What if . . . ?

What if an infamous presidential assassin lost his nerve at the crucial moment? What if a torrid affair between coworkers edged the adulterous couple closer to a terrible death? What if a desperate man and his alluring psychologist found that they shared a mysterious telepathic link? What would two men plotting a horrific act say to one another over breakfast? How might a gang of devious revolutionaries undermine a corrupt culture from within?

Find out in Lost Violent Souls, a collection of intense and provocative short stories by Andy Nowicki, author of The Columbine Pilgrim and Under the Nihil. In uncompromising prose that recalls Dostoyevsky and Flannery O’Connor, Nowicki takes aim at modern nihilism, tracing different routes to spiritual sustenance—from “senseless” violence to suicide—in a world bereft of meaning. Includes “Oswald Takes Aim,” the acclaimed JFK assassination counterfactual tale, and “The Wooden Buddha,” an unsettling exploration of the psychic devastation wrought by abortion, miscarriage, and barrenness.

Praise for Lost Violent Souls:

“The five death-haunted stories in this collection all address the oldest and utmost question of the human mind—why live? I am aware of no writer, or at least none since Dostoevsky, who has confronted this everlasting issue with more resolve (and more intelligence!) than this one.”

                              —Tito Perdue, author Morning Crafts and The Node

“In a galaxy far, far too here there was a fluctuating mess of a publishing industry where passionless shit floated to the top and having an actual opinion about anything made you a prole moron. Andy Nowicki is rapidly sinking to the bottom of this particular galaxy-toilet along with everything else of substance, weighted by a black hole’s worth of brilliant prose, angrily wielded. If Edgar Allan Poe had been more forthcoming about his masturbatory habits, he might have written something like this collection of eloquently agony-riddled pleas for sanity.”

—Ann Sterzinger, author of NVSQVAM (nowhere)

“Andy Nowicki excels as a writer precisely because despite his ideological biases, he can step outside of his own life and imagine what the world looks like from the perspective of people completely unlike himself. Additionally, Nowicki realizes that even in the most evil person imaginable, there is a flicker of goodness, a chance of regaining God’s grace. It is this hope of salvation, no matter how tiny and remote, that gives his fiction pathos and makes his characters believable.”

—Matt Forney, author of Trolling for a Living

    Disregard all elaborate conspiracy theories regarding Oswald. Oswald shot JFK, and then Shot Officer Tippit. It really is that simple!

    I read Motel Man. Absurd. Pointless. Why did he kill himself when he could do so much good by ridding the system of at least some of the poison before hand? There was no moral. Wasted time. Is Andy N so depressed that he thinks this helps?

    With respect to the issue of rightist arts/culture, this may be of interest:

    It would be interesting to see an attempt to incorporate a far-right culture of the arts with the ideas of Kurtagic and Murros regarding “style.” I myself am more inclined to Futurist/avante garde themes rather than the Traditionalist, but a variety of styles can be studied and subjected to experiment.

    Indeed, a range of styles can and should be utilized, each appealing to varied audiences within the far-right framework.

    Great to see you doing interviews again.

    On the JFK issue, I dare say that quite a few things point to Israel. For one, JFK cracked down hard on the American Zionist Council, forcing them to register as a foreign agent. When the AZC reorganized itself as AIPAC, Lyndon B. Johnson kept Robert Kennedy from harming that organization.

    According to Mearsheimer & Walt’s book on the Israel Lobby, JFK was also getting in the way of Israel’s nuclear program.

    And then of course, as Greg pointed out, Oswald was killed by a Jew before he could talk about the affair.
