As I read the book, I couldn’t help but think of the Underground press of the sixties. Andy’s prose, whether he is aware of it or not, has similarities to that of writers for OZ or International Times in the mid sixties, carrying the same energy, directness and belief. – Peter Duncan, Splank!
“It reads like an obscene cartoon – think hard-boiled Spongebob or red-light-district Animaniacs.” – Cathal McGuigan, The Irish News
“This book fails to explain how cheese is travelling in time” – John Robbins
Is it 1776, or 1984?
No, it’s 2016 – though Axel isn’t sure.
Axel runs Truth Live, a patriotic freedom-loving news site with a cult following. His obsession with the New World Order tests his family, and in Election year, those bonds are about to snap. When Candidate Morgan Rump and Faux News decide to co-opt Axel, the conspiracy theorist goes on a trip down the Illuminati rabbit-hole that’ll leave you howling like you’re part of a mad elite ritual.
A sitcomspiracy, from AG Publishings.
