Cautionary note:

STOP THE WAR is less racy and risky than POOR NO MORE and IT WAS A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT. I didn’t want to scare agents and publishers off with too daring a book, especially when it’s already seditious as all get out. That worked. Or seemed to.

I found a publisher who wanted STOP THE WAR,  and nine more just like it. That publisher turned into a dick the minute the contract was signed. Fortunately, he breached the contract by not publishing on schedule, so I dumped his sorry ass and got on with things.

By then I was well into POOR NO MORE, secure in the knowledge that I had a ten book deal with a publisher who didn’t want to touch so much as a word of book 1. So I got down to writing in a style that I prefer. By the time I got to book 3, the pedal was pinned to the metal.

That is not to say book 1 is not fun, funny, smart and dangerous; it’s just a little less so than the other two. The first person who read the trilogy said that book 1 is the Simpsons,


whereas books 2 and 3 are South Park.


I’ll go with that. But I will add that there are some nice fat slices of Beavis and Butthead


in books 2 and 3.

Ah, but that’s for me to say and you to judge.
