Stop the Campaign!

Campaign!: The 1983 Election That Rocked Chicago by Peter NolanAnd now a message from our friend and author, Peter Nolan:

Have you grown weary of this early presidential election cycle? A little tired of Trump, Dr. Ben, Hillary, Bernie and the others? Are the relentless and repetitious cable news networks getting you down? And yet you’re still a political junkie. Take a little break. Go back over thirty years and take a look at CAMPAIGN! The 1983 Election That Rocked Chicago. Yes it was nasty, the race card came up many times. David Axelrod, future adviser to Pres. Obama was there as a young reporter, taking it all in. But the campaign took only four months and Chicago had its first black mayor, Harold Washington. It was a fun romp.

You can pick up your copy on Amazon, Amika Press, Kindle, Kobo or Nook.

Forest High: Short Stories by Bob Boone
Cover illustration by Krista Franklin.

“These aren’t your typical teacher stories. In the living and breathing world of brick, glass and glue sticks, we want our teachers to leave their real lives—their darknesses, their longings, their secrets and desires—back at their desks and locked in their lockers in the faculty room. But this is Bob Boone’s school. There is no safe place here for the containment of these things. The best Boone’s characters can do is take off their jackets at the door, empty the pockets of their pants—their shreds and crumplings, their histories and regret, their hearts and longings—stuff it all in the pockets and sleeves of their jackets, drape their coats over the backs of their chairs, and just like the rest of us, cross their fingers and pray to God that nothing falls out before the bell rings.” —Billy Lombardo, Author, The Man with Two Arms, Recipient of the 2011 Nelson Algren Award for the Short Story
