Matt Bracken

I am sometimes given credit for founding the "White guerrilla" school of fiction, which of course isn't true. That distinction belongs to the late Dr. William L. Pierce, and also to Michael Hoffman II, both of whom wrote insurrectionary novels before my own Hill of the Ravens in 2002. 

In any case, there is now a whole genre of White armed-resistance fiction.

I haven't read any of this guy Bracken's books yet, but he comes highly recommended. Perhaps some of you can check him out and let me know what you think.

He was a big poster on The Free Republic, a kosher conservative forum/board I was kicked off of about 5 years ago. I have all of his books butt haven't read any of them (though probably eventually will, as a devotee to the genre). He is a smart cookie, having read his guest blog posts on some of the pro-militia/2nd amendment blogs. Think "Unintended Consequences" meets "Civil War II" with a dash of Rawls, "Patriots."

They always seem to be weak on THEE issue that will need to be addressed: Race.

HAC, have you read Gregory Kay's four book series on the South pulling a NWF? Kay writes a column for "Freedom First" and the books are titled "The Third Revolution." Very Southern-styled, chivalry, the whole enchilada, but again, peripheral treatment of race. I'm on the fourth one right now - 650 pages.

It is fiction, but fiction set against a backdrop of the problems currently facing what's left of Amurrica.

All in all, a good read.

He's also written a couple of interesting short fiction pieces gathered into "The Bracken Anthology." "When The Music Stops," "What I Saw At The Coup," and "Professor Raoul X" are highly recommended.

Bracken never seemed to me to be overly racially aware. I question the comment that there is an entire genre of "White armed-resistance fiction". A list of such literature would be greatly appreciated.

One of Bracken's heroes has a non-white girlfriend. Perhaps that qualifies as "WN fiction" in today's ever-blurring line between THEIR fiction and OURS... If so, no thanks!

I think Bracken's "Enemies" trilogy is an excellent tool for recruiting White nationalists. To be sure, his novels are not perfect WN literature in the way HAC's are, but they still have their uses.

While there are some non-White heroes, the bulk of the action is done by Whites. The key point, however, is that the novels show how malicious the US government can be, particularly in the 3rd novel, "The Greater Depression and Civil War 2." In fact, that novel even posits the Northwest as the only remaining "paradise" for a crumbled America.

I think Bracken's novel can easily serve as stepping stones to HAC's NW novels. They're bound to wake some people up.

In closing, I'll summarize the novels this way: If the late Tom Clancy had been commissioned to put into prose nineteen years of Alex Jones broadcasts and conspiracy claims, the result would be Bracken's novels.
