New Release: The Smear by Sharyl Attkisson

Dissecting #FakeNews

Award-winning investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson exposes the anatomy of "Fake News" in her new book, The Smear: How Shady Political Operatives and Fake News Control What You See, What You Think, and How You Vote.

Here's the blurb:
Ever wonder how politics turned into a take-no-prisoners blood sport? The New York Times bestselling author of Stonewalled pulls back the curtain on the shady world of opposition research and reveals the dirty tricks those in power use to influence your opinions.

Behind most major political stories in the modern era, there is an agenda; an effort by opposition researchers, spin doctors, and outside interests to destroy an idea or a person. The tactic they use is the Smear. Every day, Americans are influenced by the Smear without knowing it. Paid forces cleverly shape virtually every image you cross. Maybe you read that Donald Trump is a racist misogynist, or saw someone on the news mocking the Bernie Sanders campaign. The trick of the Smear is that it is often based on some shred of truth, but these media-driven "hit pieces" are designed to obscure the truth. Success hinges on the Smear artist’s ability to remain invisible; to make it seem as if their work is neither calculated nor scripted. It must appear to be precisely what it is not.

Veteran journalist Sharyl Attkisson has witnessed this practice firsthand. After years of being pitched hit jobs and puff pieces, she’s an expert at detecting Smear campaigns. Now, the hard-hitting investigative reporter shares her inside knowledge, revealing how the Smear takes shape and who its perpetrators are—including Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal and, most influential of all, "right-wing assassin turned left-wing assassin" (National Review) political operative David Brock and his Media Matters for America empire.

Attkisson exposes the diabolical tactics of Smear artists, and their outrageous access to the biggest names in political media—operatives who are corrupting the political process, and discouraging widespread citizen involvement in our democracy.

Attkisson is also the author of the best-welling book Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama's Washington.

New Release Review: A Rambling Wreck by Hans G. Schantz

Georgia Tech Alt-Hist Thriller

I just finished a great book, A Rambling Wreck by Hans G. Schantz. It's the sequel to The Hidden Truth. You can tell from my review last year that I really enjoyed the first book, but I think this sequel is even better.

Here's the blurb:
He's a Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech!

Off to college for the education he'll need to defeat the guardians of the hidden truth, Peter must infiltrate a deadly conspiracy, thwart an attempted social justice takeover of the school, save his professors from assassination, and somehow find time to study for finals.

The stakes are now higher than ever. To succeed, Peter must discover who burned down the Tolliver Library, find new allies in his fight, and secure the assistance of the legendary George P. Burdell himself.

The story picks up a year after the first book. Peter is now a freshman at Georgia Tech, where he and Amit land straight in the Social Justice Warriors incubator. They have to camouflage themselves while continuing their dangerous mission to uncover and defeat the machinations of the Civic Circle.

In their digging, they uncover even deeper secrets and come up against unexpected new players, including Chinese triads (cool) and a centuries old secret order (super cool). Throw in a Snape-like professor and a fair damsel in distress and sudden revelations about allies and it all adds up to a high-stakes suspense thriller.

I am not quite sure how the author does it, but once again he's made physics (alternate) history intriguing. And I really like how he handles Peter and Amit's college experience - they feel like college kids, and at the same time we get a clear picture of the SJW college infestation that seems very much drawn from the real world.

This is really such an original series of books that it's hard to describe it properly. Like Da Vinci Code meets Harry Potter meets Cryptonomicon by way of Michael Crichton. The author really knows his science and tech AND can spin a fantastic tale.

Highly recommended.

FREE: Hall of Heroes: A Fellowship of Fantasy Anthology

FREE New Fantasy Anthology

Hall of Heroes is a new anthology of heroic fantasy stories that is currently 100% FREE. Got a heads up on this from Frank Luke, author of the new Christian fantasy Rebirths: A Tale of Azuran, who has an Arthurian story in this collection.

Here's the blurb:
Twenty-Seven Thrilling Tales from Amazing Fantasy Authors!

Whether they are unwitting, plucky, or just plain epic, heroes capture the imagination and rescue us from everyday life. With stories set in fantastic, magical realms, gritty urban landscapes, and fairytale kingdoms, our heroes stand fast as defenders of good. Struggling against evil governments, wicked demi-gods, wrathful nature, supernatural con-men, and their own insecurities, each must find the strength to triumph and the will to persevere.

In the second anthology from the Fellowship of Fantasy, twenty-three authors explore the theme of heroes, covering genres ranging from steampunk and fairytale to urban and Arthurian. These are the heroes you've been waiting for.

Enjoy Heroes: A Fellowship of Fantasy Anthology and join the adventures!
