Tooting the Horn

Actually, just quoting some Amazon reviewers who tooted for me. “Author Hank Brown has created quite the enduring cast of characters here. …Heckuva Ride!” “Pulp Fiction is back with a vengeance! It is truly a must read in the genre, or in any genre.” “This was a fantastic read with plenty of action. The characters […]

What’s Happening at Amazon?

PJ Media reports on a purge of reviews that seems to be calculated to hurt the livelihood of non-leftist authors. “I asked several independent authors about the review losses when it occurred,” Del Arroz told PJM. “My left-wing author contacts said they didn’t lose any reviews, but the right-wing authors who are members of a […]

Tipping at Windmills and Men’s Adventure

As a young paratrooper back in the day, there were many times when I wanted to escape from everything that reminded me of my job. But there were other times when I couldn’t get enough. Literarily (is that a word?) speaking, I was probably spoiled. All around Fort Bragg, it was easy to find stuff […]

Weapons Malfunctions are Such a Bloody Nuisance

By the time everyone was buckled in, the chopper was rocking and bouncing in place like a hyper child on a trampoline. With the clock ticking toward the call to prayer, it seemed to take years for it to finally lift off. The wind from the rotors kicked up a dust storm all around the […]

Scramble Hot

The truck bounced around the corner toward the checkpoint. Leon Campbell yawned and stretched, rolling over to the prone and getting behind his rifle, still resting on its bipod. He keyed his radio mike. “One truck. Two bodies—driver and passenger. Tarp coverin’ somethin’ in the truck bed.” His voice spoke in a marble-mouth Georgia drawl. […]

What’s the Difference Between an Illegal Semi-Automatic and an Illegal Full-Automatic Weapon?

Read this excerpt from Tier Zero to find out. Two vessels knifed through the waves, away from the port and out to open sea. The Barbara Gee was a recreational trawler, and the Tinseltown was a diving support craft once used for underwater cinematography, as well as towing robot sharks and other sea monsters. It […]

Stick It to Big Brother

Below is a link to the petition for the Internet Bill of Rights. If you want to stop the Leftist Thought Police from censoring everything that doesn’t agree with their Narrative, you really need to get on board. Do you want a few monopolies like Goolag, FascistBorg and Twatter to determine what information can […]

Alternate Covers For Tier Zero

I could use some feedback on these covers. I plan on replacing my cool retro-men’s adventure cover for the E-book version of Tier Zero…at least temporarily. Here’s Alternative 1: And here’s Alternative 2: I’m having trouble deciding which I like better. Any constructive criticism would be helpful. Shouldthe font be more like it is in […]

All the Deep State’s Men

Layer after layer of corruption and abuse are being peeled back from the political swamp in Washington, proving what some have suspected for a long time: that the US government–nominally of the people, for the people, and by the people–has been hijacked. The hijacking took place a long time ago, but sadly, the truth would […]

Jerome Corsi Interviewed About “Q Anon” and the FISA Memo

The “mainstream” (left-wing lapdog) media first tried to convince their audience that the FISA memo was a “threat to the rule of law” (as if they care about that), would undermine the fabric of our “democracy,” etc. Notice how, once the memo was released, the Spin Machine reversed gears and now tries to convince you […]

You can view a scan of the document here. Here’s a summary (because the document is in pseudo-legalese): The Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee, using shells or front companies, paid to have former a British spy and anti-Trump fanatic fabricate a story that would malign Trump’s character during the 2016 campaign. He put […]

The Exception – a Review

Coincident with the German blitzkrieg into France, Heinrich Himmler assigns a special detail to “protect” Wilhelm Hohenzollern, the former Kaiser of the Second Reich, who is exiled in Holland. The assignment is passed down to young Captain Brandt, a veteran of the Poland Campaign who was wounded winning the Iron Cross, but also got on […]

Marco Polo – a Review

Even the most fanatic revisionist white knights couldn’t ruin a story set in the Mongol Empire during the conquest of south China, right? Ahem. I wish I could say I’m surprised by what they’ve done with the subject matter. First off is the main character, Marco Polo. His motivations are sketchy at best, beyond some […]

Birth of the Dragon – a Review

This film was inspired by the fabled showdown between Bruce Lee and Wong Jack Man. I was only vaguely familiar with the story; and only as told from the perspective of Lee and his legions of devoted fans. But there is controversy surrounding not only the outcome of the fight; but why it took place. […]

Pick Up Your Sickle Sword, Follow Me…

I’m the Bronze Age infantry. Tribal shock troops Patch on my shoulder… Free for the Amazon Kindle right now: the new epic fantasy novel Gods & Proxies. This is not yet another Tolkien wannabe book. And, like other Virtual Pulp titles, it eschews the “strong female character” and all the accompanying feminist tropes which are […]

Gangster Land – a Review

It would be difficult to count all the movies that have been set during the prohibition era. Yet for some reason, it seems like all of them are set at the end–usually around the Stock Market crash. It’s nice to see one that kicks off in the early days. The story bears only superficial resemblance […]

War For the Planet of the Apes – a Review

First of all, the title is a bit deceptive. There is a war brewing between apes and men–like it was in the last movie or two, but this one doesn’t depict a war. There is a cheesy firefight scene at the end, and an ambush of sorts at the very beginning, and that’s about the […]

“Another Excellent Novel”

There are downsides to having a bestseller. It gives your book more exposure, which is certainly a net gain; but it also draws plenty of wild cards. As in all businesses, customers are probably about 75% more determined to make their opinions known when they have a complaint than when they find a product satisfactory. […]

Justice League – A Review

Last year I reviewed Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice and opined on the possibility that the next DC team-up blockbuster might be a formulaic clone of the other superhero movies (of which, the Marvel flicks have rather defined the cookie-cutter). Well, it happened. Some god-like supervillain wants to control/destroy Earth (domination and destruction are interchangeable in […]

Astounding Frontiers

The folks at Superversive have been putting together an electronic sci-fi periodical that has loads of potential. I read some Amazon reviews and was surprised (yet again) at how different mainstream tastes are from mine: A few different people mentioned their dislike of serial adventures; while I find it pretty cool. At least some of […]
