Types of Courage

"Free soloists don't use any ropes or other gear—their skill is their only protection."

1,784 words

Courage—especially social courage—and adventure or thrill-seeking are not the same thing.

Courage is a quality most needed by members of the white racial movement. Conviction and the strength and spirit to stand up to totalitarian authorities and the crowd (often a lynch mob) are more important by far than conventionally “brave” danger-seeking traits.

Whites as a group rank high on the adventure/thrill-seeking scale, but true courage is in short supply. Read more …

Robert E. Howard’s “Rogues in the House”

1,251 words

In this essay I shall seek to pick out a few themes from Robert E. Howard’s writing life, using one of his most emblematic stories, “Rogues in the House,” as a living illustration.

Howard certainly had (or imagined that he did) strong Irish roots which influenced much of his fiction in a Celtic direction. One only has to look at the nature of the Nemedian chronicles in the Conan mythos to see this. Read more …

Solomon Kane & Robert E. Howard

1,090 words

This review will look at Robert E. Howard’s second most important hero to Conan the Barbarian—namely, the puritan hero Solomon Kane. Kane could have been a more ideological hero than Conan, yet the stories themselves don’t read that way.

For the purposes of analysis, I shall be looking at a curiosity that was published in 1968 by a hitherto obscure house called Peter Haddock limited. The volume, entitled The Hand of Kane, bears the imprimatur of Glenn Lord, the then executor for the Howard estate and was printed in Hungary (behind the Iron Curtain) to reduce printing costs.

The Archaic Future

1,117 words

In Archeofuturism, Guillaume Faye envisions a future world that simultaneously embraces both the latest advances in science and technology, and the values and worldview of Homer and ancient myths. A world that is profoundly inegalitarian, in which might makes right, but in which might now includes the powers of science. Read more …

Atlantis & the Death of the American Myth

1,230 words

On Friday, July 8, 2011, the 135th and last-ever space shuttle mission, carried out by the shuttle Atlantis, is being launched. What many Americans don’t seem to realize yet is that this effectively marks the end of a half-century of America’s adventure into space which began with John F. Kennedy’s call for America to land men on the Moon in his famous 1961 speech. Read more …

North Face:
The Return of the German Mountain Film

6,841 words

North Face is the English title of the film Nordwand, originally released to theaters in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland in 2008.

Aviation, the Cosmos, & the Future of Man

2,403 words

Aviation and astronautics were once my prime interests. As a student pilot, at the age of 20, when aviation was much more dangerous than it is today, I concluded that if I could fly for ten years before being killed in a crash, I would be willing to trade an ordinary lifetime for that experience. In the ’30s, I assisted Robert Goddard, the father of spatial conquests. Read more …

The Untold Tragedy of the Endurance Epic

London: Pimlico, 2001

The heroic age of Antarctic exploration ended with Ernest Shackleton’s Endurance expedition of 1914–1916.
