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.

The Kevin Spacey Story: Now One of 2017’s Most Acclaimed Movies

Year End Top Ten Lists: Authentic Glimpses into the Zeitgeist or Self-Congratulatory Liberal Circle Jerk? You Decide.

Speaking of throwing off your chains… it’s important to recognize how powerful film and television are at creating the functional mythos of our time. They are being overtaken by social media/web sources, but the effect is similar: A story is told repeatedly that supposedly explains the true workings of the world – think of the hold the Catholic Church had on intellectual and daily life in the Middle Ages – and through repetition, it becomes accepted as defacto reality.

A New LI Series Debuts: Griff’s Culture Dispatches from the Alamo

“Arise, Cultural Dupes! You have Nothing to Lose but Your Chains!”

The author of the Lonesome George Chronicles starts a new column dissecting culture high and low… Have you ever really, really thought about story? Have you ever thought about how story is the way we make sense of our life, the universe, and our place in it? The stories we tell ourselves have a real impact. “My dad neglected us, he was never home, and he missed all of my baseball games” paints a very different picture of reality than explaining your childhood by saying “My dad worked incredibly long hours so mom could stay at home, so we could live in a safe neighborhood, so there would be money for college for us kids.”

Excerpt: ‘And That Was When the People in the Trucks Shot Her.’

From Volume 2 of The Lonesome George Chronicles

“A bunch of them were firing at her, and the impact of so many bullets pummeled her into the white cinder blocks and sent the child in her arms tumbling back into the waiting inferno…”  – from Bringing The Fire, page 29 by Roy M. Griffis
