Help Save Endangered Satirists!

Political satire has been particularly valuable in challenging the seemingly
lockstep wartime outlook, reminding us that even in dire times
it is always prudent to question authority.

- Paul Lewis -
Boston College English professor
editorial board member, International Journal of Humor Research

My way of joking is to tell the truth. It is the funniest joke in the world.

Jonathan Swift

I said there was a society of men among us, bred up from their youth in the art of proving by words multiplied for the purpose, that white is black, and black is white, according as they are paid. To this society all the rest of the people are as slaves.

- Jonathan Swift -

Too late! Dead!


It is dangerous to be right when
the government is wrong.

- Voltaire -

Too late! Dead!
Denied religious burial,
body stolen by religious
rightists and dumped
in garbage heap.


Bierce Disappears

The slightest acquaintance with history shows that powerful republics are
the most warlike and
unscrupulous of nations.

- Ambrose Bierce -

Too late! Gone!

Mysteriously disappeared.


Mark Twain

Most people are bothered by those passages of Scripture they do not understand, but the passages that bother me are those I do understand.

- Mark Twain -

Too late! Dead!

Hounded by creditors.

The Book

Thank you for appreciating my work. You can read selected chapters here: Kansas, Witch’s Castle, Poppy Fields, Ruby Slippers, Haunted Forest and Heaven Without Dying.

This book is out of print. Amazon is now selling used copies for $35-$40, far above the initial retail price. No shipping.

I have several dozen mint copies of this 615-page paperback. While they last, I’m selling them for $45 including shipping in the U.S.

I would be happy to autograph your copy.

And I will be delighted if you sweeten the pot with a donation to help cover the website hosting and design costs of my free websites.
