The Rookie’s Guide to H.P. Lovecraft, in 1500 Words or Less

| April 2, 2013 | Reply

If I had to pick a favorite horror author, I’d go with Howard Phillips Lovecraft. His tales of horror, most often set in small-town New England (with the occasional jaunt to the Antarctic, New York City, or The Dreamlands), are enjoyable little morsels of creepiness. Lovecraft was one of several authors such as M.R. James, […]

Growing Little Patriots Together: How You Can Help Teach Children About America

| October 1, 2012 | 1 Reply

Lately, there has been a lot of focus on the fact that American kids are not learning American history. Unfortunately, doing something about it doesn’t seem to be a top priority. This could explain a lot of the problems America is facing today. We have an electorate that not only doesn’t understand America but doesn’t […]

Kurt Schlichter joined me in Episode 151 to talk about his new book, I Am a Conservative: Uncensored, Undiluted and Absolutely Un-PC, which you should all buy right away and not just because I get a small fraction of the purchase price if you use that link or because Kurt is my friend. His book […]

Ed Driscoll tipped me to his newest episode of Silicon Graffiti, and I’m glad he did. It’s a good one. His guest is the author of a book on Ayn Rand, her various tiffs with the political right, and what she might make of what’s been going on in Washington lately. The interview is nice […]

New Book Alert: “Culture of Corruption”

| July 27, 2009 | 4 Replies

Michelle Malkin, who is easily one of my five favorite bloggers in the entire universe, has a new book out called Culture of Corruption. I’ll give you a hint about her narrative — she won’t be using that phrase the same way Nancy Pelosi did. Even though I’ve not read a single page, I can […]

If you’re looking for good summer reading material, you could do worse than shopping your way through these biographies recommended by Stacy McCain. I like biographies, though I really couldn’t tell you exactly why. There is something very enjoyable about reading about how someone who achieved a certain amount of fame (or infamy) learned their […]

I’m pretty excited this morning. I received in the mail the debut book by Doug Dorst called Alive in Necropolis. You long-time readers of The Shack will recognize Doug as the guy who beat me when I appeared on Jeopardy!. He was writing his book then and hoped to get it published, so I know […]
