The Northwest Independence Novels - Free Sites

Dear Mr Covington,

I'd like to read your novels, but I'm not in a financial position to buy physical copies of them at the moment. You mentioned in one of the podcasts that you'd be willing to provide .pdf copies by email if requested.

Ian C.
Dublin, Ireland


In a really extreme case where you've got some ancient computer running Windows ME and a dial-up connection that can't get them any other way, yes, I will, but it's better if you download them off one of these sites:




I get some flak from my own friends who complain about my giving these books away, and it's true, I suppose I should be selling them, but they were not written for the purpose of making money. They are an attempt to change the world, and it is more important for you to read and understand their message than for me to buy some more Hamburger Helper or get my car fixed. Really.

Hello Harold,

I don't think you are giving these books away. Downloading them in PDF format is similar to checking them out at the library except this library is electronic. One of the most intelligent things the historian David Irving did was to make his writings available for free downloading on his site. Most libraries will not carry his books because he has been branded a Holocaust Denier. And of course you know your books are probably not carried by the average library for being racist which they are but noting is wrong with that as far as I am concerned. Being racially conscious can a will save your life. You may have even saved someones life by helping them be racially aware through your novels. Good job!

Ian from Dublin is pulling your leg. Ireland for the last ten years is known to hand out the most outrageous sums to unemployed people. For example, a family with two adults and two children, where both adults are unemployed, gets over $50,000 per year. This case is the most extreme but you can be assured other unemployed people get collossal sums too.
This being the case I find it very dam hard to understand how an Irish person could suggest for one second that they can't afford $10.
Also, this guy can figure out how to contact you but cannot figure out how to download your books for free.

I downloaded your books for free. I have read The Brigade and enjoyed it. I didn't buy from Amazon for two reasons.
1) I'm not giving them unearned money.
2) I don't want my details on a watch list.

Within the month I'll be sending you $70. $70 cause I intend downloading all your books. If you don't think $70 for all you books is not a fair price then I'll pay what you ask. Just post what you want.

What I'm getting at here is regardless of what your intensions are, if you do work and someone benefits from this work then you are entitled to get paid for that work.
Why can't you spread the message AND get paid. For Christs sake $10 or $15 per book is not going to kill anybody.
