Whilst I sit here enjoying C.S. Friedman’s Black Sun Rising, Terry Brooks’ Armageddon’s Children, and William Shatner’s Captain’s Blood–yes, it’s a scifi literature week for me–I thought I’d mention the release of Joe Maguire’s first book, “Brainless: The Lies and Lunacy of Ann Coulter.”
It’s described by the publisher as an “unbridled look at a woman who twists the truth, misleads, plays loose with facts and allusions, and has been accused of plagiarism in hammering home her logic-defying arguments. ‘Brainless’ illustrates the dangers, ironies, and hypocrisies of the Mistress of Malice.” It also claims to include “source notes you can verify.”The book may be no walk in the park for bestselling author and columnist Coulter, but on its cover it does feature a rather flattering photo of her, long legs and all, in a park. As for its not so flattering and abrupt title: Perhaps all’s fair in book wars, given the names of Coulter books, including “Godless,” “Slander” and “Treason.”
And on a completely unrelated booknote, Dan Simmons’ The Terror is due out on January 7th, 2006. Guess I can’t ask for it for Christmas, then. *frown*
Here come the deriding comments about me reading Shatner, I bet.
