Fire And Rain

This is my oldest published work with the three companies who have decided that I am to become an un-person, and my work is to be flushed down the memory hole. It was written in 1996 and published in October of 2000.

Fire and Rain contains some rather unkind remarks about a certain Sea Hag who was then at the height of her power and who is now running for President of the United States. In the coming presidential campaign season you will be deprived of my observations and insights on this woman's character, because someone in a carpeted and air-conditioned office made a phone call to someone else in a carpeted and air-conditioned office, and these two faceless individuals decided between themselves that you have no right to read what I have to say about the aforementioned Hildebeest. It might give you pale peasants ideers, and we can't have wretched serfs like you getting ideers in your noggins, now can we?

You have until August 14th to order, and after that, for good or ill, them bad ideers will not be allowed to infect your mind, since someone so much better and wiser than you will have decided you don't get to read this novel.

Watch Your Kindle Copies

Okay, I am still not completely certain how this is going to work, and we won't find out until August 14th when my books disappear from the ken of man thanks to that phone call between carpeted and air-conditioned offices that was made several weeks ago.

However, if you have purchased a digital copy of any Covington novel on Amazon Kindle, and you are keeping it "on the cloud" (which is a la-de-da way of saying you're keeping it on the Amazon server) there is every chance that your Brigade or your Stars In Their Path or whichever one of my ineffably evil works you purchased will simply disappear. 

I know that there have been some notorious cases in the past where Amazon Kindle has bowdlerized and censored literary works, including some famous ones, in order to bring those works into line with modern-day political correctness. This may happen with connection to my work. 

I think that if you actually purchased any of my works electronically, i.e. sprang for the princely fee of $3.99 for the book and actually downloaded the file itself to your Kindle tablet or computer, you should be okay. But if your forbidden Covington tomes are on the "cloud," you need to rectify that situation chop-chop, before the Ides of August.

Oh, by the way, speaking of Amazon.com, if you're doing a search on their site for my books prior to the Ides, make sure you search both H.A Covington and Harold Covington.

The Madman and Marina

One of my books which will be legally suppressed on August 14th, and essentially banned in the United States, is a collection of my short stories called Other Voices, Darker Rooms. It contains among other things the best short work I think I ever wrote, a novella called The Madman and Marina, about Soviet life under Stalin. This is a letter which I received from the Russian translator of The Brigade, to whom I sent the story:

Dear Mr. Covington,

I have read your novella and was deeply impressed by your bold attempt to penetrate the tragic theme of terror in the USSR. I am sure that you have read a lot about those times and grasped the subject.

It's a pity that your text was not edited by some Russian person. For example, Yesenin was a great Russian poet, and this name does not fit to the bloody treacherous Colonel. [I am familiar with the life and work of Sergey Yesenin; that was me being ironic. - HAC]

 In general, I really liked the novella. Thank you for your compassion to the tragedy of Russian people.

Best regards,


If you want a copy of this book before August 14th when it gets pulled offline because certain people with power do not like my political views, here's the link:

The Other Blog


I've been letting my other blog slide, largely because it is simply ridiculous to begin presidential election campaigns 18 months before voting day, but things are beginning to warm up a bit.

No, I'm not turning into an Establishment politician. I just think it's fatuous the way our wee little Movement completely ignores actual politics. Nor am I saying that the electoral process holds out any hope for the 14 Words. It doesn't. I am saying that we need to begin engaging with the real world, no matter how we may detest it.
