Beyond the Bush

BeyondtheBush1,321 words

Robert Ignatius Dillon
Beyond the Bush: A Hopeless Satire
Chicago: Hopeless Books, 2013

Beyond the Bush is the third release from Ann Sterzinger’s Hopeless Books, and the first not from her own pen. Like Sterzinger’s own The Talkative Corpse [1] it reveals its Chicago origins by the frequent use of various derivatives of ‘jag-off’, and one might be tempted to christen it part of a ‘jag off lit’ movement, did it not sound so entirely like I was dismissing it as desultory and self-indulgent.  Read more …

In the fourth week of the Counter-Currents 2014 Summer Fundraiser, we received 10 donations totaling $1,045. Donations ranged in amount from $10 to $300.

Hitler: The Adjournment

SouthgateNovel1,981 words

Troy Southgate
Hitler: The Adjournment
Guildford, U.K.: Iron Sky Publishing, 2010

Reading this book right after Timur Vermes’s Look Who’s Back (reviewed here) was quite a revealing experience. Although superficially in the same “What if Hitler . . .” genre as Look Who’s Back, Troy Southgate’s Hitler: The Adjournment is quite different, but not in a good way. In fact, the two books differ in almost every respect, providing a sort of Goofus and Gallant guide to how to write, or not write, Hitler fiction.  Read more …
