by the industry and its supporters. What might happen if one of them really really did embrace terrorism?"
