Terror Nation

I like Terror Nation because I think it would be cool to be a small town sports reporter who was put into the local mental institution for writing anti-Bush letters to the editor. And a dream of mine would be to cover Iowa sports or coach baseball and have that be good enough.

"Palecek is ... a natural — or highly practiced — writer. With his rolling rhythms, everything he writes, even Charlie Johnson's brutal confinement goes down easy."
- Russ Wellen, Intervention Magazine

The American Dream

I like The American Dream because it's like punching America in the nose, it's like punching George W. Bush in the nose and Karl Rove in the nose. And I think those two pussies need to be punched in the nose. And it punches those ministers with American flags and dead children on their altar, and it punches my neighbor right square in the kisser for mowing his lawn and worrying about his damn lawn while we are killing children in Iraq. Here, WATCH THIS and you might get a taste of the book. Paperback: 174 Pages

The Last Liberal Outlaw

I like Outlaw because it talks about a reporter in a small town doing what a reporter in a small town should do, pay attention to the commas and oppose the construction of the prison near town. Paperback: 320 pages

Looking for Bigfoot

I like Bigfoot because I think there is a Bigfoot and I think Bush did 9/11 and I think the CIA killed the Kennedys, and I like baseball, a lot. Paperback.

The Truth

I like The Truth because it was written in the run-up to the current war and was written in a rage against pre-war stupidity in Iowa. I tried to stop the war with this book. I tried to expose the lies, stuff a dish towel in Tom Brokaw's mouth to keep him from lying.

"The disruptive power of The Truth, intermittent as hailstorms along Tornado Alley, will move your jaded self out of the shopping malls and into the streets to demand accountability from an illegal government. If you don't get down on your knees and beg for forgiveness after reading pages 183-185, you've already purchased a post and chain in the inner circle of Hell."- Michael Annis, senior editor, Howling Dog Press.

Twins

I like Twins because it talks about a prison burning and about the Twin Cities, which I love, and about robbing Twin Cities banks to give the money to the poor on Hennepin Ave.

Killing George Bush

I like KGB because it tells the forgotten story of prisoners and conspiracy theorists and people slaughtered by Bush Sr. in Panama and women and children in jail visiting rooms and other stuff.

Joe Coffee's Revolution

I like Joe Coffee because it tells the truth about the Democratic Party and about farmer revolutionaries and farm kitchen tables.

Iowa Terror

I like Iowa Terror because I think we should abolish Homeland Security. It is an unholy lie. We should let anyone into this country who wants to come in. The real terrorists are in the White House.


Guests of the Nation

It's a good book. Buy it.


Cost of Freedom

Cost of Freedom"Are you civically indifferent to officialdom’s criminality and brutality against the powerless and defenseless, against children, mothers and fathers, against our constitution and other laws of the land? If this collection of passionate and rational prose, poetry, photographs and quotes from our courageous forebears does not stir you to join with other patriots for democractic actions and restorations, you are indeed civically inactive. And that’s no way to be self-respectful!" — Ralph Nader

“There is good reason to have at your disposal things that remind you of things as they are. Cost of Freedom is a perfect candidate; it does more than remind: it also informs.” -– Harry Belafonte

"This varied and exciting collection graphically reveals the vitality and expanse of the popular movements opposing violence and criminal ventures abroad. It should inspire many more to join in these efforts to create a powerful force of concerned citizens that cannot be ignored, and that will help shape a much more hopeful and decent future." — Noam Chomsky

"Cost of Freedom is a beautiful, accessible, and meaningful history of recent American anti-war movements that should be on the coffee tables of every American home." — Thom Hartmann, Air America
