‘Appalling 2’ Confirms Craving for Conservative Tales

Christian Toto of Hollywood in Toto interviewed me about the brand new Appalling Stories 2: More Appalling Tales of Social Injustice. Here it is!

Movies, TV shows, music and books increasingly feature progressive views.
Heck, visit and you’ll see a steady flow of programming asking audiences to think, and vote, a certain way. Take the most recent “Murphy Brown”episode, or virtually any from the low-rated reboot.
The team behind “Appalling Stories” offered something different. The 2017 book featured tales that mocked Leftist tropes. The sequel, “Appalling Stories 2: More Appalling Tales of Social Injustice,” shares even more examples of what happens when artists tweak liberal groupthink.
HiT reached out to Paul Hair, who co-wrote the first book and contributes an original story to the new anthology, about the cultural forces behind this sequel. NOTE: This reporter penned the book’s foreword…

‘Appalling Stories 2’: More Gritty, Fun Fiction You’ll Love Reading!

The sequel to Appalling Stories is here, and David Dubrow, Ray Zacek, and yours truly have returned for it. But we have more great authors joining us.

Why you go work for the biggest abortion group in the world. Only things turn out a little differently than what the heroine, or most anyone else, was expecting.

Take It Back

This flash fiction story is set in the same universe as the previous tales (“The End of the New York Times” and “Cannon Fodder”). Since this is the third story taking place in the same universe, I decided to give it a name. And I decided to be very creative about it. I’m calling it, The President universe.
The latest entry again features a plot about journalists’ War on America. And it again features President Edmonds’ efforts in fighting back.
Here now, in 1,000 words or less, is “Take It Back.”
“You really think you’re going to get away with rejecting a judge’s order?” Craig asked President Antonio Edmonds, the two on opposite sides of the imposing desk.
“An order to give CNN full access to the White House and me at all times? You bet I am.”
Craig shook his head. “Between this and what you did to The New York Times, it’s no wonder everyone is clamoring for our heads.”
“That’s just it,” Edmonds said. “Everyone isn’t clamoring for our heads. But journalists want everyone to bel…
