Liberty Island on Hiatus While I’m in Painful Double Mourning

This is just to inform everyone that further books and website content here at Liberty Island are going to be on hiatus for the next couple weeks while I mourn the deaths of my friends Tamara Wilhite and Jack Saltzberg and figure out what I am morally required to do in response to their unexpected passings.

I am in a lot of pain, exacerbated to an unimaginable level over the weekend because of the cruelty of many people in this right-wing media movement – a cause which I have dedicated myself since 2009 at significant personal cost – who seem to believe that they are so right in their political ideology it makes them morally entitled to harass random strangers who are in mourning. I could not have expected this level of abuse from people in my own movement under these circumstances. This has been a real wake up call to me and I’m now going to have to add this new painful experience to what I must consider as I try and figure out how to move forward and what I’m going to do with the rest of my life now.

September 20, 2021 update: Liberty Island’s Associate Editor Jamie Wilson has now been promoted to Vice President and Managing Editor to assist with developing plans for moving the company forward.

A Bizarre Omen Today of What 2021 Promises…

When a Book and a Few Bucks Find You By Divine Providence

So it was around 7:45 AM this morning, just over an hour until Joe Biden’s inauguration as president, when I set off on the morning walk with Maura, our 10-year-old Siberian Husky who remains very healthy, happy, energetic, and full of love.

Our nation’s pageantry was happening on the other side of the continent in Washington D.C., and it played on the TV when we departed, a bit earlier than usual but Maura had requested it then and I could think of no reason not to comply.

Minutes after Tonick disappeared, I shrink back into my alley and turn my face toward the brick wall, tucking my chin behind my black leather collar as the Corp officer floats by on his hover bike. I pull the bandana a little lower over my forehead.

I have the shakes, and my heartbeat thunders in my ears. No matter how many times I swallow, my throat stays dry. I can’t let the robos see my hair. That’s the giveaway, and then GenCor would know to scoop me up, too.

The caught don’t come back.

Tonick’s words echo in my brain, and I smooth my hand over my scalp. Damn.

My starfish-hair has grown so much already. The ends are longer than the kerchief, peeking out like neon signs to anybody who wants to collect a sizeable bounty.

Liberty Island Celebrates LIBERTY IN FICTION

A Press Release for Immediate Release

When in the course of human events our national story becomes lost, confused, corrupted, or otherwise loses its way, it’s time to focus less on politics and more on finding new stories to tell.

Liberty Island has made itself the home for a new generation of storytellers whose work is inspired by a love of freedom and the American spirit. Our books and short fiction celebrate what is great about America — and what is true of the human condition. Most importantly, they embody the idea that freedom is the paramount goal of human beings everywhere.

In our polarized political debates, it is well to remember that freedom is one value we all share. All Americans consider freedom to be their heritage and legacy to future generations.

It’s therefore fitting that this Independence Day marks the re-launch of our website and the release of our new catalog. So, let the spirit of liberty unite us as we celebrate Liberty in Fiction.
